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.

Located within the owner’s grounds, this property is situated just 3 miles south of the ever-popular historic town of Appleby, offering a mix of pubs, restaurants, tearooms and shops. Appleby is a great stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway route and even now, many of the country’s steam trains make their way over the historic Ribblehead Viaduct and past Long Marton Station. The Dales High Way is right outside, and the property is perfect for walkers or hikers too, being close to the Pennine Way and nestling in the beautiful Eden Valley. Ullswater is just a short drive and the magnificent Lake District, or head east to the Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland, and north to the Scottish Borders – they are all within easy reach, making this a perfect holiday location.

The main space in this studio-style apartment is made up of the stunning lounge/kitchen/diner/bedroom with patio doors to the garden. The lounge area offers a great place to kick back and relax, with a comfortable sofa and chair, where you can unwind after a day of exploring and watch the TV in front of the multifuel burner. In addition to this, there is a lovely dining area set beside the kitchen, which is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, and everything you require for holiday dining. The stylish bedroom area provides a cosy place to snuggle up in the super-king-size bed. Finishing the accommodation is the shower room with shower and WC.

The garden is the perfect place to enjoy those summer days with a decking area. There is plenty of space for your dogs to roam around the garden. Head through the gate for a lovely choice of walks. There is off-road parking for up to two cars.

What a great cottage. Everything we needed for our stay was available in the cottage. If we had needed anything the owners, Sandra and Frank, Im sure would have been very accommodating. The garden was superb and fully enclosed. We thoroughly enjoyed our short break spent at The Dairy.

The Dairy is absolutely the perfect place for a little getaway. It's a great size and having access to its own private garden was great for our dog. It's lovely and cosy and has everything you need to be able to relax. It's in a great location for going on walks straight out of the garden or for travelling to nearby attractions. They were the perfeRead morect hosts, leaving welcoming touches around the place to make sure we instantly felt right at home. Couldn't recommend it more. Hide

Just returned from a wonderful mini break at The Dairy. We received a warm welcome from the owners upon arrival and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is well equipped and in a beautiful setting with gorgeous walks on the doorstep and a country pub just a stone's throw away. This Dairy truly is the perfect escape!

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
