Just a few minutes away from Crake Trees Manor our self catering cottage is in the neighbouring village of Maulds Meaburn. We recently converted the village Brew House into a unique and very quirky self-catering cottage.
A perfect romantic retreat for 2 people plus 1 dog or a baby. Right at the centre of the village, the conservatory and bedroom look right out over the village green. It also has a sunny enclosed courtyard, wood stove, lovely handmade furnishings, WiFi of course and only a 15 minute walk through the fields to the pub.
The Brew House now has its own Wood fired Hot Tub. Perfect for sunny evenings and star watching on dark nights.
Sheep graze in summer, children play in the lovely river Lyvennet that flows through the valley, a tranquil place within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This valley is known as The Westmorland Dales.
Our Shepherds Hut is right in the heart of the Westmorland Dales in The Yorkshire Dales National Park. The hut has views right to The Pennines and Howgill Fells. Totally ‘Off-Grid’ to really enjoy the ‘Dark Skies ‘ experience.
The perfect escape for 2 people. The Shepherds Hut at Crake Trees Manor is lit by candles and lanterns. A Wood Stoves ready to light. An Oak bed with mattress. Bring all your own bedding and towels. Oak floor and pale lime washed walls give the hut a very Scandinavian feel. Proper “Hygge”.

Glampers have their own private Shower and Toilet. Walk down the fields for a take away from the village community Pub, and remember to order farmer Mikes Breakfast Baps for a great start to the next day.

Today, even though I only found out this morning, is BOOK DIRECT day. I know your calendars are bursting with a day for this and a day for that, but having a special day does highlight a cause or an issue and make us think about the days title a little bit more. BOOK DIRECT…
Its the time of year again. No sooner have the decorations come down, the Toffee Shop fudge been devoured and I seem to have a tidy kitchen for a short while ……when I notice that Seville Oranges have arrived at Booths. Oh dear, now my favourite job (NOT) looms. Making Marmalade has been an annual…
Covid-19 Update –the end of May 2020
I have rarely seen the countryside around Crake Trees Manor look so beautiful.
A late spring, lots of warm sunshine and a thankful drop of rain has given us a riot of colour and fresh growth
The hedges a blaze of vivid frothy white blossom, with so many wild flowers, I cannot even name them all!
Our fields are full of courting pheasants, mother hares, ground nesting birds and low flying owls around dusk.
So long as people walking the footpaths keep their dogs on a lead and wear gloves, we welcome them to enjoy our space and fresh air.
But no-one can stay overnight, no camping, glamping or self catering as yet.
Re-opening dates cannot be guaranteed so we await further direction .
