Nestled in the glorious countryside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is Fellgarth Barn, a luxurious hideaway for six to eight people. Formerly a barn and milking parlour this indulgent gem has been lovingly brought to life using a mixture of elegant furnishings, charming antiques, high spec appliances and a keen eye for light and space. Boasting three gorgeous en-suite bedrooms, a magnificent open-plan living space, a handy games room and a foodie's dream of a kitchen it makes an ideal holiday home for a family or small group of friends to make the most of this less explored part of the Dales.

Situated just outside the village of Casterton, a satellite to the charming town of Kirkby Lonsdale, Fellgarth Barn is perfectly placed to make the most of the area. If you're keen to don your walking boots and stretch your legs then why not head up Eskholme Pike right from the door? Alternatively, take in the old drover's road, a gorgeous walk made more special by "Sheepfold" art installations by artist Andy Goldsworthy along the way. Cyclists will find a wealth of quiet roads and bridleways to explore. You could take the "Fell Road" from Fellgarth Barn and head to Dent, a wonderful Dales village with cobbled streets and a well-loved brewery tap at the George and Dragon Hotel. There are good local pubs at both Casterton and Barbon and a fantastic choice of cafes, restaurants and quirky shops in Kirkby Lonsdale. In May and June, a walk through the grounds of Whelprigg House is delightful with wonderful displays of colourful azaleas and rhododendrons (please keep to the footpaths).

If you'd like to explore slightly further afield there's plenty on offer. Fellgarth Barn's privileged situation on the western side of the Yorkshire Dales and within easy reach of the Eastern Lake District makes it a fantastic spring board for exploration. You can catch the wonderfully picturesque Carlisle to Settle Railway at Dent or visit the magical White Scar cave system near Ingleborough. Sedbergh, known as England's book town, is less than 10 miles away and well worth a visit. While beautiful Windermere in the southern Lake District is just a half hour's drive. However you choose to spend your visit, Fellgarth Barn is a dream hideaway you'll want to visit time and time again.
