This is an excellent location that has something for the whole family.

It was a lovely place to stay and in a good location - would highly recommend it.

We particularly liked the location of the property, which was close to shops, pubs and restaurants. The owner was extremely helpful and we could not have had a better stay.

We had a great holiday, good weather and a choice of walking probably unchallenged in its variety ie hills over 2000ft to pastoral river walks include a lot of history with geology and natural history and what more can a walker want? The cottage was very comfortable and the splendid garden private, it was the perfect place for us. Kirkby Stephen is a really understated town and in its own way has just about everything for everybody. We found the pubs friendly and good value, there are plentiful dining opportunities. We are experienced fell walkers and to have The Howgills and Pennines Range on your doorstep along with so many local hills and The Dales only a short drive away is fantastic. The owners live within the grounds and were friendly and helpful, the garden is private and beautiful. Parking is next to the entrance with plenty of room and yards from the main road and yet so quiet.

An excellent home away from home. Close to all amenities and for all the activities undertaken (walking, cycling, eating out).

The whole package really. The cottage was set in the most beautiful gardens. The fixtures and fittings were all of the highest quality and every attempt had been made to ensure the we had everything we could need. We would unreservedly recommend the accommodation.

Went out everyday touring and it was so nice to come back to this fabulous accommodation. Kirkby Stephen was a great base and we visited The Lake District, Hadrians Wall and Durham etc. We loved this part of the country.

Beautiful home set in a glorious garden. We even saw a Heron in the garden pond outside one of the bedrooms on two occasions. Ideal location to explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. The photographs do not do the home justice as it is much larger than expected. The only thing we least liked was having to carry our cases up the steps but its only on the first and last day so not a big problem.

Excellent accommodation in area of natural beauty. Good activities and sights close to Kirkby Stephen and Lake District close enough for a day activity there if you want it. Accommodation was clean,warm and well-equipped.

What an excellent spot to enjoy the area in and around Kirkby Stephen. Manor Lodge was easy to find, provided excellent facilities overall and was a very brief walk to shops and restaurants. A private, off-road parking space next to the lodge was a good start; a place to store four bikes under a wooden walkway was helpful and a first view of the lodge when opening the door was like a home from home! There was a well-equipped kitchen, a clean bathroom and two clean bedrooms; all very homely. It took less than five minutes to walk to any shop or restaurant (and there was a variety of dining opportunities in the main street) and we set off from the lodge on three major walks and two cycle rides with map in hand - easy! A day trip to Carlisle on the Settle to Carlisle Railway was great too. The whole family would recommend this rental to anyone wanting to visit the area.

Kirkby Stephen is a very quiet quaint little village. The lodge is perfect for a cosy getaway, absolutely spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything you would need for your stay. I would definitely visit this place again.

We stayed in Kirkby Stephne for a week. We travelled with car. The cottage was clean and had a good standard. It was situated closed to the Town centre. Just 5 minutes walk to pubs and resturants. The cottage is small, and maximum 4 person. On the down side: one bathroom but that was ok for us, just beeing two person. No wifi, but you can live without internet for a week. The pub "Black Bull" in Town centre has free wifi - and good ale and food! The purpose for us was golf, and there is a lot of courses closed to Kirkby Stephens. I recommend Appleby golf course.
