About South Byre

Sojourn North offers a choice of three self-catering holiday homes, each unique in style and beautifully presented throughout. East Byre accommodates parties of up to six, West Barn up to seven and South Byre (featured in this advert) four guests, making them perfect for families, couples (one or two) and also large groups of up to ten or even seventeen when all properties are rented together.

Located within a complex of converted farm buildings at Salutation Yard, these impressive self-catering cottages are nicely tucked away in the picturesque tranquil Eden Valley, yet within easy reach of a host of attractions sitting on the edge of the Lake District National Park. Located in the unspoilt Cumbrian village of Skelton, guests have a pub in the village within a two minute stroll, as well as a public tennis court (during the warmer months) and a play area for children. The Upfront Gallery and Puppet Theatre with its vegetarian restaurant is also within walking distance and just a mile away (walking boots or wellies may be required!).

With lovely walks and bike rides amongst beautiful scenery, The Eden Valley is nicely sandwiched between the fells of the Lakes and the Pennines. It's rolling green countryside is dotted with pretty little villages which have managed to remain unspoilt and escape the crowds of busier tourist hot spots. The area is abundant with wildlife including lots of red squirrels, as well as trout and salmon on the River Eden which winds its way through the valley as it travels north to the Solway Firth. For those who enjoy fishing, canoeing or kayaking, the river offers plenty of opportunities.

Lace up your walking boots and explore miles of tracks and trails, visit the 'Long Meg and her daughters' stone circle which is the country's third largest, or sit back and soak up the scenery in a leisurely fashion with a nostalgic trip on the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway.

For those who can tear themselves away from the tranquility of the Eden Valley, Ullswater (just over ten miles) and the bustling market town of Keswick (sixteen miles) are just two of the Lake District's many attractions within easy driving distance, as is Carlisle's historic city centre and the North Pennines - another tranquil walker's paradise
