    “We had a lovely stay here in April.”

    The cottage is warm and comfortable, very clean, nicely furnished and with new bathrooms and kitchen. Very well equipped too - one of the best we’ve stayed in. Parking for 2 cars and very handy for the town centre. Communication with the owner easy. Would definitely stay here again.

The property

Nestled in the market town of Kirkby Stephen is this traditional, family-friendly cottage, Summer-seat. Close to amenities and surrounded by countryside, this homely cottage is ideal for a family of six's rural holiday in Cumbria. An off-road parking space greets you on arrival to unpack your be-longings and make yourself right at home. Kick off your boots in the porch and locate the kitchen, a fully-equipped space for a self-catering holiday where the family chef can prepare home-cooked delights; there's even a washing machine and dishwasher for stress-free clean ups. A beautifully furnished living/dining room invites you to set the table and catch up with your loved ones over dinner. Then, sink into the leather sofas and unwind with a family-favourite on the Smart TV, or why not step into your private garden? A lovely spot for summer days, the garden is enclosed for little ones to play on the lawn, whilst alfresco dining awaits with the outdoor seating and barbecue. Completing the ground floor is a shower room to refresh after the day's adventures or climb the stairs for a relaxing soak in the bathroom. Three bedrooms also rest on the first floor with cottage furnishings and bedside lamps for night-time readers; choose between two doubles or a twin room. Local amenities are a stone's throw away from Summerseat in Kirkby Stephen; pick up es-sentials at the convenience store, stop for pub grub at The Taggy Man, or perhaps hop on The Set-tle-Carlisle Railway for unforgettable scenes from your window. If you'd prefer to get outside, there are plenty of walks and cycle routes nearby, including the old Darlington to Tebay railway; you'll also have the Yorkshire Dales National Park and North Pennines AONB within easy reach! Nearby locations include Appleby-in-Westmorland and Sedbergh, two picturesque market towns, as well as Barnard Castle, home to romantic castle ruins overlooking the river, the historic Butter-market in the town centre, and The Bowes Museum. A wonderful base for touring, the Lake Dis-trict National Park is a short drive west; visit Pooley Bridge for boat tours along Ullswater, explore the bustling town of Windermere with plenty of hikes nearby, or pack your clubs for a round of golf at Kendal's Golf Club. Offering something for every holidaymaker, secure your stay at Sum-merseat for your next family-friendly holiday in Cumbria.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
