Why we love it

The Lakes District, the Dales and Howgill Fells to explore, an area full of dog-friendly pubs and a grand house for your dog to pad around in like it owns the place

What you'll love

Dogs will love

  • Walks that start right from the front door
  • Splashing into the many rivers and streams
  • Finding a cosy spot in the local pubs

Humans will love

  • Stargazing from the terrace under incredibly clear night skies
  • The option of meals delivered from the owners' top-notch catering service
  • Cycling down the winding lanes or taking on some challenging climbs

The place

Strolling through the open-plan kitchen and dining room and crunching out onto the gravel terrace at Brownber Hall makes you feel like landed gentry, but there’s an earthy homeliness to the Victorian country house. It’s perfect for a big reunion, with lively meals indoors or out as you plan or review the day’s adventures, but space for everyone to drift off to the big bedrooms for some quiet time when they need it. There are plenty of warm spots for dogs and humans to nap and simply endless possibilities for tiring yourself out, with walks and cycles in the Lakes, Dales and local fells that run from scenic routes across viaducts to testing, twisting climbs ending in stunning viewpoints or welcoming dog-friendly pubs.

In the neighbourhood

  • The Lake District is just to the west of you, but local walks like the route round Ravenstonedale and Smardale that takes you over the viaduct are well worth exploring
  • Also in Ravenstonedale, The Black Swan and King’s Head pubs are both dog-friendly and (unsurprisingly) well stocked with local beers and great food
  • Two classic long distance footpaths – the Coast to Coast and the Dales High Way - run right past Brownber House. There are bag carrying companies who can ship your stuff to your destination if you’re going point to point
  • The area is one of the darkest sky areas in England, which means great opportunities for stargazing – particularly up on the fell behind the Hall
  • Cyclists can explore fantastic routes and challenging climbs such as Tan Hill or the Lakes & Dales Loop. There's safe storage for bikes in the basement
  • There are plenty of opportunities for wild swimming in the various lakes and rivers, so make sure you keep your gear handy, unless you think you can get away with a skinny dip!
