Kirkby Stephen is a quaint and picturesque town in the Upper Eden Valley, close to both the beautiful Lake District National Park in Cumbria and the sprawling Yorkshire countryside.

The traditional market town has historic buildings, cobbled yards and streets lined with a variety of local shops and the beautiful town centre is protected by a conservation status. The town also has a vibrant community ethos, with local pride evident in all of the well kept facilities.

Kirkby Stephen’s appeal lies in the vast amounts of lush green open space, wild uplands and lengthy and intriguing history which can be experienced at the castles and heritage sites nearby. The town has the benefit of feeling remote and secluded but is still close enough to the larger towns and cities such as Penrith, Kendal and Carlisle.
