Monks Bridge is a charming three bedroomed converted former school house, ideally situated at the edge of the peaceful village of Crosby Ravensworth and within easy walking distance of the local pub.

Very comfortable cottage with a home-from-home feel. Very well-equipped in general and high quality bedrooms & bathrooms. Excellent location - rural and tranquil, with a pub within walking distance serving superb food. Beautiful walks on doorstep and good location for venturing further afield driving through gorgeous countryside.
Lovely property in a quiet village. Simple living and great location for exploring the Lakes, Dales or Pennines.
Monks Bridge is one of the best places we've ever stayed. The house is beautiful and very comfortable with everything you need. The location is excellent and it also has a gorgeous garden.
Property and area outstanding. Had a brilliant time, all so very comfortable. Didn't want to come home :-(
Wow this holiday cottage was fabulous , the quality of the bedding and towels was first class, bed was very comfy, bathrooms were immaculate with lots and lots of hot water. The locals in the village were very welcoming and friendly, with lots of walks straight from the doorstep. What more can I say but perfect.
We loved Monks Bridge. It is a delightful house and we were all so very impressed about how spotlessly clean it was, and the linen and towels a delight. We would love to visit again.
Julia it’s been heavenly. We did a wonderful walk my son found online - the Lowther loop. Lowther Castle and across to Helton and up onto Askham Fell and back down through Askham. Blissfully varied, great views and I much recommend it. Monday had mixed forecasts so we stayed closer to home. We stopped for cupcakes at Midtown Farm - brilliant birthday cake by the way. Thanks so much for arranging that. Today we went back to Ullswater as it was a stunning day. Parked at Martindale and walked the Ullswater way to Patterdale and then up and over Breda Head and back down the valley to Martindale. My older son - who was in New Zealand in Jan and Feb - said why bother to travel so far when it’s every bit as beautiful here! We will leave with very heavy hearts but so fulfilled after a stunning trip down memory lane!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage . spotlessly clean which made us feel very safe . Monks bridge is a very cosy and comfortable the surrounding countryside is stunning we will certainly be returning at a later date . Thank you
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home. The whole family has enjoyed every relaxing minute of it. We have felt so safe here especially in these troubled times of COVID. We cant wait to plan our next trip back here. Really out of this world wonderful. Thank you
A Wonderful break in a beautiful house. What could be better in such a year of change than to spend a week surrounded by beautiful countryside and the sound of the nearby river and the crackle of a log fire. thanks as always for providing such a great place to stay.
We had an excellent stay at Monks Bridge. Crosby Ravensworth was an ideal base to explore the surrounding area and we managed to walk and cycle as well as visiting Pooley Bridge, Penrith and the White Scar Caves. The accommodation at Monks Bridge is first class and the amenities provided much appreciated. A special thanks for the welcome pack and tasty berry jam. Many thanks,
We had such a fabulous week staying at Monks Bridge. This is one of the best properties we have stayed in. Absolutely brimming with character and lovely and spacious for our family of 4. It was sparkling clean on arrival - clearly the housekeeper has the highest standards which gave us peace of mind in the current situation. The milk, cakes and homemade jam were a really lovely welcome treat. The situation of the house next to the river and that view when having an evening drink was so beautiful ! Great for wildlife spotting too. Our kids (12 and 9) were able to have a paddle in the river which they absolutely loved. We didn’t have wall to wall sunshine but we made the very best of the good weather we did have a drive miles around, over to the lakes, Windermere, up to Carlisle and Hadrians wall down to Middleton on Tees, and Sedburgh. Also took in Kirby Stephen and Appleby. A wonderful house in picturesque surroundings. We hope to come back one day! Kindest regards
I just wanted to say a big thank you for our stay at Monks Bridge, we had a lovely stay and were very comfortable in the cottage. The village is lovely and good. We were also very lucky with the weather and had some lovely walks.
We had a really lovely New years Break. the house is so cosy and well equipped . the Butchers Arms is great for food and very welcoming , lovely walks from the house. will be back
