“Very thoughtfully prepared cottage.”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Cottage is very clean and well prepared. Fresh flowers in the bedroom are a lovely welcoming touch as are the Prosecco and chocolates and the milk for a welcome cuppa on arrival. Even being situated very close to a surprisingly busy road did not deter from our enjoyment of the property as we slept through the noise most of the time. All you need is on the doorstep, great little tearoom with lovely cakes, pubs and restaurants providing good food, plenty of walks off the beaten track and good proximity to the lakes.

“Comfortable Stay In Kirby Stephen”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We chose location, location, location due to meeting friends in area. We enjoyed our stay the apartment had great views onto the market square and beyond onto the hills. They had all the facilities including washing machine that a stay required. It was tastefully decorated and had a quirky swing chair that was enjoyed by friends who visited and by my partner. The location was convenient for The lakes and Yorkshire Moors. The town itself had enjoyable scenic walks. The Appleby Horse Fair was coming up and we saw the horses and carriages of the traveller community on route to Appleby. With the Appleby fair upcoming the nights were becoming more noisy. The owner had produced a short brochure of local amenities, restaurants and how to use the central heating system. The only down side was the initial set of stairs that were quite steep and narrow. All in all we thoroughly liked our stay and would recommend to couples.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

What a gorgeous little find! My boyfriend and I have just returned from a weekend away. We literally can't fault this place! It's beautifully decorated to a high standard with lots of lovely touches such as the high quality bed and bath sheets, Denby crockery and the prosecco and chocolates upon arrival. We wanted a weekend of relaxation and this was perfect! We can't wait to return!

“Lovely apartment, great location”

What a find! A lovely clean and tidy apartment, with everything we needed for a very comfortable week. Ideal location between the Lakes and the Dales. I sleep like a log so it wasn't a problem for me, but the roadside location may be rather noisy for some as the traffic is quite busy early in the morning - the plus side is that the bus stop is right outside too! Flowers, fizz and milk on arrival were a nice touch - thank you Nigel. We'll be back - soon we hope!

Little gem. Modern, simple life especially, white furnishings, fresh and very clean. Located on the busy Market Square, great if you like to watch the world go by whilst relaxing in comfort. First floor beautiful double bedroom and bathroom with Jacuzzi (lovely end to a day). Plus realistic big bath sheets (pet hate if mine is tiny towels!) Upper floor open plan living and kitchen. Kitchen extremely well equipped with full size fridge freezer too. Little essentials like washing up liquid, soaps, cling film, foil etc all included. Decent sized TV with freeview and DVD s. Lovely comfy sofa to snuggle on. Plus quirky swinging chair. Loved our stay, I really didn't want to come back to real life! Highly recommended for a romantic getaway.
