About the location


Penrith 14 miles.

The historic town of Appleby, set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley, is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. 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.

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.

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

We have stayed there before, it has since been up graded by new owners, do not think you could get much better great place to stay.

Mrs Teed, Coventry, August 2013

This is an exceptionally pleasant cottage, with pleasant and attentive hosts next door, in a lovely area of the country. I would recommend it to anyone and hope to return before long.
