The Stables description

Holiday home
The Stables at Larklands is a first-class 16th century stone-built barn conversion located on a working cattle farm one mile from the pretty village of Ravensworth and can sleep five people in one twin bedroom and one family room with en-suite. There is also a family bathroom. The rest of the property contains a kitchen with dining area and sitting room. To the outside of the property there is off road parking for 3 cars and a small courtyard area with furniture. Barnard Castle and Richmond are nearby, making The Stables at Larklands an outstanding cottage for families or friends looking to explore this fantastic area.

The pretty little village of Ravensworth lies just to the north of Richmond in a minor tributary of the River Swale. Made up of weathered sandstone cottages with their unusual 'Yorkshire' roofs - a mix of soft red pantiles and slate - the village is centred around a wide, picturesque village green. At one end of the green the popular Bay Horse Inn serves good food and drink. Pretty footpaths run from Ravensworth through the surrounding villages allowing visitors to enjoy many circular walks. Close by are the popular Swaledale market town of Richmond and the Teesdale market town of Barnard Castle both of which offer a wide range of amenities and shops.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

After 20 years of renting cottages, This is truly the most wonderful cottage we've ever stayed in. There is nothing Angela & Jack have not thought of to ensure a wonderful holiday, this cottage is a real luxury home from home. Set on a working farm it provides the space and freedom that city life cannot provide, but should you need to keep your tech in order then superfast wifi and a smart TVs are at hand. Angela & Jack are truly wonderful hosts making you feel like friends not guests, and a local pub within easy walking distance is the icing on the cake.

We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this one is most definitely one of the best. The owners made us feel very welcome. We will be coming back here soon as the journey from North Wales is only 2 hours 30mins which is perfect for a long weekend or even a week break!

The Stables had large rooms, spacious and airy with high ceilings but also warm and cosy the under floor heating is so efficient. The finish is to a high standard and decor had a lot of thought put into it, comfort and luxury. We had everything we could have wanted and more, we were able to chill out with no interruptions

A beautiful place to stay. Arrived after a long journey to find a welcome pack of essentials and everything spotless and all you would need for a home from home holiday. It was warm and cosy and beautifully decorated . The owners Jack and Angela had thought of everything and my grandson talked about Lilly the goat all the way home. Perfect base to visit a lovely part of the country.

Ange and Jack gave us a lovely warm welcome and a basket of goodies to start the week off in comfort - all the essentials - Wine, local beer, biscuits (milk and tea and more). The whole cottage was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay and things we didn't realize we needed (like a first aid drawer, washing machine and liquid tabs, plenty of basic ingredients and dishwasher tablets as well which is always handy!). The farm was such a great setting for our toddler- feeding Lilly the Kid and the lambs with farmer Jack was the highlight of his week! The ducks, hens and cockerels roam freely which is great fun for the kids too. The beds, sofas and all the soft furnishings made the cottage so lovely and comfy - it was such a treat! The telephone signal, very good WiFi for somewhere so remote and the free-view TV all made the stay easy with young children. The location is great - super close to the A66 for easy access in and out and only a few miles from Richmond which is well equipped with petrol station, supermarket and plenty of shops and amenities. There is a local pub in the village which was a proper local - kid friendly and they even do take away food! We had such a lovely time we will be going back!
