Built in 1848 Yew Tree House is a superb example of a Georgian house and adjoining, former coach house which has been transformed into a comfortable and well equipped holiday cottage. Attached to the owner’s home and accessed via a sweeping driveway, Yew Tree Cottage has its own private entrance and enclosed patio with bicycle store. On the ground floor there is a family bedroom with double bed, additional single bed and a great en-suite bathroom. The staircase leads up to a bright, spacious, open plan living and dining area with wooden floors, beautiful beams and a multi-fuel burner. There is a separate, well-equipped kitchen which looks out over the garden and another bedroom with a kingsize bed and en-suite shower room. In addition to its own private patio/seating area, guests are also welcome to enjoy the owner’s rear garden which includes a large lawned area, a patio area, fire pit and barbecue.

Yew Tree Cottage is located in the sleepy village of Crosby Garrett which is just 4 miles from the market town of Kirkby Stephen with a good variety of shops and cafés. Kirkby Stephen also has a railway station which is on the Settle-Carlisle line, and the steam trains pass through Crosby Garrett over the viaduct. Kirkby Stephen has official ‘Walkers are Welcome’ status and the surrounding area offers a wealth of designated footpaths and bridleways, including Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast walk which stretches 192 miles between St Bees and Robin Hood’s Bay, passing through three National Parks.

With the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks both within easy driving distance, you will be spoilt for choice with places to visit. Kendal is a 40-minute drive, Kirkby Lonsdale, Hawes and Dent are 45 minutes away, and Windermere, Keswick and Ingleton are all within an hour’s drive. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 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.
