    “Honest Review - Pros & Cons”

    We visited during Christmas period and had a positive experience. ...

    We visited during Christmas period and had a positive experience. Hopefully the below should help you make an educated decision as I wasn't sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews. Pros: 1. Good communication before arrival. 3. Warm welcome. 4. Variety of food basis supplied; milk, tea, sugar, bananas, cooking oil through to foil. 5. Range of cooking appliances; kettle, toaster, slow cooker, hob, steamer, small fridge. Various pots, pans and utensils. Also decent bows, plates, cups and glasses. 6. Offer to use main house oven etc to help cook Christmas dinner. 7. Went extra mile and festively decorated. 8. Plenty of storage cupboards etc. 9. Fantastic shower and thick towels provided. Soap and shampoo provided in wall dispenses - smells lovely. 10. Bed really warm and comfy but rolled into middle (see con 2). 11. Plenty of activity and walk information provided in pack in cupboard. 12. TV & DVD player with remotes (although had to give dvd good clean to get it playing properly). Will need to take own films. 13. Various cleaning products available so can keep as clean as you wish. Cons: 1. No wifi. 2. Bed is two singles put/zipped together, you tend to roll into middle but was warm and comfy (see pro 9). Other: 1. You truly are in the middle of nowhere so no signal however bit of a hotspot at the front gate where you may get a bar or two of signal. Suggestions: 1. Need door glass to be frosted or tinted to allow privacy without closing blind. 2. Radiator too small to heat room properly, larger one needed or better insulation. Perhaps curtain across door to help retain heat. It drops rather chilly. 3. Need to be clearer as to where bin/recycle unit is.

About the location


Appleby-in-Westmorland 3 miles; Penrith 13 miles.

The attractive, unspoilt rural village of Dufton is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District and Eden Valley. The village has a pub, which serves good food, an Agricultural Show held on the last Saturday in August, and is just three miles from the historic town of Appleby. At the heart of the lush Eden Valley, Appleby-in-Westmorland is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Appleby is a major stop on the Settle-to-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain; still today, many of the old steam trains wend their way along this line and over the awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. Visit Appleby in July and experience the atmosphere of the Jazz Festival, which is fast becoming a popular attraction, enjoy a walk on the Pennine Way at Dufton, or explore one of the local cycle trails. With the delightful Pooley Bridge, Penrith and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
