Property Description

Easy access to surrounding countryside

Situated on a small working farm this mid 19th-century former byre has been thoughtfully renovated to retain much of its character with exposed beams and quarry tiled floor. With its own sunny, secluded garden the detached single storey cottage is situated high up in the unspoilt Eden Valley where the holidaymaker has easy access to the surrounding countryside, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The bustling market town of Kirkby Stephen is 2.5 miles - the Coast to Coast walk passes through here and the town also has a station on the Settle-Carlisle railway. Appleby, with its castle, swimming pool and famous annual horse fair, is 9 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2.5 miles.

All on ground floor: Living room with beams/dining room/kitchen with beams. 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with toilet.

Woodburner in living room included. Oil central heating and electricity included (£25per week October-March). Bed linen included. Electric cooker. Microwave. Enclosed lawned garden with furniture. Ample parking. NB: River in grounds.
