Set on a working farm in the heart of rural Cumbria, Oakbank Cottage is the epitome of a traditional farm worker’s cottage, lovingly restored to create a quality holiday retreat. Cleverly designed to take best advantage of the views towards Blencathra and to the rear of the Belah Valley (and former Belah Viaduct) from the first floor living areas, guests will marvel at the open landscape, dotted with sheep farmed by the neighbour and be assured of a comfortable stay.
The cottage has excellent facilities with quality kitchen and bathrooms and has been dressed with comfortable furnishings to compliment the large amount of beams and solid oak throughout the property. The wood burning stove is at the very heart of the cottage, the lounge full of exposed beams and having deep window sills giving further opportunity to take in more of that view.

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.
