The property

Wild Boar is a fabulous, first-floor apartment nestled in the market town of Kirkby Stephen.

Perfect for couples or small families, this open-plan dwelling features high spec fixtures and fittings throughout, providing an ideal base for those looking to explore the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North Pennines.

After a day of rambling the wild outdoors, look forward to unwinding within the open-plan living space, complete with a corner sofa and Smart TV so you can catch up on your favourite shows.

Dust off those cooking books and rustle up a delicious meal within the kitchen, equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a dishwasher, so you won’t have to lift a finger when it comes to washing up!

Sleeping up to four guests, Wild Boar features two spacious bedrooms, a super-king-size and a king-size, both with built-in storage with plenty of hanging space for your personal belongings.

Begin each morning with a rinse in the spacious walk-in shower, before strolling to the town centre in search for some breakfast goodies.

If you don’t feel like cooking after a day of exploring, there is a pub which offers takeaway food located at a nearby campsite 200 yards away, along with a great selection of pubs and restaurants in Kirkby Stephen.

The town is also home to a fascinating heritage railway station, where you can enjoy a scenic pursuit on the historic Carlisle to Settle line - a must-do travel experience!

Outdoor lovers can easily embark on adventures from the apartment, surrounded by and on the borders of, what is effectively three National Parks; to the north lies the North Pennines, to the South is the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Lake District National Park to the west.

While exploring the region, the market town of Kendal is within 20 miles, known as the gateway to the southern Lake District, and is the Cumbrian hotspot for retail therapy.

There are many attractions to suit all tastes, making Wild Boar a splendid base in any season.
