    The cottage was stunning . The only thing missing was a DVD player which would have been the icing on the cake, particularly as the weather wasn't great! The owners were lovely, friendly and very helpful

The property

This immaculately-presented detached cottage is set just off the main thoroughfare in the Cumbrian town of Kirby Stephen.

Built in an upside down style, the cottage offers lovely open views of the countryside from its triple aspect windows and Juliet balcony on the first floor sitting room, and is an ideal base for friends and family to relax and explore the stunning surrounding area.

The two beautifully-furnished bedrooms are on the ground floor alongside the family bathroom with corner bath and large shower.

Upstairs is a large, well-equipped kitchen with a dining table, from where there are double doors to the light-filled sitting room with long range views to the Howgills.

After a busy day’s activities, enjoy an alfresco meal in your patio garden or relax in the comfort of this spacious cottage.

Kirkby Stephen has a range of pubs, cafes, antique shops, independent shops, a delicious bakery, Tourist Information Centre and a laundrette.

Close by is the auction house and you can observe the activity from the sitting room and watch the auctions in progress.

Situated close to the Eden Valley, this area is a haven for walkers and cyclists with the famous Coast-to-Coast walk passing through the town.

Also in the area are a number of activities, such as horse riding, hang gliding, climbing and mountain biking.

Take a day trip on the picturesque Settle-Carlisle railway which stops in the town and enjoy the magnificent scenery that is all around.
