    It is a gorgeous spacious cottage with amazing facilities and great quality furntiure and appliances. The whole process of booking through to check out was simple and easy.

About the property

Appleby-in-Westmorland 3.2 miles.

Resting in the quaint village of Long Marton is this charming mid-terrace dwelling, Croft Cottage, beautifully renovated and brought into the 21st century with underfloor heating and rejuvenated original features.

The cottage enjoys an amazing position near to Appleby-in-Westmorland and within easy reach of the North Pennines AONB and two national parks, Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.

Step inside this charming cottage after parking up on the off-road parking space, entering into the long entrance hall before turning into the lovely sitting room; discover a woodburning stove resting within the fireplace to keep you warm on a winter's evening, with two sofas to relax on and a TV to entertain.

Admire the sand-blasted timber frames lining the ceiling before taking a step up through the large timber door frame and into the kitchen/diner where you'll come together around the dark wood dining table for delicious home-cooked meals prepared in the sleek, navy fitted kitchen with windows overlooking the garden.

Enjoy the beautiful enclosed garden in the warmer months, home to a patio with outdoor dining furniture for alfresco evening meals, with multiple levels leading up to a sloping lawned area with a summerhouse.

Find a lovely twin bedroom on the ground floor along with the family bathroom, boasting an original stone fireplace as a characterful feature alongside the bath with overhead shower, ideal for those with mobility issues to enjoy ground-floor living.

Travel upstairs to discover the master bedroom where you can settle within the covers on the king-size bed and take a refreshing shower in your own en-suite shower room with a large skylight to illuminate the space.

Venture across the road to the local village pub, The Masons Arms, serving excellent food and drink, so handy to have on your doorstep, with the town of Appleby-in-Westmorland boasting a wider range of restaurants and plenty of shops to pick up all your essentials and ingredients.

Begin your walking adventures with a walk in the North Pennines AONB up High Cup Nick, a U-shaped valley resting on the Pennine Way with the dramatic geological formation of this famous nick being an incredible sight.

Holding the title as England's highest point outside of the Lake District is the peak Cross Fell, with epic views on a clear day, it's just a scenic drive from the property and well-worth exploring.

Enjoy a day out to the town of Penrith and discover a myriad of historical attractions, with the 14th century ruins of Penrith Castle, Penrith and Eden Museum, the huge prehistoric stone monument of Mayburgh Henge, Brougham Castle and King Arthur's Round Table to name just a few!

The Lake District's Ullswater Lake is a scenic spot for a leisurely ramble alongside the water with a detour taking you up to the magnificent Aira Force Waterfall.

The Eden Valley is a beautiful setting for more excellent walking, while the northern area of the Yorkshire Dales has plenty to offer by way of scenic landscapes and fantastic trails.

With so much choice all around you from this Cumbrian dwelling, Croft Cottage is a wondrous base for your next break to Cumbria.

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. With the delightful Ullswater and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
