    “Simply the best holiday rental we have ever stayed in.”

    5 star all the way. Beautifully curated with lovely pieces , everything needed has been thought of and very warm and comfortable, not forgetting the great views and peace and quiet. Loved the proximity to Appleby for great coffee breaks and supplies. Lovely friendly local in the villages and good eating places close by. We didn't want to leave but we will be back! Well done to the owners you have created a wonderful space.

    Thanks so much for this wonderful review. So glad you enjoyed your stay at Bert’s as this means everything to us. Also pleased you loved Appleby and the surrounding area. It really is an hidden gem but so close to the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales. Carol and Martin Property Owner

About the location

APPLEBY-IN-WESTMORLAND

Penrith 14 miles.

The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland lies in a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the Lake District Fells showing on the western horizon. Set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley and steeped in history, this is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Appleby is nestled between the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales, so guests can enjoy the contrasting scenery of these two National Parks, plus numerous walking and cycling opportunities as well as the fantastic leisure centre in the town. Appleby has a wonderful selection of quality independent shops, cafes and delicatessens selling locally produced food and crafts. The picturesque street of Boroughgate, with some interesting old buildings, is at the heart of the town and links the well-preserved Norman Castle with the fine medieval Church of St. Lawrence. Appleby is a major stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and still today many of the old steam trains wend their way along this line and over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. With the delightful Ullswater and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
