Monks Bridge is a charming, converted school house, situated on the banks of Lyvennet Beck and next to Monks Bridge from where it takes its name. Originally dating back to the 1700's, the three-bedroomed property has been tastefully converted, providing comfortable, spacious accommodation and is the perfect base from which to explore Cumbria, the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Pennines. The property benefits from a single bedroom/sunroom, which overlooks the beck, and watch the visiting wildlife or sit out in the pretty mature garden and enjoy the sunshine. It is well equipped and benefits from an impressive sitting and dining room with wood burning stove (fuel provided), and the original large arched windows and vaulted ceilings. Crosby Ravensworth is within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and has its own community owned pub, serving good food, which is only a short stroll from Monks Bridge. There are some beautiful walks straight from the door and both the Lake District and Pennines are within easy reach. The perfect base for a walking holiday in a beautiful peaceful setting.
