Guest Reviews


    • “Best self catering accommodation we have stayed in over 20 years by a mile.”

    Mr Rodgers, Ipswich, September 2014

    • “A fabulous area and beautiful scenery. The owners of the property had thought of everything and the garden is lovely to relax in.”

    Mrs Murray, Coventry, August 2014

    • “The place was even nicer than described; a really cosy, pleasant and relaxing cottage to spend a week in and one I cannot wait to go back to one day. The garden - though not used much due to the weather - was lovely and the owners seem to have gone to every effort with it and with the cottage to make sure your time there is as nice as can be. Looking through the visitor's book it seems our opinions of the place were shared by everyone who had stayed previously.”

    Mr Sambrook, Southampton, August 2014

    • “Loved the garden, welcoming hosts, fresh flowers in the sitting room, food and milk.good parking well off the road.”

    Mr Parratt, Farnham, July 2014

    • “Very well equipped cottage, good location and good standard throughout.”

    Mr Hood, Hessle, March 2014

    • “We had a lovely stay at Oak cottage. The owners were very welcoming and left us a much appreciated welcome pack of cakes, tea, milk etc and some flowers. The cottage was very warm and cosy and made a restful break.”

    Mrs Kenny, Preston, December 2013

    • “A warm welcome from the owners. A cosy retreat before a very hectic Christmas. Oak Cottage is a real home from home. Complete chill-out with great walks from the door. A lovely meal out at the Ashiana in Bridge Street.”

    Mrs Fenner, Prenton, December 2013

    • “The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. Lovely village and places to visit.”

    Mrs Hyam, Bathgate, November 2013

About the location


Penrith 14 miles.

The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland lies in a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the Pennine range 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. 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 atmosphere 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.
