We enjoyed our week very much in this lovely old cottage which is full of character, and located in stunning wild open countryside. Facilities were good, and we particularly liked having the wood burning stove going in the evenings. There are so many wonderful places to visit: the Eden Valley is really beautiful, and the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District are easy day trips. We took a ride from Kirkby Stephen to Settle on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, and the scenery along the way is breathtaking. The week went too quickly!

Remote, cosy little cottage and just what we were looking for. This is the second time that we have stayed here and have loved every minute of our holiday. A little corner of heaven here. It is a truly magical place. We were sad to leave and come home but are booking up for a return visit next year.
Mrs Lightowler

Our contacts at the property were wonderful people and helped make our stay even better. They are to be commended for their enthusiasm and attention to the guests of the property. The gardens were impressive and showed that a lot of hard work had gone in to tending the enclosure. We appreciated and respected the eco ambitions of the property and had a very restful stay.
Mr Montgomery

A lovely quiet place, perfect for a retreat.
Miss Wood

The location was wild and remote and full of wonderful wildlife. The neighbours, who look after the property for the owner were fantastic people. For us it was just perfect.
