The property

Tebay 2 miles.

River View is a delightful detached cottage on a working farmland next to the owners’ livestock farm, close to Tebay.

Situated in the middle of a stunning valley, with the River Lune running through the bottom, on one side you have the Howgill Fells and on the other Tebay Fells and Jeffrey’s Mount, creating beautiful valley vistas.

This is a lovely cottage to enjoy with friends or family and is ideal for exploring the surrounding Yorkshire Dales and Lake District, or simply to enjoy its lovely aspect.

The cottage has been furnished to enhance the character with latch doors, stone floor, vaulted ceiling and exposed beams.

The welcoming open plan accommodation includes a well-equipped kitchen with dining table and a comfortable sitting area with an electric stove, and picture windows offering triple aspect views to the lovely hills and river.

Outside there is an enclosed patio with superb views; a lovely spot to enjoy an evening drink after a day of activities or exploring.

Delight in the birdlife and see the kingfishers and herons along with numerous other birds in the river below whilst sheep graze the surrounding land, and if you are really lucky you may see a local otter.

Fishing can also be arranged with the owner on this stretch of the river prior to your visit.

There are walks to take from the door with footpaths passing right by the cottage.

Shap is easily accessible and has an open-air heated swimming pool, the highest in England, as well as being home to the ruins of Shap Abbey dating back to 1199 in the secluded valley of the River Lowther.

The pretty village of Orton is just four miles away, described by Alfred Wainwright as one of Westmorland’s loveliest villages, and is in fact situated on Wainwright's coast-to coast-walk.

It has a pub serving locally-sourced food, a chocolate factory, cafés and a small well-stocked village shop and Post Office, all situated around a pretty green.

Orton holds its national award-winning farmers' market with artisan crafts on the second Saturday of each month which is extremely popular with visitors and locals.

About the location


Kendal 13 miles; Penrith 17 miles; Windermere 19 miles.

The charming old village of Tebay sits near the eastern fringe of the Lake District National Park.

The village itself winds its way along the edge of the main thoroughfare and the traditionally whitewashed Cross Keys Inn has been there for 500 years or more.

The inn is reputedly haunted by the ghost of the Tebay Witch, Mary Baynes.

Along with its better-known neighbours of Kendal, Sedbergh and Appleby-in-Westmorland, the area is surrounded by lovely rolling countryside and beautiful scenery.

Nearby Orton has a local pub serving good food, a Post Office/shop, tea rooms and the famous handmade chocolate shop.

A lovely village green surrounded by 17th and 18th century cottages adds to its charm and there is a farmers' market in the village square on the second Saturday of every month.

Take a short drive and discover the unspoilt lake of Haweswater, or take advantage of the excellent road links to the Lake District, the Eden Valley and the Yorkshire Dales..
