The Experience

The Byre has a huge central slate chimney, a vaulted beamed ceiling and an open-plan living area in earthy colours. It’s a light, warm and sociable space and views from every window soar over the romantically remote Dales. The well-equipped kitchen is a joy to cook in.

Two sumptuous bedrooms downstairs have super king beds which can be twins, plump pillows and duvets and views of windswept hills; en suite bathrooms sport whirlpool baths with overhead showers. Stone steps lead down to an enclosed courtyard garden with fire pit and furniture for long summer evenings outdoors. Light the wood-burner and snuggle down with a book, watch a film on the big TV or head to a comfy sofa and lots of books on the mezzanine floor.

Find a basket of fresh sourdough, locally made crisps and chocolate, a bottle of wine. There are interconnecting doors to The Haystore, so take both for a party of eight, or all three for a jolly get-together with up to 14.

  • Having long walks with your dog in this rugged landscape, coming back to hose yourselves down with the outside tap, stepping into such warmth and comfort
  • Eating outside on summer evenings, watching red squirrels scurry, wild fell ponies munch and looking out for owls and buzzards
  • Hunkering down on foul weather days, snug with the underfloor heating and wood-burner

This is a delightful cottage that has been created from a barn into a tasteful, modern and very attractive hideaway. It is luxurious and every thought has been made for the guests' enjoyment.

The neighbourhood

Ravenstonedale is a five-minute drive or a 25-minute walk over fields or a quiet lane. Here you'll find two pubs including the award-winning Black Swan. Kirkby Stephen is a 10-minute drive, an old market town with historic buildings, small shops and cobbled yards. Hop on the Carlisle to Settle railway, visit Sedbergh, the 'book town', cycle quiet fell roads or join a guided walk with owner Richard.

Local points of interest from Richard and Carly

  • Enjoy a fabulous meal and wonderful selection of cask ales & wines at the award-winning Black Swan in Ravenstonedale. Number 20 in the 2023 Top 50 UK Gastropubs the menu revolves around locally sourced, seasonal Cumbrian dishes. Dog & family friendly.
  • Take a hike in the fabulous Howgill Fells; as Alfred Wainwright once described them “a herd of squatting elephants” the Howgill’s are often unfrequented and offer a superb range of hikes; many of which can be started straight from the door.
  • Wrap up and enjoy an evening of stargazing using the guide & kit provided. Located in a Dark Skies reserve we have very little light pollution meaning that on a clear night you can see thousands of stars and even distant galaxies!
  • Take a bike ride to Pendragon Castle, described as a romantic ruin, founded by Uther Pendragon, father of Arthur Pendragon of Round Table fame. The 6-mile ride through the countryside to get there on single track lanes is magical.
  • Ever wanted to learn how to navigate in the hills or mountains with a proper map? Book a day of guided walking with owner Richard and learn some new skill along the way. Pop away the guide books…he’ll have you planning your own routes in no time!
  • Visit the local dog friendly attractions with your furry friends. Brough Castle Ice Cream Parlour and Tearoom, Lowther Castle and Gardens, Grizedale Forest and Whinlatter Forest, The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway or how about the Ullswater's 'Steamers'.


Richard and Carly

For Carly and Richard the seed was sown many years ago about living in the countryside and having a holiday let property which would allow them to share their love of nature and the outdoors with guests. Their eco credentials are sound with ground source heating, solar panels and their own borehole, but they are keen to go further in their journey towards biodiversity and sustainability.
