About The Stoney Calf

The Stoney Calf feels as if it was made just for you. The charming, one-bedroom cottage is a wonderful rural retreat for couples or individual travellers, with incredible views and walks from the door. The bijou proportions don't mean the owners have skimped on style - there is a bespoke oak kitchen with high-quality fixtures and finishes throughout.

The holiday cottage is on Hawkrigg Lune Valley Farm in South Cumbria, right on the western border of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and within easy reach of the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Sitting in the picturesque Lune Valley, the location is a paradise for anyone who loves being outdoors, surrounded by nature and incredible views. The River Lune is a favourite with anglers (licenses required) who fly-fish for salmon, sea trout and brown trout, and guests can also go horse riding or play golf. All of this is in addition to the extensive network of footpaths and cycling routes which make this area such a favourite with walkers, ramblers, hikers, road cyclists and mountain bikers.

At less than three miles away, Kirkby Lonsdale is the nearest town and an excellent place to shop for food and drink for your self-catering holiday. The historic market town has a wide selection of independent boutique where you can shop, and places to sit down for a drink and a meal if you don't feel like cooking at the cottage. An excellent butcher sells locally reared meat, and a weekly market held every Thursday where local producers sell their wares.

Keep your camera handy as you're walking around town as there are lots of picturesque details you will want to capture. These include St Mary's, a Norman church which dates from the 1200s. The churchyard overlooks the Lune River - a scene painted by John Ruskin. Ruskin loved Kirkby Lonsdale, and a local footpath leads to a beauty spot known as "Ruskin's View" in homage to one of the artist's most beloved paintings. Other nearby attractions include Ingleton Waterfalls which is just six miles away.

There's nothing to do but relax when you stay at The Stoney Calf. You'll happily capitulate to the lure of this idyllic spot. However long your stay - and the cottage is available for short breaks and longer lets - you're sure to leave feeling refreshed and revitalised.
