A bijoux sandstone retreat for two overlooking the Eden Valley and Lake District Fells.
- Sleeps: 2
Escape to a cosy hideaway at Vale Croft
You’ll enjoy all the comfort and attention to detail of Rowley Estate’s ancestral homes scaled into a cottage just for two. It’s secluded from the main farmhouse by a yew hedge and blossoming cherry trees, with a private terrace for you to catch the spectacular sunsets as you sip an aperitif or get the Weber barbecue blazing.
You will long to return to this beautifully renovated stable at Todd Hills Farm with glorious views of the Pennines to the East and the Lakeland dales to the West.
Fellside views and night-time star gazing
After hearty hikes in the surrounding Pennines, curl up in front of the wood- burning stove to warm your toes and catch a favourite film. The open plan kitchen keeps conversation flowing as you rustle up a feast. Or uncork wine from your hamper and sit out on your sandstone terrace, listening for the cooing of turtledoves in the ancient woodland nearby.
At night, luxuriate under Egyptian cotton sheets in the super king-size bed and drift off to the hooting owls. The ensuite Coniston Room has a rainfall shower in its limestone travertine tiled ensuite bedroom.
If you can bear to leave...
The picturesque village of Melmerby, a few minutes by car or a stroll down the country lane, is well worth a visit with pretty independent shops, a stunning tearoom and the welcoming Shepherd’s Inn pub serving hearty local specialities.
There are walks galore from your doorstep. Watch out for tawny owls, hedgehogs and roe deer.

I can’t believe that it is a week since we were in Vale Croft. I would just like to say…
