About this Holiday Cottage

With all the accommodation laid out over one floor, this property has been built to reduce its carbon emissions whilst still offering the class and hospitality you would expect from a well-furnished holiday cottage. As well as boasting features, such as the original beams, the cottage uses geothermal heating to warm the floors during the colder months. Central heating heats the rest of the property, meaning you can enjoy all that the region has to offer even in the winter. During the summer, there is a patio and courtyard for evening barbecues and to simply relax in. With three bedrooms, this tranquil retreat can sleep groups of up to eight people.

Around and About

Situated on the banks of the longest river in Cumbria, the appropriately named River Eden, Soulby is a picturesque hamlet comprising of a few traditional cottages surrounded by rolling countryside. Just two miles away you will find Kirkby Stephen, a small town in the Upper Eden Valley that was formerly in the old county of Westmorland, now Cumbria. This is an area of Cumbria much less well-known than the Lake District, but equally appealing. A traditional market town comprising of historic buildings, cobbled yards, quaint corners and interesting shops, Kirkby Stephen has a station on the famous scenic Settle/Carlisle line and is an ideal centre from which to travel the line. The surrounding area boasts many sites of historic interest including parish churches and castles such as Brougham, Brough, Pendragon and Lammerside.

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.
