Sandbed cottage sits in a superb, rural location at the foot of Harter Fell, close to Ravenstonedale, a picturesque village with two pubs serving restaurant and bar meals, there is a playground for younger children and some Gilbertine ruins in the grounds of St Oswald’s church. The area also offers several golf courses, fishing on the river Eden or Lune and horse riding. The ancient market town of Sedbergh is approximately 6 miles away, where you can browse the craft and book shops or enjoy a coffee surrounded by the breathtaking scenery or the “sleeping elephants” as the Howgills are fondly known, perfect for gentle walks or more adventurous hikes.
Sandbed cottage has been thoughtfully designed to retain many original features of oak beams, flagged floors and the occasional exposed stone, creating interest and character. Handpicked pieces of furniture have been lovingly sourced and restored by the owners to create a mix of old and modern, the result being a most charming cottage, ideal for a family or two couples. Walks are in abundance from the door and your dogs are very welcome, the owners also offer two stables for rent by prior arrangement, so that you can enjoy the open fells and bridleways of this quiet and peaceful part of the Eden Valley.
