“The Cottage is in a good location”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

The Cottage is in a good location, well decorated, maintained and spotlessly clean.
It well worth it for the price we paid, but there were a few minor issues
It was very cold in the evening, but we could not access the cupboard where the central heating was kept to turn it on.
We could not turn on the gas fire the ignition system seems to be broke.
Bedside lamps in master bedroom do not work, I tried replacing them with new bulbs but there seems to be an electrical fault.
We found one small bath towel and one hand towel for each guest insufficient for our of one week stay.
There was only one tea towel in the kitchen and one plastic bin liner also insufficient for one a week stay.
The key safe at the back door is very difficult to open if you are not used to this type
Over the years we have stayed in Kirkby Steven quite a lot and comparing them against the best in this price range, it is most definitely up there.
Apart from these (minor issues) it was the only thing stopped us giving it an excellent score
we had a fantastic week at Fettler's cottage
Thank you Shaun and Mary

“Exactly what we were looking for and beyond our expectations”
Reviewed May 11, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a very cosy cottage with everything we could ask for. It was very clean and well equipped for our stay in Kirkby Stephen.

It is well positioned to allow visitors to enjoy the town's facilities without the need to drive.

I would happily recommend this cottage as a comfortable and warm base to enjoy a break in a very friendly and welcoming Cumbrian town, and my wife and I hope to stay again in the future

“Absolutly fantastic”
Reviewed October 24, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

From the minute we arrived we have had a fantastic time, the cottage its self is really lovely ,and very well equipped , very cosy and has everything you need for a relaxing break, the rooms are decorated to a very high standard, everything is spotless and clean, the cottage is close to all the shops , bakers, butchers , local co-op and spar shop, you are surrounded with beautiful views and walks, and the Kirkby railway station is only a mile and a half walking distance from the cottage, we had lovely journey to Carlisle to visit the castle, we will definitely be returning next year and we can not wait, max the dog has enjoyed every minute too.

“Great week at Fettlers Cottage, Kirkby Stephen”
Reviewed October 19, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Had a great weeks holiday in this lovely cottage, spotlessly clean, cosy and comfortable, has everything you need. beds also really comfortable. Kirkby Stephen is a great place to base yourself. Also the cottage is 2 mins walk from all the facilities. We ate in the Kings Arms and also the Nateby inn in the next village, both very good value and lovely food. We also enjoyed various walks round the local countryside with our dog Herbie. We visited the cheese factory at Hawes, Kendal and Ambleside. We were also lucky enough to see the annual sheep sales at the Auction mart in Kirkby Stephen. Locals very friendly and a place I would recommend and also recommend Fettlers Cottage and we hope to return sometime in the future.
