From the instant you leave the motorway, sense the separation from the hustle and bustle as the valley stretches out ahead. The holiday begins before you set foot through the gates of Long Rigg, passing through the pretty Yorkshire Dales town of Sedbergh - known affectionately as England's Book Town on account of its diverse selection of book shops - before turning off along traditional country lanes to arrive at the most spectacularly set of homes, directly facing the undulating backbone of Winder and its fellow Howgills.

Long Rigg Centre's reputation for restoration and recuperation is ingrained within its history. Believed to have been built in the 19th century as an isolation hospital, Long Rigg was latterly used as a residential centre from the 1980s, providing outdoor opportunities to young people throughout the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Its unique setting and views are an essential part of its charisma.

Pull through the gated entrance and up the sweeping driveway, carpeted in daffodils in springtime. At the bottom of this substantial 1.2-acre plot, extra parking and for the three homes is provided. A mixed native hedge to the boundary adds a thicket of further separation from the quiet lane.

Lovingly restored, reinsulated and reimagined as luxurious holiday homes, the three buildings of the Long Rigg Estate are independent homes, each offering their own private parking spaces, gardens, quirks and perks for holidaymakers. Step inside to learn more...

With its stunning views over meadowland and the Howgills, Herdwick Barn offers bijou bliss in total comfort and style.

Reroofed and extended, enter directly into the heart of the home, the open-plan kitchen-dining-living room.

Luxury oak vinyl flooring flows throughout the kitchen-dining-living room, naturally zoned to provide the practical cooking hub to the right of the front door, where a range of grey fitted ;cabinets and drawers offer ample storage above and beneath the compact, low profile, easy-clean waterproof laminate Zenith Worktops. All the essential appliances - including oven, induction hob, dishwasher and sink, ensure guests are well catered for during their stay.

Awash with light from windows to both sides, French doors open to the rear patio. Private and peaceful, views of both the Howgills and fields provide the perfect backdrop.

The oldest of all the buildings at Long Rigg, totally refurbished from top to bottom there is a fresh, contemporary feel to Herdwick Barn. From casual dining at the breakfast bar to barbecues on the patio looking out over the valley and fells of the Yorkshire Dales, the soothing sense of rural living is prevalent indoors and out.

Beyond the kitchen-dining area, flow out to the living area, where plush carpet extends underfoot and a log-burning stove sits upon its stone hearth, emanating warmth and welcome throughout the room.

Make your way through to the rear of the home, where directly ahead, the first of two enveloping double bedrooms awaits. Plush carpet lies underfoot, with deep cottage-style windows drawing in daylight. Refreshment awaits in the ensuite, where oak LVT flooring extends underfoot and the walk-in shower with drench head and handheld attachment is lined in marbled tiles. The ensuite is also furnished with wash basin, heated towel rail and WC.

Next door, a second spacious bedroom also contains windows with deep windowsills, and an ensuite bathroom with shower, wash basin, heated towel rail and WC, light and bright, courtesy of a large opaque window.

Outside Herdwick Barn, private parking is available for four six cars, whilst the substantial stone paved patio looks over a lawned area and beyond to meadow, with the rise and fall of the Howgills present to the right.

As part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park dark sky initiative, all the homes at Long Rigg feature qualifying low-level lighting, helping would-be astronomers, cosmologists and amateur photographers to take advantage of the lack of light pollution on the estate, allowing clear views to the stars.

Come rain or shine, summer sun or crisp and clear winter skies, the Long Rigg estate would be the perfect base for stargazing communities and clubs; simply register the estate as YDNP - Dark Sky Resort.
