  • "This is our fifth stay at Elm Tree Cottage."

    Great and location for cycling and walking. Appleby is a short drive away for shops. There is a pub near the cottage. Owners are friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again. Thank you

  • "A fantastic ground-floor cottage in a lovely Cumbrian village."

    A well-equipped kitchen with a double oven. A great shower and bathroom, and the whole house is spotlessly clean. Fast Wi-Fi (70Mbps). Super comfy beds and the whole area is quiet, so a very good night’s sleep. The local pub, just 5 minutes walking is warm and welcoming and very dog friendly. Bring a torch as there are few street lights in the village. Just one niggle, I often work with blind people and so I notice these things. Taps should be hot on the left and cold on the right. The mixer tap in the bathroom is the wrong way around.

    Would not recommend this cottage to anyone the owners were very rude to us and they amitted they were rude to us we stayed one night out of five would never do there again discusted

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you seemed to find it difficult to accept a check-in time of 5 pm (which is clearly stated on the description) as we had explained to you on 2 occasions that this time is at the request of the housekeeping company that looks after our changeovers, and therefore it was not possible to allow an early afternoon check-in, even though you had been to the Cottage before 3.30 pm to try to check-in. We trust that you were happy to accept our gesture of goodwill of the refund for the other nights that you had booked. It’s a shame that you decided to leave before you were able give a true and accurate review for the Cottage. Property Owner

  • "A beautiful cottage, Barry & Karen were excellent hosts."

    ,The cottage is attached to their main house, but is totally private. It hads it own garden to the side and a back patio with a table and 2 chairs. Patio is accessed through the bedroom double patio doors. The queen size bed was luxurious with lovely hotel white bedding. Plenty of white fluffy towels supplied by owners. The one thing I found difficult was the under counter fridge/ freezer was very small. A bigger fridge would be great even with a top box fridge. S slimline dishwasher ensured sparkling clean dishes too. Shower and toilet facilities were excellent with plenty of hot water too. Heating was excellent and had the option for extra heating if required. A last minute booking was a great find for us. We loved the quietness if the cottage and the easy access to the A66 10 miles from Penrith, Would recommend and will happily book again, Nearby Appleby has all you need for grocery shopping, also had some good gift shops too. Great walk along the river too. Many thanks Barry & Karen Kind Regards Carole, Kim & Penny our black Labrador

A charming single-storey cottage set in the pretty village of Long Marton, deep in the Eden Valley.

Offering excellent accommodation, this well-equipped Appleby cottage is a perfect base for those wishing to enjoy comfort in village surroundings, with beautiful countryside on the doorstep.

This Appleby cottage has a spacious bedroom, so you can get a great night's sleep, ideal after days spent out and about exploring the area.

The cosy sitting room in this Appleby cottage has soft leather sofas perfect for relaxing, while the well-equipped kitchen with dining area is lovely for romantic meals together.

The charming village of Long Marton has an 18th century inn serving food, and the Tirril Brewery is also located in the village, producing ales such as Old Faithful and Bewshers Best, so you can be sure of a good pint when you're in the area.

Rail enthusiasts will be delighted that the Settle-Carlisle Railway runs through the village of Long Marton, and from the nearest station at Appleby you can travel across some of the most magnificent countryside passing through the Yorkshire Dales across the Ribblehead Viaduct to Settle, or westwards passing through Lazonby, Armathwaite and arriving into Carlisle - the 'Border City'.

This is a lovely Appleby cottage, perfect at any time of the year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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. 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.
