Beautiful cottage and a great location
Spent a lovely week at this cottage in September 2021. As a first holiday after lockdown it was perfect - tastefully decorated , spacious with comfortable bedrooms and a nice sun trap to sit outside at the rear. Kirkby Stephen has lots of amenities - pubs, great fish n chips and other takeaways, shops and cafes. Its also a great location to go walking from and not far away are the delightful villages of Appleby and Hawes.

We had such a lovely stay at Bayleaf cottage. A great perk is, that it is walking distance to the shops, pubs/bars, the river, hiking trails, bike trails etc. The cottage was very clean and tidy. The interior is modern and creative, and has a very homey/cozy feel to it. The sauna is a real treat too. We took our mountain bikes with and could keep it safely in the courtyard so that we could come and go as we pleased. We will definitely book this cottage again, great value for money!

Great Stay!!
We really enjoyed our stay here. Very clean and simply set up for all our needs. Bed's we're very comfortable and the whole cottage is eloquently decorated. Great location in the centre of Kirkby Stephen meaning it is only a short walk to one of the many local shops and surrounding countryside. Great location for walkers and people looking to relax. We will definitely be trying to rebook here in the future.

Amazing cottage
This quaint cottage situated in the heart of Kirkby Stephen is a real gem. Myself and my fiance stayed here. A family or group would also find this perfect with the cottage sleeping 6 comfortably. The rooms were very clean and facilities super, we especially loved the sauna. The walking/hiking trails are also a real highlight to our trip with easy access to all surrounding hills, finishing in the local friendly pub a very short walk away. We will be back again next year! Thank you.

Fabulous stay
We had a wonderful stay at Bayleaf back in February. Exceptionally clean and the decor is beautiful, this made our stay very relaxing and comfortable. We had absolutely everything we needed and the facilities were great! Location was also a bonus, right in middle of the charming town of Kirkby Stephen. Can?t wait to return next year.
