A magnificent church conversion decorated to the highest of standards keeping many original features sandwiched between the Dales and Lakes.

This stunning church conversion sits in the centre of a small, quiet Cumbrian village and is perfectly placed for a holiday home, as it is sandwiched between the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks. The unique design cleverly combines original features, such as stained glass windows, beams and stonework with a contemporary, open-plan style which offers light, bright and spacious living areas, an appealing kitchen with porcelain tiled floor, a bathroom with a free-standing roll-top bath plus two en-suite shower rooms, each with a walk-in shower, along with comfortable and well-appointed bedrooms. Set in beautiful countryside, the area provides excellent walking and very good cycling. The traditional market town of Kirby Stephen, 2 miles, offers a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, and is also on the scenic Carlisle to Settle railway line. Within a 40-minute drive, visitors can explore Ullswater and the Eastern Lakes, Swaledale, Wensleydale and the lesser known Teasdale, along with the popular towns of Keswick, Kendal, Barnard Castle and Hawes. Tan Hill, the highest pub in England, is a short, pretty drive away. The river which runs through the village of Soulby is a focal point for picnics and paddling, and children can also enjoy the nearby playground. Shops, pubs and restaurants 2 miles.

    Amazing beautiful "cottage". Owners extremely helpful. Wonderful village location. Sympathetic and sensitive conversion to an extremely high standard. Very clean and bright. Would recommend highly. Great area (Obviously!)

    This is a wonderful property and somewhere I would happily live never mind holidaying at. St Luke's is finished to a very high standard and is very comfortable. We found all in a very clean condition and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. The furniture and beds are comfortable. I do like a good nights sleep! The garden is very large (it is a churchyard after all) and is secure for you dog to run in. The main gate has a drop down flap to lower after closing, but if you have a small dog it may get through the bars. We always travel with a roll of plastic meshing that we tied to the gate and problem solved. The wall is about 4 feet high all around. Ideal location for trips to either the Dales or Lakes, but we enjoyed walking locally too. There is a pretty walk along a disused railway line just minutes from the door. Kirkby Stephen is a bustling little town with all amenities we required, but Sainsbury's do deliver if you shop online. The neighbour's are very friendly and a mine of local information. We were even invited to the monthly lunchtime gathering at the Village Hall. This is only the second property that we have stayed at and been more than happy to score 10's all round. And no, we're not related to the owner!

    We had a lovely time at Old St Luke's Church. It is very well equipped, comfortable and clean. The efficient owners thought of everything even down to supplying coffee,tea,sugar,bread,butter,cakes, also a nice bottle of white wine, very thoughtful. We will be returning in the future. It is also very dog friendly and our Labrador retriever loved the garden. The stained glass windows were beautiful especially with the sun shining through what a gem of a place. Would highly recommend.

    2nd time back here and certainly wasn't disappointed. Just stunning altogether. . Great places to eat out and plenty to do and see.... Loved the extras that wasn't there last year, good idea! Tv's etc in the bedrooms. ... Nothing to fault everything you need and could want is in the church.. 100% to the cleaning of this church it was immaculate. .. We were lucky with the weather and yes would go back in a few years time as there are other places we want to stay.. So in a nutshell. Thankyou...

    Lovely holiday house. One or two tweaks and we would give it 10 out of 10.

    The church has been completely renovated to a high standard. The beds are particularly comfortable and the wood burning stove in the lounge was very welcome during our stay for the New Year celebrations. The utility room came in very handy as we had taken our dog with us and the supply of dog towels was a lovely touch. Soulby is a beautiful quaint village, it's just a pity there is no pub! The nearest shops/pubs/eating places are 2 miles away in Kirkby Stephen (via a rather perilous one-vehicle wide road!).

    We had a great week at St Luke's church. The area is wonderful with a selection of local shops in Kirkby Stephen just 2 miles away. The village of Soulby has a lovely village green and a couple of pleasant walks. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable, we had all the services and equipment we required throughout our stay.
