The Experience

A wood-burning stove sits in an original stone fireplace; natural slate, stone and wood add to the warmth and subtle earthy colours will calm you. Views soar from every window and you can hear the beck trickle past while you look out for red squirrels, wild fell ponies and sheep – this is delightfully untrammelled countryside and there are gorgeous walks from the door.

Two immaculate bedrooms are on the first floor, another on the second with even better views and all can be super king size doubles or twins. Find a wet room and extra loo on the ground floor. The kitchen has all the bells and whistles for large groups, you eat at a convivial table and you’re left a welcome hamper with local chocolate, crisps, fresh sourdough and a bottle of wine.

Walk across fields to the pub for a pint then return to the enclosed courtyard garden with seating for summer evening suppers relishing the views and the tranquillity.

The neighbourhood

Walks in the Eden Valley and the Yorkshire Dales will blow your socks off and you can join a guided walk with owner Richard. Ravenstonedale has two pubs including the celebrated Black Swan. Kirkby Stephen, an ancient market town, has independent shops, cobbled yards and historic buildings. Hop on the steam railway to Settle or Carlisle; visit Sedbergh, the 'book town'.

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 skills 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.
