Coach House Cottage (Church Brough)
Situated just below St Michael’s Church and Brough Castle in the centre of Church Brough village, Coach House Cottage is an incredible find for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. This character property is steeped in history spanning centuries and offers comfortable accommodation for a couple or individual. Exposed wooden beams and lintels, deep stone window sills and distinctive curved walls create a delightful and unique feel.
Coach House Cottage is set in an idyllic location adjacent to the owner’s converted stables. Although the exact age of the rectory site is unknown, it is said to date back to the 1100s and was the home of the church rector. The property sits just below Brough Castle which is certainly worthy of a visit. Just a stone’s throw from the property is a delightful popular tea room and ice cream parlour perfect for a little treat. Walking opportunities abound, with Lady Anne Clifford’s Way and the Pennine Journey both passing by the cottage.
The property benefits from its fabulous position on the edge of the Lake District National Park, The Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Eden Valley offers convenient access from the M6 motorway while retaining a remote, rural feel, and its dark skies make stargazing a real joy. If sightseeing is what you’re looking for, you won’t be disappointed. The beautiful lake of Ullswater is only a 30 minutes drive to the west and offers endless opportunities to explore. Likewise, a short drive south takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and, of course, Hadrian’s Wall country is to the north, offering an excellent opportunity to discover glimpses of the mighty Roman empire.
