Lower Croasdale Farmhouse
Detached Farmhouse for 8

"Our excitement and delight on arriving at beautiful Lower Croasdale has matured into deep content as our wonderful week has progressed. The house is supremely comfortable and thoughtfully equipped, which has made returning after sunny autumn days on the Dales a real pleasure."

Just quarter of a mile down the track from Higher Croasdale Farmhouse, this traditional stone built, detached farmhouse is set on a working farm in a beautiful secluded location. Offering panoramic countryside views, this charming retreat is full of character, with old beams, a fabulous stone floor and staircase, a lovely woodburning stove in a magnificent feature fireplace and a delightful patio area overlooking a wooded dale and babbling brook.

Enjoy walks across the moors or take on the famous Three Peaks challenge. With Settle, Ingleton and Kirkby Lonsdale within easy reach, and the surrounding Dales and Lake District within touring distance, this is an ideal base for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

Ground floor: entrance hall with stone staircase, spacious south-facing living room with woodburning stove, farmhouse dining kitchen, utility room, cloakroom with shower, basin and toilet, small sitting room with TV.
