    The hot tub is a lovely extra, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We had a problem with flies while here and emailed Ruth for some advice but received quite an unhelpful email; that this was down to the location and that there were no more fly rolls with no other suggestions (we understand the location but would perhaps have liked an offer to at least try and find us a solution). Photos of the fly roll from the end of our stay show the amount of flies were not 'normal'. We ended up keeping all windows and the door shut to keep the flies away which was a shame considering the lovely environment we'd have loved to embrace fully. This was even more a problem as all the plates/bowls were on open shelves which meant flies could land on them, meaning constant washing of dishes. The kitchen was under stocked with limited glasses (we'd expect more than one large glass in a holiday home for 2). More effort could have been put into the cleanliness of the property, with cobwebs in the bathroom, dirty plates in the plate stack and hairs on the wooden shower mat. Like past reviews, I'd agree the sofa is uncomfortable with the TV being small...though there was no signal for it so we didn't bother anyway. The lights weren't great; downstairs in the living room only 1 worked and upstairs in the bedroom the light was faded and hummed. Overall the location won us over but we probably wouldn't use the Brew House as a base again.

About the property

Appleby-in-Westmorland 6 miles.

The Brew House is a beautifully quirky stone cottage overlooking the pretty village of Maulds Meaburn and the beautiful river Lyvennet, situated in the Westmorland Dales, which is part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Just a couple of minutes' drive from the bustling market town of Appleby and surrounded by gorgeous rolling countryside hills, perfect for some scenic walking and hiking.

The Brew House is a truly stunning and characterful retreat, perfect for couples looking for a quiet break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Converted from the village brew house, this pretty property has a courtyard patio area with garden furniture and is a real sun trap, ideal for enjoying your morning coffee whilst watching the sunrise.

With bags of character and charm throughout, from the handmade wooden kitchen to the old oak beams, it really doesn't get much better.

The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you could need to cook up a storm, with a dishwasher to support.

Whilst the wet room features tiled floors, walls and a delightful contemporary suite.

With views across the picturesque countryside to the village beyond, delight in the lovely dining table for two and enjoy the sunshine through the picture window.

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.
