Kirkby Stephen

The charming old market town of Kirkby Stephen lies in the southern reaches of the tranquil and beautiful Eden Valley, with easy access from your cottage to the Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the north Pennines; it’s the perfect cottage holiday break for wonderful days out. It really is set in the midst of some of the most lovely scenery and is the perfect base from which to explore the area.

This area is fantastic for cycling and walking and there is a wonderful variety of wildlife in the surrounding countryside. Indeed, within just a five mile radius of the village, you will come across four beautiful nature reserves that showcase the best of the local flora and fauna. More unusually you may catch sight of one of several parrots that call the village their home, they are often to be seen roosting on the local rooftops.

There are several other delightful villages within easy reach, but if you’re just looking for peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings, then this is most definitely the place for you.

There are plenty of shops catering for all your needs in the town, from those selling holiday essentials to a selection of quirky boutiques where it’s all too easy to while away a few hours browsing.

In the summer months, the village is positively ablaze with impressive floral displays and well-kept gardens; no wonder the village has been the proud holder of a ‘Cumbria in Bloom’ accolade.

    This beautiful and characterful Cumbrian farmhouse is surrounded by fields, with views to Wild Boar, Mallerstang, the Howgills and surrounding, picturesque countryside. It is situated 1¼ miles outside the popular village of Ravenstonedale with excellent food being served at the local hotels. The village also boasts a 9-18 hole golf course, children’s playground, tennis court, art gallery and St Oswald’s church, with its Gilbertine Monastery ruins. It is ideal for individuals looking for a unique and charming property with immense character, stone floor, three wood burners and wooden beams. The farmhouse is one of the early homes in the parish and is believed to have been built shortly after the English Civil War, in the time of Charles II.

Just one field away is Paradise, a tarn with breeding swans, lapwings, gulls, geese, curlew and ducks. Most days we have red squirrels visiting our feeders with swallows, blackbirds and blue tits nesting, hares boxing, buzzards soaring and lambs gambolling. At night time enjoy the sunsets, The Milky Way and stars. Row Foot is an ideal property for those seeking peace and quiet, surrounded by wildlife. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.

    We are delighted to include The Tower House within our portfolio, situated at Newbiggin, only 10 minutes drive from the M6 motorway. Ideally placed for exploring the delights of both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, Windermere is a mere 25 minutes drive away with Sedbergh and the impressive Howgill fells a 10 minute walk from the door. Once home to Elizabeth Gaunt, the last woman to be burned at the stake at Tyburn and a principal hiding place of Prince Charlie, The Tower House has a significant history, and the property retains the tower, which was used as a lookout for raiders from the Borders. Comfortable furnishings with many personal touches blend well with original features of oak panelling, flagstone floors and exposed stonework. The accommodation is spacious and flexible offering plenty of opportunity for escaping the rest of the party, both inside and out, to sit quietly and absorb the ambience of this truly unique house. The grounds are delightful with a variety of areas for sitting out and you’re almost guaranteed a sighting of red squirrels. There is plenty of level playing ground, including an orchard for the younger members of your party to run off some energy before enjoying dinner in the impressive dining hall.
