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.

Wonderful relaxing stay
We stayed at Bayleaf for a long winter weekend. The property is finished to a very high standard and has everything you need - including a cot and high chair for our toddler. The sauna was such a treat, especially after a cold walk! The town itself is small but very quaint and friendly with plenty of cafes, shops and pubs to enjoy.

We had a lovely stay at Bay Leaf Cottage in Kirkby Stephen. The cottage was warm and comfortable - especially the beds. It is very well equipped and the second sitting room was a great idea. We used the sauna which was wonderful and very easy to use. The rainfall shower was a nice finish to the spa bathroom feel. There are lots of activities to do in and around the area. The cottage welcome pack provides very useful information and suggestions for things to do. The restaurants and pubs in Kirkby Stephen are very friendly. Will definitely stay there again.
