“comfortable and welcoming ”
Lovely setting, walks on doorstep, accommodation spacious and warm. Would caution no village shop, nearest supplies Appleby so minimum of basics milk, drinks etc need to be brought in. Pub usually does food but not over our stay, just a matter of timing.not that it was an issue for us but WiFi not available.
A very spacious, well located and superbly equipped base for small or large groups of 2-30. The four cottages are around a courtyard but have privacy from each other. There are several areas where groups can gather together for eating or socialising. We can offer a range of options to celebrate special events, including an onsite marquee for hire, a covered BBQ area, local caterers, organised activities such as canoeing, ghyll scrambling, off road biking, climbing, or just up the road, wine tasting. Alternatively our village pub is just a short stroll away.
The Pennines provide many walks from the doorstep including the spectacular glaciated valley of High Cup Nick, or quiet woodland walks in the Eden Valley. The country lanes are perfect for cycling, and bike hire can be arranged locally (bikes delivered with all extras provided). Further afield, the numerous attractions within an hour's drive include aerial zip wires, animal parks, working mines and a Via Ferrata, a new and exciting way to climb a mountain.
All bedrooms are spacious and many have en suite facilities. There are many traditional features including 3 real fires, with all properties being listed, but all modern conveniences too. All properties are fully centrally heated and prices include all electricity, bed linen and towels with no hidden extras. There is off-street parking.
Arrival and departure times are often flexible, as we try to give our guests the longest possible time to enjoy the properties and the area.
Children welcome from any age.
