  • “Very convieniently situated 2 minutes walk ftom the town.”

    Cleanliness was of the highest standard and the cottage was well equipped and comfortable. Off road parking was important as there are parking restrictions in Doomgate. Good walks from the property particularly along the Rive Eden. Good local shops and plenty of pubs and eateries. Owners live next door and were always on hand if needed without being intrusive. Would gladly use Blacksmith's cottage again.

The property

This attractive terraced cottage, a former blacksmith’s cottage is situated on a quiet lane, just a short walk from the centre of the ancient market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland.

This delightful old cottage provides an ideal base for exploring the Lakeland fells, with miles of pathways to discover, and with the added benefit of all the town’s excellent amenities on the doorstep.

Warm and cosy throughout, this charming cottage is most welcoming with a well laid-out sitting room with original ceiling beam, a leather suite and access through to a well-equipped kitchen/diner.

The kitchen then leads out to a raised patio area and above that is a very pretty garden; a tranquil and elegant spot to soak up the sun, read a good book and enjoy your favourite tipple.

The two bedrooms are pleasantly furnished and styled and a good-sized bathroom ensures that guests have all they could ask for in this lovely Lakeland cottage.

This holiday home is a short walk to the main high street, Boroughgate, which is described as being one of the finest in England, and it’s also only a short walk to the river where you can walk past the cricket ground and out along the river bank where friendly ducks and even an occasional elusive otter can be sighted.

Spend time exploring the magnificent countryside or take a trip on the famous Settle-Carlisle railway line and visit the likes of Settle and Skipton to take in the Yorkshire countryside before crossing the famous Ribblehead Viaduct.

To the west of Appleby is the Lake District whose northern and central lakes are within easy reach, and to the east lie the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

With the Yorkshire Dales, Hadrian's Wall and the Scottish Borders all within easy reach makes any holiday in this wonderful area a memorable one.

About the location

APPLEBY-IN-WESTMORLAND

Penrith 14 miles.

The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland lies in a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the Lake District Fells showing on the western horizon. Set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley and steeped in history, this is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Appleby is nestled between the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales, so guests can enjoy the contrasting scenery of these two National Parks, plus numerous walking and cycling opportunities as well as the fantastic leisure centre in the town. Appleby has a wonderful selection of quality independent shops, cafes and delicatessens selling locally produced food and crafts. 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. With the delightful Ullswater and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
