Town: The historic town of Appleby, set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley, was originally the county town of Westmorland. The picturesque street of Boroughgate, with 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-to-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and today many of the old steam trains still wend their way along this line and over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. With the delightful Pooley Bridge and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.

The cottage was in an excellent location close to a pub and baker as described in the advertisement. The owners are close at hand to show you round what is a charming property that is well equipped and has its own particular charm. The garden was large and enclosed excellent for those of us who own dogs with plenty of room to run about. I would recommend this property for its central location to the lakes. The residents in the village are very friendly and all in all we had an excellent stay.
