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.

Wonderful to have come back. Thank you Susanna and Stewart for your warm hospitality. I am looking forward to achieving a good hill walk before I pop off!! In other words, I'll be back.Julia - 21st April 2017
It's been so good to be back! Though it did feel a little strange to be here as guests rather than owners, it's wonderful to see that it is taking on a new lease of life! Thank you for taking such good care of Monks Bridge.Susanna & Stewart - 21st April 2017
Great Easter weekend spent celebrating our Grandad's 93rd birthday and our 32nd birthday. Garden was perfect for a visit from the Easter bunny!Mr & Ms Thwaites - 17th April 2017
Had a brilliant break in your beautiful cottage. Brought back fond memories of when my father and I came to the stone works in the late 60s to face our own stone for our new fireplace. Happy days.Suzanne & Robin Thwaites - 17th April 2017
I loved being back here. I enjoyed going out onto the moors and seeing the frolicking lambs. I also loved swinging across the river holding a rope! It's also lovely sitting in the room next to the river and reading. Loved being back at such a welcoming and beautiful cottage.Sanderson Family - 15th April 2017
One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in, very well equipped and in beautiful surroundings. Would love to think we could return.Rita & Tony - 6th April 2017
