    “This is a fabulous, very rural, old farm cottage.”

    Perfect in November to bring a dog terrified of fireworks, & we heard none. All we heard was the weather, birdsong & the occasional train, which was not loud or annoying. Is this a cottage full of mod cons...no, but the positives far outweigh any not so positives. Barely any pressure in the shower, but one can still shower, so that's fine. There's also a lovely long bath where you can have a lovely long soak. The cottage is very well equipped in the kitchen. We cooked from scratch, most days, & ...

    Perfect in November to bring a dog terrified of fireworks, & we heard none. All we heard was the weather, birdsong & the occasional train, which was not loud or annoying. Is this a cottage full of mod cons...no, but the positives far outweigh any not so positives. Barely any pressure in the shower, but one can still shower, so that's fine. There's also a lovely long bath where you can have a lovely long soak. The cottage is very well equipped in the kitchen. We cooked from scratch, most days, & found everything we needed. There's no washing machine, so we went retro & did hand washing. All four of us saw a red squirrel in the front garden, & the bird life is wonderful. There are 2 Herons at the nearby river. Getting here was tricky, but if you do EXACTLY 5.8 miles after the Moorcock inn you get to the turn off for the farm, and then Sycamore is signposted. Try arrive in daylight hrs though as it's tricky! Those directions are if you've come from the Hawes area. The nearby (4miles) Nateby Inn is the nearest pub and is great with good food. We are sure the details of the cottage said a pub 1 mile away, but it doesn't exist. We highly recommend Sycamore. The peace & tranquillity is wonderful. Some people have written in the visitors book that it needs an overhaul, but we disagreed. It is what it is, and that's perfect

The property

Ravenstonedale 7 miles.

A lovely Grade II listed, stone-built detached farmhouse, on the side of Mallerstang Fell with breathtaking views of the Eden Valley, just seven miles from the village of Ravenstonedale and ten miles from Hawes.

Set on a commanding position in a wild and rugged location, this is the ideal opportunity to get away from it all and enjoy splendid isolation.

This lovely holiday home is perfect for family and friends to share a true back to nature experience with wonderful scenery and wildlife in abundance.

First constructed in the 1800s, this charming farmhouse oozes character and charm, with individual styling and antique furniture throughout.

The kitchen boasts low beams, stone walls and a window seat to enjoy the views, whilst the adjoining summer room has patio doors leading out to the garden.

Also the original pantry is just the ticket for storing provisions and keeping beer and wine at a cool temperature.

The sitting room has a mix of old and new furniture and the open fire provides a great focal point to the room, an ideal place to sit, relax and enjoy a warm drink on a cool evening.

The three bedrooms all boast wonderful views of the fells, and there’s a small bathroom and a ground floor cloakroom too.

With access to 100 square miles of open fell, nearby footpaths lead you to stunning, hidden waterfalls, tiny becks and amazing limestone pavements.

Also the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks are waiting to be discovered and offer a number of interesting places to visit.

Amazing views and a rural location both combine to ensure that guests will always have fond memories of this very special place and will want to return, time and time again.

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.
