Description

Monks Bridge is a three bedroomed converted former school house, ideally situated at the edge of the peaceful village of Crosby Ravensworth and within easy walking distance of the local pub.  The property is located next to Lyvennet Beck and Monks Bridge from where the cottage takes its name.  Dating back to the 1700's this spacious property is in an ideal location for those wanting to explore Cumbria, Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales.  There is a delightful garden to relax in, or if the weather is not in your favour why not take a seat in the sun room that overlooks the Beck. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of the red squirrels, ducks and other wildlife that visit the area.  Monks Bridge provides modern amenities yet has retained much of the character of the original building such as the lofty ceilings, arched windows and wooden floors and is an ideal holiday destination for families or groups of friends.

A really well thought out property with a very homely feel. Everything went well with our stay, good walks right from the property and within half an hours drive. Thank you.

Mr Harry Constable,

Excellent stay with old friends and relatives made all the better by the standard of accommodation. Always felt more of a home than a holiday let, very well thought out, everything worked and good mix of old and the new. Great walking in the area and up to 30 minutes drive away on the quieter side if the lakes. Thank you very much to the owners
