Property Description

In lovely surroundings of peaceful open countryside, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this award-winning, detached barn conversion, with its own small garden, is built around a cobbled courtyard and reached by a ¾-mile long farm track. Ingenious design has retained the barn’s unique character, while creating very spacious and well-equipped accommodation, ideal for holidays at any time of year. Set away from the farmyard, it is surrounded by farmland where sheep and cows quietly graze. There are wonderful walks straight from the door, with the fells and mighty Ingleborough in sight. At Ingleton (6 miles), there are miles of paths with steps and bridges along a wooded valley where waterfalls abound, and nearby White Scar Caves display classic features of limestone caverns. The very pretty market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is just 4 miles away, offering shops, inns, restaurants and a golf course.
Cowder Barn is ideally located between two National Parks – the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District – both within easy touring distance and offering some of England’s most dramatic scenery. Rushing rivers flow down the main dales of Wensleydale, Swaledale and Wharfedale, surrounded by the high peaks of the Pennines, and high waterfalls, such as Hardraw Force near Hawes, make spectacular sights. Everywhere grey-stone villages blend effortlessly into an unspoilt landscape. The Lakes offer a land of exciting contrasts – high mountains and deep lakes in an ever-changing array of colours. Fishing and water sports can be enjoyed, or for the less energetic, sheepdog trials, Cumberland wrestling and fell races make good spectator sports. The coast is easily accessible, with the wide sandy beach at Morecambe only 16 miles away. Shops 4 miles, pub 1 mile.

Sitting-room with open fire and French door to garden. Large kitchen with dining area and wood-burning stove. Large walk-in larder. Utility with separate toilet. Double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet. Three further bedrooms, each with five steps up to threshold; two twin bedrooms and one large bunk bedroom with additional pair of bunk beds (for +2). Large south-facing sun room with full-length glazed doors to enclosed cobbled courtyard. Two bathrooms, each with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Games room with table tennis, darts and wood-burning stove.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This property met all our needs and some, we were a party of 8 ranging from 20 months old to 85 years, the accommodation was very spacious and we kept losing our way, as to which room belonged to who. We received a nice welcome with home made cakes and milk in the fridge, they only thing I looked for and could not find was a hair dryer, there may well have been one but who was looking at me on a bad hair day. May 2012.
  2. Quiet secluded but an excellent pub/restaurant half a mile straight down the farm track, (the highwayman). Dont think its ever been a house but a great farm conversion, wonderful for 6 adults, really big kitchen, very nice tv room, 9 log fire, 3 really nice bedrooms, all in all great place to escape to either for a weekend or a full weeks holiday. Kirby Steven is 10 minute drive away excellent. Oct 2011.

  13. Lovely, homely cottage feel. Warm and welcoming when the open fires are going. Not luxurious, and the kitchen in particular feels a little dated now (old units, but the appliances are all fine) but this was our 4th visit so we obviously like it! Feels like a second home now! Feb 2010.
