Property Details

The Space
Moorland Cottage is a traditional, two-storey property located just off the high street in Kirkby Stephen. With all local amenities right on your doorstep, the holiday home has everything you could want for a stay in the area, whether that be visiting the Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District National Park.

In the living room you’ll find a comfy sofa which provides that home-from-home feeling you just can’t get in a hotel. Kick off your shoes and relax. From the lounge window, you have a view across the quiet road to the traditional Cumbrian houses opposite. Turn on the flat-screen Smart TV and you’ll have a wide selection of steaming apps to choose from.

Fancy something to eat, or maybe a brew? The shaker kitchen can be found next door to the living space, so there isn’t far to go when you need to grab a snack or prepare a meal. Appliances aplenty are found here, including a dishwasher as nobody needs to be washing up during their holiday!

From the kitchen, there’s direct access to the sought-after garden space at the rear of the property. Here you can soak up the peace and quiet, enjoy a morning coffee or a late afternoon glass of something bubbly.

When you need to get ready to go out or head off to bed, the property's modern bathroom suite has a spacious bathtub with overhead shower, plus a vanity unit was basin and WC.

When sleep calls, both bedrooms offer luxuriously relaxing surroundings, one with a king-size bed and one with twin singles.
