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.
