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.

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.

    The Old School was a really warm, comfortable cottage. There was a very short drive into Kirkby Stephen and the lakes and Yorkshire Dales are very close. We loved our visit here and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. The local pub, The Bay Horse Inn deserves a special mention as the food, drinks and hospitality are excellent.

    Wow! This was the most enjoyable cottage holiday we have ever had.Spotlessly clean and perfectly equipped with a really homely feel. The village pub is excellent with great food and the surrounding area is beautiful. The walk along the back lanes to Kirkby Stephen is delightful and almost traffic free. Altogether a wonderfully relaxing place to stay!

    Fantastic place to stay. Everything perfect. The location was brilliant for outdoor activities like walking in the Yorkshire Dales, North Pennines and Lake District. Also, great local pub just 40 yards away, which sold great beer and the food was exquisite too! The village was quiet, with little traffic, and all the locals were very friendly too! Definitely would recommend this place, and hope to re-visit it in the very near future!!

    We had a lovely week staying at the Old School. Our highlight was seeing red squirrels when out walking nearby.
