Formerly a dairy, this cottage near Appleby has been thoughtfully converted into a cosy and charming cottage, perfect for couples wishing to escape to a tranquil part of Cumbria.

Escape to the countryside of Cumbria at this thoughtfully converted former dairy, now a cosy studio-style cottage, ideal for couples seeking a peaceful retreat near Appleby. Spend the day exploring the Yorkshire Dales, North Pennines, or the Lake District, and then return home to bask in the warmth of the crackling wood burner or soak up the last of the sun in the expansive private garden.

Step inside and relax in the inviting lounge area, complete with a comfortable sofa and chair, perfect for unwinding in front of the wood burner after a day of exploration. The adjacent dining area offers a space for enjoying meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.
