The Black Swan is located in the picturesque village of Ravenstonedale in The Eden Valley, Cumbria and The Yorkshire Dales National Park. Yes, it is odd and also fantastic that we are in both Cumbria and The Yorkshire dales. We are perfectly located to explore both of these gorgeous areas of the country as well as The Pennines, County Durham and Lancashire which are all within a 20 minute drive of the hotel. The Howgill fells themselves, where you find us, are beautiful in their own right and allow for bracing northern fell walks to quaint towns nestled in the hills without the hustle and bustle of The Lakes themselves. If the lakes are what you seek however, it’s a quick 20 minute tootle to Kendal – the gateway to the lakes and only 35 to Windermere and Bowness.
If you’re passing through, we are on the link road between West and East (to the A66) and 10 minutes off the M6, not far from the Scottish Border (40 minutes). The perfect place to break a long journey north or south. Please note we are not actually in the middle of nowhere as some “townies” would have you believe….. It’s very easy to find us.
