  • “The cottage was a little more remote than we'd expected but the scenery was spectacular.”

    Well equipped, lovely welcome pack & spacious. Wifi was intermittent.

    - Mrs Elms, September 2021

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. The community is in the process of putting in superfast broadband so soon the WiFi issue will be improved. We hope to welcome you back to Clover Cottage in the future. Property Owner

The property

Kirkby Stephen 5 miles.

Clover Cottage is a charming stone-built cottage located in the village of Outhgill, not too far from Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria and its abundance of natural attractions.

Set over three floors, this retreat is perfect for the whole family to enjoy.

The ground floor features a beautiful farmhouse kitchen, designed to an exceptional standard, with a dining table that seats up to eight people, and plenty of space to rest with a warm cup of tea in the early hours.

Boasting a contemporary feel, with patio doors opening out to the enclosed garden, you can spend much of your downtime simply relaxing here.

A bunk room is ideal for housing the children and a shower room completes the ground floor.

Wander upstairs to the lounge; a signature piece of the cottage, comprising a split layout that is almost a mirror image on both sides, with two sets of sofas for you to choose from.

A-frame beams, Velux windows and a woodburning stove promise to add a sense of charm to those cosy nights.

That's not all, with the addition of a Juliet balcony, you can stroll outside at your own leisure and take in the delightful garden views.

Three bedrooms are located on the next floor, joined by a family bathroom, which comes presented as an all-white suite, elevated by a free-standing bath.

The final double bedroom is accessed via another staircase, tucked away beneath a series of beams with calming views of the hills that invite natural lighting inside.

Situated between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, the traditional market town of Kirkby Stephen hosts a variety of shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs where you can revel in the delights of local produce and tasty meals.

Outdoor fans will be in their element in this charming town as it has a whole host of activities set in its beautiful nature surroundings, grab your bike and cycle on the Walney to Wear cycle route which will take you from coast to coast or grab your rod and head to the River Eden or Bessy Beck Trout Fisher to catch something for your supper!

Unleash your inner historian and take a trip to the impressive Brough Castle, stemming from the 1200’s and later restored by Lady Anne Clifford in the 17th century, where you can also visit St Michael’s Parish Church near to the castle to learn more about the region or indulge in an ice cream from the Brough Castle Ice Cream Parlour.

Grab your walking boots and head to the idyllic Jubilee Park which is home to an award-winning summer house and a host of rare trees and plants, your inner horticulturalist will be impressed.

Meet the local’s and purchase souvenirs at the Kirkby Stephen Market every Monday where you’ll be sure to find some hidden treasures.
