Situated in the peaceful village of Ravenstonedale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Cooper's Cottage is the ideal base for launching into both the Dales and the UNESCO Lake District National Park. The cottage sleeps up to four guests across two bedrooms with outlooks to pastures front and rear where sheep peacefully graze.
Ravenstonedale offers a wide variety of activities including walking, cycling, golf, horse riding, a children's play park and tennis courts. The fells and footpaths that surround Ravenstonedale are a paradise for walkers, whether your idea of a good walk is a stiff mountain climb or a meander along a gentle valley, and include The Howgills, Orton Scar and Smardale Nature Reserve. The area around Ravenstonedale is popular with cyclists (both roadies and mountain bikers) with a myriad of uncrowded narrow country lanes undulating through superb Cumbrian scenery. Circular routes on roads that meander through open fells and moorland taking in small villages and hamlets are aplenty. The village itself boasts three "foodie" pubs for when you don't wish to cook but need refreshment. The Kings Head and award winning The Black Swan are both within 5-10 minutes' walk of the cottage. Yet another pub, The Fat Lamb, is only 1.5 miles away so you are truly spoilt for choice.
The scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway can be accessed from nearby Kirkby Stephen, offering some of the best views of the Yorkshire Dales to the south, Cumbrian vistas to the north, picture postcard railway stations and the city of Carlisle and its castle and museum at the top of the line. Coaches operate heritage trips in summer to Hawes and Barnard Castle. In short, if you are looking for a choice and variety of holiday activities, Cooper's Cottage has it all.
