Amazing little place
We are so happy with we found this little cottage. It was perfect. So well thought out for the space available. The king size bed was super comfortable. We loved the glass patio doors and seating area overlooking the amazing view. We were not short of anything. We loved the slipper and dressing gowns we felt like we were at an exclusive spa! The location is about 10 mins away from Kirkby Stephen which has a Co-op and lots of little shops and petrol station. There are plenty of pubs in the area although perhaps not within walking distance. We chose to eat in most nights. The kitchen has everything we needed to make a full Sunday lunch. The local area is perfect of outdoor activities. We spent the week gill scrambling and mountain biking. The Lake District is close enough to visit but we preferred enjoying the quieter local areas. The secure bike storage was a big plus point! The owners Mark and Lisa couldn?t have been more helpful. We will certainly return. Thanks you for creating an amazing place.

Stunning , just STUNNING !!!
Stayed here for a long weekend courtesy of our daughters , and one of their boyfriends... from the moment we opened the door , it was WOW !!! The place just oozes character , charm and coziness Beautiful scenery on your doorstep , red squirrels, little mouse in the wall and birds galore. The bath in the bedroom was amazing , so much imagination has gone into this place. Very very quirky , would love to return in summer! A visit to the Tan Hill pub is a must , such a remote place , Kirkby Stephen was a welcome surprise , good range of shops etc . Would thoroughly recommend a stay at the cow byre .

Lovely Birthday Break!
Have had lovely week away at this beautiful cottage! Waking up to those beautiful views every morning was a real treat! Location Is great area for both the yorkshire dales and for visiting the lakes. Not far from main roads. In peaceful area and views overlooking the dales. Amenities All the facilities you could want really, the roll top bath being the highlight! The log burner was also great and the bed very comfortable. Kitchen could maybe do with extra shelve or something for storing food otherwise can not fault it! Recommendations Walking- Ingelton Falls (South Yorkshire Dales), Aira Force (Ullswater) Local Food- Mango Tree Indian (Kirkby Stephen) Places- Scar White Cave (Ingelton), Appleby Spa Hotel (Appleby), Mountain Biking (Grizdale). Thankyou for a lovely stay and the little treats left for us on arrival was a lovely touch will recommend to family and friends :)

My Birthday celebration
Just way too lovely! Cannot describe this location! The guest house feels more like 5star hotel! I feel like buying the place forever, so I can come by whenever I like. The home owner as given everything a couple could need to make this stay most comfortable! The homeowner gave us very warm hospitality. AMAZING is all I can say! I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a honeymoon or just getaway from busy city life.
