  • "Good to look at and comfortable."

    The property was well equipped. The heating was disappointing. We grew up with coal so I don't think it was our lack of fire lighting skills to blame. The fire was fuel hungry but heat poor. Maybe best for summer months. Loved the bedroom though.

  • "The cottage was lovely and it is situated in a friendly village, The cottage was spotless clean and it had the majority of amenities and it created a family atmosphere with the open plan room on the ground floor."

    However there are a couple of things I was disappointed with is that I stayed over the Christmas period and I requested through Sykes Cottages if the house would be decorated for Christmas of which the reply was yes, however upon arriving there was no Christmas Tree so I had to go out and buy one as this was my first Christmas holiday and also I read that candles could not be used in the house which was disappointing. The coal fire was hard to keep going (possibly this was due to me as I was not used to using a coal fire more of a wood burner). On a whole an enjoyable break.

    Ideally based location. Better if there was outside space but this was explained clearly in listing.

  • "Very good accommodation, but I would include some additional advice in the advert ."

    The house relied 100% on solid fuel heating , so it is advisable to keep the fire topped up during the evenings as this supplies heat to a back boiler heating the upstairs rooms via radiators. Not an issue, but there is no gas/electric option. Fuel available from local garages.

    We really enjoyed our stay here and the close proximity to the A66 made it an ideal base. Nice local walks too and dog friendly.

  • "The cottage was everything it said on the website and more."

    The flooring was perfect for wet dogs and muddy boots and could be kept clean easily. I would recommend taking slippers though to keep your feet warm whilst in the cottage. The extras in the cottage made the stay so much more welcoming. The welcome pack was excellent and even included a welcome pack for the doggies. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and allowed us to do some proper cooking whilst we were there. The multifuel fire kept the cottage toasty warm but there were even extra heaters and blankets if you were cold - not that we needed them. Excellent location and perfect cottage. Easy booking and the owner answered our pre-booking questions very quickly. Would recommend Sykes cottages again and especially this cottage.

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.
