Maulds Meaburn 3 miles.
A delightful stone-built, end-terrace cottage in a quaint countryside location in the hamlet of Reagill, three miles from the village of Maulds Meaburn and within driving distance of Penrith.
Set next to a working farm, amongst charming Cumbrian countryside, with beautiful long-distant views of the far-off Howgill Fells, this cottage provides a perfect base for groups to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this lovely area.
The cottage features an unusual layout, set across three floors, including a ground floor extension where you will find a sociable open plan living area with modern kitchen, dining and sitting area with French doors accessing the enclosed rear courtyard.
A double bedroom and shower room complete the ground floor, whilst the first floor is made up of a further double bedroom and a bunks room both served by a bathroom, and a balcony area ideal for watching the world pass you by.
An open tread staircase leads to a spacious second floor sitting room with Velux windows where you can enjoy the views, and an antique woodburner, making it a spacious and very comfortable holiday home.
On clear evenings you can gaze up at the dark sky to be amazed by the stars, which can be clearly seen due to the remote, rural area this holiday home is set in.
With the colourful market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland less than 20 minutes' drive away, famous for its Horse Fair, which takes place during early summer, this is a lovely area to visit on your self-catering holiday.

About the location
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.
Note: The property is next to a herd of dairy cows.
