In a quiet, rural location just a mile from the Cumbrian village of Newbiggin-on-Lune, in the heart of the Howgills, these three Lake District cottages are located on a family-run farm in tranquil and relaxing surrounds. These delightful Grade II listed Newbiggin-on-Lune cottages have been carefully created from old farm buildings, and each has been comfortably furnished and decorated, retaining character and charm, including original features, oak beams and exposed stonework. Featuring upside down accommodation, the cottages have open plan living areas on the first floor to take advantage of the lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Positioned in spacious grounds, each of these Lake District self-catering cottages has outdoor seating and enjoys shared use of all the lawned and terraced areas, including a fabulous children’s play area.

- “Lovely cottage, beautiful landscape and great hosts.”
- “We spend a wonderful week here. They accomodation is of high standard and very homely. The landscape is awsome. The location makes both the Lake District and the Dales National Park easy to access. Our daugther could blow some steam off on the little playground or by trying to pet the free roaming sheeps (who didn't want to be touched and gave her a nice chase). The owners are absolutely lovely and very friendly. They want out of there way and beyond to help us when we had trouble with a garage after our car broke down. This was the best holiday accomodation we ever had in the UK.”
- “great weekend away”
- “Lovely place to stay. Very clean. Owners fantastic. Adults and children enjoyed our farm tour. Children asking when we are going back. Even has wifi for teenage son!”
- “The cottage felt homely, warm and welcoming. It was a fantastic place for me and my friends to catch up with one another again in a relaxed environment. The location itself also helped as well, but the accommodation was excellent without doubt.”
- “Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was very clean, well equipped ( apart from tongs - needed for the grill !). Directions were good, communication was good. Beds were comfy, shower powerful, heating easy to use.”
- “We are a family of 5, but we never felt cramped as the rooms were spacious. The property was in a great location and the owners were friendly.”
- “A great place for a family holiday. The kids loved being able to help around the farm. The owners were very friendly and were happy to allow our kids to help with the lambing and the horses. You really do not have to go far from the house; the nearby disused railway gives you access to wonderful scenery whether walking or cycling. The nearby trout farm was a good day out and provided a meal to boot.”
- “Lovely, quaint property in a beautiful location. Nice views from the chairs in the front yard. Very friendly hosts and an excellent location to explore the Dales and Lake District.”
- “This was an ideal setting for visiting nearby attractions. The owners and their family were very nice people and nothing was too much trouble. My family enjoyed the tour of the farm and meeting some of the animals. In passing we were always asked if everything was ok and did we need anything. It's these little things that make a difference.”
About the location
Kirkby Stephen 6 miles; Sedbergh 12 miles.
The tranquil village of Newbiggin-on-Lune lies at the foot of the Howgill Fells, quietly sitting between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. It is a delightful rural village with a thriving local community and many traditional old dwellings. Hill farming is the principal means of income in the area and an agricultural show is still held once a year on the fells, echoing the markets and shows of days gone by. The local river, the Lune for which the village was named, is very popular for trout fishing. Nearby Ravenstonedale, once described by Wainwright as one of Westmorland’s loveliest villages, boasts three pubs, all serving fine ales and modern cuisine. The area offers many walking and cycling routes, both on and off road, whilst the nearby attractions provide something for everybody. Visit the Settle to Carlisle Railway Line, the magnificent Howgill Fells and the stunning Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks. A superb location at any time of the year.
