  • Paul

    “The welcome we received was warm and friendly, and first impressions of the accommodation were excellent.”

    The accommodation was ideal for a family gathering of 6 adults and 2 children. The location was in a very quite and peaceful area, and it was easy to get out to other areas. All in all, we had a fantastic family holiday.

The property

Brackenber Lodge rests down a quiet private lane, attached to Brackenber Hall.

A country-style lodge tucked away near the market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland, it’s perfect for family and friends looking for a well-deserved break.

Inside is the open-plan living room waits to give you a warm welcome, hosting a set of light blue sofas crowded round a brightly coloured rug.

The oak furniture adds a homely feel, finishing the lounge in style.

Adjacent to this is a dining area tucked under the stairs.

Step down over quarry tiles to the kitchen, which is fully equipped with a second dining area complete with fitted benches and china tea cups on the far wall.

Catch your rest in the twin room on the ground floor, with a lovely outlook of green trees.

Upstairs is a double, single and family room resting in the eaves, enhanced by Velux skylights.

Head out into the garden area to be greeted by wisteria cascading along a trellis, trees full of red berries, bird feeders and horses grazing in the field behind.

A covered porch area is ideal for sitting out with a glass of wine, reminiscing over the day's adventures.

The small hamlet of Brackenber is on the fringes of open fields and Appleby Golf Course.

Nearby is the village of Brough with pubs, tea rooms and the ruins of Brough Castle.

Set in the heart of Eden Valley, steeped in history, Appleby is perfect for touring the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North Pennines AONB.

A peaceful retreat in the heart of walking country.

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.
