A lovely cottage, formerly a coaching inn, in a quiet courtyard location just a few yards from the high street in the small rural town of Brough, near Kirkby Stephen.

This stone-built cottage provides an ideal location for exploring this picturesque area, with the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Hadrian’s Wall all within a comfortable drive. This generously sized property boasts three welcoming bedrooms on the first floor, along with a family bathroom.

On the ground floor you will find a superb living room, complete with original features such as exposed stone, flagged floors and original oak beams. You will also find a well equipped kitchen diner for enjoying meals with family and friends, a cloakroom and a utility room. To the rear the enclosed south-facing garden is a superb spot for catching the sun and enjoying alfresco dining. From the front door, the high street is just a few short yards and brings you to the local amenities, with a good pub, shops, tea room and an excellent fish and chip shop, while Brough Castle is a short stroll away.

With the Pennine Way literally on the doorstep, this is a walker’s paradise, with many footpaths leading out into the beautiful scenery of the Eden Valley. It is just a short drive to the near neighbour, the larger market town of Kirkby Stephen, which has an excellent choice of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, plus a traditional weekly market. A ride on the renowned Settle-Carlisle railway is always a great day out, with the likes of the Ribblehead viaduct, the market towns of Settle, Skipton and Appleby all within easy reach.

A short drive across the A66 guests will enjoy a visit to the Bowes Museum with its stunning exhibits, or take a trip up the Tees Valley to High Force and Cauldron Snout waterfalls. A superb holiday base whatever the time of year.
