  • “I can’t recommend this cottage enough, it was even better than I imagined.”

    The character of the place means you’re constantly finding new things to look at, and the layout makes perfect use of the space, it has everything you need! The bath in the bedroom is both quirky and indulgent, and the whole place is in a perfect location to explore the area and then come back to a cosy stay. We particularly enjoyed reading about the history of the Cow Byre. If you enjoy the simple things in life, with that extra splash of indulgence, then this is the place for you. The hosts ...

The pretty, rural hamlet of Barras sits on a high promontory close to Kirkby Stephen and the Eden Valley - a truly stunning and secluded area. A sleepy backwater, it is surrounded by traditional farm meadows and picturesque pastures and fells.

Enjoy many excellent walks and cycle routes nearby, explore Brough, Appleby and the magnificent Howgill Fells, enjoy a drink in Tan Hill - England's highest pub, or take a ride on the Settle to Carlisle railway.
