    “Stunning little cottage”

    - Mr Hobson, October 2020

The property

Kirkby Stephen 4 miles.

Boasting an elevated position in a beautiful location, with superb vistas of the Pennines and amenities close by in the town of Kirkby Stephen, is Apple Tree Cottage.

Set on a working farm, next to the owner's caravan park, this stunning accommodation is accessed via an external staircase, perfect for families, couples and friends.

The attention to detail will be evident from the moment you step through the front door, with bright, uplifting colour schemes, vaulted ceiling and quirky fixtures to add to the character.

Cold wintry evenings will welcome the warmth from the woodburner set in one corner of the room, where you can curl up on the armchair with a good book.

There is also a glass door framing a patchwork of fields, which opens up to a Juliet-style balcony.

The kitchen is fully fitted in a stylish fashion with a lovely breakfast island and dining for four people, ideal for those family meals after a day exploring the local area.

Fresh, crisp mornings will have you stepping out onto the veranda with your morning coffee to take in the picturesque views.

Downstairs is where you will find the bedrooms and shower rooms, as well as a handy utility room housing laundry facilities.

The master bedroom even has its own en-suite Jack-and-Jill shower room.

On return form a long walk through luscious countryside, enjoy a warm soak in the hot tub and later sit out on the patio with a refreshing drink in hand, soaking up the country atmosphere.

Nearby is the market town of Kirkby Stephen, full of amenities to replenish your cupboards, grab some lunch at one of the cafés or enjoy a drink at the pub.

It is a pretty town with cobbled streets, quaint corners and a picnic area where “Frank’s Bridge” crosses the River Eden.

There is a plethora of waling and cycling, the settle-Carlisle railway line and many more attractions waiting to be discovered.

Set in the heart of the Eden Valley, with the lakes, fells and lush dales nearby, this makes a wonderful base for your next family holiday.
