    “Great Stay”
    This is the first time we go to a cottage and I must admit it is a nice relaxing experience. The lady owner is very nice even though we didn't meet her but the proprety was very clean and she is well organised. We found full guides to the area left there which made our visit easy ...
    This is the first time we go to a cottage and I must admit it is a nice relaxing experience. The lady owner is very nice even though we didn't meet her but the proprety was very clean and she is well organised. We found full guides to the area left there which made our visit easy. The cottage itself is very nicely decorated and makes your stay comfy and relaxing. The river view is an added value to the proprety. Even though there is some noise from the main road but it didn't bother us. We highly recommend this cottage and will book again there for sure.

The property

This attractive, sandstone, semi-detached cottage, dating back to 1616, has been awarded an Appleby-in-Westmorland Society Award for outstanding restoration and sits within yards of the beautiful River Eden, which loops around Cumbria’s ancient market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland.

This delightful Appleby cottage is attached to the owners’ home and offers superb holiday accommodation, ideally positioned for exploring the Lakeland Fells, with miles of pathways to discover, and within walking distance of the town’s excellent amenities.

This lovely cottage has been thoughtfully presented with lots of individual touches and original character features to provide a charming romantic getaway.

The spacious open plan living area has a stunning, double height ceiling with original beams reaching high into the apex of the room, along with a cosy gas stove, a dining area and a kitchen, whilst the elegant, gallery-style bedroom has delightful views across to the River Eden.

Outside this Appleby-in-Westmorland cottage is a small sitting area, whilst the charming shops, pubs and restaurants of the town can all be found within just a few minutes’ walk, so you have everything you need to enjoy a night in or out of this wonderful cottage.

Many delightful riverside walks can commence opposite this Appleby cottage, where local residents include friendly ducks and even the elusive, early-riser otters, which can often be sighted at daybreak if you’re lucky!

Spend the day wandering the surrounding fells and woodlands or why not embark on a train journey from the train station, just a five minute walk from the property, to Settle, which passes through beautiful Yorkshire countryside before crossing the famous Ribblehead Viaduct, or head west to find the shores of Ullswater in the stunning Lake District?

This charming Appleby cottage makes an ideal base for exploring Cumbria's sublime, surrounding scenery, at any time of the year.

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.
