Crackenthorpe Holiday Cottages
'Crackenthorpe' - great name isn't it. But don't be fooled, this village is no gimmick. With a long history that dates to Roman times, as well as a superb location within a stone's throw of the Lake District, Crackenthorpe is the perfect destination for a Cumbrian cottage break.
Tucked away in lush countryside near the ancient town of Appleby-in-Westmorland, Crackenthorpe has retained a timeless charm. Whitewashed cottages, stone-built houses and emerald grazing meadows give Crackenthorpe a rural appeal, one that's sure to draw couples, families and adventurers alike.
Though the village lacks amenities, the small and quite beautiful town of Appleby-in-Westmorland is just a couple of miles down the road, so you'll have somewhere to stock up on supplies or enjoy an evening out during your Crackenthorpe cottage holiday. Plus, the village is only ten or so miles away from Penrith, making fascinating daytrips a breeze!
