About the property

Kirkby Stephen 6 miles.

Perched within the breath-taking Yorkshire Dales National Park, with the picturesque Lake District in striking distance, is the superb Heggerscale House.

This outstanding base is perfect for a friends and family gathering to Cumbria, with a bubbling hot tub and sauna to look forward to after a day exploring the countryside.

This welcoming dwelling has retained a wealth of original features, including exposed beams and an open-fire, with quaint touches to ensure a warming stay.

Look forward to spending your evenings rustling up a home-cooked meal within the amply equipped kitchen, before hosting a delightful dinner party within the dining room, where you and your loved ones can gather to tuck into your delicious meal and plan the days ahead.

Upstairs, you will find five well-presented bedrooms, each enjoying a different layout to ensure a sleeping arrangement to suit your group.

If you are looking for an hour away from the rest of the group, dip into the warm bath within the family bathroom which houses an endearing tile design.

Continuing to impress is this cottage’s outdoor area, where you and your loved ones can enjoy a well-deserved drink before dipping into the hot tub to appreciate the countryside views further, or unwind within the sauna.

If you can tear yourself away from this cottage, venture to the market town of Kirkby Stephen, where you will be delighted to find a good selection of shops and pubs to suit all ages and tastes.

The cottage is perfect for an outdoor enthusiast, with a multitude of walks to be enjoyed within the surrounding area.

Explore the Howgill Fells, which plays host to Cautley Spout which is considered to be England’s highest waterfall or the popular old Darlington to Tebay train line route.

Alternatively, brush up on the local history by visiting Bernard Castle to enjoy a fine example of English heritage.

Heggerscale House is an endearing base for exploring the majestic location further.
