Kirkby Stephen is an active market town on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town is just 5 miles from the A66 and 10 miles from junction 38 of the M6 motorway and is well placed for Kendal, Penrith, Barnard Castle, 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 doctors surgery. There is still a weekly outdoor market and an agricultural auction mart.

The current owner runs a hair and beauty business on the ground and lower ground floors and lives above. This business has been very successfully run, and the owner is now looking to retire. She is quite prepared to assist with the handover. The business 'Enhance' offers a range of treatments, including hair care, massage and nail bar, in welcoming surroundings.

The commercial space is flexible and could be used for other business opportunities.

This is well maintained, separately metered and gas central heating, with lovely views over the town and churchyard.
