Town: Quietly situated between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, the tranquil village of Ravenstonedale lies at the foot of the Howgill Fells. This charming little village is a thriving rural community with many beautifully preserved traditional dwellings. The picturesque Ravenstonedale boasts a lovely parish church as well as the remains of an old Gilbertine Priory. Once a year the area still hosts its annual agricultural show and even now hill farming remains the principal income of the area. A. Wainwright, the famous author, once described the settlement as âone of Westmorland's loveliest villages'. The area provides many excellent walking and cycling routes and nearby, visitors can see the Settle to Carlisle Railway Line, the magnificent Howgill Fells and the stunning Yorkshire Dales, making this a wonderful location no matter what time of year.

I stayed at ash Pot Barn with 6 other ladies. We had a great time. We couldnt fault our stay in anyway. We would definatley return, especially in Summer as it has a great BBQ area overlooking the Fells, But was cosy in the winter when we went. We walked to the Fat Lamb pub which took about 1 hour 10 mins. Secluded location but perfect for relaxing and staying in, great kitchen/living area. Bedrooms spacious and everywhere very clean.

We enjoyed our stay. The cottage was comfortable and
well laid out. Very clean and newly decorated.
Bedrooms would benefit from a little more furniture.
The drive was quite steep but fine once we got used
Liked the open plan living area and the modern
Liked Spartan bedrooms least but they were clean.
Scenery beautiful. Good walking straight from the
door. The owners were very helpful.
