Reviews about the Advert 44327
Advert details 44327
The Cottage nestles at the foot of the slopes of Harter Fell, part of the spectacular Howgills, with stunning limestone pavements on the other side of the dale just a short way away. These little known hills and fells are a paradise for walkers, horse riders or mountain bikers, with easy access to open fell. The area is ideal for a good strenuous walk or ride up breathtaking Wild Boar Fell or a gentler meander along a valley bottom where your only companions are likely to be free roaming fell ponies, sheep and pheasant. Whichever you choose, the scenery is delightful with buzzards and the call of the curlew the only sounds to be heard. If you are lucky you may spot one of the area's wild deer or red squirrels. The Cottage is situated in a perfect position for exploring both Lakes and Dales. It is only 7 miles from the book town of Sedbergh and 3 miles from Ravenstonedale, a lovely little village with a pub serving restaurant and bar meals. There is a playground in Ravenstonedale and some Gilbertine ruins in the grounds of St. Oswald's church, famous for it's triple decked pulpit and inward facing pews. The area also offers river fishing on the Eden, Belah and Lune. The Settle-Carlisle railway is nearby and vintage buses tour this spectacular area. The area surrounding the Cottage is excellent for horse riding, both for experienced and novice riders. To support riders we offer 2 stables.

The picturesque village of Ravenstonedale lies in an area of outstanding natural beauty. While the surroundings are idyllic and offer visitors peace and tranquility Ravenstonedale is an ideal location from which to explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales national parks. The nearest market town to the Cottage is Kirkby Stephen, about 7 miles away, where there are a variety of pubs and restaurants offering good dining. There are also many shops supplying groceries, gifts and antiques. Kirkby Stephen is a recent winner of the Calor 'Best Village in Britain' award. Sedbergh is a small town nestling in a valley at the foot of the Howgill fells. It is becoming increasingly famous as for its annual book festival. Sedbergh is an ideal base from which to explore the Howgill Fells, a compact cluster of hills rising to about 2,000 feet about 40 square miles in area between the Lake District and the YorkshireBird WatchingBuzzards, curlews, woodpeckers and thrush are but just a few of the species regularly sighted nearby. Within a short walk bird-watchers can be well off the beaten track with the possibility of sighting many species and the certainty of enjoying the wonderful countryside. The Howgills & Wild boar fell are nearby and offer excellent opportunities for walking. The Howgills are less crowded than the central Lake District fells and gradients are not usually as steep.
