Berts Cottage description

Holiday home
Berts Cottage is an attractive barn conversion in the hamlet of Heights near to Appleby-in-Westmorland in Cumbria. The cottage provides upside down accomodation and can sleep four people in two ground floor bedrooms as well as a ground floor bathroom. The rest of the cottage is made up of a first floor open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner. To the outside is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed patio garden with furniture. Set in a stunning location, Berts Cottage is a great place to relax and enjoy at any time of the year.

The town of Appleby-in-Westmorland lies in a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the Pennine range with the Lake District Fells showing on the western horizon. Set at the heart of the Eden Valley, 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.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Excellent cottage in excellent location.. We were blessed with good weather so were out and about every day. The cottage had some quirky artefacts which added to the interest and enjoyment. It's a pity there wasn't a picture window to enjoy the view from inside the cottage as on a cold, damp day you wouldn't benefit from the lovely patio and the rooms are rather dark. Very trendy, good quality kitchen equipment, though a teapot would have been appreciated. Beautiful surrounding countryside but not too far from amenities at Appleby and Kirkby Stephen. Ideal location for the Lakes and the Dales.

Wonderful cottage, in fab location.. Great walking, waterfalls and hills. Peace quiet and gorgeous views, everything you could want inside and outside of the cottage, warm fluffy blankets for sunset watching with a glass in hand. Toasty fire, and snuggly sofas, full of lovely quirky things, felt like home. We WILL be back. Thank you

House was beautiful, felt like a home with lovely throws pictures ornaments etc The views were fantastic, nice walks in the countryside on your doorstep.. Appleby is a lovely small town about 1015 mins away for all your shopping. We will return next year, give it a try.

Very clean and superbly furnished.. We are already looking at next dates to book. Nicely located for a variety of days out and so peaceful and quiet at the end of the day.

We had a wonderful week, helped by the weather! The cottage worked well for 4 adults although storage in the second bedroom is limited. Unfortunately the file of details was not at all obvious and we only found it (under the coffee table) on the penultimate day so at first we struggled a bit to find lights and with the cooker etc. The location was brilliant, we did Durham,York, Hadrian’s Wall ,The Lakes and the Appleby to Ribblehead section of the Settle to Carlisle railway all in the week.

Bert's Cottage is a gem among the jewels of the local countryside.. The property is furnished to a very high standard but still feels homely. Locally sourced goods for comfort and pleasing on the eye mix with well known brand names in the kitchen but the whole property has a warm and cosy feel to it; it was hard to pack up and go home. Situated where it is, Bert's Cottage gives you access to a range of attractive places such as Appleby, Orton, Sedbergh and Penrith, as well as the miles of stunning countryside just waiting to be explored. Delicious food is to be found almost everywhere and the friendliness of the locals adds to the pleasure of visiting. I am already looking at our diary to see where we can squeeze another visit in!

The cottage was even better than we had expected, it was very comfortable and cosy, and very well equipped and with some very nice touches.. The location gave us exactly what we wanted - peace and quiet! We visited places we had not previously visited, including Appleby and Penrith, and we particularly enjoyed visiting Rutter Force waterfall, which we walked to from the cottage! Would definitely recommend Sykes Cottages and, in particular, Bert's Cottage.

Berts Cottage is an excellent choice.. The location is wonderful - easy to reach places of interest and walks straight from the door. The quality of the furnishings and the fittings is really excellent - it felt like a real home, not a temporary holiday home fitted out with cheap IKEA furniture. Very highly recommended.
