Close by is the popular market town of Kirkby Stephen with excellent shopping facilities. Choose between the southern boundary of the North Pennines or the northern side of the Yorkshire Dales National Park where you are surrounded by the rolling countryside and wonderful scenery, great for days out walking, mountain biking, riding or paragliding. Travel a bit further afield to the Lake District for another action packed day or visit local attractions such as the Settle to Carlisle Railway, Michelin Star restaurants and the Go Ape Tree Top adventures.

A nicely laid out cottage for small numbers. It worked well for 3 but 4 would be tricky and, although it's great to see attention being paid to accessibility, it would have been hard to have a wheelchair user in residence as the space was too tight for this (we didn't have a wheelchair user with us on this occasion, but I have travelled a good dealRead more with a wheelchair user and note that it would not have been easy, despite the excellent bathroom and ramps).

Curlew Retreat is just that, a retreat away from noise, busyness and civilisation! It is set in rural surroundings, but there are plenty of things to do locally if you're prepared to drive and get out and about. We found it very peaceful and relaxing with everything we needed for a great stay. Our nine year old daughter loved the swing and the summRead moreer house in the garden! Thoroughly recommend it for a lovely time away. Hide

All on one floor, with ramp access as well as stairs which was great for our elderly dog. Great location, easy access to North Pennines AONB, Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. Lovely couple running the cottage, really felt at home here.

We spent a week in this lovely cottage, situated in an ideal location to visit both the Dales and the Lakes. Our hosts were so welcoming. Our children thoroughly enjoyed using the swing in the garden!
