Mews Cottage, 2 Royal Arcade is an attractive character cottage set in a pretty cobbled courtyard (a former stable yard) in the centre of Kirkby Stephen.

Kirkby Stephen is an active market town just beyond the northern periphery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town is just ten miles from junction 38 of the M6 motorway and is well placed for Kendal, Penrith, Appleby and the Lake District. The scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway is on the doorstep and the Coast to Coast footpath runs through. Kirkby Stephen has highly regarded primary and grammar schools as well as a good range of shops, restaurants & pubs, church & chapel and doctor's surgery. There is still a weekly outdoor market and an agricultural auction mart.

The property dates back to the18th Century and retains a wealth of original character features with beams, stone walls and wooden lintels.

The property is deceptively bright and spacious, facing South so enjoying the sun most of the day. It benefits from double glazing throughout and gas central heating.

On the ground floor is an open plan living space, it has a spacious sitting room with featured arched window and a modern dining kitchen with integrated applicances. There is also a small, rear hall and ground floor WC.

Upstairs on the first floor are two, good size double bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room. On the second floor is a double attic bedroom with steps up to a pleasant reading space and access in to a useful storeroom housing the gas fired boiler and water tank.

Outside, to the front of the cottage is a pleasant cobbled courtyard (not owned by the property). Pedestrian access is from the main street and there is ample parking nearby.

2 Royal Arcade is currently used a second home, the property had a complete refurb around 15 years ago. This cottage would be an ideal retirement, holiday or investment property.
