    “Sallys End was a wonderful cottage in a beautiful location.”

    It was extremely well equipped and there were lots of thoughtful extras. The owners were excellent and immediately dealt with a few problems that arose during our stay. The garden was secure and had amazing views we could not have wished for more and our 2 cockapoos loved it too

The property

Ravenstonedale 4.5 miles. A lovely, stone-built, semi-detached cottage, beautifully situated on a hillside overlooking the Rawthey Valley and Wild Boar Fell. An ideal couples romantic retreat, this semi-detached farm building conversion is in a lovely, secluded area near Ravenstonedale and provides a chance to escape from it all and enjoy a getaway to this scenic area. A real home-from-home, this cottage provides a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy a relaxing holiday in a picturesque area. A spacious and well-equipped granite worktop kitchen with both Aga and electric cookers includes a traditional farmhouse table at which to enjoy delicious home cooked meals in the traditional country style. A dishwasher makes the clean-up easy. After dinner you can retire to the warm and cosy sitting room with logburner fire to watch TV, browse the internet or play board games and chat. Two bedrooms include a larger bedroom with a velux window affording splendid views of the surrounding fells and night sky. A magnificent king size mahogany four poster bed oozes olde-worlde romantic charm and is complimented by a traditional mahogany mirrored dressing table and wardrobe set. The enclosed rear garden offers beautiful views of the Rawthey Valley with a table to dine outdoors situated on a totally private stone patio and an additional super-sized bench seat on which to sit and take in the view over the valley. Enjoy an unpolluted night sky full of stars on clear nights whilst listening to tawney owls talking to each other. A wealth of wildlife is commonly seen from hares and red squirrel to abundant birdlife and bats. It is not uncommon to see a buzzard soaring overhead or a pheasant pecking around outside looking for food. More rarely the magnificent heron can be seen wading in the nearby beck. In springtime hear the haunting sound of the curlew calling while flying overhead. This cottage is a walkers delight with access to a hundred square miles of open fell, nearby footpaths will lead you to stunning, hidden waterfalls and tiny becks, while across the valley is an amazing limestone pavement to discover. Fabulous walks in the Howgills or Wild Boar Fell and others can be made from the door. If it rains then the Aga is always there on your return to dry things out. Situated within the newly extended Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is a superb base from which to explore the area. Note: This cottage can be booked with Ref 10542, together they sleep 9.

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.

Note: Due to the season, bookings can only be accepted for Christmas on Friday 20th and 27th December
