The Fold is a recent barn conversion in the picturesque village of Crosby Garrett, near Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria. Built on 2 floors it offers spacious accommodation for two. An open lounge with a wood burning stove ensures a warm and cosy environment. There is a bathroom downstairs, and the bedroom with shower room up. As well as the open plan sitting room/dining area and kitchen, there is a study downstairs with a double futon - so plenty of space to spread out. The newly built garden room gives uninterrupted views across the Eden valley to the Pennines - a truly peaceful location.
Spring has come! Yesterday with a temp of 70 degrees I sat outside listening to a bird singing and the lambs baa-ing in the fields, looking across the Eden valley to the Penines bathed in the late afternoon sunshine and revelling in the peace of it all - and the first swallow flew across to make it a perfect evening.

The Fold enjoys a tranquil location located in a cul de sac, with immediate access to many walks in the surrounding area. It is central for visiting the Eden Valley, Yorkshire Dales National Park, Lake District National Park and the North Pennines. Kendal and Penrith are 30 minutes away, so much that the Lake District has to offer is easily available without the ever increasing crowds.

Crosby Garrett is a pretty village in the upper Eden Valley in Cumbria. It is surrounded on all sides by miles of undulating countryside with extensive views across Cumbria. Nearby is the nature reserve of Smardale Gill with its two incredible viaducts, one still in use. There are several lovely walks from the door - down by the Scandal beck, or up over Crosby Garrett fell with views to the Lakeland fells.

Nearby
Settle-Carlisle Railway
The Settle-Carlisle passes close to Crosby Garrett, crossing the village on one of several impressive viaducts. Steam trains are a summer feature. The line is widely reputed to offer the most picturesque rail journey in the country and is well worth a trip in either direction.

Howgills
The nearby Howgills offer superb walking opportunities for those wishing to enjoy the hills without the crowds that can be encountered in the central Lakeland.

Kirkby Stephen
The nearest market town is Kirkby Stephen, about 4 miles away. Kirkby Stephen is well served by a number of pubs, restaurants, cafes, antique shops and grocery stores. Appleby in Westmorland is about 5 miles in the other direction - a lovely, historic market town
with a tree-lined main street with the castle at the top and the church and river Eden at the bottom.

Last week in June 2017.

This place was lovely to come back to after trips out in some really awful weather. The wood burner soon warmed the place up, and the facilities were excellent all round. The cooking gear took a bit of understanding, but worked well once deciphered. (Could have done with a few basic instructions). The sun room was very cosy, even when the sun wasn't shining. Location was peaceful; village itself was quiet, just the odd sheep bleating in the distance. Recommended.

Very clean, well presented, a home from home but with a better vista.

This property was just what we were looking for, a home from home in the North Yorkshire Dales. The property has all you would want from a holiday home and more. The location was ideal for us. Peace and quiet but close enough to civilisation for all those necessities.

I really am struggling to find any negatives for this propert , it was delightful, Crosby Garrett was great.

Fantastic barn conversion, warm, comfortable and extremely well located for the Eden Valley .

The Fold is a brilliant barn conversion with full central heating and an extremely effective wood burning stove. It is clean,well equipped and comfortable with a spacious bathroom and large shower room. Everything you need is here. The special feature is the garden room which commands extensive views across the Eden Valley to the distant Pennines. One can linger here interminably and just savour the vista. The Fold is easily accessed with car parking adjacent and is extremely well located for Kirkby Stephen and Appleby. Swaledale can be reached in just over half an hour and Hawes in Wensleydale is not a lot longer. One can also travel on the now famous Settle to Carlisle railway allowing numerous walking options from one station to another. We were delighted to see red squirrels on three occasions in the area as well as black and red grouse on the nearby Asby Scar. This is a walkers and naturalists paradise. There are several good pubs and other eating places around. We would commend the Nateby Inn at Nateby near Kirkby Stephen and the Brief Encounter Cafe and Tea Room at Langwathby Station. Both are dog friendly as are most such places in the area which gives the area an additional welcoming feel. Beware the so called cafe at Little Salkeld Mill which is outrageously expensive and, unlike most other places in this delightful area, rather unwelcoming

Booking was easy and all the information we needed was supplied in good time and it is dog friendly of course. . We will most certainly return as soon as possible.

It is not often that we have booked accommodation and the property far exceeds the pictures but this is definitely true of The Fold. We found it to be much bigger than we anticipated, very homely, very tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and the views from the sun room and garden are amazing. It felt more like we were staying at a friends house than a rental property. It is definitely a bit off the beaten track but you would not get the views and tranquillity if it were not. A car is a must.

Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful Property

We loved our stay at The Fold. The house is much bigger than we expected and we were so comfortable for our whole stay. It was a perfect location for us to get to the walks we wanted to do and our little dog loved staying here too.
