Lovely cottage in a great location

5 of 5
The cottage is really well equipped, extremely clean and with great views across the valley to Appleby Castle. Carol was really welcoming. We had a great time and will definitely return again.

A little gem of a cottage in a beautiful village.

5 of 5
We arrived to a warm welcome from Gill and Adam and a lovely homemade lemon drizzle cake as well as basic store cupboard essentials. The cottage is beautifully kept and well equipped. It was in the middle of the heatwave so we had breakfast outside on the little patio whilst watching the village go by. It kept the sun til late in the evening so after a busy day, a well earned glass of pinot was enjoyed. We visited the chocolate factory and what a delight that was :-) The village is situated to enjoy both the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales and we did both during our stay. We didnt want to leave but will be booking again in Autumn to see the Lakes in a different season. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. It was cosy and a little retreat from the madness we all know as life. See you again Cumberland Cottage you were simply amazing!!!
