Appleby and the spectacular Settle-Carlisle railway are just 6 miles away. Penrith 19 miles - from there to Ullswater, Keswick and the beautiful north Lake District. The Yorkshire Dales are equally accessible to the east. Yet Great Asby is not en route to anywhere, so there is little traffic through the village. If you fancy a break from self-catering our friendly village pub The Three Greyhounds offers excellent pub grub. We look forward to your visit to greatasbyoldrectory.More
