History and privacy in this Lake District home
This Elizabethan manor house started around 1350 as a fortified pele tower and has belonged to the Howard family since 1783. Johnby Hall is now home to Henry and Anna Howard who welcome B&B guests looking for a comfortable base from which to enjoy the Lake District, Eden Valley and beyond.
There is just one bedroom in the main house now rented on a B&B basis, and it is superbly private. Kelly Cottage has its own entrance and sitting room, where there are hot-drink making facilities and a small fridge, a selection of books and a TV, and it’s own private dog-friendly enclosed garden. Head upstairs where you’ll find a large bedroom with a king-sized bed and a single bed, both with comfortable memory-foam mattresses, and a bathroom. and upstairs bedroom and bathroom. Due to the current situation breakfasts are no longer in the ‘Great Hall’, but are instead delivered for you to consume in privacy.
As with Johnby Hall’s self-catering properties, the Garden Barn and Studio, B&B guests are free to explore the extensive gardens woodlands are full of wildlife, where you’re more than likely to see red squirrels and deer. The family also keep free range chickens and rare breed pigs as well as being child and dog friendly.
