Town: Set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley is one of the most elegant and beautiful towns in the north of England â the historic settlement of Appleby, originally the county town of Westmorland. At the heart of the town is the picturesque street of Boroughgate, which boasts some interesting old buildings and links the well-preserved Norman Castle with the fine medieval Church of St. Lawrence. As a major stop on the Settle to Carlisle Railway, Appleby is ideally placed for one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, still undertaken by steam trains which wend their way over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. In June, visitors can experience the atmosphere of the 300 year old Horse Fair. Traditionally, this was an annual event where Gypsies gathered to sell their horses. Alternatively, the July Jazz Festival is fast becoming a popular attraction. The town is also within easy reach of the Lake District National Park, making it a wonderful spot for a family holiday.

My partner and I have had a realy bad year so he decided to take me away for a few days to relax. Fortunately for us, we decided on this wonderful cottage in Cumbria. The people were wonderful, without being intrusive. There was everthing we needed to hand in the cottage. Also there was loads of information about the town and surrounding area. We were able to visit the lake district and the castles which was really lovely - also highly recommended is an Indian restaurant in the lovely town centre called ashianna - if you want to have a lovely quiet get away this is so highly recommended.

Tucked discreetly away near the top of the main street but close enough to all amenities, this 'upside down' cottage is warm, cosy, well equipped, quiet and comfortable. Owners who live in adjoining cottage friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Lovely private garden to enjoy, too. We would not look elsewhere when returning to appleby...a hidden gem!

It's the perfect holiday cottage - everything was thought of, warm and welcoming. Lots of lovely touches - flowers, cake, wifi - it was just fabulous and much as I love the area it was tempting to just stay in all day (we didn't!!). A perfect cottage.
GEOFF AND LIZ'S HOLIDAY
Just what the doctor Ordrered
Left on 08/25/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | GEOFF AND LIZ'S HOLIDAY
After a series of Hospital appointments this cottage proved the perfect get away.
The cottage itself was friendly as was the reception we got from the owners who lived next door.
There was every facility one could wish for in this cottage, including some pre-cut logs for the wood stove should we need it.
The cottage was clean and tidy and it had a lovely garden,for our exclusive use.
The location was perfect at the peaceful end of appleby town., which we had not explored before and there were plenty of walks on the door step.
We could thoroughly recommend this cottage to our friends.
The best holiday cottage we have stayed in.

Could not fault it : tea, coffee, milk, sugar and cake on our arrival was a real bonus. Every conceivable item was supplied, and the accommodation was very comfortable. Excellent.
An ideal retreat
Left on 04/11/2010 for a stay in February 2010 | Almscliff
I am an artist, and have got into the habit of taking a "retreat" every couple of
years to recharge my creative batteries. I choose a small cottage in a quiet
place, in an area I don't know. So, this cottage was chosen very largely on the
basis of location. With art equipment and books (and good food and drink) I
tucked myself away here for a week. The effect of the peace and quiet,
combined with the dramatic visual impact of a snowy February on the hills,
was remarkably restoring. I was very comfortable indeed in the cottage, and
Appleby served all my needs very conveniently. I particularly enjoyed my visit
to the local gallery/coffee shop. The baker sells stuff that's really yummy. I'd
love to go back again -- perhaps next time with my wife, who's very jealous of
my good fortune! The paintings? Two months later I'm still living off the

Lovely 'upside down' cottage, excellent equipment and facilities, lots of books of the area available. Very good location, owners were more than helpful.
Private garden is a bonus.
Appleby is a passed by town, this makes it nice and quiet, lots of eateries and shops. Moors Railway fifteen minutes walk or a short drive through town.
This is one cottage I would revisit.
Nothing I could criticise about the cottage, everything you need is there.

we stayed at oak cottage last year and again this year. Appleby is a good location to base day trips to the lakes, north yorkshire and Cumbria. There are a lot of local walks and motoring off the main roads is a pleasure.
The cottage was very homely with a coal /log fire to use. the lounge and Kitchen area was quite adequate for the two of us. the bedroom was downstairs and very comfortable. The upper level giving views accross the countryside.Parking was at the rear of the property and very safe. we would recommend this cottage and would stay there again.
Special Little Cottage
Left on 12/02/2009 for a stay in September 2009 | Debra
We had a wonderful time when we visited the beautiful Lake district and we couldn't have found a more charming place to stay. The owners had provided everything you could possibly need for your stay and even provided a lovely 'Welcome Pack' for us which was an extremely thoughtful touch.
Appleby itself is a lovely little town, with plenty of places to eat and it provided an ideal base to explore the lakes. However we were disappointed that the castle was no longer open to the public.
We crammed alot into our week but still have only managed to explore half of this beautiful area and hope to return soon.
