Hello and we hope that you are all safe and well.

Fingers crossed, we are very much hoping to reopen from Monday 12th April 2021 if all goes according to plan and we get the official go ahead. Please note that should we reopen then as hoped, that until May 17th at the earliest, there will be a one household/ support bubble rule in place. We are also hoping to reopen the pool area and this will be on a rota basis with one cottage/ household swimming at any one time. Regrettably we expect the sauna and laundry areas to remain closed for the time being but we will continue to monitor and follow advice on this issue. If we can help with any queries, bookings or concerns then please do get in touch and we will be happy to discuss these with you.

We are so looking forward to welcoming guests back to the dales and to Stonelands. Thank you to you all for your patience, understanding and kind words over the past year - you have really kept us going!

Best wishes from Mark & Ruth Cowan

Charming holiday cottages in the beautiful surroundings of
Littondale in the Yorkshire Dales.

In 1990, having farmed in Littondale for generations, the Cowan family converted the original stone-built farm buildings which were over 200 years old – this was the beginning of Stonelands Farmyard Cottages which has now been a family run business for 20 years, being owned & run since 2012 by ourselves – Mark & Ruth Cowan.

We are now able to offer gift vouchers by popular demand. Vouchers start from £40. Email us at to arrange, or call us on 01756 770293.
