The Moss is a former Westmorland farmhouse with adjoining barns and outbuildings, the latter were sympathetically converted in the 1980s to create three lovely characterful self-catering holiday cottages. The present owners purchased the property in 2003 and over the years they have refurbished and improved the cottages including replacing bathrooms, kitchens etc. The main house/owners' accommodation has also been refurbished to a high standard, retaining much of the character.
The property is set in a delightful rural position midway between Tebay and Kirkby Stephen with stunning 360 degree views particularly towards the Howgill fells.
The Moss offers the opportunity to run a successful holiday lettings business with a regular income, repeat business and all future bookings. The cottages come fully furnished and equipped. Currently the letting agent is holidaycottages.co.uk and the cottages can be viewed on their website. The current owners run it as a life style business and there is ample opportunity to further develop the business, if desired.
The Moss lies at the foot of the Howgill Fells, close to the source of the River Lune and is surrounded by delightful countryside. It now lies within the new boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and The Lake District National Park can be reached within an hour. The Moss occupies a delightful rural location and yet has easy access to the M6 at Tebay (approx. 4 miles) and the popular market town of Kirkby Stephen lies 6 miles to the north. Kirkby Stephen provides an excellent range of every day facilities including a supermarket, shops, hotel and public houses, primary and secondary schools and many sports clubs. There is a station on the historic Settle - Carlisle railway line. Kendal, Lancaster, Penrith and Carlisle are within commuting distance.
Mains water and electricity. Private drainage. LPG (via the Rayburn) providing central heating and domestic hot water to the house. The three cottages have night storage heaters. Please note - the mention of any appliances and/or services within these particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.
