The pretty, rural village of Soulby quietly rests near the confluence of the River Eden and Smardale Beck, just over two miles from Kirkby Stephen. Something of a sleepy backwater, it is surrounded by traditional farm meadows and picturesque pastures and fells. The traditional market town of Kirkby Stephen, once home to cotton mills and a large manufacturer of shoes and woollen hats today hosts a variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs for every taste and budget. Enjoy many excellent walks and cycle routes nearby, explore the magnificent Howgill Fells or visit the Settle to Carlisle railway line. A superb location with the whole of the mystical Lake District National Park and the stunning Yorkshire Dales at your fingertips.
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
