The property

Resting at the heart of Kirkby Stephen, just a stone’s throw from the crisp running waters of the River Eden in the upper Eden Valley lies the charming, first-floor apartment of Muddy Boots – Scarpa. With off-road parking, an enclosed patio area, and a superb location close to nearby amenities, this delightful home serves as an idyllic base for a family of four or group of sharing friends who are looking to explore the many wonders contained within the Cumbrian countryside. Step into your wonderful new abode, where you will discover a tastefully-presented, open-plan living space, featuring a fully-equipped kitchen housing sleek appliances that can be used to rustle up delicious, home-cooked dinners. Savour your meals with your loved ones at the dining table, before you settle down on the plush corner sofa to enjoy a film on the Smart TV as you plan the rest of your getaway. As day rolls into night, refresh with a rejuvenating shower before you head for a well-earned rest in either an inviting king or twin bedroom. If you can tear yourself from your lovely new lodgings, head out to explore more of what your surroundings have to offer. A stroll into Kirkby Stephen will bring you to several convenience stores where you can stock up on essentials, whilst a tasty lunch can be had at The Mango Tree, The White Hare Café, or The Taggy Man pub. For a full day out, jump in the car and set out to visit the many iconic landmarks that dwell close by. A brief drive north into the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty will take you to the breath-taking spot of Low Force Waterfall, whilst a trip in the opposite direction will bring you to Swaledale Museum and Bolton Castle in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Your trip to the Eden Valley would also be incomplete without exploring the many wonders of the Lake District National Park, where the Holehird Gardens and the National Trust spot of Fell Foot represent just a fraction of what you can do whilst you’re in the region. For a holiday in Cumbria you’ll never forget, book Muddy Boots – Scarpa.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
