    “A fantastic Christmas getaway.”

    We spent 4 days here over the festive period and it was perfect. A gorgeous hamper awaited us on our arrival and a cheese selection in the fridge! Loved the decorations too. The kitchen was well equipped and we successfully cooked Christmas dinner. Oven/hob very efficient and easy to use.

    We spent 4 days here over the festive period and it was perfect. A gorgeous hamper awaited us on our arrival and a cheese selection in the fridge! Loved the decorations too. The kitchen was well equipped and we successfully cooked Christmas dinner. Oven/hob very efficient and easy to use. The cottage was never cold but also never too hot and we made good use of the log burner (pleased we brought a huge bag of our own as we got through them quickly!) detailed welcome guide which was also enjoyable to read. Solid floors throughout the downstairs, which was good as it never stopped raining whilst we were there, so we didn’t have to do balancing acts on the doormat! Also useful if bringing a dog so they can’t get muddy paws all over the carpet! A rug by the seating area would be appreciated though, as any blankets we put down for our dog just slipped everywhere and it would have felt a bit more cosier. Enclosed garden front and back so we could safely let her out too. Good storage facilities in bedrooms and bathrooms, limited cupboard space in kitchen but we managed. Airer provided which was useful for drying all out waterproofs and the muddy boot box was handy, though we didn’t use it as boots needed to dry. Info on recycling would have been appreciated as we brought all ours home (we don’t live far away and being Christmas we had a lot!) Cottage was spotless in all areas you could see, however when I dropped something, I noticed that under all the sofas the floor was filthy! Also found a polo under the bed when I thought I had lost a sock under there and dusty behind bedside cabinets. A little more attention wouldn’t go a miss. Info for travellers: 2 washing tabs & 2 dishwasher tabs provided. Logs for one use of fire provided, with enough fire lighters and kindling for a few fires. Co-op in Kirkby Stephen had some for sale. Tea towels provided Kitchen utensils, cutlery, pots & pans are plenty but bring your own roasting trays if you want to do a Christmas dinner!

The property

Within earshot of the soothing sounds of the Scandal Beck, across the fields from the 14th century St Oswald’s Church and just around the corner from the beautiful Kings Head pub, is Linden Cottage. This cosy, converted Blacksmith’s workshop is nestled in Ravenstonedale, a peaceful north Cumbrian village, just a few short miles away from its neighbouring town, Kirkby Stephen. It makes a lovely base from which to explore the beautiful Eden Valley. The ground floor is a warm open space, with a comfy sitting room showcasing a woodburning stove at its heart. Warm wood throughout harks back to its ancient roots along with a beautiful wooden floor. Dining at the table in this special room is a treat with views through the French doors across the village. The kitchen is open-plan and boasts a whole range of appliances, designed to make your stay a real home-from-home experience. Upstairs, there is a bright and airy bathroom, fully tiled with a bath, shower over, basin and WC. Two beautiful bedrooms with exposed wooden floors finish off this delightful cottage. Each have views over the village and hills beyond. The master bedroom features a double bed, whereas the second offers zip-and-link beds giving you the option of a twin setup or super-king setup. To the front of the property is a welcoming patio with seating, the perfect place to enjoy breakfast in the morning sunshine. With two great pubs and situated just a mile from the main road, the village is such a handy place to stay, giving easy access to Cumbria the Lakes, Eden Valley and the North Pennines. Explore the area on foot or via the many cycling routes. Visit the Settle to Carlisle Railway Line and take in the wonderful scenery. There is so much to see and do in the surrounding area, making this the perfect base for you and your loved ones.

About the location

RAVENSTONEDALE

Kirkby Stephen 5 miles; Sedbergh 10 miles.

The tranquil village of Ravenstonedale lies at the foot of the Howgill Fells, quietly situated within the newly extended Yorkshire Dales National Park. A delightful rural village with a thriving local community and many traditional old dwellings, Ravenstonedale boasts a charming Parish Church and the remains of the old Gilbertine Priory. Hill farming is the principal means of income in the area and an agricultural show is still held once a year, echoing days gone by when both markets and fairs were held in the village. Once described by the famous author, A Wainwright, as one of Westmorland’s loveliest villages, the area boasts many walking, horse riding and cycling routes, whilst the nearby attractions provide something for everybody. Visit the Settle to Carlisle Railway Line, the magnificent Howgill Fells and the stunning Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks. A superb location at any time of the year.
