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, cafés, restaurants and pubs for every taste and budget.

Guests Comment

“The owners have clearly put a great deal of thought into the barn and the decor is fabulous. The bed is so comfy and the whole place is immaculate. The location is great, the views from the sitting area were lovely and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We really enjoyed our weekend and will recommend to friends.”
