'The Garden Cottage' is one of three cottages in the converted hay barn. It has its own entrance with covered porch. The property is 'upside down' with the open-plan living space taking advantage of the high beamed ceiling. The views from the front are across open farmland, usually with sheep or cows in residence. Downstairs is a very spacious bedroom with 4-poster super-king bed along with the bathroom (bath with shower over). The gardens are a haven for wildlife and birds. Among our many regular visitors are red squirrels, deer, rabbits, hares, foxes, pheasants, woodpeckers, buzzards, and a plethora of garden birds. We can let you know the best place to spot them if you are interested. All guests are free to use the games room (with table tennis and pool table), and shared picnic tables and BBQ in the garden. There is also a coin-operated laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer. Due to patchy mobile phone coverage there is a free phone available in the laundry for guest use. Cot and high chair available on request. If 'The Garden Cottage' isn't available for the nights you are looking for please take a look at newly listed 'The Meadow Cottage' - it is just next door and furnished to the same standard. The property number is 5159063.More

Odd decor needs to decide if it's modern or Victorian, but the bedroom is lovely and the surrounding area quiet and beautiful. The porch swing on the side is a delight and offers wonderful viewing of the blue cows next door. Owners are regularly improving...More

About the neighbourhood
Within the Eden Valley there are plenty of local attractions to explore - castles in various states of ruin including the fabulous Lowther Castle estate; parks and gardens including the National Trust's Acorn Bank and Askham Hall; wildlife centres including Wetheriggs Animal Sanctuary and the Bird of Prey centre; and of course numerous walks along the river Eden or up on the neighbouring fells. For foodies, look out for Kennedys Fine Chocolates, Bessy Beck Trout Farm, Orton Farmers Market, Highcup Winery, and Abbott Lodge Jersey Ice Cream Farm (all within about 20min drive). In the summer there are plenty of fairs, shows and festivals to enjoy including the Westmorland Show and the Appleby Horse Fair. We are members of 'Nuture Eden' encouraging sustainable tourism and spending less time in...
How to get there
Appleby is the nearest town to pick-up supplies on your way here - however if you want a supermarket it is worth stopping off at Kendal or Penrith if you are passing.
