Glebe Cottage is a very deceptively spacious property set in a quiet location on the edge of the village.

The village has the historic Brough Castle, St Michael’s Church, a primary school and is within easy walking distance of Brough, which has a village shop, outreach post office, an hotel and public house. Lying just four miles from the popular market town of Kirkby Stephen which itself has a variety of day-to-day amenities including supermarket, general shops, banks, hotels, public houses, restaurants, primary and secondary schools and various sporting facilities. Brough is also close to the A66 for Scotch Corner (A1[M]) and Penrith (M6), the Lakes and Carlisle and to the south via Kirkby Stephen to Tebay (M6) for Kendal and Lancaster.

The property is located down a quiet lane, behind the Church and has extensive, panoramic views. Glebe Cottage formed part of the old vicarage and offers a wealth of character features.

The accommodation is over four floors, on the ground floor is a garden room which is currently used as a utility room but would also make a great gym, sun room or games room. On the ground floor is a lounge and kitchen/diner. Upstairs, on the first floor are two large double bedrooms, one with an ensuite and a house bathroom. There are a further two bedrooms and shower room on the second floor with beautiful exposed roof timbers.

Glebe Cottage has been used a second property and is in good order/ The property had a new roof in 2009 and new windows in were installed in 2012, and also benefits from oil central heating.

To the rear are extensive gardens with long distant views over open fields to the fells. There is a lovely suntrap patio which leads down to a tiered lawn with a summer house.
Ample parking for two to three vehicles to the front.

Glebe Cottage is a perfect family or holiday home.
