Easy access to surrounding countryside

Situated on a small working farm this mid 19th-century former byre has been thoughtfully renovated to retain much of its character with exposed beams and quarry tiled floor. With its own sunny, secluded garden the detached single storey cottage is situated high up in the unspoilt Eden Valley, on the boundary of the new Westmorland Dales, the extension of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Here the holidaymaker has easy access to the surrounding countryside, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The bustling market town of Kirkby Stephen is 2.5 miles - the Coast to Coast walk passes through here and the town also has a station on the Settle-Carlisle railway. Appleby, with its castle, swimming pool and famous annual horse fair, is 9 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2.5 miles.

This is a very nice single-story cottage for 2. It has a decent sized fully enclosed garden which was both small and large dog proof. The family was very friendly and helpful. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed and was very comfortable. The bed was also very comfortable. We would stay at The Byre again and would recommend it especially if you have dogs.

What a wonderful place to stay, the cottage was really well equipped and very comfortable and the surrounding countryside was beautiful. Sitting in the garden with the only sound that of birdsong except for the occasional clipclop of a horse and rider coming down the road. The family were really pleasant and very helpful.We will be returning. P.S.wesaw red squirrels.
