Peaceful but not isolated, rural location. Weekly bookings only
Why Owner chose Crosby Garrett
The Fold offers peace and quiet to relax and unwind. The view across to the Pennines is spectacular, with ever-changing displays of colour ad light. The night skies are also a delight - with the nightly hooting of a local owl. I can't promise you'll see red squirrels, but they are about. The interior is light and spacious, with plenty of room for lazing around, and a good collection of books for browsing. The newly added conservatory, or sun-porch is great for doing nothing very much, or for planning next day's activities. The Fold is my own winter home and perhaps has a more personal touch than some holiday lets. The garden is still in its infancy, so please forgive any weeds that may appear.

Lovely cottage with beautiful views.
Agree with all the reviews (except the last one!). True there's no sofa but plenty of comfortable seating. Slightly quirky and everything you need. Cosy with an excellent log burner. Two bathrooms, a powerful shower and comfy bed. More spacious than the pictures suggest. Excellent value. Dogs loved the walks and the garden is enclosed. Very quiet village, the cottage is situated on the edge with excellent views. Definitely like to return!
Why was there no sofas in the living room instead 4 very old uncomfortable badly damaged armchairs that should be used as firewood. The patio doors from living room to outside let in so much rain it flooded the floor. The kitchen table and 3 chairs again held together with glue and nails and wobbled so much we were afraid to eat at it. Where the boiler connects to the wall rain water was coming in very dangerous. The oven trays hadn't been cleaned at all and had to be scrubbed before use. The only chairs we could sit in were 2 garden chairs in the small conservatory. Although the area was lovely the unfortunate issues with the cottage have put us off using this place again.
very well appointed, equipped and comfortable. it was easy to relax there.
the cottage was delightful, well equipped, very comfortable and beautiful scenery. Plenty of walks of various levels and opportunities to photograph steam trains, my husband's hobby.
the villagers were friendly.
lots of activities near by, we went fly fishing, trains spotting and riding and potter watching
Downside for our week was the weather but that's 'nature' for you.
I would recommend this for anyone who wants a quiet retreat, or good walks.
A well thought out & reasonably priced barn conversion.Great view from the sunroom.Pet friendly as well.
N.B. after leaving Soulby heading towards Crosby Garrett,the signpost for the left turn for C.Garrett is missing.I would advise you to use a well known search engine's Streetview to familiarise yourself with the turning!
Wonderful quiet home-from-home in east Cumbria
Provided as a venue for two people, the accommodation is first class in a lovely part of the country.
Sitting on the patio the northern Pennines are in the distance, and just over the garden's dry-stone wall the sheep appear to have a conversation with others in the adjacent fields and across on the nearby hills. As a widower I was on my own but the cottage (it seems more like one being the end of a former barn) which is delightfully furnished would be very comfortable for two. It was so lovely, and in the record-breaking summer of 2018 not too hot! Walks onto the hills can be taken direct from the front door, with shops and the usual facilities in nearby Kirkby Stephen.
A lovely cottage with great views,
Peaceful and relaxing holiday. Good location for the Dales and the Lakes.
The market towns of Appleby and Kirkby Stephen provide all facilities. Good walks from the door, including the famed nature reserve of Smardale Gill and viaduct. Wild Boar Fell and the high moorland around all have open access and the coast-to-coast footpath crosses the fell above Crosby Garrett. At the top of the village the Settle/Carlisle railway crosses on an impressive viaduct, with a station at Kirkby Stephen. The main A 66 crosses the Penines to give fast access to Teesdale, Co. Durham and North Yorkshire - and Scotland is just up the M.6. Or you could just sit in the garden and watch the clouds floating over the Penines!
