    The owners Jan,John & Ollie ( their Springer Spaniel ) were very approachable & friendly checking in with us daily to see if we needed anything. Beds & sofas were comfy, the Lodge was spotless & warm and well equipped with almost everything you would need. A definite home from home even down to board games to play & books to read. I think Holly Lodge guests would benefit from a patio table & chairs outside the back door on the paved area, although there were wooden chairs & 2 wicker chairs in the summer house that we used but obviously they needed to remain there in case of rain. Holly Lodge’s interior is ideal for somebody who uses a wheelchair & is staying there with an able bodied person. We especially admired the kitchen work surface containing the sink and hob as it could be lowered so accessible if your sat in a wheelchair and the same applied to the sink in the bathroom.

The property

Holly Lodge is a charming, cosy retreat on the edge of the historic market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland in the Eden Valley district of Cumbria.

This charming cottage is a perfect base for families, friends or couples to get away together.

The cottage forms part of The Hollies, once a gentlemen's residence.

It was built as a museum to house the owner's hunting trophies gained during his time as an army officer returning from the Zulu War and to accommodate his billiard table!

Built around 1895, some of the original Scots Pine cladding is still intact.

Inside this delightful cottage there is a ground floor super king-size double bedroom and a family bathroom with a separate wet room shower with shower chair.

On the first floor there's a king-size double bedroom, a bedroom with three single beds and a shower room.

The cottage also has a well-equipped kitchen with fully accessible height-adjustable work surfaces, and a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburner, so you can sit back and unwind after a busy day out.

The ground floor of this property has been designed with wheelchair users in mind and there is level, paved access to the back door.

There is a private patio with furniture where you can relax and enjoy a refreshing drink before exploring the beautiful garden, which extends to around three acres, and is a heady mixture of wild flowers and woodland, and has superb views of the North Pennines.

The amenities in Appleby-in-Westmorland are on the doorstep and include pubs, cafes, restaurants and many other attractions.

This delightful cottage is close to open countryside and is perfect for walkers and hikers.

This dog-friendly cottage offers accommodation to suit everyone and walkers and cyclists will be in their element with The Pennine Way, Pennine Hills, two National Cycle Trails (68 and 71) and secure bike storage.

There's also the long-distance footpaths of The Dales Highway, Lady Anne's Way, and Wainwright's Pennine Journey leading to Appleby.

The Settle-Carlisle Railway runs through Appleby and the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales are an easy drive.

A lovely country retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

About the location


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. Visit Appleby in June and experience the colourful spectacle 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.
