Byre Cottage, built of the local red sandstone and converted from a barn some 17 years ago, is an ideal holiday cottage for two persons set in the lovely village of Langwathby. The cottage with accommodation all on the ground floor level, provides a warm and welcoming environment whatever the time of the year. In winter the solid fuel Morso stove and in the summer the delightful enclosed garden add to it's charm.
Langwathby is in the beautiful and peaceful Eden Valley, within easy reach of the M6 and the town of Penrith. There are many walks and attractions in the immediate facility, including the well known "Brief Encounter's" cafe at Langwathby railway station. The station is on the famous Settle to Carlisle railway making Byre Cottage ideal for those who do not have their own transport. Unusually so for this day and age, the village retains a store and a post office both of which can be found just a short walk from Byre Cottage. The Shepherd's Inn is just 100 yards from the cottage. Edenhall village is very picturesque and only a mile from the cottage. Slightly further afield is the Village Bakery at Melmerby , with a lovely cafe serving organic products. Little Salkeld has another organic cafe at the working watermill.
The Eden Valley provides excellent walking and cycling and is only 8 miles from Ullswater in the Lake District and within easy reach of the Northern Pennines, Yorkshire Dales and the Scottish Borders. National Trust Property, Acorn Gardens is close by as is Lowther Castle with beautiful grounds and recently reopened "lost gardens". For those wishing for a more challenging environment the mighty peaks of High Street, Helvellyn and Blencathra are all within 25 minutes drive.
The Settle to Carlisle railway line is fully open and offers a scenic route for passengers' to enjoy.
