Holly Lodge is a charming holiday cottage located in the Eden Valley on the edge of the historic market town of Appleby.
It has a fully accessible ground floor & sleeps up to 7 adults in 3 bedrooms.
Holly Lodge was fully refurbished in Spring 2015 & has a Visit England 4 Star Gold rating with National Accessible Scheme rates of M2, H2, V1
Our dog friendly cottage is an ideal relaxing retreat with the Pennine hills and Pennine Way nearby, perfect for those on a walking or cycling holiday. Near 2 national cycle trails, the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales are also only a short drive away - Ullswater 15 miles, Kirkby Stephen 10 miles - a good central location for touring the area.
We have a wonderful variety of birds in our 3 acres of garden and woodland. Wild flowers abound in our spring and summer flower meadows, together with large pond at the end of the garden. By the pond you see a panoramic view of the Northern Pennines & High Cup Nick
Holly Lodge is now being managed for us by Sykes Cottages but please phone if you would like to discuss anything or book direct with us.
Built in about 1894, it still retains some of its original Scots Pine cladding, this Cumbrian cottage is a cosy retreat. It has views across both the Lake District Fells & the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (better seen from the end of the garden by the pond).
Our "dog friendly" holiday cottage Holly Lodge is attached to The Hollies, a former gentleman's residence. The lodge itself was built as a museum by the then owner, an army officer returning from the 'Zulu wars', to house his big game hunting trophies and his billiards table. It was later converted to use as a 'granny annex' by adding a lean-to bathroom extension which has now been demolished as part of our renovations & replaced with a fully accessible wet room & accessible kitchen.
