The Carthouse is one of three luxurious cottages sitting within a large converted Victorian barn at The Green Cumbria. Set in an idyllic location in Cumbria’s Eden Valley just outside the picturesque village of Ravenstonedale.

The interior styling is outstanding, stylish and authentic; based on earthy natural colours that mirror the external surroundings.

The Carthouse sleeps six and is laid out over three levels with kitchen/diner and living area with woodburner on the ground floor, two bedrooms on the first floor and a third bedroom on the second floor. There are 2 bathrooms including a ground floor wet room. Doors from the living area and kitchen open onto a private enclosed and relaxing outside garden with furniture. Guests also have access to a beautiful beck side area where there is a BBQ, seating and tables.

The Carthouse is a truly welcoming space to unwind. For entertainment you’ll find a 50” Smart TV, WiFi, Amazon Alexa with Spotify subscription included, games, maps and books. The fully equipped kitchen comes with lots of added extras.

Other features and facilities include a fantastic App with lots of pre-arrival information, underfloor heating, bike storage, bath robes, stargazing kits and utility area.

Dogs are very welcome and are provided welcome treats, basket, bucket, sponge, shampoo, towel, outside tap and dog waste bin.

The village of Ravenstonedale is just one mile away with its two excellent pubs, children’s play area and tennis court. The market town of Kirkby Stephen is a short drive away where you will find pubs, supermarket and lots of interesting shops. The cottage is perfectly positioned to explore the highlights of the Eden Valley, Lake District and Yorkshire Dales and there is also plenty for children nearby such as Lowther Castle, outdoor swimming pools, Brockhole on Windermere and the Rheged Centre

The Carthouse is Five Star rated by Visit England and The Green Cumbria was runner up in the 2023 Cumbria Tourism Awards in the category of Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable Business.

Week long breaks (seven nights) start on Fridays.

3 or 4 night short breaks are available outside of peak season. Please enquire

The property has been designed with facilities for guests with limited mobility including assisted wheelchair users. A ramp provides access to the front door and when inside the WC/wet room can be found on the ground floor. Although the bedrooms are all accessed by stairs, the owners are able, on request, to put a full size single day bed in the lounge meaning guests have access to the kitchen, lounge, bathroom and sleeping accommodation all on the ground floor level.
