Dodds Howe gives you the best of both worlds...in fact it gives you the best of three worlds! Not only are you just a quarter hour drive from Bowness on Windermere but you can retreat to the beauty and serenity of the Lyth Valley with its damson blossoms and slower pace of life when the day is over. And the third world I mentioned, well what may appear to be a sleepy rural Cumbrian village is actually home to the The Punch Bowl gastro-pub which was renovated and is still owned by a local Lakelander his and his team's efforts earning a culinary mention in the 2020 Michelin guide.
