Family loved it; great food in local pub and the red squirrels are good to see. Wifi, internet & phone signals very poor; gives a chance for the family to talk :)

Thank you for your review. We are glad you and the family loved your break here at The Green. We are working on options for broadband upgrades in the future and I hope the slow speed of the wifi in the Carthouse didn't spoil your stay. Hope to see you again soon.

Lovely, luxurious accommodation with everything you could want in a beautiful setting.

The Carthouse is part of a huge old barn that has been completely gutted and refurbished to a very high standard while still maintaining a charming echo of its old rustic existence. Bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms are furnished and decorated beautifully with everything you could possibly need to hand as well as countless thoughful additions and finishing touches.

The setting, in the Howgill fells of Cumbria, is to my mind the most beautiful spot in the country. There are expansive hills and valleys for the kind of walking that reminds you what is is to be alive; countless becks (small rivers) and picnic spots where children can play endlessly paddling, making dams, fishing for tiddlers or if you're small, just throwing stones into the water.

The local village, Ravenstonedale is a great place with two good pubs, a lovely old church and plenty of friendly locals.

I came to the Green with my extended family so we took all three of the properties (the Carthouse, Haystore and Byre) and had a magical time throughout our stay. For this reason I have duplicated this review for all three places but I know I speak for all 13 of us when I say that despite being seasoned travellers, (with more than a couple of centuries experience between us), we have never stayed anywhere better.




Excellent location

The family , including 3 adult 'children' enjoyed a wonderful stay. Perfect location, perfect accommodation! Excellent information provided beforehand, owners on hand if needed. Mesmerised from early morning by the local wildlife, red squirrels, pheasants, sheep right outside our windows! So much to see and do we will definitely be making a return trip.

The property was nice and clean. We were lucky with the weather and there are plenty of places to sit outside. We particularly liked the seats high up in the garden with a bit of a view. Everything worked and was clean. The wi-fi was a bit sketchy but maybe no bad thing. Be aware that the property is about a mile from the village pubs and also another pub across fields (for a shortcut). This didn't cause us a problem. The road is a very quiet single track road.
If you like the outdoors then it's not a bad location. We went walking, cycling, swimming and running on the roads and the hills. There are only two bathrooms but six of us stayed and it didn't cause a problem at all.




Great location and accomodation
