    “Great welcome from the owner with ...”
    Great welcome from the owner with clear instructions on how to use the lovely fire. The kitchen was really well equipped and the beds were really comfortable. The cottage is well placed for some great walks. We walked up Wildboar fell from the cottage and stopped off in The Fat Lamb for a swift pint before returning back to the lovely warm cottage. Also went to High Cup Nick, Great Shunner Fell, Howgills, Nine Standards Rigg and Calf Top. Kirby Stephen is not far away and good for shops (COOP), ...

About the location


Kirkby Stephen 5 miles; Sedbergh 10 miles.

The tranquil village of Ravenstonedale lies at the foot of the Howgill Fells, quietly situated within the newly extended Yorkshire Dales National Park. 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, horse riding 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.
