The Fold is a recent barn conversion on the edge of the village with stunning views across the Eden valley to the Penines. There is a private parking area to the front, and an enclosed garden and patio to the rear. The living area is spacious and full of light, with a woodburning stove, should you need it. A fully equipped kitchen and dining area lead off, with a newly completed sunporch to laze in, watching the clouds drift across the Penines. Also downstairs is a bathroom, and entrance study, with double futon for extra guests, if required. Upstairs is a double bedroom with views to the Penines, and a shower room, with powerful shower. The property has full central heating.
A large selection of books is available, TV, and broadband, if necessary. But you are on holiday.... The furnishings are homely and comfortable - this is my winter home!

About this location
The Cumbria region
From Crosby Garrett there is open access to the fells, with a variey of walks from the door of the property. These include the open fellside, riverside walks, disused railway walks, including the famed Smardale Gill, now a nature reserve, with its iconic viaduct. The Coast to Coast path passes close by.
The Settle/Carlisle railway runs just above the property and crosses the end of the village on another impressive viaduct. There are frequent passenger services to Carlisle and to Leeds. This is a completely rural area, surrounded by fields and woodland, with great night skies. Red squirrels are frequent visitors, and there is a regular owl at night.
Further afield, the Yorkshire Dales are just a few miles down the road to the east; the Howgills are even closer to the south, the Lake District is within easy reach to the west, and the Penines loom to the north. Quick access to both the M6 and the A66 open up possibilities for longer trips.
Kikrby Stephen and Appleby are within easy reach. Both are quiet market towns wioth a viariety of shops, banks, chemists etc. Kirkby Stephen has a number of restaurants - Indian, Chinese, English - and fish and chip cafes. There are several excellent inns/pubs serving food. Penrith and Kendal both offer a range of shops and supermarkets, as well as historic environment
