Holiday Rental House
St Marks is an inspired way to stay, connect and be part of our home away from home. Enjoy our character filled house in the stunning landscape of Cumbria & the Yorkshire Dales, where you can self-cater for yourself, or have Damian and Joanne organise everything for you as the live in hosts. You have full access to the house with two lounges, garden, studio space for games, fully equipped kitchen and dining room. All twin rooms are ensuite with the option to have double bed. The studio is available to hire for creative or business retreats also. All set in the stunning settings of the Howgill Fells, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and within driving distance of the World Heritage Lake District National Park. NB Rates shown are for the whole house for a week or for a minimum of two nights...St Marks is an inspired way to stay, connect and be part of our home away from home.

This is a truly beautiful house that has been renovated to a very high standard. The unusual set up is that Jo and Damian (and their lovely dog, Quito) live at the top of the house and are around during your stay. I didn't quite...More

Love the title of "sitting in the midst of a superb natural environment' as we feel very lucky to live here and exactly why we want to share it. Thanks so much for the lovely review x

Interaction with guests
We want you to feel a part of an inclusive community, with the addition of secluded spaces to take time out on your own. Technology has taken us away from connecting as humans sometimes and we want to host a house that everybody gets involved in, creating an inspired atmosphere that leaves you with real memories. There is nothing better for the soul than being part of a group of like minded people and going back to the good old days of chatting and simply having fun together. Arrive as strangers and leave as friends. We will be on hand throughout your stay, and are able to advice on local activities, shops, catering and so much more. Just ask us if there is anything you want organising, and we will be on hand to make your stay bespoke.
