Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We had a great holiday, we did not see any fish, but a duck came tapping on the window asking to be fed. There was also the added bonus of 3 Macaw parrot’s flying around the area (they belong to someone on the outskirt’s of the town they just let them have their free flight - wonerful to see.) July 2012.
  2. A cosy cottage close to the town centre with lovely views and good walks nearby. May 2012.
  3. Lovely cottage in scenic location. Enjoyed a peaceful relaxing break and hope to return. May 2012.
  4. A lovely little cottage in an unbeatable location. Don’t bother to bring too much with you, the cottage is well provided and the shops are a couple of minutes’ walk. April 2012.
  5. Delightfully cosy, tidy and quaint little cottage, with everything one needs for life’s daily necessities. Perfect location in a wonderful town with lots of walks right on the doorstep and plenty to do in the surrounding areas (30-45 minutes drive away). Local amenities fantastic and local residents very friendly and helpful. A perfect escape from a busy, urban life and an ideal getaway for a couple - a real home from home. Great bonus that the property allows Dogs as well - a spacious area for your pooch to run free, in a very safe, dog friendly and traffic free area. March 2012.
  6. Cottage is small but ideal for two people. Excellent views. After reading the visitors book I do wonder what some people do expect, the cottage is what its say. Ideal for lots of walks and would book again. Feb 2012.
  7. Lovely little cottage, lots of walks right on the doorstep, warm & welcoming, would recommend to family & friends. Dec 2011.
  8. Over the adjacent bridge and you’re in the countryside; two minutes walk via narrow, pedestrian-only lanes that ooze history, you’re in a busy High Street (look carefully and you might see a "wild" parrot flying overhead). Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall all an hour or so away. Kitchen/Diner is "cosy" to put it mildly, but we had a great time, so did our dogs. Sept 2011.
  9. Location ideal has described property cosy for two and handy for amenities would recommend for couple also a good base for dales & lakes. July 2011.
  10. This was the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in. Just perfect for 2 people. The view and location by the river Eden were fantastic and Kirkby Stephen was a charming place with friendly people, good food parrots and hungry ducks! A wonderful holiday. June 2011.
  11. Location, well furnished with all you could need. Nov 2010.
  12. Property a bit small but a great location for walking and visiting areas near by. Sept 2010.
  13. It was clean and overlooked the river eden, well equipped and would recommend. July 2010.

  16. Clean. Well equipped. Lovely views. Comfy bed. March 2010.
  17. Lovely cottage, beautiful location, lovely views. Feb 2010.
  18. I knew from the description it was a small property but it was cosy and sufficient. The weather was exceptionally cold and snowy but the heaters had been left on before we arrived which was a blessing. Clean and tidy. Jan 2010.
  19. This is a good quality, small property, definitely only for two. (That is what we asked for). Well set out using good standard furnishings & fittings. A very good situation for walkers & cyclists, with two or more main routes leaving town at the door. Nov 2009.
  20. Quietly situated at the very edge of town, yet only 150 metres from the market square. The property was warm and comfortable...Oct 2009.
