Welcome to your home away from home nestled in the Yorkshire Dales, offering a traditional place to stay for up to four guests and one dog. The cosy rurally located cottage offers enviable views of the rolling countryside that surrounds it. Set away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to reach many of the nearby amenities and attractions, alongside endless walking trails to be enjoyed by the whole group, canine included!

The character cottage is made up of an open plan kitchen, diner equipped with everything you’ll need to enjoy home cooked meals. The snug lounge area comes complete with a wood burner, perfect for cosying up with your pup on colder evenings. When the day is done, retreat to the two spacious bedrooms for a restful night’s sleep. The property offers one spacious bathroom. Outside, guests are able to make the most of the shared patio area, enclosed garden and summer house, perfect for warmer days with your dog.

The popular market town Kirkby Stephen that offers excellent shopping facilities and eateries is located 7.5 miles from the property. With both the southern boundary of the North Pennies and the northern side of the Yorkshire Dales National Park surrounding this location, you can take your pick for a spot of walking, biking, riding or even paragliding. Please note, transport is essential to get up and down the track to the property because of the cows in the fields surrounding the property throughout July and August.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A nicely laid out cottage for small numbers. It worked well for 3 but 4 would be tricky and, although it's great to see attention being paid to accessibility, it would have been hard to have a wheelchair user in residence as the space was too tight for this (we didn't have a wheelchair user with us on this occasion, but I have travelled a good dealRead more with a wheelchair user and note that it would not have been easy, despite the excellent bathroom and ramps).

Curlew Retreat is just that, a retreat away from noise, busyness and civilisation! It is set in rural surroundings, but there are plenty of things to do locally if you're prepared to drive and get out and about. We found it very peaceful and relaxing with everything we needed for a great stay. Our nine year old daughter loved the swing and the summRead moreer house in the garden! Thoroughly recommend it for a lovely time away. Hide

All on one floor, with ramp access as well as stairs which was great for our elderly dog. Great location, easy access to North Pennines AONB, Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. Lovely couple running the cottage, really felt at home here.

We spent a week in this lovely cottage, situated in an ideal location to visit both the Dales and the Lakes. Our hosts were so welcoming. Our children thoroughly enjoyed using the swing in the garden!
