    “Lovely Cottage Retreat”

    Having just returned from our weeks' break this wonderful property. Although the owners live nearby, the property feels really secluded. The Cottage is certainly not little, and is very spacious inside, our two Miniature Schnauzers had a great time playing in the hall and kitchen and running around the garden. The garden is not completely enclosed, but we did let the dogs out and they happily ran around the property and did not try to run away. There are cows and sheep in the adjacent field, but ...

    Having just returned from our weeks' break this wonderful property. Although the owners live nearby, the property feels really secluded. The Cottage is certainly not little, and is very spacious inside, our two Miniature Schnauzers had a great time playing in the hall and kitchen and running around the garden. The garden is not completely enclosed, but we did let the dogs out and they happily ran around the property and did not try to run away. There are cows and sheep in the adjacent field, but there is a fence on either side to stop any pets getting through. There is a both a family sized bathroom upstairs and a shower room downstairs. The kitchen is excellent and has everything you would require for a self catering holiday, e.g. fridge/freezer 50/50, microwave, electric oven, halogen hob and washing machine. The property has central heating and the temperature in each room can be controlled separately. We didn't need to use the heating or the wood burning stove, as the property was warm enough for us. The village is small, and although there are no shops, there are some nearby with a large Co-op in Kirkby Stephen and a smaller Co-op in Appleby. The Sandford Arms which is close by is lovely, we went there for Sunday lunch and it was very tasty. It is £12 for one course £14 for two courses and £16 for three courses. It is also dog friendly. What we loved the most is where the property is situated, it is in the Eden Valley, but is equidistantly placed between the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales and the Pennines. We will definitely visit again.

About the location

APPLEBY-IN-WESTMORLAND

Penrith 14 miles.

The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland lies in a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the Lake District Fells showing on the western horizon. Set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley and steeped in history, this is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Appleby is nestled between the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales, so guests can enjoy the contrasting scenery of these two National Parks, plus numerous walking and cycling opportunities as well as the fantastic leisure centre in the town. Appleby has a wonderful selection of quality independent shops, cafes and delicatessens selling locally produced food and crafts. The picturesque street of Boroughgate, with some interesting old buildings, is at the heart of the town and links the well-preserved Norman Castle with the fine medieval Church of St. Lawrence. Appleby is a major stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and still today many of the old steam trains wend their way along this line and over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. Visit Appleby in June and experience the colourful spectacle of the three hundred-year old Horse Fair. With the delightful Ullswater and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
