Bakers Cottage description

Holiday home
Bakers Cottage is an end-terrace cottage situated in the village of Kirkby Thore, five miles from the town of Appleby-in-Westmorland. This cottage sleeps three people in two bedrooms, consisting of one double and one single, along with a compact shower room. The cottage also has a kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburning stove. Outside there's an enclosed patio with furniture and roadside parking in a side street next to the cottage. Bakers Cottage is a great base for exploring Cumbria and the Lake District National Park.

Kirkby Thore is a small Cumbrian village situated within easy driving distance of both Appleby-in-Westmorland and Penrith. The village sits on the site of a Roman cavalry camp, and today offers a church, a shop with Post Office, a pub and a petrol station. The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland is a major stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway and every June the town plays host to a three hundred-year old Horse Fair. Also within reach is the bustling market town of Penrith, which has a number of specialist shops, sandstone buildings, pubs and restaurants, plus Ullswater and the Lake District National Park are nearby.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

A very cosy comfortable cottage. The kitchen well supplied with utensils, it was very clean and in a quiet location.

Great little cottage in a quiet village that served as a great base for exploring the Lake District. Not a lot on offer in the village itself but the restaurant is great and very accommodating. The owner was really helpful and even came to drop off a highchair the day we arrived as well as posting our steriliser home after we had left it! I would definitely recommend this cottage to couples and small families wanting to visit the lakes.

We had a wonderful stay at Bakers Cottage, it was like home from home. The owner had thought of everything to welcome us on arrival. The cottage was immaculate, the only problem was the weather as we were on Amber alert for flooding but the owner couldn't do anything about that. I will definitely return and recommend Bakers Cottage to my friends and relatives.

My wife and I rented the cottage and found it a good location to explore the Eden Valley and the Lakes. The kitchen is well kitted out - the owner thought of everything. Furnishings and bedding are in excellent condition. There is a nice garden with table and 4 chairs. My reason for giving it a 4 star rather than 5 is that the cottage is on the small side. The bathroom is the size of a small en-suite and the bedroom with the double bed is small. Overall, good value.

The cottage could not be any better! The standard was excellent and attention to detail was second to none. Everything was thought of. The general area was quiet and quaint, and with the A66 M6 nearby it has great connections to all nearby attractions and locations.

An excellent property in a great location and with friendly neighbours. The cottage was better than we expected and we could not have asked for anything more. We will be looking to stay again in the very near future and we have recommended this to family and friends. 110% perfect throughout!
