The property

A sweet, semi-detached stone cottage, quietly tucked away through an archway off the High Street, in the small town of Brough, near Kirkby Stephen.

With cosy accommodation, full of character, this charming property is well placed for exploring the North Pennine countryside, with easy access to pretty market towns and the Dales and Lakes.

The comfortable sitting room has a lovely homely feel, with whitewashed walls and a painted beamed ceiling.

The bright, cheerful kitchen has a small dining area, whilst upstairs there are two pretty bedrooms and the family bathroom.

French doors from the sitting room open onto a delightful, small, enclosed and sheltered garden, with a charming covered open porch with a slate roof; a tranquil and private spot in which to soak up the sun with a morning coffee, before heading out for the day.

A two-minute stroll brings you to the local amenities, with a pub, shop, tea room and fish and chip shop, while Brough Castle is a little further.

With the famous Pennine Way on the doorstep, walkers are in their element, with the beautiful surrounding scenery and fells to enjoy.

It's just a few minutes’ drive to the larger market town of Kirkby Stephen, which has an excellent choice of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, plus a traditional weekly market.

Why not take a ride on the renowned Settle-Carlisle railway, or visit picturesque Appleby, which offers riverside walks, independent shops and is known for its annual horse fair?

Guests will enjoy driving through beautiful scenery to visit the Bowes Museum with its stunning exhibits, or taking a trip up the Tees Valley to High Force and Cauldron Snout waterfalls.

A great location for a wonderful holiday.

About the location

BROUGH

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.
