Blacksmith Cottage description

Holiday home
Blacksmith Cottage is a terraced, former Blacksmith's cottage in the town of Appleby-in-Westmorland. This cottage sleeps three people in two bedrooms, consisting of one double and one single, and there's a bathroom available. Also in the cottage is a kitchen with breakfast bar and a sitting room with dining area and gas fire. Outside there's off road parking for one car and a raised patio that leads to a mature garden area with furniture. Blacksmith Cottage is a lovely base for a couple or small family who wish to explore this wonderful area.

The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland is situated on a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the Pennine range.

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.

The cottage was spotlessly clean. The owners were very friendly. It would be hard to improve on this cottage. We loved it.

Our holiday was just what we wanted, nice and relaxing. The cottage was in an excellent position. The owner of the cottage greeted us on our arrival.

Blacksmith Cottage was restful and very quiet, good walks locally for the dog and nice area round about.

This cottage was homely enough to feel like we'd moved home temporarily, and were living amongst locals like the owners next door rather than being in a group of holiday properties. We liked being in the centre of the town, and were pleased to be part of Appleby's economic revival after the winter flood damage.The decoration, style and furnishings were clean, smart and comfortable.

A lovely welcome from the owners. It was an excellent base for exploring The Lakes and The Eden Valley. Everything about the cottage was great and we would recommend it to our friends.

The cottage was well-equipped, warm and comfortable during a period of awful weather. It was centrally placed for the town's amenities. The owners were friendly and helpful. We would visit again in hopefully better weather. We enjoyed some local walks and the local shops and pubs, and always looked forward to returning to the cottage. It was particularly nice to be able to have our dog with us. In better weather the lovely garden would have well-used.

Extremely helpful and friendly hosts. The property is situated in an ideal area for exploring the Lake District, The Scottish Borders, The Yorkshire Dales and The Northern Pennines.

We stayed for a week to do some walking in the area. The weather was pretty poor but the house was well equipped and comfortable. It was great to have such a cosy place to warm up and dry out! The covered area to the rear was especially useful for cleaning our boots and the owner helpfully supplied a bucket. We ate out in the evenings (after all it is a holiday) but there are few places to do so on foot. The Turton Arms and the Ashiana are in the village centre and both are good, the other pubs don't do food. The Royal Oak is good but it's a ten minute walk uphill.

The house was great, just as expected. It had everything we required and the owners were friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back.
