    • “The cottage is absolutely immaculate, with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. The only downside is that it is not within walking distance of a pub or even a shop.”

    • “My girlfriend and I stayed here for 7 nights in October. We were given a warm welcome and loved our stay. The cottage is very well maintained and offers everything you would need for a relaxing stay. Whilst the tight winding stair cases would be difficult for those less able, we thought it only added to the charm of the property. Facilities were excellent, full kitchen with everything you need, fire, big TV, lovely big bath, and lots of ideas for days out. Although the cottage is attached to the owners main house we were left to enjoy ourselves in complete privacy with a private garden and entrance. They were very helpful and approachable which definitely makes it a more enjoyable experience. Set in beautiful country side, the only slightly negative thing we can think of is maybe a little too secluded. Nearest pub (that we found) is driving distance. Will definitely recommended to friends and family and return sometime in the future.”

    • “We spent a week here as our last trip before our first baby arrived. It was a really lovely place to stay, romantic, relaxing and exactly what we needed. It was a great spot for exploring the Lake District but also for hunkering down and doing very little except eating Snap fish and chips (it made us both want a roll top bath in the bedroom at home!) The owners are welcoming and generous (it was my husband's birthday and they left us wine and chocolates to celebrate). Highly recommended.”

    • “We loved the cottage, the owners were very kind and helpful, their dog was wonderful Ollie our dog misses her. A perfect situation to get to all the lakes without staying in the middle of it all as it get a little crowded at times. The bath in the bedroom is very good for drinking wine in while watching tv. We will go again very soon we hope.”

    Mrs Johnson, Manchester, November 2015

    • “The Granary is a unique accommodation and deserves it's 4 tick status. A cottage in a super easy location for walking and photography and there was no sense that there was any limit to the places that we could do both. The design of The Granary is particularly interesting and staying there was like having accommodation straight out of "Grand Designs".”

About the location


Appleby-in-Westmorland 6 miles; Penrith 13 miles.

The attractive, unspoilt rural village of Maulds Meaburn in the Lyvennet Valley is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District, Eden Valley and the Yorkshire Dales. Hunter Davies described the village as "one of the most beautiful villages in the country". It is a quiet picturesque village in Cumbria not far from the Eden Valley and about six miles from Appleby-in-Westmorland. It forms part of the parish of Crosby Ravensworth and stands either side of Lyvennet Beck which flows from the south through Crosby Ravensworth and finally enters the River Eden near Temple Sowerby. Nearby Appleby sits at the heart of the lush Eden Valley, and is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Appleby is a major stop on the Settle-to-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain; still today, many of the old steam trains wend their way along this line and over the awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. Visit Appleby in June and experience the famous Horse Fair, the largest Romany gathering in Europe, enjoy a walk on the Pennine Way at Dufton, or explore one of the local cycle trails. With the delightful Pooley Bridge, Penrith and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
