About this listing
Our beautifully appointed apartment is above our vintage shop in the centre of Kirkby Stephen in the lovely Eden Valley. We have a large open space with fitted kitchen and dining area. The sitting area includes, if needed a quality sofa-bed. The bathroom has a luxury double walk-in shower, shaver point, basin and toilet. The attractive bedroom includes twin-beds, wardrobe, dresser etc. This is a charming space in a central location near to pubs and restaurants and is an ideal location for walking, visiting, historical sites etc. We are the halfway point on the coast to coast walk and Kirkby Stephen offers an ideal resting place. We offer a delicious continental style breakfast if required. Pet friendly by arrangement. This is a super place for railway enthusiasts, we are on the Settle to Carlisle line and Kirkby Stephen East station is open to the public and includes a small museum.
Other Things to Note
We do have a very nice travel cot at no extra charge.
We are a non-smoking house and would just ask guests to respect our lovely apartment and our peace and quiet as we live above. We also ask that guest take the door key with them at all times as the entrance door to the building is dead locked at 10.30pm also when the property is empty during the day.
Beautiful flat, very spacious, quirky with everything you need to make your stay go smoothly. Hosts very welcoming and accommodating. Good location for local amenities e.g. Cafe, bakery and supermarket. We really enjoyed our stay.
This is a really lovely flat, very well described. It is centrally located in Kirkby Stephen with everything that you might need just a short walk away. The reception could not have been warmer, with delicious home-baked bread and marmalade, tea and coffee and milk and even a basket of eggs. I would thoroughly recommend the flat - it is spacious and well-appointed. The sitting room catches the late afternoon sun and is a lovely place to sit and relax.

Thank you for a lovely stay .
Your warm welcome and fresh baked bread ! Your flat was perfect for us .
Great facilities cosy and interesting .
We were made very welcome at Paul and Penny's lovely apartment, and appreciated the fresh bread and eggs kindly left for us. Paul was very attentive to any enquiries or needs, and the flat makes the perfect base for exploring the quite beautiful and dramatic local scenery. It is truly a 'getaway' from the busyness of urban life!
Penny and Paul made us very welcome and the flat was exactly as described. They are a charming and friendly couple who have worked hard and thoughtfully at how best to create a lovely comfortable space for guests to use. They left a loaf of bread, home-made plum jam, some butter and six eggs for us on arrival which told us much about them and their attentiveness to our needs.
The flat is large and light looking down over the main street of Kirkby Stephen and we congratulated ourselves on finding somewhere so central and easy for our 8 night stay. The cooking facilities/fridge/shower etc are new and everything worked, especially the wifi and tv.
We were just two persons but the flat could easily take a family of four.
We had a really enjoyable stay at Rocke that Frock and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of spending time in the Cumbrian countryside from a very practical and homely base.
For us Australians, this was the epitome of the English experience. Such a beautiful apartment, spotlessly clean and so very, very pretty. We had all the mod cons and Paul and Penny could not have been more accommodating, warm, informative and just lovely! The location in the Lake District is fabulous, picturesque, with breathtaking views around every corner. We will never forget this stay and we feel that we have made some wonderful new friends!
