Cottage Near Appleby, Cumbria, England - Located In Tranquil Rural Area With Idyllic Scenery The stone-built cottage dates from the early 19th Century when it was commissioned as a school and is located near the village of Great Musgrave. There is a secluded private garden with established trees and a small patio area complete with outdoor furniture. The property is not overlooked, even by the attached owners house. However, a few local rural properties can be seen in the near-distance. The view from the cottage garden looks out over the fells. Whilst the cottage is secluded and tranquil, road links and amenities are not far away. The main trunk route between Scotch Corner and Keswick (the A66) is only half a mile away. Please note that your Sat Nav would take you to the next village. You can ask Pauline the owner to send you directions.

Absolutely perfect location!! Surrounded on all sides by sheep. Amazing! With a car, many locations and scenic views are available, both typical lakeland scenery and dales scenery. Pauline is a complete gem. Has everything sorted for the stay and has it all organised brilliantly. This cottage literally has everything you need whilst on holiday.
Wholeheartedly recommend and will return, hopefully very soon!!!!
A very beautiful little cottage in a stunning location.

geweldige locatie met een bijzonder vriendelijk ontvangst

Het huisje is van alle gemakken voorzien en schoon.
Alles is aanwezig voor een geweldig verblijf voor zowel een zonnige als een regenachtige dag.
Locatie is perfect met uitzicht op de bergen en dalen en qua ligging is het grandioos.
Dicht bij de Yorkshire Dales en het Lake District en de North Penines.
De eigenaar van het cottage (oud schooltje uit 1828) is bijzonder vriendelijk en behulpzaam, maar respecteert ook je privacy.
Al met al zeker aan aanrader voor mensen die van rust en de natuur houden.

There simply are not enough words to explain how thoroughly lovely our stay at Pauline's cottage was. I came across the cottage whilst looking through the Owners Direct website, Myself, my husband & our 10 year old son along with my parents (78yrs & 80yrs) stayed for a week in July, as we all know you can never predict the English weather but even that was fabulous which was just an added bonus. The real pleasure of our holiday was staying in such a pretty, beautifully kept, clean, tidy & homely cottage as well as meeting Pauline Ellwood the owner who is without doubt one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. On arrival we were greeted very warmly & shown the amenities & how everything worked. We have stayed in many cottages around the UK & I often find they are missing the odd essential like a can opener or bread knife so I took the odd household utensil just in case the cottage didn't have it but I really needn't have bothered, this little gem has absolutely everything you can think of, we were so impressed, from kitchen whisks to egg slicers from DVD's to board games you will want for nothing. With its beautiful high ceilings & generously sized rooms there was plenty of space for all 5 of us to move around comfortably including our little spaniel Luna who loved playing in the secure garden & who Pauline welcomed with open arms. From the outside The Cottage oozes history & is beautifully quaint while on the inside it is a fully equipped home from home with a modern cooker, electric shower, washing machine & fridge so we were able to have our Asda online shop delivered direct to us when we arrived & after a little (but safe) walk on the Morecombe mud flats the washing machine was an absolute god send. It is situated just off the A66 so we were close to all the local places of interest & only 50mins away from Bowness & Windermere, the world (or at least the North) was our oyster & my son Alfie would highly recommend the Ice Cream Parlour at Brough Castle. Like I said in the beginning there are not enough words to explain how lovely this little place is & how friendly & accommodating Pauline was. I could go on forever, needless to say we didn't want to leave & we cant wait to go back. xx
Very nice old cottage, nothing modern but very basic and nice. Will go there again for sure!

The reception by Pauline was very heartwarming and friendly. She showed us around the cottage, where she lives attached to. But she was very modest and didn't bother us for the rest of the week. If we had questions she would answer them very friendly. If you like modern: don't go there. If you like an oldfashioned, basic holiday in a beautiful surrounding, with a friendly owner you must book. It was for us worth the staying!!

Home away from home!

Having been to a number of cottages around the country, I can say that this one tops the lot! It is in a very convenient location, being between the Lakes & the Dales & has all the facilities you'd want on a relaxing holiday in the country. The owner is very pleasant & will help you with anything you need but she isn't pushy or in your face. An ideal cottage owner! I look forward to future visits, of which I hope there will be many!

I have had holidays in several cottages in this area over many years but once I found the School Cottage over 20years ago I haven'nt been anywhere else, It's just perfect for the Lakes/Dales and North Pennines and I've stayed at Paulines at least twice a year clocking up over 50 visits. Even if not going out the views from The Cottage are great and the magic of Langrigg never fails.

We came for a two week stay & found the cottage to be homely & comfortable. The lady owner is friendly & knowledgeable about the local area, particularly places to eat out. Our weather was brilliant for the whole two weeks (no rain whatsoever). Our two small dogs also enjoyed the enclosed garden adjoining the cottage. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who enjoys a home away from home & has an interest in the Dales & the Lakes (both easily accessible from this cottage). If anyone can find a better cottage in the general locality or a cheaper one then I'd suggest they book it. But I know from experience you will NOT find anything anywhere near as good FOR THE PRICE! We will certainly be back! Well done, Pauline.
