A security bond is taken on the understanding that you and all members of your group will take care of and cause no damage to the property rented during your stay. Any refusal to pay a security bond will mean the booking cannot be made or will be cancelled, at your own loss.
A security bond of £1000 is pre-authorsised against a registered credit or debit card 7 days prior to your arrival date (through Yapstone HolidayRent payment portal). This amount is held for 7 days. If the property sustains damage, loss of contents or any additional costs incurred during your stay (including extra cleaning), we will contact you with a report, including a quotation for repair. The deduction(s) will then automatically be made from your security bond. If the property is left as you found it; with no damages, extra cleaning or breakages the £1000 security bond will be 'released' back to the card you registered with us. Please note that if a security bond payment is charged due to damages; this will show on your bank statement as the amount deducted. For example if we charge £50 you will see a deduction of £50. The remainder of the security bond was never 'taken' as a payment so you will not see any refunds of for example in this instance of a refund of £950.
Previous Damages: If for whatever reason there has been damage caused to the property by previous guests please let us know by email, immediately on your arrival.
Should the bill for repair/losses/damages amount to more than the security bond that is lodged, we will contact you with an invoice for immediate payment.

Howgills House was perfect for my retreat. All the guests were blown away by the stunning setting and the comfort, and we had everything we needed and more. The customer service support was second-to-none. I wouldn't hesitate to book another retreat here. Thank you.
Lindsey Beveridge | 24 January 2024
We had a fantastic stay at Howgills house for my friends hen do. The place was absolutely perfect, it had everything we could have needed and more and was immaculate! Communication with the team was brilliant throughout, from booking to arrival. The owner popped over a couple of times during our stay to make sure everything was okay which was much appreciated. Would 100% stay here again and would recommend it to all friends and family. Thank you Howgills for the best weekend for our friends hen do, all of the hens had an amazing stay 😀
April Johnson | 11 November 2023
It was very good location for my holiday. My family along with my dear friends i truly enjoyed the Howgills Accommodation
Dinil Parackal | 18 August 2021
Accommodation exceeded expectations. Everything was clean and comfortable and plenty of space for the whole family so we didn't feel we were on top of each other the whole weekend. Hot tubs were the cherry on top of a fantastic property. The only negatives are the size of the bunks, the lower bunks are very low with not a lot of head room and as we are quite a tall family it proved a challenge getting in and out of them. The other was the small kettle, a water boiler or more than one kettle wouldve been more appropriate. But honestly that's just us nit picking what is otherwise a perfect property- already planning our next trip back to Howgills!
Danni Allman | 11 August 2021
It was an amazing House, Amy and Nigel were great host very accommodating to our needs they have thought of everyone and everything in this beautiful House. Everyone loved the Hot tubs,it was very spacious for all 26 of us inside and the outdoors to the garden and BBQ area We have been recommending it to all our friends and family.Great place to relax.
Farooque Patel | 30 July 2021
A touch of luxury, everything perfect and lots of clever touches. The kitchen is professional standard and has plenty of fridge space. There is a very large common room area with lots of comfortable seating. Bedrooms have high quality bedding and comfy towels, and everyone is also provided with a separate towel for the hot tubs. Outdoors there's lots more weather proof comfortable seating which is where we ate each day - if you fill every bed, the dining room is slightly small. There is a small astro area where children might like to play with a beach ball (bring one rather than a football, since it won't damage the building). There is space for several cars but if you are bringing lots of people you may need to plan where to park - we had two minibuses and a trailer which fitted easily onto the parking space. The house is in the countryside so there it is very quiet - the main thing you can hear is sheep! The owners are very responsive if you have any questions. Wifi works well. All bedrooms are ensuite which is fantastic. No TV in the bedrooms but there is a large TV in the common room. Sedbergh is nearby for shops, and supermarkets are happy to deliver to the property. Be aware of rubbish collection which is Thursday - you need to bring the bins out.
Chris Boardman | 11 July 2021
We stayed at this holiday accommodation in the Yorkshire dales in August 2020 . We appear to have been exceptionally fortune in being the first guest since the lockdown, during which time there had been renovations. The entire place had a new and fresh feel to it. The photos on the website did not do the property justice, it was much larger in reality than the photos had given us the impression of. The kitchen facilities were all well apportioned and the drinks cooler was a welcome bonus, especially as the week we were there was very hot. The 2 hot tubs were a big hit and the owner kindly arranged for one to be converted to a 'cold tub' at our request, again, very welcome in the hot weather we had. The scenic and calming views whilst sitting in the hot tub were a wonderfully relaxing experience. From all ages, we had a great time here and felt quite sad when we had to leave! This was our first time holidaying up north and we are left with lovely memories of the beautiful scenery, lovely locals and friendly helpful owner. We very much hope to have the chance to visit again.

Beautiful building in a gorgeous setting very comfortable and clean ...everthing there that we could have wanted for a great stay ...hot tubs Were brill
Kate Saunders | 02 September 2020
We had a great weekend staying at Howgills house! The house was spotlessly clean, spacious and very well equipped! The bedrooms were clean, comfy and each room was like its own little world away from the rest of the house, when you were in your own room you couldn't hear a thing from outside, perfect when staying with others! The beds and sheets were very comfy! We had plenty of towels, bath mats and toilet rolls supplied! The kitchen was very well equipped we didn't miss anything during our stay, everything we needed was provided! The pool table was a huge hit! We had great fun playing pool and listening to music on the speakers. The items provided for breakfast were a lovely surprise and we enjoyed eating together in the big dining room. So much to say about the house I'm trying to remember it all! The lawn was great fun to play on and ideal being astro as we had had weather during our stay but this meant that everytime we had 5 minutes of sun we could play out without getting muddy! We would certainly love to return in the future, Dawn and Nigel were very helpful and accommodating and kept in good contact right up to and during our stay. Thank you for a great weekend!
Brian Cauvin | 25 August 2020
We recently stayed at howgills House to celebrate my partners 30th birthday with family and friends. There was 19 adults and 2 children and It catered for all our needs and more. Everybody loved there stay and the house is very spacious and stunning! All the bedrooms are lovely and come with a beautiful en suite finished to a very high standered. The hot tubs are an added bonus which over look nice countryside. Nigel and liz are lovely and very helpful. Our stay at howgills House was a fantastic 5 stars from all of us and we will definitely be returning again and would highly recommend it to anyone.
