Built from stone, this property has all the classic charm of an old, country cottage and comfortable accommodation for up to five people. Originally part of a farmhouse built in the 1700s, this property has been sympathetically restored to offer accommodation for groups of up to five people. It has retained much of its charm through original features such as exposed beams, a bread oven and a cooking fireplace in which the owner has installed a wood-burning stove; perfect for cosy winter nights. For the hazy summer evenings and a bite to eat outside, there is a large, private lawn. With off-road parking for up to four cars, the cottage is env...iably located for all the nearby attractions.
Amenities: Radiators fuelled by multi-fuel stove in sitting room. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, digital LCD TV, DVD, CD player/radio, small library of books/games. Laundry room with washing machine, tumble dryer & drying rail. All fuel & power inc. in rent. Bed linen & towels inc. in rent. Cot & highchair available. Off road parking for 4 cars. Lockable bike storage. Large, enclosed lawned garden with patio furniture (BBQ available). Separate play area for football & other games. Sorry, no pets & no smoking. Shop 5 miles, pub 10 mins walk. Note: Stairs in property are steep & winding with a rope handrail - may be unsuitable for less mobile. Note: Stouphill Gate B&B; is next door with 2 en-suite bedrooms (one with disabled friendly facility) at additional charge. These can be rented with the cottage to provide additional accommodation for larger groups - contact owners for details.
Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
Town: A small and compact village, Ravenstonedale has much to offer the visitor seeking a quieter experience than the nearby Lake District National Park provides. It is a pretty village; traditional whitewashed stone cottages and stone walls border the fields, whilst the Raven brook trickles by. St Oswald's church is largely from the Georgian era, comprising a solid structure with a simple square tower. In addition, there are elements from older buildings incorporated in it, and the base of a Saxon cross just outside. To the north of the church, excavations in 1920 revealed the foundations of a 13th Century Gilbertine Abbey. Ravenstonedale is a fantastic base for exploring the Lakes to the west or the Yorkshire Dales, just a short drive to the east. Those who prefer to stay closer to home can explore the Howgill Fells, the rounded hills which signal the start of the Lakeland ranges.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

This very old and charming cottage had plenty of space for the two of us.
The friendly house owner explained how to use the coal-stove and told us about the history of the house. The only downside was that we missed a wi-fi possibility for internet. We also had a bad receiving for the I-phone. We liked the quiet surrounding with sheep and beautiful hills.

We had lots of help and advise from the owners who lived next door about local ameneties and how to keep the stove in overnight! The cottage was pretty and had everything we needed. The location was very handy for the North East, The Lakes and the Dales. The only small complaint I had was that the settee was not very comfy but overall we had a super time.
Charming cottage and owners with amazing hill views!

We had an excellent time at this cottage. The original features including the flagstone floor, beams and even an old bread oven were brilliant! The setting is perfect - remote enough with brilliant views but close enough to the village and 2 great pubs. Owners were really welcoming and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Overall a really good relaxing break!

We had a week in this lovely cottage which was excellent throughout. The owners who live in the adjoining cottage were the font of knowledge when it was needed. Good location with two pubs within walking distance both with excellent food. If you wish to cook the facilities in the cottage kitchen were very good. The wood burner on cold evenings was a delight. All in all a brill holiday.
