  • "The holiday cottage we stayed in was lovely, well furnished and well equipped in the kitchen."

    A bit let down we weren’t provided with any wood for the fire and the place is very tired and definitely needs some tlc however none of this affected our stay. Very very out in the middle of nowhere with no local shop or cafe (closest was about 5 miles away) but this would suit some people due to how quiet the area is! Overall we would come back again but stay somewhere a bit closer to a town, or even just a shop!

    Many thanks for your feedback. We do advise on the advert that logs need to be purchased locally, but we will clarify that a starter pack regrettably cannot be provided. The property will be redecorated by the end of April 2022 with a new bathroom/walk in shower, new mattresses and bedding, plus new carpets and repainted throughout. Property Owner

  • "Idyllic spot which was perfect for relaxation."

    The cottage was perfect for us. It was comfortable and had all you needed. The view was the garden is gorgeous and it was a great base as it was only a short drive to great walks, pubs and the shops. Would definitely return!

  • "It was brilliant the cottage was on a beautiful location, lovely area."

    We stayed with our two children 2 and 5 and they loved it. The garden was great for the hot weather as we set up a paddling pool. Great cottage, lovely location and an amazing holiday.

  • "Lovely house well equipped, perfect for the walks we wanted to do."

    My only criticism is that the house was extremely cold when we arrived and the storage heaters didn't kick in till the next day, the hot water took several hours to heat up also. Previous cottages we have stayed at have been warm on arrival!

  • "When I booked this for the four of us, two couples, it wasn't expensive so I didn't expect anything flash."

    However, as we left the A66, we past some lovely countryside and on arrival, we were all pretty impressed with the cottage. Knock is a lovely little picturesque village and the views from the garden were breathtaking. There are no pubs or shops in the village but Dufton and Long Murton were not too far away and a pleasant walk, both have a welcoming pub. The cottage itself was spacious, clean and tidy and comfortable for the four of us. Appleby is also worth a visit, we walked in and got a taxi back, all in all, a very nice long weekend and very much value for money!

  • "Nice little place in a really quiet village (it’s just one street really)."

    Around 11 miles to Penrith or 5 miles to Appleby. No weekend buses but taxis will pick up. Panoramic views having an early morning coffee in the back garden. Inside is a mixture of modern (WiFi, kitchen, shower) with traditional cottage ( wooden doors, wood burner ) Overall, it was what we wanted and expected. Would certainly recommend if you want to get away from everything. Negatives? Nothing of any real note. Furniture isn’t the most comfortable and the toilet takes a lifetime to fill back up with water which can be a bit awkward at times!

  • "Plus points: Very spacious cottage in a nice location."

    Kitchen was well equipped. Bed was comfy. Good views from the back garden. Excellent value for money, considering it was half-term week. Problems: The wood burner didn't draw very well so hardly produced any heat. The storage heater on the landing didn't work. The grill hadn't been cleaned. The cottage was very cold when we arrived. In other cottages we have stayed in, the heating has been switched on prior to our arrival.

The property

Dufton 1.3 miles.

This delightful mid-terrace cottage is situated in the rural village of Knock, in the Eden Valley, close to Dufton and five miles from Appleby-in-Westmorland.

Aptly named Cross Fell View and located at the foot of the Pennines, with the Lake District less than 25 minutes' drive, this delightful cottage is ideal for a perfect holiday at any time of the year.

Cross Fell View provides cosy accommodation, ideal for a relaxing break with the spectacular North Pennine fells on the doorstep.

Inside, there is a sitting room with a woodburner to cosy up to if the weather becomes a little chilly.

Alternatively, explore the pretty market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland with numerous shops and inns, or take an evening stroll along the River Eden before enjoying dinner in one of the fine inns.

Why not drive over to Pooley Bridge at the head of Ullswater and enjoy a cruise on the steamer down Ullswater – the second largest in the Lake District?

Pack a picnic and spend a day in this glorious corner of England.

A lovely cottage in a wonderful, unspoilt location.

About the location


Appleby-in-Westmorland 5 miles, Penrith 11 miles.

The picturesque, rural village of Knock is in an ideal location for those looking to explore the North Pennines, Lake District and Eden Valley. The quiet village sits in the foothills of the spectacular North Pennines. Knock is just 1.3 miles from the larger village of Dufton where there is a pub and just five miles from the historic town of Appleby. Kirkby Thore, just a 5 minute drive away has an award-winning bistro called The Bridge, serving an array of locally sourced food. 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-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.
