  • "Superb accommodation in a perfect location."

    The property was spotless, very well maintained and had everything and more that you could possibly think of and need. The attention to detail is second to none and having super comfy beds was such a bonus. Wouldn't hesitate to rebook when we return to the Lake District.

Lovely touches like the homemade cupcakes, bottle of wine and even treats for our dog! Definitely a 5* property in a beautiful part of the world. We will return and would highly recommend!

  • "A beautiful cottage in a great location."

    The cottage is beautifully kept by the host Lisa. Everything you need has been provided, there are lovely treats for both the human and dog guests and it is an extremely comfortable place to stay. The village is lovely and central to lots of locations to walk and visit. It is also very handy having a pub next door where they serve good food in the evening! We had a great week staying here and would definitely recommend.

  • "The property was outstanding, the photos did not do Garth End justice."

    The property was as listed and of the highest standard, in a nice, peaceful village location. Lovely pub right next door too where we were made to feel very welcome. The welcome pack and personalised touches provided by the property owner were excellent and certainly helped us feel settled immediately. Excellently located within 45 / 60 mins of most tourist attractions around the lakes. The best time was had and we definitely look forward to being repeat visitors to Garth End in the future. Kind regards, The Vickers Family.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. You were the perfect guests and are welcome back anytime! Property Owner

    We stayed for a week for my 50th birthday! The house has everything you need! We gathered around the island while each couple took it in turns to cook! We played games! You don’t feel like your on top of each other as you have the main lounge with the wood burner (you can buy logs over the road) or you have the snug which is so comfy! The house is immaculate, we did not want to leave!

  • "We loved the cottage and felt that lots of attention to detail was provided, it was lovely and clean, had great utensils and equipment and extras like candles and treats for us and our pets."

    Part of what sold the property to us was the fact that it was advertised as having a pub next door. Unfortunately the pub was closed during our week stay. We’d planned to eat breakfast here and have dinner there too. It did have an impact because we had to travel in two / three vehicles to get food including takeaways and it was my 50th birthday celebration. I appreciate we hired the cottage not the pub, but it was advertised with a pub next door. Overall we still had a great time, the pub would have made it fantastic!!

    A welcome pack for our party including the dog was a lovely touch. The accommodation included a wide range of well considered items such as blankets for use outside or on the sofas, picnic equipment and a range of candle holders and tableware that made the house feel like a home. Location was ideal for exploring the lakes and local towns. The pub next door provides excellent meals to eat in or take back to the cottage. Highly recommended. A big ‘Thankyou’ to the owner for sharing her house with us and making our holiday possible.

    We found it to be very conveniently located for touring the Lake District, Pennines, Hadrian's Wall, and much more. The cottage is extremely comfortable with high end decor, with ample space for a family or several couples. We particularly enjoyed the two different reception rooms on the ground floor and the en-suite bathrooms upstairs. Beds and furnishings are extremely comfortable. Lisa was a very kind, conscientious, and responsive host. We really appreciated all her personal touches. We felt very welcome and would not hesitate to return to this cottage!

It was well situated for visiting Lakes or dining around in the multitude of great pubs nearby. A special mention to the New Crown Inn just next door, fabulous food and great service.

    It is well situated in a small village next to a pub where the landlord is very welcoming. The pub is the village local serving good food and drinks and its proximity is convenient but causes no disturbance. The cottage owner, Lisa, is very attentive and has thought of just about everything you could possibly need for a lovely holiday. This property is probably one of the best that we have ever stayed in, a full 5 star experience.

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.
