  • "A really fantastic break in this lovely, well maintained, cottage."

    Very peaceful but within wreach of riverside walks and walking distance to the centre of Kirkby Stephen. Beds were very comfortable and the cottage was lovely and warm. The television had all all the channels you would want and was a good size for the room. WiFi signal was very good. We visited The Taggy Man for lunch which was very good with nice, attentive staff. We also attended the quiz night on Tuesday at 7 pm and it was excellent with sausage butties at half time - all for just £1.50 each (dog friendly - very). Finally we have to mention The White Hare cafe. Fabulous breakfast, great friendly staff and very good prices We enjoyed our stay here so much we have booked to come back in March 2024. Thanks again for this experience.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. So pleased you enjoyed your stay & we will look forward to hosting you again in March. Property Owner

On arrival, park your car off-road and make your way into your inviting base, where you can find a well-equipped kitchen/diner, complete with cooking facilities for self-catering needs and a dining table for four guests.

From here, enjoy your afternoon cup of tea or evening glass of wine out in the garden, home to quality furniture for alfresco dining should you wish.

Completing the ground floor is a handy cloakroom, while upstairs you can find a full family bathroom with both a bath and walk-in shower, perfect for preparing for a day of walking.

When you're ready to rest your head, choose from a double bedroom, or a double with a sofa bed, ideal for a child sharing with their grown-ups.
