    “Spacious 3 bedroom conversion”

    The Cow Shed is the last in a line of conversions of the original Ghyll Bank. It is not a working farm as others have written, as all the properties on the site are rental. That being said, you are in the fells and are surrounded by fields, sheep and the country side. The first rental in the building is called the Byre I think, which we have hired before. A spacious 4 bedroomed building. There are also 2 houses, one large accommodating several families and a smaller one. ...

    The Cow Shed is the last in a line of conversions of the original Ghyll Bank. It is not a working farm as others have written, as all the properties on the site are rental. That being said, you are in the fells and are surrounded by fields, sheep and the country side. The first rental in the building is called the Byre I think, which we have hired before. A spacious 4 bedroomed building. There are also 2 houses, one large accommodating several families and a smaller one. The Cow Shed is 3 bed, 3 bathrooms - non en suite however. 2 upstairs bed/bath and one downstairs. Al very spacious and clean. The beds are all singles and can and are zipped together to make doubles. The kitchen is spacious and modern and has all the mod cons. Lots of plates, pots and pans and ample for the 3 couples that stayed. The lounge/TV/dining area is again spacious, double and treble settee and single comfy chair.. ample again. Outside there is a BBQ, table and 6 chairs on the terrace you share with the others in the Byre and next door. Ample car parking, wifi is adequate and improved since our last stay and now there is a clear phone signal for O2 users. I think a new phone mast has been placed near the brewery in Staveley village. In the village there is the brewery bar which is very popular, the butchers, a spar and other shops and cafe's. I suppose you are close enough yet far enough away. Ghyll Bank is perched on the fell side, behind the village and is a 30 minute walk away. It is refreshingly remote. The family in the Byre had a dog with them which they kept on the leash at all times due to the sheep in the fields. There was the odd cob web high in the ceiling windows and the due to the lovely weather, the building does get very warm... but not complaining. Had a lovely week in the Cow Shed and no doubt will return for a 3rd time.
