    “The owner was very welcoming and very helpful to us.”

    The cottage was just what we wanted and was most comfortable. The only negative was the shower was hard to get hot water from.

The property

This delightful, deceptively spacious mid-terrace holiday home is set on Main Street in Brough, four miles from Kirkby Stephen between the North Pennines AONB and Yorkshire Dales National Park.

With two such beautiful expanses of the Yorkshire landscape in such easy reach, it is perfect for keen walkers and cyclists, or groups of friends and family wishing to explore this scenic area.

Inside, on the ground floor, is a cosy sitting room with exposed beams and a woodburning stove set below a rustic wooden mantle.

After a long walk and a good, hearty meal made with local produce, it makes the perfect place to retire to and watch some TV before bed.

The kitchen has a dining table and a door leading out to an enclosed, walled garden offering lots of privacy as you sit outside and enjoy the sunshine with a BBQ, or a tasty coffee from the machine provided.

A great way to kick-start your day!

Upstairs are two bedrooms; one with full size triple bunks and a large, double room with lots of storage space for clothes and empty suitcases, plus a beautiful working organ!

Set in the heart of Brough, you are only a short walk from the village shop and its many charming places to eat, including a great local pub!

With so many wonderful walking trails spanning the surrounding area, as well as interesting places to visit, you can easily pull on your walking boots and lose track of the day as you explore!

Visit the ruins of Brough Castle or spend the day in Barnard Castle.

As well as being on the edge of the Dales and North Pennines, the glorious beauty of the Lake District is less than an hour’s drive away!

The village of Brough is such a central location, making Bill’s Rest at The Cottage an excellent holiday home choice for all!

About the location


Kirkby Stephen 4 miles; Appleby-in-Westmorland 8 miles.

Brough is a small town located in the Eden Valley, at the foot of the North Pennines, just four miles north of Kirkby Stephen and eight miles east of Appleby-in-Westmorland. It is a twin village, the southern part, Church Brough, lies on a former Roman road and was the setting for the Norman Brough Castle (once the site of a Roman camp), while the northern area, Market Brough, is sited on a medieval road. The difference in the two villages relates to the functions they once served; Church Brough’s houses stand around a market square decorated with a maypole, while Market Brough boasts a wide and long main street. The village’s claim to fame lies in its 18th-19th century importance as a coaching town for the England-Scotland run, where more than 10 inns catered to the stagecoach trade. A beautiful sleepy backwater, it is surrounded by traditional farm meadows and picturesque pastures and fells. Nearby, the traditional market town of Kirkby Stephen, once home to cotton mills and a large manufacturer of shoes and woollen hats, today hosts a variety of shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs for every taste and budget. Enjoy many excellent walks and cycle routes nearby; explore Penrith, Appleby and the magnificent Howgill Fells, enjoy a drink in Tan Hill, England's highest pub, or take a ride on the Settle-Carlisle railway. A superb location, with the whole of the mystical Lake District National Park and the stunning Yorkshire Dales at your fingertips.
