The property

Hidden away on a wonderful working farm, overlooking the lush valley and the idyllic village of Crosby Ravensworth, is Cottage on the Hill.

Set across the ground floor and encompassed by the glorious scenery of the Eden District of Cumbria, this colourful cottage is perfect for a small family of four or a group of avid walkers travelling with their beloved canine.

Admire the character and charm of this humble dwelling, as you take to the striking red Rayburn that sits proudly within the country kitchen, and whip up a delicious feast for all to enjoy whilst gathered at the dining table.

Settle down in the warm and restful sitting room and enjoy the heat from the open fire, or head outside to the well-kept lawned garden for a delicious homemade picnic as you bask in the warm summer sun.

Continuing through the property you will discover a spacious king-size bedroom with calming yellow hues and traditional furnishings, and a delightful twin with pretty striped carpets and two gorgeous antique brass beds, both of which are served by a pretty family bathroom lying just a few steps away.

See the imposing remains of Shap Abbey or visit the National Trust owned Keld Chapel, both just a pleasant drive away.

Discover ancient woodlands and impressive herb collection at nearby Acorn Bank Garden & Watermill.

Take a wander around the impressive Lowther Castle, with its herd of deer grazing within the grounds.

Spot beautiful wildlife in Thacka Beck Nature Reserve or hop in the car and head for the beautiful Lake District.

The Eden Valley offers a huge range of individual shops, from bakeries to breweries, galleries and craft shops and is an ideal destination for a whole host of amazing adventures, including mountain biking, rock climbing and walking.

Appleby-in-Westmorland is a short drive away and is a major stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway.

Explore the Howgill Fells and all the footpaths and bridleways it has to offer.

Make the most of precious time with loved ones on an escape to Cottage on the Hill.
