The property

Appleby-in-Westmorland 5.2 miles.

Nestled in the quiet little village of King's Meaburn near Appleby-in-Westmorland, Cumbria is this quaint terraced cottage, Rose Cottage.

With the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east and the Lake District to the west, this is a perfect, rural location for a family or group of three to explore England's finest countryside.

A few stone steps lead you to the enclosed front garden where the cottage sits picture-perfect at the end of the path.

Be welcomed by a lovely kitchen/diner with hard wooden floors, pretty tiling and a classic Belfast sink; set the dining table and cook up a storm in the kitchen area, complete with an electric oven and hob, and a dishwasher for a fuss-free tidy up.

Head to the snug sitting room with a sumptuous sofa to sink into after a long day's hike and catch up on your favourite TV shows, whilst the woodburning stove gently warms the room.

As your eyes grow heavy, two stunning bedrooms await in Rose Cottage with wooden beams, ample storage space and quaint cottage décor; rest your head in the king-size bedroom for two, whilst the third guest gets a charming room all to themselves.

Explore your local surroundings in the peaceful village of King's Meaburn, surrounded by countryside and home to The White Horse Inn to take a break from cooking and dine in a quintessential village pub.

Appleby-in-Westmorland is just a short journey away, a larger market town resting in the picturesque Eden Valley, with plenty of supermarkets to stock up the cupboards and eateries to fuel your day.

Spend a day in Penrith exploring the incredible ruins of the 14th-century Penrith Castle, with wonderful grounds perfect for picnics, whilst the town centre offers local history in Penrith and Eden Museum and plenty of independent shops to pick up the perfect souvenir.

On your way into the Lake District, be sure to stop off at Lowther Castle & Gardens, one of the many gems waiting to be discovered in this spectacular National Park, surrounded by acres of woodland and ancient parklands.

Next stop is Pooley Bridge for a variety of traditional inns and tempting tearooms; take a tranquil cruise down Lake Ullswater to the villages of Glenridding and Howtown, or lace up your hiking boots for plenty of paths leading you to breath-taking views.

Along Ullswater, find nature trails guiding guests to the renowned Aira Force Waterfall, or climb Heughscar Hill for perfect vistas right across the lake.

Heading south east from Rose Cottage brings you to Kirkby Stephen, a historic market town and the perfect spot to stop for lunch before venturing into the glorious countryside; discover Smardale Gill Nature Reserve, rolling hills and castle ruins in the Yorkshire Dales, whilst peace and quiet awaits in the North Pennines with striking landscapes and vibrant villages scattered throughout.

Book your stay at Rose Cottage with an abundance of sights on your doorstep.

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.
