About Angela Hardy-Bishop
.My father was born in Cumbria when it was known as Cumberland. Most of my relatives live in the county. This year a couple who were flooded out stayed in my cottage while their home was renovated. My cottage is half way up the hill in the town.. .
Angela Hardy-Bishop purchased this Cottage in 1994
Why Angela Hardy-Bishop chose Appleby-in-Westmorland
.Appleby is an interesting town with some very old buildings. The local people are really friendly. It is close to Windermere. Kendal, Keswick and the lakes to the west and Barnard's Castle, Durham and the Pennines to the east. There are stone circles in the area including Long Meg and her Daughters, Hadrian's Wall is to the north. There is a lot to choose from and in the centre of Appleby there is a very friendly Tourist Information Centre in the Moot Hall (a white building near to the church cloisters). Enjoy.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is very reasonably priced at £250 per week for every week of the year irrespective of bank holidays. There is a minimum stay of 3 nights.
Pool / Spa
A very enjoyable week in an historic county town. Excellent location.
The cottage was well appointed and mainly well set up. It was warm and dry with plenty of room for two adults. My only criticism is the lack of a shower; I can't remember the last time I had a bath. Wi-fi would have been handy but not absolutely essential with the availability of 4G phones. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and found Appleby a great town to spend a week in.
Character and comfort
A charming and characterful cottage giving a relaxing and comfortable base. The cottage is right in the centre of Appleby which has a good selection of shops and a library with free wifi.
The cottage is ideally placed for the Settle to Carlisle railway and gives equally easy access to the Yorkshire dales and the Lake District.
Clean,comfortable and cared for.
In an ideal position for enjoying Appleby and the area.
