The Upper Eden Valley around Kirkby Stephen is an unspoilt oasis situated between the busy Yorkshire Dales and the crowded Lake District National Parks. Some of our guests come to explore those adjacent tourist magnets yet seduced by the local countryside never actually get there! In fact we have had some visitors who never moved from the cottage! At Stouphill Gate all our guests can be assured of a warm friendly welcome and lots of peace & tranquility.
Stouphill Gate is a traditional old Cumbrian farmstead, and the holiday accommodation has been formed from the older parts of the property retaining much of the original character whilst benefiting from all of the modern conveniences. The owners live adjacent and are happy to assist guests in any way during their stay. All the holiday rooms enjoy spectacular views across the countryside. We can offer a two bedroom holiday cottage and we have two adjacent bed & breakfast rooms, one of which is suitable for the disabled. Please see the individual pages for each area of the accommodation.
We are pleased to announce that our visitors have recently recommended Stouphill Gate for inclusion in the new edition of the Hidden Places of The Lake District and Cumbria, see the Hidden Places page for more details. Please visit the 'visitors comments ' page to read what former guests have written about us.
