Appleby-in-Westmorland, Cumbria & The Lake District
A delightful, stone-built, single-storey cottage, over 200 years old, in the old town of Appleby-in-Westmorland, just a few minutes’ walk from all its amenities and also the old Norman castle. Offering traditional, warm and cosy accommodation, this comfortable Appleby cottage has a super king-size double in the bedroom, though this can be made into two single beds if required, meaning Owl Cottage is just as suited to friends as it is to couples. The window in the sitting room overlooks the hustle and bustle of Appleby, so you really feel you are at the heart of this thriving Cumbrian town. There is a welcoming sitting room in this Appleby cottage, a compact but well-equipped kitchen, and just outside the cottage is a communal green with a bench, just right for a cuppa on a sunny evening. This lovely Appleby cottage is an ideal base for enjoying the beauty of the surrounding National Parks, and there are some interesting walks nearby heading out into the open countryside. Alternatively, stay around the town itself and explore the castle, medieval church, shops and eateries.

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.
