    A super clean comfortable cottage in a small quiet village a pleasant walk away from Kirkby Stephen with its wide range of shops and facilities. However the best pub serving exclent food is only 50m away from the cottage! This was our second visit and we are already planning our third. Need I say more?!

    Beautiful Old School House on the village green. Photographs of the school children taken in 1901 hang in the cottage and are a real connection with its past. The interior has been sympathetically updated and with the high ceilings gives you a feeling of light and space. Clean, comfortable and well equipped, one of the best places we have stayed in. The local pub, The Bay Horse is a minute away and was warm and welcoming, families and dogs also welcome. They serve a Sunday Carvery, lunch and dinner, would recommend. The market town of Kirby Stephen is just over a mile away and has a wide variety of shops. A perfect stay.
