  • "Beautiful, well equipped cottage in a very peaceful location."

    The cottage has been renovated to a very high standard. It’s very easy to get to and parking is right outside which is a plus. We arrived to find a bottle of red wine which was a very nice touch. The cooker was very easy to use in fact we only had one meal out as we loved eating our meals sitting at the dining table with the french doors open. There are two local pubs , one of them just two doors away. Some lovely walks nearby but cottage is also in an ideal position if you wanted to walk the howgills or take a short drive to the lakes. Ravenstonedale is a small village but Kirkby Stephen which is only a short drive away has a decent sized co-op for shopping. We absolutely loved it here. We would recommend staying here and we will definitely be coming back.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Linden Cottage."

    The cottage is delightful,very spacious and cosy at the same time. It’s in such a tranquil setting and it’s lovely to hear birds singing when you wake and throughout the day. Facilities at the cottage are first class. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at this cottage and we will be booking again in the coming months.

  • "Very neat an extremely clean property in small village nevertheless with 3 pubs with restaurants within 2 miles, one very close by."

    Excellent hill walking in the Howgills which are much quieter than the nearby Lake District and almost equally rewarding

  • "We came for a romantic get away and that is indeed what we got!"

    The cottage is cosy, clean and exceeded our expectations! I have already recommended you to family and friends as I know for sure they would love it! The fact there is a pub about 10 seconds from our cottage was brilliant, the beds were so comfy and I had great sleeps. As we came into the cottage there was a bottle of wine waiting for us, and that is just the perfect touch! So thank you so much for such a lovely stay, we will definitely be returning! X

    Convenient location for The Lakes or The Dales. Good walks from the house up into the hills, or just around the village if you wish. A short drive to Kirkby Stephen for supplies. Good pubs nearby for meals. Everything you need for a quiet break.

  • "The most comfortable and spotlessly clean cottage we have stayed in."

    We really enjoyed our stay and it was lovely to return after a day exploring to this cosy cottage. The owners have thought of everything and the cottage has all you need for a stay away from home. We can't wait to return.

  • "The cottage was perfect for us & I can’t remember when I was last in such a well appointed place with really excellent detailing."

    Just two things which in no way detracted from our week, but worth mentioning. The lighting in the main sitting area downstairs could be on a dimmer. Proper directional reading lamps would’ve been great. Lastly, no place to hang really wet stuff & Cumbria is wet ... we loved it.

  • "The cottage was a smart, comfortable conversion, in a quiet village setting."

    Fresh and clean with excellent facilities, tastefully presented. Village pubs were excellent for food and beer and good service. A car is probably essential but travelling the area provides fantastic views and an excellent road network.

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.
