The Property is a striking 5 star Gold Award property situated in the centre of the charming village of Brampton in the picturesque rural Eden Valley area of Cumbria, with easy access and one mile from the market town of Appleby.

The village of Brampton faces the stunning Dufton Fells in the Eden Valley. If you don't fancy a drive, there is an abundance of great walks on the doorstep. Alternatively there is easy access to the Lake District National Park with Ullswater 25 minutes away or the Yorkshire Dales National Park a similar distance in the other direction. The pretty market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland is just a mile away and has a variety of local shops including two excellent butchers, a bakery, gift shops, a good selection of cafés and pubs, a beautiful castle and the famous Settle to Carlisle railway. There is a good choice of pubs within a mile or so in Dufton, Long Marton or Bolton and many others slightly further afield.

Accommodation in Detail

As you drive through the gates into the courtyard, guests immediately realise that The Property is going to be something special. Park your car underneath the impressive deck and walk into the central courtyard passing the quirky Dog Shower and beautiful Organgery entering the property through a spacious boot room that is ideal for all the outdoor gear. From here the three principle living spaces await you. The large reception room is tastefully furnished with sumptuous sofas, antique furniture and original artwork. This characterful room includes a wood burning stove and the owners have retained the original feature fireplace with Victorian brass and black leaded range.

The large kitchen is well equipped to the very highest standard and is the real heart of the home with its large farmhouse breakfast table that can seat the entire household.

The Eden Valley lies to the north east of the Lake District and offers so many places to visit and things to do. A haven for walkers and cyclists, there are countless beautiful tracks and trails to discover along the Pennine Way including the popular circular walk to the nearby Dufton Pike.

The historic village of Appleby-In-Westmoreland is just a mile from the cottage, with a lovely selection of local shops and welcoming pubs and eateries, is home to the historic Appleby Castle, which includes one of the few remaining intact Norman Keeps in Great Britain dating back 900 years and is a great choice for history buffs.

Keen golfers can visit the superb Appleby Golf Club which welcomes visitors and has an excellent clubhouse.

Within easy reach of The Property and Brampton, Ullswater is regarded by many to be the most beautiful of all the lakes in the Lake District. Much of the lake, its shore and surrounding fells are accessible for visitors to explore, where you will find some of the finest walking, cycling and water sports including sailing and kayaking, along with the amenities of the lakeside villages. One of the most glorious walks in the National Park is the Roman road known as High Street that runs along the eastern fells of Ullswater. Hiking can be combined with a trip on the Ullswater Steamer which stops at Pooley Bridge, Howtown, Glenridding and Aira Force. For those who like more challenging walks, the surrounding area has some of the best walking country in the Lakes, including Helvellyn, the third highest peak in England with its precipitous Striding Edge. There are a number of activity centres in the area including water sports tuition and hire, adventure activities and bike hire.

LocationCumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
