About the location


Kirkby Stephen 1 mile.

The pretty, rural village of Nateby is the gateway to Swaledale and the Mallerstang Edge Moors located near the confluence of the River Eden, just over 1 mile from Kirkby Stephen. Something of a sleepy backwater, the village boasts a traditional old pub, a petrol station which serves as the village shop and a scattering of dwellings and farmsteads built from the local Brockram stone. The traditional market town of Kirkby Stephen, once home to bobbin mills today hosts a variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs for every taste and budget. Enjoy many excellent walks and cycle routes nearby, explore the magnificent Howgill Fells or visit the Settle to Carlisle railway line. A superb location with the whole of the mystical Lake District National Park and the stunning Yorkshire Dales at your fingertips.

Lovely scenery and friendly people. Dog friendly pubs.

Mrs Tilsley, Middlewich, March 2014

A very cosy and comfortable cottage, very good location. Could walk from door for some wonderful country walks, also a very short walk to the local pub which was ideal over the New Year period. We arrived to find that all the beds had been made up, also the owner had very kindly provided some basic essentials which were also appreciated.

Mr Menzies, Worcester, December 2013

Superb base for days out; comfortable and clean accommodation. The local pub serves good food.

Mrs Thompson, Cirencester, October 2013

The location of the cottage was excellent, small quiet village with the most excellent pub just up the road. The food at the Nateby Inn was superb. We were very impressed with the standard of kitchen equipment, and the beds were clean and comfortable.

Mrs Macfarlane, Nelson, September 2013

Very nicely decorated and furnished. Very cosy, felt like home from home. Perfectly situated as a base for exploring the countryside. Delicious food at the pub 50 paces up the road.

Mrs Grubb, Luton, August 2013

Ideal for touring the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Clean and comfortable cottage in a very nice location.

Mr Mumford, Leominster, August 2013

Beautiful location away from the tourist bustle but close enough to travel to any of the places we wanted to see. Lovely comfortable cottage.

Mrs Morris, Bushmills, August 2013

Quiet location, clean village, friendly people, within easy reach of shops, good base for walks and touring.

Mr Hickey, Bishop Auckland, October 2012

In all, we had a wonderful holiday, the cottage was lovely and we would not hesitate to return in the future.

Mr Rahman, St. Leonards-on-Sea, August 2012

I've stayed at this cottage for well over 10 years and the accommodation and setting are both superb. I've become a firm friend of the owner who is always very friendly and helpful.

Mr Dickinson, Thornton Heath, July 2012
