The drive from the main road is stunning: narrow, twisty and with wide sensational views at every turn; you are in the quietest valley but still at 1,200 feet.

The cottage, like any well-loved family home, is crammed with original art, photographs, books, games, open fires and much else to excite young and old.

Crookwath Cottage: Kitchen and Sitting Room


The kitchen is big, beamed and Aga-simmered, with wooden cupboards and plenty of all you need; a squishy sofa at one end next to an overflowing bookcase ensures whoever cooks will have company.

The original range is now an open fire in the long sitting room with contemporary sofa and dark red walls.

"Fat Rascals will forever have a place in my heart - and possibly my arteries as well. We enjoyed our time here immensely." Stef & Tibbles, London

"I like sleeping in my bed bad listening to the wind! And the rush of the beck outside the window, and I like cuddling the owl and  going to Lucy's Wood. Thank you, love Cecily." ( aged 7 )
