A perfect location for a romantic break for two, this one bedroom stone-built cottage has been beautifully converted and has a prime location in rolling countryside. This outstanding semi-detached, stone-built cottage is located just one mile from the village of Soulby and three miles from the market town of Kirkby Stephen. Set amongst farm meadows and rolling pastures, this unique property has been skilfully converted from a wing of the original farmhouse and now features a cosy main bedroom, spacious sitting room, well-equipped kitchen, modern bathroom, and an enclosed courtyard – a wonderful space for dining alfresco. Kirkby Stephen... is within easy reach and offers a wide array of shops, restaurants, and pubs, making this a well served home from home in which guests can relax, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Amenities: LPG central heating. Electric oven, microwave, fridge, washing machine, tumble dryer, TV with DVD, CD/radio, small library of books/DVDs. All fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Ample off road parking. Enclosed courtyard with furniture. One well-behaved pet welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 3 miles.
Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
Town: The pretty, rural village of Soulby quietly rests near the confluence of the River Eden and Smardale Beck, just over two miles from Kirkby Stephen. Something of a sleepy backwater, it is surrounded by traditional farm meadows and picturesque pastures and fells. 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, cafes, restaurants and pubs for every taste and budget. Enjoy many excellent walks and cycle routes nearby, explore the magnificent Howgill Fells or visit the Settle to Carlisle railway line. A superb location with the whole of the mystical Lake District National Park and the stunning Yorkshire Dales at your fingertips.

The cottage is lovely, and the owner was friendly and helpful. It was furnished comfortably and was very clean and inviting.The welcome tray was fine, if you drink- which I don't, but I did enjoy the endless supply of eggs. There were books and magazines, so that I was never short of something to read, The countryside is lovely, and well worth looking at, and the local towns had interesting shops and cafes. The weather was fine, and not over-warm, but it didn't matter much as there was plenty to do indoors if necessary. There is a lovely little church in Soulby where I shared the service with people I had known a good number of years ago.The only thing that was disappointing was the lack of garden centres and antique shops, which I particularly like, but that had absolutely nothing to do with the cottage or its amenities.
A fantastic cottage in a great location

The cottage is warm, spacious and well-presented. It has everything you could possibly need for a great holiday - stunning views, lots of wildlife, a well-equipped kitchen, a comfy bed and one of the best collections of Dvds and books we have come across. What's more, the location is second to none - on one hand you have the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, on the other there is the stunning Lake District. We also found a number of lovely local walks in and around Kirkby Stephen. In short, a walker's paradise! We will be back soon.
A peaceful and comfortable location

The cottage is well appointed, comfortable and in a very quiet location, yet close enough to Kirkby Stephen for any shopping requirements. It's also well located for trips east into the Dales and west into the Northern Lakes.

Stayed with my mum and boxer dog. The cottage had everything you needed to unwind and relax including stunning views, amazingly prolific birdlife, clear starlit skys a cosy welcoming environment. Kirkby Stephen a short drive away is great for walking and exploring.

The owners are friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. The web pictures do not do it justice, it is spacious, comfortable and in a beautiful location. It is in easy reach of the lakes and easy drives into West Yorkshire.There is a good choice of pubs and restaurants within a few miles. Very impressed with our stay.
The dog enjoyed it too.

A lovely, clean, well equiped, warm and cosy cottage with all of the basic essentials provided; this included a jug of milk and a bottle of wine. The cottage was within easy reach of the main roads making it simple to explore the local area or to travel further afield to the lakes, which were less than an hour away.
The cottage was a calm oasis surrounded by fields full of sheep with their lambs gamboling, Ospreys and many other birds could be seen flying, and the bird feeder in the garden provided hours of entertainment; finches, tits, field mice and Great Spotted Woodpeckers were regular visitors.
