    “Outstanding Holiday Rental”
    We stayed as a group of 7 friends from 28th October to 4th November 2016. We all found this to be a comfortable and well-appointed holiday rental. The layout affords the opportunity for us all to be together (games, quizzes, breakfast etc.) but also having three lounge areas made it very flexible to use. The heating system kept the house lovely and warm although log-burning stoves are provided to supplement the heating if required. Clear instructions for the appliances were left available along ...

The property

This is an immaculately-presented, detached cottage, located in beautiful countryside in Reagill in a quiet and tranquil part of Cumbria, with easy access into the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District and the beautiful Eden Valley.

Comfortably appointed throughout to provide extremely spacious accommodation, this Reagill cottage has four bedrooms, two offering en-suite shower rooms.

There is a fantastic open plan living area with a woodburner, a well-equipped fitted kitchen with a central island, a dining area and French doors leading to the rear gardens and terrace.

The main sitting room has a lovely open fire and soft comfortable sofas to settle down into at the end of the day.

There is also a second sitting room which is great for playing games or to simply escape to with a good book.

Outside this Reagill cottage is a large rear garden with an orchard and a terrace where you are most likely to get the chance to see red squirrels and to observe the abundance of wildlife surrounding this lovely cottage.

With the colourful market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland less than 20 minutes' drive away, famous for its Horse Fair which takes place during early summer, this is a lovely area to visit on your self-catering holiday.

There is a host of delicious tea rooms and cafes serving lovely cakes along the banks of the River Eden.

Pooley Bridge at the northern tip of Ullswater Lake in the Lake District is less than 30 minutes' drive away, with beautiful surrounding mountains and scenery to admire.

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-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.
