The property

Resting on the outskirts of Kirkby Stephen centre in Cumbria, Stenkrith is a fabulous, second-floor penthouse apartment.

The property hosts four guests in two bedrooms, with sleek contemporary furnishings throughout, as well as easy access to the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North Pennines.

Secure your car in the off-road parking space and make yourself at home in Stenkrith!

Stock up the cupboards in the well-equipped kitchen to whip up delicious treats using the electric oven and hob, whilst the dishwasher does all the dirty work.

Gather in the chic, light-filled living/dining room for a hearty breakfast before the day's adventures or sink into the plush seating and catch your favourite shows on the Smart TV.

Your own private balcony is the perfect spot to unwind with a tipple and end the day on a high note!

Choose from the contemporary shower rooms to rinse off the day before climbing into bed to catch your rest.

Both bedrooms provide built-in storage and hanging space for your belongings; a super-king-size offers an en-suite shower room for added privacy, alongside a twin.

Less than a mile away from Stenkrith, you'll find a pub to dine out and take a break from the kitchen, as well as plenty of shops to stock up on the self-catering essentials.

Head to the centre of Kirkby Stephen to admire the traditional dwellings with old cobbled yards and picnic areas, whilst avid walkers and cyclists will relish the number of nearby routes leading into the surrounding countryside!

Follow the river further into the Yorkshire Dales, where budding historians can also discover the 14th-century Wharton Hallt, Lammerside Castle and Pendragon Castle, as well as the caves of Ingleborough, picturesque waterfalls and plenty of mountain trails for breath-taking views.

Picturesque towns are within easy reach, including Appleby-in-Westmorland for riverside walks, and Barnard Castle, home to a majestic castle overlooking the River Tees.

Pack your walking gear and venture into the unspoilt surroundings of North Pennines AONB; the Lake District is another must-visit, especially for watersports and outdoor enthusiasts, alongside the likes of Kendal, Grasmere and Ambleside for shops, eateries, historic sites and picture-perfect footpaths.

Add some luxury to your rural retreat with a stay at Stenkrith.
