The property

Nestled on the outskirts of Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria, is this superb, two bedroom first-floor apartment, Howgills.

Enjoying a fantastic location with easy access to both the National Parks of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, as well as a stylish open-plan interior with contemporary furnishings, Howgills makes for a wonderful dwelling for couples or a family of four looking for their next adventure to Cumbria.

Park-up in the off-road parking space in the private car park which used to serve the former hotel, pub and restaurant, before unloading your bags and making your way up to your new home-from-home.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where you will find a well-equipped kitchen with everything you need to whip up delicious feasts, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, along with a handy dishwasher and washing machine for keeping your space tidy.

Settle down to tuck-in to a tasty meal at the dining table for four, as the wine is poured, and plans are made for the days ahead.

After your meal, retire to the sofa where you can snuggle up in front of your favourite film for the rest of the evening.

Wash away a day of adventures in the well-appointed shower room, before stepping into the warm embrace of a fluffy towel, courtesy of the heated towel rail.

As your eyes grow heavy, choose from two tastefully decorated bedrooms to catch your rest, a super-king-size and a twin, both perfect for catching your rest in.

Explore the local town, where you will find the Stainmore Railway Company right on your doorstep, sure to be a hit with any railway enthusiasts in your party, which details the railways history and offers rides aboard a vintage steam train along the Carlisle-Settle line.

Continue further into the town where you will find an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants, as well as takeaway for those evenings where you don’t fancy dining out.

Take a stroll along the River Eden into the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where you will find the fascinating sites of the 14th-century Wharton Hall, Lammerside Castle and Pendragon Castle.

Whilst exploring the Yorkshire Dales, you will find plenty to do, including the caves of Ingleborough and Malham Cove to explore, the picturesque waterfalls of Janet’s Foss and Scaleber Force and the peaks of Whernside, Fountains Fell and Pen-y-ghent, which offer fantastic walking trails, hikes, and breath-taking views at their top.

Next stop is the Lake District National Park, home to the famous lakes of Ullswater, Windermere and Coniston Water, each of which you can choose from a wealth of watersports opportunities, including paddleboarding, sailing and kayaking.

Experience the historic delights speckled throughout, with Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens, Lowther Castle, Wray Castle, the National Trust site of Sizergh, Ambleside Roman Fort and Wordsworth Grasmere all easily accessible from Howgills.

For an unforgettable adventure to Cumbria, choose Howgills.
