  • “The cottage exceeded expectations, ...”
    The cottage exceeded expectations, there were many little extra's that made life easier. The only reason we wold not go back there is we like to try out new venues and areas. Judith and Fred were very accommodating and friendly.

The property

Brough 3 miles.

An attractive, red sandstone detached cottage on the owner's upland sheep and cattle farm in the hamlet of Flitholme, a short drive from Appleby-in-Westmorland.

Situated in open countryside, with glorious views over the Pennine hills, the area is ideal for walking, cycling and exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Parks.

Traditionally furnished with a homely feel, the cottage has an open plan living area with characterful beams and a cosy woodburning stove set in a feature stone fireplace.

A lovely, light and sunny conservatory leads off from here, while the two bedrooms take in fine views over moorland and fields.

The small rear garden is accessed via the conservatory and the perfect spot to relax in the sunshine and plan your day.

The surrounding area is a walker’s heaven, with numerous trails and footpaths straight from the door and cyclists will enjoy the challenging terrain.

Just three miles away, the village of Brough caters for everyday needs, with a market square, castle ruins and selection of pubs and shops, while nearby Appleby is picturesque and offers riverside walks, independent shops and is known for its annual horse fair.

Guests will enjoy driving through beautiful scenery to visit the Bowes Museum with its stunning exhibits, or take a trip up the Tees Valley to High Force and Cauldron Snout waterfalls.

Alternatively, drive twenty miles south to Wensleydale and visit the creamery and water mill in Hawes.

A superbly placed cottage to explore the upland fells of England.

About the location

APPLEBY-IN-WESTMORLAND

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.
