This charming conversion of a former village school sits on the edge of the green in the pretty Cumbrian village of Winton, in the beautiful Eden Valley. Elegantly furnished and thoughtfully equipped, this characterful property is an ideal rural retreat. A bustling and popular country pub lies directly across the green and the ancient market town of Kirkby Stephen is just one mile away, with its selection of shops, pubs and cafes. The local area provides excellent walking and cycling, with golf and fishing also available nearby. The spectacular scenery of the Howgill Fells lies immediately to the south and the property is on the south-western fringe of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk passes through Kirkby Stephen, which also has a station on the scenic Settle-Carlisle railway line. National cycle routes pass through the village. The property is an ideal base from which to explore the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with historic Carlisle, the Borders and Hadrian’s Wall also within easy travelling distance. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub 20 yards.

    After 42 years of self-catering holidays we finally found one of the best. The owners lived in this place before they let it out so it has been furnished and equipped with all you could need. In fact we would be happy to live there! The bed is very comfortable, plenty of storage space and lots of hooks, washer/dryer, i-pod dock, wi-fi; we thought we wanted for nothing. You do hear local traffic going past the cottage but the secondary double glazing is good and the traffic is light. Winton is very well situated for trips in this wonderful area. We hope to be back.

    Great cottage. Just what we were hoping for - an attractive, comfortable, warm, welcoming home from home and only 30 seconds from a lovely pub with excellent food and beer. We'll be back!

    Very comfortable & well equipped, the vase of flowers was a nice welcoming touch. Centered in a lovely rural village with a pub that serves decent food, what my could you ask for; well some decent weather would have been nice! but that's beyond every bodies control.
