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...

Nestled at the uppermost point of Long Rigg Estate is Wild Boar Cottage, a cosy yet spacious three-bedroom bungalow with a sunny terrace and; in the spring; bluebell dappled gardens.

From the front paved patio, the front door leads into an entrance hall, where luxury vinyl oak woodgrain flooring extends underfoot. Double oak doors open to reveal a large storage cupboard, perfect for coats, boots and cleaning essentials.

Turning left, open the solid oak veneered door into the open-plan living space, where grey carpet distinguishes the cosy and inviting living area to the front. In the corner, a log burner with exposed flue bestows the room with its warmth and welcome.

French doors open to an Indian stone paved patio, ideal for a hot tub and relaxing evenings sipping champagne beneath the starlit skies.

Plush carpet makes way for oak wood-grained flooring in the kitchen-dining area to the rear of the room, where grey cabinets provide plenty of storage, and integrated appliances include an electric oven and induction hob with extractor fan and sink. There is also space for a washing machine or dishwasher.

Returning to the entrance hall, continue to arrive at the first of three double bedrooms on the left. Looking out toward the blue bells, this spacious double bedroom is carpeted underfoot and features its own ensuite containing walk-in shower, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail. This room also features a cupboard housing the workings for the Air Source Heat Pump.

Next door to the first bedroom, arrive at bedroom two, a light, bright bedroom with windows to two sides, drawing in views over the side and to the front. Refresh in the private ensuite with rainfall shower, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail.

Finally, turning right from the front door, discover a third double bedroom, carpeted and cosy, with deep windows looking out over the driveway to the side and in the direction of the Howgills at the front. A good-sized, fully tiled ensuite with corner shower containing rainfall showerhead provides refreshment, alongside a wash basin, WC and heated towel rail.

With a gravel path running around the home, Wild Boar Cottage offers ample opportunity to enjoy the outdoors without ever leaving sight of the cottage. A sheltered, Indian stone patio to the rear is screened by a stone wall, as the greenery of the slope rises up. Awash with bluebells in the springtime, the large expanse of grassy green extends up to the top corner, where a landmark tree is picture perfect throughout the seasons. Soak up morning sun on this patio. Native hedging provides a clear boundary to the west.

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.
