This old, stone barn, surrounded by 20 acres of unspoilt pasture land, with the owner's living next door, dates back to the mid 1800s, and has been lovingly converted into a holiday home, combining charm and rustic features alongside all the contemporary comforts and amenities. Entering at ground floor level, there is a spacious hallway with underfloor heating, and plenty of room for coats and muddy boots. There are two beautifully presented bedrooms, both of which have flatscreen TVs, as well as a spacious wet room. An oak and glass staircase leads up to the first floor where you will find the light and airy open plan living space. At one end of the room is a well-equipped kitchen and dining area, and at the other end is a welcoming living area with plenty of comfy seating and a cosy wood burner, perfect for those cooler evenings. Outside there is an enclosed patio with table, chairs and barbecue - perfect for al fresco dining.
Lying close to the foot of the Howgill Fells, Brow View Cottage is surrounded by open countryside, and there are plenty of walking and cycling routes direct from the front door.

A wider range of amenities can be found in the nearby market town of Kirkby Stephen, including independent shops, cafes and pubs, as well as a couple of supermarkets and a tourist/visitor centre.
