Welcome Information

Warm Greetings from Rachel, Nick & Dylan

Welcome to the Old Croft House. We hope that you enjoy your stay and feel refreshed to head out and enjoy all that the Eden Valley and surrounding areas have to offer.

We moved from Warwickshire to the Old Croft House and Kirkby Stephen in Summer 2011 to follow our dream of owning a bed and breakfast in a location that would allow us to enjoy the outdoors. We have decorated and renovated throughout and hope that you feel as at home in the Old Croft House as much as we do.

As keen walkers, occasional cyclists and reluctant runners we feel lucky to have found ourselves in such a perfect area with stunning countryside to explore without the crowds of some more well known areas.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park was extended in 2016 and now covers the Westmorland Dales surrounding Kirkby Stephen, giving deserved recognition of the beauty of our favourite local areas such as Mallerstang, Wild Boar Fell, The Howgill Fells and Smardale Gill Nature Reserve.

We have explored the area by foot, by bike and by car so we can help with ideas for a day out to suit all. There is a selection of guides in the lounge and suggested itineraries at the back of this pack.

If there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable please don’t hesitate to ask.
