The property

Dufton 2 miles.

This beautifully-presented, semi-detached stone cottage is located on the owners' working livestock farm, on the edge of the Eden Valley in the hamlet of Keisley, near Dufton in the east corner of Cumbria, nestled between the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines.

Well-furnished throughout, this elevated cottage provides upside down accommodation for friends and families wishing to explore some of the most stunning areas in this part of the country.

This unique cottage oozes character, with stone flagged floors and latch doors whilst upstairs the open plan living space has a vaulted ceiling, beams and a cosy woodburning stove, ideal for those chilly winter nights.

Downstairs are two bedrooms, one benefiting from an en-suite shower room, as well as a separate bathroom.

This lovely cottage really takes advantage of the simply stunning far-reaching views and boasts a raised decked balcony with a hot tub, perfect for enjoying the distant mountain and countryside views.

The sunsets here with its westerly aspect can be sublime, and the decking provides an ideal spot to sit out and relax with a glass of your favourite tipple.

Tucked beneath Dufton Pike, the attractive village of Dufton with its elegant houses and cottages boasts a good pub serving food and is also conveniently located on the Pennine Way and Cumbria Cycle Way.

Just over four miles away is the historic town of Appleby, situated on the Eden River and where you can take a ride on the Settle-Carlisle Railway.

With many walks available from your doorstep and the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales being easily accessible, you will be spoilt for choice on your holiday.

Relax and enjoy the peace and beauty of this special location and the facilities this cottage has to offer, making it an ideal choice whatever the season.

About the location


Appleby-in-Westmorland 3 miles; Penrith 13 miles.

The attractive, unspoilt rural village of Dufton is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District and Eden Valley. The village has a pub, which serves good food, an Agricultural Show held on the last Saturday in August, and is just three miles from the historic town of Appleby. At the heart of the lush Eden Valley, Appleby-in-Westmorland 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-to-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 July and experience the atmosphere of the Jazz Festival, which is fast becoming a popular attraction, 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.
