Apartment had everything needed. The only thing it didn't have was a washing machine/tumble dryer, which would have been useful when we came back grubby and wet from a couple of walks. The bed was very comfortable. The apartment is right in the heart of Kirkby Stephen, which was convenient for the shops and the pubs, and there were walks from the apartment or within a short drive. The wine and chocolates in the apartment when we arrived were a nice touch. The only downside was parking, which was limited next to the apartment, but there was parking in the street behind and a walk-through. If all else failed there is a public car park a bit further back a few minutes walk away. It could also get noisy at night, especially at the weekend. The pub just up and across the road from the apartment seemed to attract the youngsters, who were quite vocal a couple of nights. Also it would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems, as there were two flights of steep stairs to get to the sitting room and kitchen and the bedroom was on the first floor. However we would certainly consider staying there again if we were in the area and we would recommend to friends and family.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed everything about this wonderful cottage. From the moment you open the door there is a calm and loving feeling about Laburnum Cottage. Everything is immaculate, luxurious and perfectly set up for a couple on a break in the Lake or Peak District. We didn't actually look too closely at the map when we booked (thought we were staying in the Lakes...) however this was a great spot with fantastic village amenities, the chip shops are goood.
