Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
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 enviably located for all the nearby attractions.

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.
