Guest Reviews


    • “Great place to stay!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed at the cottage with a group of friends. The house is lovely and has anything you need, even fiber internet access. But still traditionally decorated and very cosy. Breathtaking views around the house. If you want to go hiking, just walk out of the house. There is lots of information provided by the owners, such as hiking maps and everything about nearby tourist attractions. The owners were lovely people and quickly responding when we had questions. We will definitively go back in the future and I can highly recommend this cottage.”

    • “We had an absolutely wonderful week at Spintgill Cottage. The cottage was really olde world but with a modern kitchen and bathroom. The view from the garden was lovely and it was so peaceful. Sometimes sheep would come and graze on the snowdrops and we saw red squirrels. Would definitely return.”

About the location


Kirkby Stephen 5 miles; Sedbergh 10 miles.

The tranquil village of Ravenstonedale lies at the foot of the Howgill Fells, quietly sitting between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. A delightful rural village with a thriving local community and many traditional old dwellings, Ravenstonedale boasts a charming Parish Church and the remains of the old Gilbertine Priory. Hill farming is the principal means of income in the area and an agricultural show is still held once a year, echoing days gone by when both markets and fairs were held in the village. Once described by the famous author, A Wainwright, as one of Westmorland’s loveliest villages, the area boasts many walking and cycling routes, 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.
