  • "The place was generally good."

    Comfortable with good accessories, also a good list of instructions left. There were some issues , no toilet paper left, not sure if this was a mistake. The heating was a bit of an issue, as it was hot after turning the storage heaters off, possibly more instructions to be left. The hob was very temperamental, had to use certain pans or it would not work. It was advertised with Sky but no sports or movie package, was this right.

    Thank you for your feedback. We had endeavoured to cover all bases in the instruction booklet, especially for the cooker and heating system, but appreciate that more information may have been necessary. We apologise if it was misleading and for any disappointment with regards to the Sky package. Sport and movies are an extra cost and not one I'm afraid that we had included. Unfortunately, the welcome products including toilet paper were complimentary and not replenished during your stay. We hope that these issues did not take away from your enjoyment of your break at Robins Lodge. Kind regards, Pete and Karen Property Owner

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.
