Farm location

Standing in rolling countryside, adjacent to the owner’s farm, these ground floor (W8226) and first floor (W8227) apartments are well equipped and furnished, providing excellent holiday accommodation for a quiet break. The farm, with marvellous views of the Pennines all around, is situated in the beautiful Eden Valley which lies within the triangle of the Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines, making it an ideal base for touring. Eden is an outstanding area for walking, whether you enjoy a hike on the high open fells or a gentle riverside stroll. If you cycle, you’ll love the quiet country lanes full of wildflowers and birds. There are attractions for the whole family including canoeing or a steamer trip on Ullswater (20 miles). Enjoy a ride on a restored railway high in the North Pennines or catch the Settle to Carlisle railway line (5 miles), famous for its wonderful scenery and the 24 arched Ribblehead Viaduct, The unspoilt destination will inspire and refresh you at any time of the year and a lively calendar of events throughout the year includes festivals, farmers’ markets, country and craft fairs, and traditional agricultural shows. The holiday apartments are located just 5 miles from the traditional market town of Kirkby Stephen with its shops, pubs and restaurants, and the picturesque former county town of Appleby, which has a leisure centre and is 5 miles in the other direction. Shop and restaurant 5 miles, pub 3 miles.

As others have said, The Granary is ideally located for those exploring the Lake District and it is around 50 minutes drive from Keswick. It is in a nice, rural location, which makes it very peaceful. Good proximity for local walks and a short drive from Kirkby Stephen for anything you may need. For dining out, you won’t go wrong with The King’s Head at Ravenstonedale, which is a short drive away. When we stayed at The Granary, there was nobody in the apartment upstairs, but there is plenty of parking for multiple vehicles, so I can’t see it being an issue. The apartment itself is clean, warm and quite modern. The only thing it lacks is wifi, and phone signal in the general area is hit and miss. Some may see this as a negative, but it meant we could be left in peace and truly get away from normal life. There is a collection of leaflets in the apartment for walks/days out and such, and we just took advantage of wifi in cafes and pubs to help plan activities. We’d definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend you book a stay. Thanks for having us.

In a beautiful setting and very good for visiting both the Lakes and Dales. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped but it did not have WiFi or a phone signal. This made it awkward as there was no information book provided. If we'd have known this we would have still gone, but researched the locality before hand.
