Perfectly positioned near the Yorkshire Dales National Park and close to local amenities, accommodation offers an ideal base for couples, families, or friends looking to explore the wonders of the Cumbrian countryside. Benefit from two off-road parking spaces, before heading indoors, firstly reaching the homely sitting room, with plush sofas to sink into, an electric fire to light, and a Smart TV for entertainment, a peaceful space to cosy up after a day of exploration. The kitchen/diner is well-equipped, where you can rustle up and enjoy homecooked meals as a four, also featuring a washing machine and dishwasher for convenience. End the evening with an indulgent soak in the Jacuzzi bath, before sloping off to sleep in one of the two double bedrooms on offer. Enjoy your morning coffee from the bench to the front of the home, before heading into the market town of Kirkby Stephen, where you can take a stroll around the cobbled streets, marvel at the architecture of St. Stephen's Church, or visit the historic butcher’s shop, with a plethora of additional shops, restaurants, and pubs to take advantage of. Take a drive to Appleby-in-Westmorland to discover more of the area's stunning scenery, spot the ruins of Appleby Castle, and snap a few iconic photos of the River Eden, or venture to Sedbergh, a tranquil town boasting a range of independent shops, pubs, cafés, and restaurants, along with plenty of walking trails guiding you through the national park. Continuing your exploration, visit the charming town of Barnard Castle, home to the ruins of Barnard Castle; take a stroll whilst admiring the Georgian architecture, and grab a bite to eat at one of the many eateries across the high street, before brushing up on your local knowledge at The Bowes Museum. Soak up the best of Cumbria from Larimar.
