  • "The cottage is so beautifully decorated and everything is to a high standard."

    There is everything that you need for a comfortable and pleasant stay. The only thing which is required are curtains to the kitchen and lounge downstairs as this will provide more privacy to guests whom stay there. The location is amazing and the owners are very nice people. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a lovely and relaxing break away.

  • "Our stay at La’al Cragg was a joy from start to finish."

    The property is set on a farm and surrounded by fields and peace and calm. Just what we needed after a busy few months. The owners were really friendly and helpful. Nothing was a bother. The house was warm and cosy and the kitchen was amazing as was the log burner. A property we would like to return to next year.

About the location


Appleby-in-Westmorland 12 miles; Sedbergh 13 miles; Barnard Castle 21 miles; Penrith 22 miles; Reeth 22 miles; Kendal 23 miles; Middleton-in-Teesdale 27 miles; Ullswater Lake 35 miles..

Brough is a small town located in the Eden Valley, at the foot of the North Pennines, just four miles north of Kirkby Stephen and eight miles east of Appleby-in-Westmorland. It is a twin village, the southern part, Church Brough, lies on a former Roman road and was the setting for the Norman Brough Castle (once the site of a Roman camp), while the northern area, Market Brough, is sited on a medieval road. The difference in the two villages relates to the functions they once served; Church Brough’s houses stand around a market square decorated with a maypole, while Market Brough boasts a wide and long main street. The village’s claim to fame lies in its 18th-19th century importance as a coaching town for the England-Scotland run, where more than 10 inns catered to the stagecoach trade. A beautiful sleepy backwater, it is surrounded by traditional farm meadows and picturesque pastures and fells. Nearby, the traditional market town of Kirkby Stephen, once home to cotton mills and a large manufacturer of shoes and woollen hats, today hosts a variety of shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs for every taste and budget. Enjoy many excellent walks and cycle routes nearby; explore Penrith, Appleby and the magnificent Howgill Fells, enjoy a drink in Tan Hill, England's highest pub, or take a ride on the Settle-Carlisle railway. A superb location, with the whole of the mystical Lake District National Park and the stunning Yorkshire Dales at your fingertips.
