Our home is set in the Eden Valley, close to the Lake District, Dales and Pennines. We've given the cottage a new lease of life keeping its original features.
You'll have sole use of a private lounge & dining area (no kitchen) with woodburner tv and comfy sofas. Breakfast is included which can be served to suit your needs. You will have the opportunity to meet our alpacas, ducks and hens(who provide your breakfast eggs).
We have an extra bedroom (extra cost) if required.
Dogs are welcome.
Our home is set in a lovely village, surrounded by fields of cattle and sheep with views across to the Pennines in one direction with the Carlisle to Settle railway line in the distance to the other.
You can walk or cycle from the door straight out into the countryside. After a 30 minute drive you can be in the Lake District National Park or even closer you can be within the Yorkshire Dales. We would be happy to recommend walks to you to suit your ability.
The small market town of Appleby is a 5 minute drive away or a beautiful riverside walk which will take you about an hour. In the town there is a selection of pubs, restaurants and local shops. Appleby Castle is now open to the public everyday.
Within the house you will have a private bedroom with ensuite. We also have an additional bedroom which you can book at an extra cost (however this room will not be let separately to other guests during your stay) . This room has a king size bed in it and shares the ensuite, Jack and Jill style.
You will have sole use of your own private sitting and dining area (no kitchen), with a tv and wood burner (logs etc included in price).
We can offer you a safe, secure place to store your bikes whilst you are here and will also be happy to give you access to the utility room to dry your clothes if you happen upon a rainy day while you are here!
Interaction with guests
We live in the other side of the cottage and will be available to help at all times but the living areas are separate so you can have your privacy whilst here.
Other things to note
You will be welcome to meet the resident alpacas, Georgie, Gecko and Geronimo (Nemo) whilst you are here. You can feed and maybe even walk them. Our golden retrievers are most welcoming and will gladly walk with you around the local area. Eggs for your breakfast will be laid by one of our hen flock and our jams are made from the fruit we grow in our garden. Please Note our animals do not have access to guest accommodation. And there are no self catering facilities.
