The property

The Old Byre is a two-storey holiday cottage which is situated ten minutes' drive from the bustling Cumbrian town of Appleby. Set over two floors, this cottage provides ideal holiday accommodation for the family within easy reach of one of Cumbria's most important towns. Most of the rooms in the cottage are situated on the ground floor.

Here you'll find a dining room and lounge area as well as the fully equipped kitchen and bathroom.

There are two downstairs bedrooms, making the property ideal for guests with restricted mobility.

One of these is a double bedroom and the other is a twin room.

Upstairs, there is a galleried landing with views over the lounge area and a further double bedroom. Outside the property, you'll find a patio area with seating, perfect for an evening drink as you watch the sunset or for sitting outside and reading a few books during the summer months. The property is located in the small village of Sandford, putting you within walking distance of an excellent village pub serving high-quality meals.

The town of Appleby, roughly a ten-minute drive away, has a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants and the smaller town of Kirkby Stephen, boasting a number of boutique outlets, is within easy driving distance. Both of these towns sit upon the world famous Settle and Carlisle railway, making it easy to enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Ribblehead Viaduct and beyond and offering simple access to the Yorkshire Dales.

You'll also find that the spectacular scenery of the Lake District and all of the outdoor activities it offers are within an easy drive of your cottage. This is a superb cottage which is easily able to accommodate a large family or two smaller families.

It is an ideal choice for anyone keen to explore the great outdoors and enjoy some excellent food and drink during their time in Cumbria.

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.
