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.
