Redolent of a long history, Johnby is a most unusual and singularly beguiling place

The Elizabethan manor house started around 1350 as a fortified pele tower and has belonged to the Howard family since 1783. It is now home to Henry and Anna Howard who welcome bed and breakfast guests looking for a comfortable base from which to enjoy the Lake District, Eden Valley and beyond.

Located in a pretty cottage in the garden, the Studio is a luxury open-plan suite offering superbly comfortable double or twin accommodation; an extra bed in the sitting-room area makes this a great option for families. Kelly is in a seventeenth-century wing of the house and offers twin or double B&B accommodation arrangements, with its own delightful sitting room.

The Garden Barn is the newest addition to this fabulous Wolsey Lodge, it houses two bedrooms, a shower room, as well as a lovely big sitting room and kitchen – minimum 3 night stay.

Breakfast, which is taken in the ‘great hall’ where the history of the house is evident, from family coats of arms to antique oak furniture. The extensive gardens and woodlands are full of wildlife including red squirrels and deer, the family also keep free range chickens and rare breed pigs as well as being child and dog friendly.
