Description


This cosy holiday property has an interesting and eclectic mix of styles and is situated in the heart of the village of Newbiggin-on-Lune. The house was originally built as a barn in the 19th century and retains many rustic features. The village is set at the foot of the Howgills, which form a triangle of mountains between the communities of Sedbergh, Ravenstonedale and Tebay. The Howgills make for excellent walking terrain. Wainwright considered them some of his favourites. They are still relatively undiscovered, and you can walk here for miles without seeing another soul. The location is ideally placed for exploring both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Shop and restaurant 5 miles, pubs 1½ miles.

About the local area

Kirkby Lonsdale is in Cumbria's south east in between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales; an historic market town in an area of great natural beauty with riverside and country walks.

There are many riverside and country walks in the area, and historic buildings to see in the town itself, including the 11th century Norman parish church. While some market towns have become spoilt over the years, Kirkby Lonsdale and its surrounding area of outstanding landscape still retain the same beauty appreciated by Constable, Turner, and Ruskin.

Further north lays Kirkby Stephen at the head of the Eden Valley, a popular centre for walkers and situated on the Cumbria Cycle Way - a great route for all keen cyclists.

Half an hour's drive from Kirkby Stephen is the beautiful area of Silverdale - an Area of Outstanding Beauty, offering a truly inspiring escape from the pace and pressures of everyday life. Don't miss the headland of Jack Scout leading to Jenny Brown's Point. From here, look out across the bay to see Humphrey Head where, so legend has it, the last wolf in England was slain.
