Little Barras is a gorgeous period property for up to six people in the peaceful hamlet of Masongill in the Yorkshire Dales, once home to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It has welcoming and comfortable accommodation, stylish decor, far reaching views and bags of character to charm you. Should you have members of your party with limited mobility, it makes an ideal location with a perfect ground floor bedroom and shower room. The cottage also suits families with its sweet, enclosed garden and second living room. Ideal for teens and tweens to commandeer as their own!
Masongill is a charmingly sleepy little hamlet with plenty of outdoor adventures to be had on the doorstep. If you're keen to don your walking boots then why not take a circular walk to the "Cheese Press Stone" high above the hamlet? Along the way, you will pass one of the "Sheepfold" art installations by renowned landscape artist Andy Goldsworthy. Fell walkers will be delighted that mighty Ingleborough, one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, lies just six miles from the door. Potholers are spoilt for choice and cyclists will find a wealth of quiet roads and bridleways to explore with a huge choice of routes - some easy, some more challenging. For the less ambitious you could simply head to nearby Thornton-in-Lonsdale and reward yourself with a pub lunch at the Marton Arms!
If you'd like to explore slightly further afield there's plenty to do. Little Barras' situation on the western side of the Yorkshire Dales and within easy reach of the Eastern Lake District makes it a fantastic springboard for exploration. Nearby is the fascinating White Scar Cave system near Ingleton or you could follow the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail from the village. Railway buffs will be delighted by the proximity to the scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway, which you can hop aboard at Ribblehead Station less than 10 miles away or just enjoy the view of the magnificent Ribblehead Viaduct. In the other direction, the old market town of Kirkby Lonsdale sits above Devils Bridge across the Lune and boasts many independent shops and excellent places to eat.
Note: In the light of the COVID19 pandemic the owners have decided to adopt a cautious approach and schedule a 72 hour gap between bookings until end June 2021 to ensure your stay is as safe as possible and give you peace of mind. It means changeover dates are more flexible than the availability might suggest so if in doubt, please get in touch.
