Glenridding Cottage description

Holiday home
Glenridding Cottage is a wonderful, spacious, semi-detached holiday cottage in the village of Warcop, just over six miles from Appleby-in-Westmorland, nestled between the Lake District and The Yorkshire Dales. The cottage has three bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs, as well a kitchen with a dining area, a sitting room with a woodburner and a snug on the ground floor. Outside, there is roadside parking for 2 cars, a front and rear lawned garden, plus a patio and garden furniture also to the rear. Set in a great location for exploring both Cumbria and Yorkshire, Glenridding Cottage is a the perfect holiday destination with so many things to see and do all year round.

The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland lies in a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the Pennine range with the Lake District Fells showing on the western horizon. Set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley and steeped in history, this is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Appleby is nestled between the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales, so guests can enjoy the contrasting scenery of these two national parks, plus numerous walking and cycling opportunities as well as the fantastic leisure centre in the town. The picturesque street of Boroughgate, with some 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-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and still today many of the old steam trains wend their way along this line and over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. Visit Appleby in June and experience the atmosphere of the three hundred-year old Horse Fair. With the delightful Ullswater and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.

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 beautiful, comfortable cottage with everything you could need in stunning surroundings

We got a friendly welcome at Glenridding and we were delighted with the cottage and the garden. The house was immaculate and the well maintained, fully enclosed gardens were ideal for the dogs. It's a peaceful place to relax and unwind. We've already recommended the cottage to friends.

Liked the whole holiday cottage, you could not have asked for more.

The welcome from the owners was lovely - they had the house warm, ready and it was spotless. Nothing was too much trouble, yet they didn't bother us at all despite being next door. There were some lovely local walks from the door which was not mentioned in the description.

A fab place to stay - the owners were fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The doggies were spoilt and loved the treats that were kindly left out for them. We are keen to come back already!

The property was excellent, the owners were great and the little touches they did to make us feel welcome were very much appreciated, they have thought of everything. The property was very spacious and tastefully decorated, it had everything you could want. We will be back.

We particularly enjoyed the warmth and comfort of the Cottage. It was spacious and we had everything we needed. The lounge was a good size with a great wood burning fire. We loved the small 'snug', it was great for putting your feet up and relaxing/reading whilst looking out onto the garden and fields beyond.

We had a very warm welcome from our hosts. The whole place was tastefully decorated and very clean. We had everything we needed for a lovely Christmas break with our family. Our dog was also welcomed. We would definitely visit again and recommend this lovely cottage to anyone.

The cottage was gorgeous; very well decorated and presented, and had beautiful gardens both front and back. Travelled with two infants who were well catered for. The owners were very friendly and aimed to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We would come back again and hopefully soon.

The Cottage was just what we wanted. We were made to feel very welcome and relaxed from the moment we stepped in. It is decorated and furnished beautifully and has everything you would need. Comfy living room, nice kitchen, gorgeous bedrooms and bathroom. Even has a little 'snug' where you can sit and read with a nice view. Separate large utility room is very useful and the large garden with seating is very nice and good for the children to play.
Mr Bowles

The property was as described - well-equipped in all areas and spotless too. Plenty of space for 6 adults (and dog) to relax in of an evening. Handy for exploring lots of great countryside. We'd certainly come back here again.

A beautiful cottage in a good location for the north Pennines and the lakes.

The house is beautiful and comfortable. The gardens are huge and full of beautiful flowers. The cottage is very well equipped. The cottage is immaculately clean and furnished to a very high standard. Nothing was missing and we will certainly go back again! We didn't want to leave!

The owners have a beautiful and high quality cottage in a wonderful part of the Pennines. Everything we needed was catered for, including for the dog, which is rare and really appreciated. We enjoyed both leisurely walks straight from the door and adventurous hikes up the wide range of fells close by. This cottage was one of the best we have stayed at over the years and we are already planning our return visit.
Mrs Skelton

The moment we stepped into the cottage we felt so relaxed. Every room was furnished and decorated beautifully. There were lots of special little touches in each room. The views from every window were breathtaking. The owners couldn't have done anything more to have made our holiday better, nothing was too much trouble for them. Everyone we met in the village were so friendly and welcoming. We will definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family, and will be returning ourselves in the near future there.

Liked everything! The cottage was absolutely charming and of the highest standard. Should be rated 5 star. Our hosts were most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. A perfect setting for a quiet and relaxing break and much appreciated by our dear little dog. There was stunning scenery and quaint little towns within easy reach.

We recently stayed at this cottage for 1 week (3 adults, 2 kids and 1 dog). The cottage is very clean and has everything you would need. We liked the wood burning fire in the lounge. There is a small reading snug which was so relaxing with a great view. Large utility room with washer/ironing board etc. This was a great room to dump all your coats and boots when you came back from a long walk. The cottage is a short drive to lots of great places like The Lakes, The Yorkshire Dales and many country villages etc. The owners, Allyson ad Mark next door were very friendly and on hand if you needed anything.

We recently spent a week at the Glenridding cottage for a family vacation along with our two dogs. Finding a cottage that allows a couple of dogs can be diffcult but Glenridding welcomes them with open arms and the dogs are made just as welcome as their owners, there were some nice little touches for the dogs. There were also a few little warm welcome touches for the humans too. The rooms are all very clean and well equiped. We used the oven/dishwasher a few times and everything was straight forward to use. There is a fire place in the sitting room that was used (it was fairly cold the week we were on holiday!). Upstairs the bedrooms are all of a good size and the beds are very comfy. Due to the cottage location its very quiet so no traffic noise. There is a really nice garden space to the front and the back which on good summer days would be lovely to sit out on. The cottage is a bit off the beaten track with the two nearest towns being Appleby and Kirkby Stephen which are approx 10mins drive away. Both of these towns have a good selection of places to eat and shop, appleby probably being the more touristy with nicer gift shops but Kirkby Stephen has better food shopping options to stock up for the week and also more eating out options. Overall the location is good for reaching various places, we took a trip into Yorkshire, the Lake district and the pennines which are all within easy reach. There weren't really any negatives, the only thing we thought would be beneficial would be a dog guard for the stairs just to help stop them going up their at night time, i guess this would also be useful for families with younger children. Overall Glenridding comes with much approval and especially for dog owners it's the haven you've been looking for!

The owners who lived next door were tentative without being overbearing. The cottage was immaculate and everything was in fantastic condition. In particular the kitchen was fab and had everything you needed as well as being modern and stylish.

A wonderful cottage to stay in with access to the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage is beautiful. We were made very welcome by the owner and will definitely be back sometime.

We have just spent a week at Glenridding cottage a beautiful recently refurbished property in a great location for peace and quiet 5 adults and one dog! The owners live next door and what really nice people who made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived . The cottage has absolutely everything you need just like being at home with lovely rear garden and smashing views in great rural location. There are plenty of nice places nearby a short distance by car and great places to eat. If you like walking especially with a dog then this is perfect you would be hard pushed to find anything better will definately be going back

I stayed here for a week from 24th July with my 2 daughters age 7 & 9, and a friend and her 2 children. The cottage was cosy yet spacious and had every home comfort you could wish for. We were lucky enough to have an evening of glorious sunshine and made full use of the gas BBQ and alfresco dining area, overlooking the hills. Despite the weather declining for the rest of our stay we were able to warm up with the wood burning stove. Alysson is right next door with her 4 dogs and hubby, and our children loved to see the dogs and we never felt like we were intruding. Appleby and Kirkby Steven are a short drive away for shopping, swimming and eating out. Glenridding cottage gets 5 stars from all of us!

After staying in Glenridding Cottage for three nights with my family, we were all excited and eager to tell everybody how beautiful our holiday home was! The pictures make Glenridding Cottage look lovely, but seeing it in person is even better! The newly renovated property has been decorated to the highest standard and it really does make your stay that little extra special! The cottage had everything we needed, and it was obvious so much thought and attention to detail had been invested in making this home a perfect place to enjoy your break. The cottage owners genuinely had thought of everything! Upon arrival we were greeted by Allyson the cottage owner who lives next door with her husband Mark, as this is the first time we have used Sykes Cottages we really didnt know what to expect, Allyson was the most welcoming lovely host who made us feel right at home from the beginning, she made it very clear we were to ask if there was anything we needed and we didnt feel like we were putting her out at all, she was so happy to help! Allyson and Mark were always friendly faces in the morning and always made time to stop and chat, asking how our holiday was and answering any questions we had suggesting nice places to visit and eat. The log fire is a beautiful touch and everything we needed was right there, there was more than enough wood, coal and firelighters and Allyson even said her and her husband would help us light it if we were struggling. There was a lovely book on the table detailing everything we needed to know about the cottage, some wine and some lovely jams, also a little visitors book with letters from previous families about their stays, all of which, it seems were as perfect as ours was! We are especially grateful for having the chance to take our dog Billy too! As this was super special and important for us. Billy had his own little room at the back of the house which had a bowl of treats and a lovely letter from Allysons dogs next door welcoming him! this was a lovely touch and really made us smile because he is one of the family! In terms of cleanliness and tidiness the cottage was immaculate in every way! Allyson and Mark you have done a fantastic job, thankyou for your hospitality and also Sykes Cottages for helping us find the perfect holiday home! We cannot recommend Glenridding Cottage enough!!
