    “Lovely week away”

    We were looking for a remote dog friendly cottage and we found possibly the best cottage we have ever stayed in. ...

    We were looking for a remote dog friendly cottage and we found possibly the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Allyson met us on arrival and armed with 20 questions for her, we found the best places to eat, shop, local walk for the boys (2 x Westies) She is a mind of info and well worth spending half an hour in her company. The Cottage is so beautifully decorated and equipped. Though there was only the 2 of us and we used very little in the way of kitchen equipment and rooms, there is so much the property has to offer. Great doggie wet room.....for rubbing down wet paws after a days walk in The Pennines or The Lakes. Washing machine. Spare towels. Cupboard fully stocked with every game you can think of to while away a wet dull afternoon. Welcome gifts for two and four legged guests....amazing cake and bottle of shiraz and tin of doggie treats, Allyson thinks of everything to welcome you to their cottage. The Snug...a small 1 seated room to sit and look out at the view is a must. My treat every morning with a coffee. Archie our puppy loved the view also albeit the local sheep was his interest! The garden has 2 areas with the bottom being fully enclosed even for the most inquisitive Westie! It would of been lovely to seen the garden at it's best mid summer with all of the plants, shrubs and containers in full bloom. But unfortunately October weather took the best out of the blooms. Fully equipped kitchen, Allyson has thought of everything. 6 seater dining table. Dishwasher. Fridge freezer. Microwave. Guest Information book and pamphlets on local visitor sites. Take time to read Guest Information book. It gives you everything you need to know on the property and the local area. A stair gate at the bottom of the stairs kept the boys downstairs at night, usually they sleep in our room and it's in the House Rules no dogs on beds. We are in someone else's home and respect their wishes. Excellent addition. Other dog friendly properties need to adopt. 3 x bedrooms and as I mentioned only the 2 of us so we only used the king size room. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated as were the other 2. Bathroom also well decorated with over bath shower, ample hot water. Living room saw a woodburner fully stocked ready to fire up and plenty of coal sticks and wood if needed. The Cottage is located in a no through road hamlet containing about a dozen other homes. Horses and sheep are your neighbours with plenty of rabbits on their walk to send the boys into a frenzy! Parking for 1 and advise to park tight to the wall. All in all, this is by far the best cottage we have stayed in with Allyson and Mark always ready for a chat over the fence. Would we recommend? I think my review says it all.

The property

This delightful, semi-detached cottage is located in beautiful countryside, close to the village of Warcop and just over six miles from Appleby-in-Westmorland.

Superbly located for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Parks, the cottage has been lovingly restored to provide excellent, spacious and comfortable accommodation for families and friends.

There are two double bedrooms, a twin room and an excellent family bathroom, along with a kitchen with a dining area, a superb sitting room with a woodburning stove and a snug.

Outside, there is a delightful garden to the front of the property, with lovely plants all year long, while at the rear, there is a patio and a further lawned area where you can sit and enjoy dining in the summer sunshine.

The surrounding area is a walkers' heaven, with several trails and footpaths straight from the door and cyclists will enjoy the challenging terrain.

Visit the charming market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland, through which the River Eden weaves its way to the Solway Firth.

Being so close to the Yorkshire Dales, why not visit the lovely market town of Hawes and try some of the famous Wensleydale cheese or enjoy afternoon tea in one of the beautiful cafes; or head to Upper Teesdale and visit the Moor House National Nature Reserve?

The Settle-Carlisle Railway is the perfect way to explore this beautiful region, as it crosses some of the wildest countryside in England over the Ribblehead Viaduct.

Barnard Castle is just 20 minutes' drive away, where you can visit the beautiful Bowes Museum, with its stunning collections.

On another day, head over to Pooley Bridge and discover the beautiful village of Patterdale, perched along the shores of Ullswater.

With so much to see and do nearby, at any time of the year, this cottage is the perfect place to stay whilst discovering Cumbria and The Yorkshire Dales.

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.


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..
