The property

Ideally placed for exploring the delights of Cumbria and the dramatic moorlands of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is this elegant barn conversion, Dairy Cottage, situated on the outskirts of Kirkby Stephen.

Resting on a working farm, Dairy Cottage is a wonderful find for families seeking a rural base in which to explore the surrounding area, home to a plethora of walks, historical landmarks, cosy towns and villages.

Begin your Cumbrian adventure by stepping into the spacious kitchen/diner, where the contemporary fitted units are certain to entice the budding chef of the group to whip up some delicious meals by making use of the quality appliances, including an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, accompanied by a handy dishwasher.

Choose to dine upon the well-presented dining table, set up for four people or during a balmy evening, take dining outdoors onto the rear courtyard, where table and chairs are placed for you to catch the final glimpses of sunshine during the summer months.

Relax into your evening by heading up the staircase to the first floor, where the exposed beams frame the plush seating arrangement, the gas stove and the TV, a great way to conclude your day before heading to bed.

The elegant interior design is continued into the two bedrooms, comprising of a ground-floor twin bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room, both offering a refreshing ambience to wake up to each morning.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings by taking a short trip into Kirkby Stephen, where you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of places to eat and drink, as well as a number of shops for picking up any last minute essentials and treats.

During summer afternoons, be sure to take a picnic to where “Frank’s Bridge” crosses the River Eden before meandering the cobbled streets within the town filled with quaint corners, vibrant floral displays and attractive gardens.

After refuelling at one of the many tearooms within the town look forward to exploring the magnitude of walking spots within the area, including the magnificent Howgill Fells or hop on a bike and cycle the famous Coast-to-Coast route.

Guests of Dairy Cottage can also look forward to exploring the walking routes upon the Yorkshire Dales, North Pennines and Lake District.

However, a slower-paced pastime can be had by enjoying the beautiful surroundings from the comfort of a traditional steam train with the famous Settle-Carlisle railway, crossing the remote regions of the Yorkshire Dales and North Pennines.

Alternatively, spend afternoons visiting the pretty villages of Nateby, Soulby and Ravenstonedale or head further afield to visit the towns of Penrith and Kendal, each one offering their own idyllic charm.

After a wonderful day of exploring, look forward to returning to Dairy Cottage for a well-deserved rest.
