  • "This was our second stay at this marvellous property."

    We enjoyed it very much. We hope to return in the new year. There are a few minor issues with maintenance in that the bulb in the fridge doesn’t work. The light in the bedside lamp in the second bedroom is useless. Otherwise a very comfortable place. We found it to be most convenient for our needs.

    Nicely situated in a quiet cul-de-sac. Lots of tvs even in the bathroom. Short ride to Appleby and Penrith for shopping and browsing. Lowther Castle was a nice trip out but not cheap. The village pub serves good food and there are several pubs a short drive away that also serve good food. All in all a very pleasant experience.

    Very well equipped - even had Netflix! Secluded rear garden with patio furniture. Everyone in the neighbourhood seemed to know the owners - even in Pooley Bridge ( one of the ladies in the shop there lives next door to them!) Only one small thing, which is easily remedied - there is a street light right outside the front bedroom window which shines all night and,even with blinds closed and curtains drawn, made the bedroom very light and woke us several times the first night until we managed to black it out. Maybe thicker,blackout curtains would stop the problem. It may not bother some people but we are used to a dark bedroom. A great stay.

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. With the delightful Ullswater and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
