This impressive Georgian country house offers extensive holiday accommodation and stands in it’s own gated grounds in the attractive, ancient market town of Appleby in Westmorland. The property has been totally refurbished to a very high standard retaining many of the original features, including an elegant staircase and traditional open fire. The grounds are mainly laid to lawn with an outdoor eating/BBQ area and hot tub. Just a five minute walk takes you down to the town centre. Appleby is built in the curve of the River Eden and is a traditional medieval town with the castle at the top of the hill sloping gently downhill to the church. This is one of the prettiest market towns in England and despite once being the county town of Westmorland it retains a village atmosphere with a great deal of interest and charm. Situated in the beautiful Eden Valley the location is superb for exploring the highlights of the North of England as it separates the Lakes District fells from the Pennines and also gives easy access to the Yorkshire and Durham Dales.The scenic Carlisle to Settle railway route runs through Appleby and makes a great day out. Further afield, the Northumberland National Park along with Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Border are within an hours drive. Superb walking, cycling, golf and fishing are all available near by. A good selection of shops and pubs 500 yards.
