“Gorgeous”
Reviewed January 23, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

When I arrived there was bread waiting on the table with milk butter and eggs. Very quirky apartment with everything you need including toiletries
Had a lovely warm welcome from the owners who live upstairs
The only downside I would say is that you can hear everything from upstairs.
Other than that I would definitely stay here again it was lovely and pet friendly!
Thanks again

Thanks Julie for all your kind comments and I'm very sorry if you were disturbed in any way. There were more people in the house than usual as you arrived the day before my Mothers funeral and we had gathered to remember her long life. I do hope you will visit us again sometime. Regards, Penny.

We had a fantastic three night stay here with our two house cats, Penny and Paul greeted us with a warm and friendly welcome including homemade bread, and jam, which was amazing by the way. The apartment is just brilliant and a great base to explore the stunning countryside.

“Simply Superb!”
Reviewed January 5, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The location is perfect, on the Main Street in the lovely town of Kirkby Stephen. Beautiful walks are on the doorstep.

The apartment was just gorgeous and absolutely spotless. Penny, Paul (and not forgetting Bertie) were all so welcoming and there was such thoughtful attention to detail, which made us feel like very special guests. Not least Penny's home made bread and lovely flowers (quite something at this time of year).

The beds were very comfortable and the apartment lovely and warm. We had a really wonderful two day stay.

Thank you Penny, Paul and Bertie

“Fabulous, would certainly stay again!”
Reviewed June 19, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Loved my stay here- fresh bread, eggs, coffee, tea, milk, butter all provided on arrival which was a really nice touch. Fresh flowers as well. My dog was also free of charge- again a nice touch!

The whole apartment was kitted out beautifully with lots of things to admire and look at. Can't recommend this place enough!

“Lovely”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed here for three nights with our two dogs and we were all very comfortable and felt at home.
The welcome pack of home made bread and jam and eggs, butter and milk. Tea and coffee was fantastic and meant we could just unpack and stick the kettle on.
Cooper and Angus made friends with Bertie the families dog and didn't mind him wandering in to visit them.
There's lots of lovely little vintage nic nacs in the apartment which are a fantastic feature.
