This holiday home has a quirky ‘upside down’ layout so that the living space can take advantage of the cottage's magnificent views and can sleep up to nine people.

Beautifully situated on the side of Wild Boar Fell and overlooking the Howgills is this outstanding stone-built, semi-detached barn conversion. This lovely property is just four miles from the village of Ravenstonedale and has been lovingly renovated to combine original features with modern convenience. The open-plan living area boasts a vaulted, beamed ceiling which is open to the eaves, a fabulous bespoke kitchen and a warming wood-burning stove. This wonderful home-from-home is an idea place for a walking group, a large family or two smaller families to enjoy a holiday together.


Great location, lovely lay out of the property with plenty of space for all friends and family. The owner was very welcoming and hospitable. Very warm and cosy place to relax and have a fun New Year break.

Good potential but let down by avoidable faults
Great setting, House was warm and plenty of hot water but owners went for maximising the number of beds and didn't equip the property for a potential nine residents. for example the sitting room only had two settee's. Two of the four bedrooms lacked bedside tables and bedside lights. The dishwasher was poor and we had to frequently rinse plates. Dishwasher safe cutlery was not provided so had to be washed seperately. . There were only three items of 'oven to table' ware. We were a party of 4 so just about managed with this but it would be problematic with a larger group. We normally find stock food items [ sauces, oil, etc] left by previous visitors but not here. No tumble dryer, no airer, no clothes line. Fortunately we had good weather. We knew there was no DVD player so brought our own but we normally expect that as standard. We knew there would be no WiFi but strongly suspect that this could be wired from the owners property next door. All in all a disappointing rental from a party with a significant amount of experience of renting houses in the UK.

We had a fantastic time away as a large family group. Loved the views, garden and situation of the property. All age groups of our family party loved it! Thanks to the owner and family for being so helpful.
Mrs Morris

We love walking and hiking and visiting small towns so Ash Pot Barn was perfect - enough space for 9 of us and close to the things we wanted to do. The cottage was great - big open kitchen and living room, enough bathrooms, and warm rustic d?cor. My girls loved the old spinning wheel.
Mr Bosch

We all liked the wonderful location of the Ash Pot Barn, the picturesque setting, the spacious accommodation particularly the sitting room and lounge area and most of all the hospitality of the owner, were all contributing factors in having a memorable holiday with my family.
