    Mr Biddell

    “Absolutely stunning location, beautiful old house, full of character, great period features - including the amazing Aga and the very characterful original kitchen range.”

    The house has been sensitively refurbished and is clearly lovingly maintained. It is wonderful to walk from up onto the adjacent fells from the back door, while being very private, and very quiet, and in the thick of nature with beautiful views across the valley. We had a very warm welcome from Sarah and the cottage comes packed with all the little extras you so often need but may forget to bring. A great stay - we were also lucky to have stunning sunny weather!

The property

Ravenstonedale 4.5 miles.

A lovely 350-year-old, stone-built, semi-detached farmhouse, beautifully situated on a hillside overlooking the Rawthey Valley and Wild Boar Fell. An ideal romantic retreat, this traditional farmhouse has been lovingly modernised to provide creature comforts yet retains many original features such as oak beams, exposed stonework and oak panelled cupboards.

The warm and cosy sitting room has a magnificent traditional range open fire and is a perfect place to relax after a day exploring the area.

A separate dining room which includes a piano features a fabulous stone arched inglenook.

A well-equipped kitchen with both Aga and electric cookers contains a small dining area.

A real home-from-home, this cottage provides a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy a relaxing holiday in a picturesque area. The enclosed rear garden offers beautiful views of the Rawthey Valley with a table to dine outdoors and a stone barbecue.

A small stream flows through the garden to add further to the charm and attraction of this lovely holiday retreat. Enjoy an unpolluted night sky full of stars on clear nights. A wealth of wildlife is commonly seen from red squirrel to abundant birdlife and bats.

It is not uncommon to see a buzzard soaring overhead or a pheasant pecking around outside looking for food.

More rarely the magnificent heron can be seen wading in the nearby beck.

Early risers may be rewarded with the sighting of a deer. Sit outdoors and hear the sound of the curlew flying overhead whilst in the evening listen to tawney owls talking to each other. This cottage is a walker’s delight with access to a hundred square miles of open fell, nearby footpaths will lead you to stunning, hidden waterfalls and tiny becks, while across the valley is an amazing limestone pavement to discover. Fabulous walks in the Howgills or Wild Boar Fell and others can be made from the door. If it rains then the Aga is always comfortingly there on your return to dry things out. Situated within the newly extended Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is a superb base from which to explore the area.

The Lake District is about 20 miles away. Note: This cottage can be booked with Ref 11602, together they sleep 11.

About the location

RAVENSTONEDALE

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.
