    Lots of local walks, and a short distance to key lakes areas and the Yorkshire dales. Ideal if you have a dog. We are planning to return next year

  • "Very enjoyable stay with our border collie."

    Extremely easy to find with the provided directions. Plenty of parking available. Amazing setting alongside the farm, with plenty of nice walks available straight out of the door. Perfect for us with our dog. Well situated for the Yorkshire dales and the Lakes. The house was extremely well equipped, had everything we could have needed. Not sure how a previous reviewer had complained about the kitchen facilities. Had everything from a pizza cutter to pans and chopping boards. Nothing wrong with the kettle and microwave. DVDs provided which we watched all of during our stay, a great selection of films for the evenings. My partner didn't find the bed particularly comfortable, however I didn't have any issue at all. WiFi was unexpectedly good! We only briefly met the owners, but they were very welcoming. Couldn't have wished for a more peaceful stay for a nice chilled bank holiday week. Willow (the dog) was in his element watching the farmer and his dogs through the window. Would definitely return!

  • "We liked the cottage."

    It was warm , a good size , the wifi was efficient, the shower was good. It is in a good location and we liked the walks from the door. It is basic , the parking and access are not great. It gives the impression in the ad that there is parking for three cars this needs to be clarified. The kitchen could be better equipped. It needs a new kettle and microwave. However the cottage is good value for money. As long as the costs remain the same we would use it again and recommend it.

    Thankyou for your feedback, I will look into your issues , The parking outside the cottage has room for 1 car if more spaces are needed there is parking around the back of the house for upto 5 cars if needed not sure about the access we have people arriving in 4x4s and larger vehicles !!

  • "Loved the cottage, even better than expected Knew where the owners were if we needed them - but the stay was very peaceful and quiet, cold and stormy outside which made the cottage even nicer inside."

    There was a leak upstairs, hopefully you saw our note in the book - caused us no problems, just wanted you to be aware. Ours was a relaxing weekend before Christmas and arrival of our baby which is due in a few weeks, perfectly did the job Thank you v much, maybe see you again

  • "Nice cottage in a very quiet area, it took a bit of getting used to living upstairs and sleeping downstairs."

    Marion has a bad back and found it awkward to get down and see out the low windows. We did find the bedroom curtains very thin and were waking up with the light showing through. But all in all if we are coming up to the area again we would look at staying with you again.

  • "Really lovely property really enjoyed our stay."

    Everyone was very friendly. Cottage had everything we needed and great to find somewhere to accommodate our 3 children. One small bit of feed back is maybe just to provide a stair gate for the living area just to help keep little ones off the stairs. Overall a lovely stay will definitely look to book again.

    Thankyou for your lovely feedback , pleased you had a lovely stay with us , so sorry about the stairs issue we have a stair gate that people use when requested Property Owner

    It's very spacious and warm, the bedrooms are comfy, it was perfect for our family of 5 (and the dog). Views from the cottage are beautiful and the kids enjoyed the upside down layout. There are fantastic walks from the doorstep, and nearby Kirkby Stephen (10 min drive) has nice cafes, shops and walks.

    The cottage was perfect for our family unit and the owners are lovely. They couldn’t do enough for us. The views are beautiful and there are great walks you can do. We would highly recommend this cottage. The price was a lot cheaper than other cottages, so we were sceptical of whether it was going to be alright but we were pleasantly surprised.

    ...... The perfect authentic farm cottage, nicely placed astride the Lakes and Dales, for exploring both. World famous moorlands and dry stone stone walls, glorious bird sound, little lambs leaping and fluorescent green fields. Genuine and friendly pubs in the village. Walking the nearby old railway footpath to spectacular viaduct recommended. Warm and friendly hosts Mike and Diane, with welcoming collie sheep dog. Helped by perfect spring weather, wall to wall sunshine, crystal clear sky for star gazing, and perfect silence .... aah.

  • "We planned our holiday around doing the 3 peaks."

    We managed to complete 2 of the 3 mountains. This cottage was an hour drive away from the peaks but it was a lovely drive to them. It was nice to come back to a lovely spacious cottage after such a challenge, only thing missing for me was an hot tub. We will definately be back to complete the 3rd mountain and we would consider returning to this cottage. The owners were very friendly and it was nice and quiet and the scenery aroung the place was stunning. When we book again it will be for a longer period of time. 3 nights was not enough.

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.

For those wishing to escape into quiet and solitude, a short walk onto Horton Fell will reward you with stunning views of the Lune Valley. For the strenuous treks, the Howgill Fells offer challenging walking and biking activities whilst paragliding is also available. Trout fishing is available locally at Bessie Beck plus excellent bird watching at Sunbiggin Tarn, whilst for a rainy day Platform 3 Play, a children’s activity centre, provides a great day out for the children. The local pub makes an excellent evening out, with live music and good ales whilst at Ravenstonedale there are two renowned gastropubs.

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.
