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 1 mile away, with its selection of shops, pubs and cafés. 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 very cosy, comfortable and full of character. It had everything we needed; a spacious, cosy lounge, a well equipped kitchen and a very comfortable bed. Along with the pub across the village green serving delicious meals it was just right for a relaxing weekend away.

    The Old School provided a well-equipped, comfortable base from which to explore the Eden Valley. We found interesting walks straight from the house.

    A very warm, well-equipped cottage. Easy parking and walks from the door. Pennine Journey passes through the village. Winton is a small village with a pub, no shop but Kirkby Stephen is not far with all amenities. Great location for the North Pennines, Yorkshire dales. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and return.

    A super clean comfortable cottage in a small quiet village a pleasant walk away from Kirkby Stephen with its wide range of shops and facilities. However the best pub serving exclent food is only 50m away from the cottage! This was our second visit and we are already planning our third. Need I say more?!

    Beautiful Old School House on the village green. Photographs of the school children taken in 1901 hang in the cottage and are a real connection with its past. The interior has been sympathetically updated and with the high ceilings gives you a feeling of light and space. Clean, comfortable and well equipped, one of the best places we have stayed in. The local pub, The Bay Horse is a minute away and was warm and welcoming, families and dogs also welcome. They serve a Sunday Carvery, lunch and dinner, would recommend. The market town of Kirby Stephen is just over a mile away and has a wide variety of shops. A perfect stay.
