Property Description

Farm location

Standing in rolling countryside, adjacent to the owner’s farm, these ground floor (W8226) and first floor (W8227) apartments are well equipped and furnished, providing excellent holiday accommodation for a quiet break. The farm, with marvellous views of the Pennines all around, is situated in the beautiful Eden Valley which lies within the triangle of the Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines, making it an ideal base for touring. Eden is an outstanding area for walking, whether you enjoy a hike on the high open fells or a gentle riverside stroll. If you cycle, you’ll love the quiet country lanes full of wild flowers and birds. There are attractions for the whole family including canoeing or a steamer trip on Ullswater (20 miles). Enjoy a ride on a restored railway high in the North Pennines or catch the Settle to Carlisle railway line (5 miles), famous for its wonderful scenery and the 24 arched Ribblehead Viaduct, The unspoilt destination will inspire and refresh you at any time of the year and a lively calendar of events throughout the year includes festivals, farmers’ markets, country and craft fairs, and traditional agricultural shows. The holiday apartments are located just 5 miles from the traditional market town of Kirkby Stephen with its shops, pubs and restaurants, and the picturesque former county town of Appleby, which has a leisure centre and is 5 miles in the other direction. Shop and restaurant 5 miles, pub 3 miles.

All on first floor: Living/dining room/kitchen. 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We enjoyed our stay very much. A pleasant surprise to find a bottle of wine and some milk on our arrival. Aug 2012.
  2. A lovely cottage, well maintained, decorated and fitted out. Very welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts. We enjoyed our stay. June 2012.
  3. Well arranged and comfortable. Quiet, apart from livestock noises which didn’t worry us. Perfect base for exploring the area. May 2012.
  4. The upstairs cottage was everything we needed and felt spacious despite it’s diminutive size. It’s based on a farm but on the edges and it’s never an issue. As regular visitors to the lake district national park staying just outside in the Eden valley was great, close enough to get to our regular places but also close to the dales which were amazing. The nearest town is Kirkby Stephen about 2 miles away, it’s a great place to start walks with many specific walks on maps available from the newsagent, the river Eden runs right through it and it even has a full size co-op supermarket open till 10pm, we really didn’t need to go far all week (except to enjoy the amazing roads and scenery running down into the dales). It was a last minute choice for us but absolutely the right one, we’ll definitely be looking at this property again next year. June 2011.
  5. Location, a good base for Dales & the Lakes, quiet, well equipped and of high standard throughout. Feb 2011.
  6. Good quality conversion. Excellent sound proofing. Good layout. Aug 2010.
  7. It was an amazing weekend!! Feb 2010.
  8. The barn conversion was well presented with all necessary amenities. The location was ideal for traveling within the Eden Valley and Lake District. Good cycling to be had. The owners were welcoming and allowed us our privacy. We woudl consider coming again!!!Feb 2008.
  9. The property was buetifully placed to see the area & get around the locality. We used a local farmers market that provided excellent food. Feb 2008.
  10. Good quality conversion. Excellent soundproofing. Good layout.
  11. Great base to explore the Dales, Pennines and Lakes. Very clean, comfortable and cosy accommodation with a friendly, welcoming host. Dogs are welcomed in most pubs, places of interest etc so great canine holiday. Would definitely recommend! Aug 2006.
  12. Overall the holiday was very relaxing. We were made to feel very welcome with a chilled bottle of wine in fridge. Recommend it to anyone, just what we needed. July 2006.
  13. A lovely quiet place to stay with interest all around us on the farm. - Aug 2006
  14. The Old Granary has been really nicely refurbished to accommodate two flats. Ours, upstairs was more than adequate. It had all the facilities we needed and was clean and spacious. Although it is on a farm, the animals are in the fields and there are no unpleasant smells. The owner goes about his daily chores without intruding on our holiday. It is in a very quiet location and you can relax and recharge your batteries, with fresh air and stunning sceneries all around. The owner had left a bottle of wine and a pint of milk in the fridge, which was a very welcoming gesture. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives or stay there again in the future. Aug 2006.
  15. An amazing little cottage to spend a few relaxing days. March 2006.
  16. Excellent accommodation, modern yet with plenty of character. Lovely quiet location, plenty to explore in the vicinity. March 2006.
