    “We had a wonderful holiday.”

    We met up with family whom we had n’t seen since January and enjoyed a very special week together. The cottage had a lovely feel to it and was spacious and airy for the 4 of us and our 2 dogs. We loved the view of fields, the sound of the owls and sheep at night and the little garden where the dogs romped happily together. There are some good walks nearby in this area of unspoilt countryside and good pubs. The place was spotlessly clean...reassuring during these times and essential. Shops ...

    We met up with family whom we had n’t seen since January and enjoyed a very special week together. The cottage had a lovely feel to it and was spacious and airy for the 4 of us and our 2 dogs. We loved the view of fields, the sound of the owls and sheep at night and the little garden where the dogs romped happily together. There are some good walks nearby in this area of unspoilt countryside and good pubs. The place was spotlessly clean...reassuring during these times and essential. Shops are not nearby. We picked up provisions in Kendal before arriving and were glad we didn’t forget anything as not much is provided in the cottage in the way of teabags etc....probably due to restrictions. There were no fire irons and so we couldn’t clean the wood stove between fires and it is a practical place rather than luxurious. Hey, I’m scratching about for criticisms here. We found beds really comfortable, the wood stove made our evenings cosy and the little garden made the dogs holiday. The booking process was made special by the friendly service of Sykes. I wish I could remember who I spoke to to thank them for being so helpful and we hope to come back to this very special place when we can.

About the location

MAULDS MEABURN

Appleby-in-Westmorland 6 miles; Penrith 13 miles.

The attractive, unspoilt rural village of Maulds Meaburn in the Lyvennet Valley is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District, Eden Valley and the Yorkshire Dales. Hunter Davies described the village as "one of the most beautiful villages in the country". It is a quiet picturesque village in Cumbria not far from the Eden Valley and about six miles from Appleby-in-Westmorland. It forms part of the parish of Crosby Ravensworth and stands either side of Lyvennet Beck which flows from the south through Crosby Ravensworth and finally enters the River Eden near Temple Sowerby. Nearby Appleby sits at the heart of the lush Eden Valley, and 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 June and experience the famous Horse Fair, the largest Romany gathering in Europe, 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.
