Manor Lodge is an upside down detached property, set in the grounds of a manor house just two minutes stroll from the shops and restaurants of Kirkby Stephen. There are two ground floor bedrooms – a double and a twin – while the living accommodation is on the first floor, with a bathroom and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

Central Accommodaton in Kirkby Stephen
The property was very clean and comfortable with plenty of room for the two of us. However, although both bedrooms were quite spacious, the living/dining area would be very cramped for four adults diining in. The property is described as 'set in beautiful mature gardens' however, this is the owner's garden which you do not have access to, without the owners permission; a fact that should be highlighted in the description. The property is very well situated within an easy five to ten minutes walk to all the shops, pubs, restaurants and takeaways in the town. It should also be noted that the property is next to a busy main road with traffic noise even on an night, in case this may bother you. We did enjoy our stay at Manor Lodge and despite some wet weather, found plenty of walks in the vicinity of Kirkby Stephen, in the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.

Lovely place to stay - close to village centre for all amenities, clean, comfortable and with all the essentials and utilities you need. Walked in the Eden Valley plus ideal base for Ullswater, Derwent Water and Rydal in the lakes - last day we day tripped to York, c 90 mins away. Recommend and would rent again if we go back to the area.

Perfect location for visiting nortern England
We stayed in Kirkby Stephne for a week. We travelled with car. The cottage was clean and had a good standard. It was situated closed to the Town centre. Just 5 minutes walk to pubs and resturants. The cottage is small, and maximum 4 person. On the down side: one bathroom but that was ok for us, just beeing two person. No wifi, but you can live without internet for a week. The pub "Black Bull" in Town centre has free wifi - and good ale and food! The purpose for us was golf, and there is a lot of courses closed to Kirkby Stephens. I recommend Appleby golf course.

We had a great holiday, good weather and a choice of walking probably unchallenged in its variety ie hills over 2000ft to pastoral river walks include a lot of history with geology and natural history and what more can a walker want? The cottage was very comfortable and the splendid garden private, it was the perfect place for us. Kirkby Stephen is a really understated town and in its own way has just about everything for everybody. We found the pubs friendly and good value, there are plentiful dining opportunities. We are experienced fell walkers and to have The Howgills and Pennines Range on your doorstep along with so many local hills and The Dales only a short drive away is fantastic. The owners live within the grounds and were friendly and helpful, the garden is private and beautiful. Parking is next to the entrance with plenty of room and yards from the main road and yet so quiet.

Brilliant Week In Kirkby Stephen
We have just returned from a fantastic week at Manor Lodge, yes we got the weather which always helps but the situation and comfort there was excellent.All rooms were spotless and it's so comfortable, we slept like " Logs" all week, it has everything you need and the garden is private and quite stunning.If you enjoy nature then you could spend all day bird watching from the verandah, we had a Tawny Owl every night sitting quietly for half an hour opposite the entrance and teens of Bats. The Kirkby Stephen Macaws were briefly seen, heard first as usual, they remain an interesting feature of the town, we first spotted them over ten years ago whilst out walking, we thought that we had spotted a rare bird but now know that they return to aviary every night but are allowed free travel throughout the day . The owners were polite and helpful, the situation is two minutes from the centre of town and there is plenty of room to park and you are then straight on to the main road. We walked everyday, the Howgills/Dales/Eden Valley/Mallerstang and Wild Boar ranges are all within minutes by car.We have never understood why this area is not more popular.The Town is small but has adequate options re eating and drinking, it has 3 Fish&Chip Shops for a start, The White Lion sells beer for ?2 a pint ( Bitter/ Lager ) The Coast To Coast Chippie sells Fish&Chips/peas for ?3:80p so you can't go wrong!
