    Lovely walks from the front door. House and garden were spacious and well equipped. Beds were comfortable. Welcome fizz and biscuits were much appreciated. Wi-fi was very temperamental which usually would be a blessing on holiday but we did have to spend a couple of half days working and when the wi-fi dropped it was often 12 hours or more before it came back up. We understand there is superfast broadband in the village so a more reliable connection may be possible, especially as there is no mobile signal at all (save possibly for EE?). Sykes were very helpful when we phoned them with an issue.

The property

Shap 5.2 miles.

Positioned in the perfect area for an idyllic escape, Maranatha House is ideally suited to a group of friends or family seeking to explore the beauty of Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Boasting a large social space, this dwelling offers a great abode for those seeking to celebrate or simply unwind in each other's company.

Stepping through the front door of this stone-built abode, you can settle down your belongings in the spacious hallway atop of the tastefully-coloured rug, before heading into the sitting room for a relaxing evening indoors ahead of your outdoor adventures to come; with a multi fuel stove and two plush sofas to recline into, one doubling up as a sofa bed to sleep an added guest, this contemporary-styled room is the perfect host for your evenings, with its bright yellow furnishings bringing a sense of tranquillity to the room.

Moving through the property will bring you to the diner, home to even more colour and a large table for the family to sit together for some quality time.

Just off the dining area is the kitchen which provides all the essentials for a self-catered stay where you can rustle up a tasty treat.

On the first floor you can find four dazzling bedrooms in the form of a king-size with its own gleaming en-suite, two further king-size rooms and a twin; perfect for the whole group to rest in between adventures.

Spend your mornings in the rear lawned garden with your three canine companions by your side and a warming cup of coffee in hand, then take a stroll along the River Lyvennet to begin your exploration of the Yorkshire Dales.

Nearby Shap hosts a good range of amenities, whereas further afield the town of Penrith provides even more exciting with an enticing castle, museum, nature reserve and much more, there's plenty here to explore.

The ultimate stay for your retreat to Cumbria, Maranatha House is a true delight at any time of year.
