The property

A semi -detached cottage with a friendly and inviting aura, located close to the high street in the small rural town of Brough.

Equally perfect for couples, families or friends, this cottage offers a charming holiday throughout the year.

Upon entering you will be welcomed by a sitting room home to leather sofas and a multi-fuel stove, ideal for a cosy night in.

To the other side, a kitchen is well equipped and makes a homely setting to prepare your favourite meals before resting at the nearby dining table.

Follow the stairs and a family bathroom awaits, hosting a free standing bath and a shower for your preference.

The all white fittings complement each other well, and this is a lovely place to relax at the end of the day.

A king-size bedroom brings an almost traditional touch to the retreat, where you can peacefully read a book before laying down to sleep.

Further along the hallway, a twin bedroom is laced with pretty bedding and accessories.

A pub, restaurant, hotel with bar and restaurant, shop, chip shop, and tea room/cafe and all just a few short yards away, and Brough Castle is only a short stroll.

Although the cottage has no outside space of its own, sandwiched between the North Pennines AONB, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Lake District, this is a walkers paradise.

The market towns of Kirkby Stephen, Penrith and Appleby are all within easy reach.

A wonderful cottage with plenty to explore at your own leisure.

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.
