THE VILLAGE

holiday cottages

Crosby Garrett is a small fellside village set in the Upper Eden Valley, surrounded by beautiful and unspoilt countryside. It is in a conservation area, due to the famous Settle to Carlisle line crossing a handsome viaduct at the end of the village before the road disappears onto the fell.

Essentially a farming village, it is set in a valley and its charm lies in the fact that it is hidden from the rest of the world. Mossgill Chapel is one of several listed buildings in the village, and the parish church of St. Andrew’s, set high on a hill is over a thousand years old, dating back to Saxon times. There is also a Methodist Chapel in the village and we still have a tiny post office and village shop. Red squirrels are a regular sight in the village.

Crosby Garrett is set in wonderful walking and cycling country, being only two miles from the Coast to Coast walk and near the Pennine Way. The Lake District is 45minutes away and the Yorkshire Dales National Park 8 miles away. The Cumbrian Cycleway is just within one mile of the village and Smardale Nature Reserve just a mile away is home home to red squirrels, deer, and a wide variety of flora and fauna.
