Having recently undergone major refurbishments, 1 Kirkbeck now benefits from a host of mod cons yet manages to maintain its original and quirky cottage charm. A cosy & romantic hideaway, the presence of quality is apparent throughout thanks to the owners Tracy & Mike, who have lavished much care and attention on its restoration.
One of the most outstanding features this property has to offer is the delightful beck side patio and garden to the front of the property, a haven, perfect for sitting out, enjoying the day's sun and admiring the fantastic surroundings.
In essence a perfect retreat made for couples and small families.

Only the smaller single bedroom overlooks this development with master bedroom looking towards the beck and garden. No construction traffic will travel past the front of the house. We are advised that these works will have a minimal impact on the enjoyment of the property.
On entering the front door guests are welcomed into a bright and light open plan living area comprising sitting & dining area and Quaker style kitchen.
The comfortable sitting room benefits from leather sofas, original ceiling beams, wood burning stove, TV & DVD. The perfect place to relax with a glass of wine or good book.
The light & airy kitchen area is modern in design and equipped with electric oven & gas hob, fridge, microwave, dishwasher & washer/dryer. There's also an under stairs utility room with freezer & washer/dryer.
