Area The historic town of Appleby, set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley, was originally the county town of Westmorland. The picturesque street of Boroughgate, with 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-to-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and today many of the old steam trains still wend their way along this line and over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. With the delightful Pooley Bridge and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
Region 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.

Elm Tree Cottage is lovely, really comfortable and spacious, it really is a home from home.. It's a credit to the owners, Karen and Barry. Long Marton is a great base for exploring the area and the local people are really friendly. Great pub on the doorstep and also a bakery in the village selling lovely pies and cakes. We enjoyed ourselves so much we have already booked for next year!

The cottage was perfect in every way - highest standards of comfort and luxury, the kitchen was very well equipped. we loved every minute.
Warm welcome from the owners after a long journey and they were always on hand if needed. A beautiful holiday cottage; the owners have worked very hard to give you everything you need for a relaxing holiday with plenty of information about the property, the places to go and the things to see. We have stayed in a few Sykes cottages; this is far and away the best and is a great advert for Sykes.
The owners of this property have clearly thought very carefully about what a holiday maker wanted. We had everything we could possibly need and it was such a lovely, clean and welcoming home. The kitchen in particular was superb; the heating and hot water were very efficient . The owners were very friendly and although we were left to our own devices we definitely had the impression we could contact them if we needed to. It was an incredibly happy stay; thanks to all the effort the owners of the property went to for us.
Enjoyed the whole time we were there, I would give this 10/10 excellent and would return as it was beautiful.

The owners of Elm Tree Cottage were very welcoming when we got there and offered any help or advice if we wanted it on places to visit. The cottage was absolutely fabulous. A very comfy home from home with all the equipment and facilities needed. The nice little touches of a little welcome card, pint of milk in the fridge and biscuits were very nice. The pub in the village, The Masons Arms, had a very good menu and the food was wonderful. Would definitely recommend as a cottage to rent to anyone.
There was not any one thing that I particularly like, the whole cottage was just excellent!
We received a very warm welcome and useful tour of the cottage from the owner on arrival. Very well appointed and spotlessly clean accommodation. Many lovely little touches, even down to a bag of biscuits for our dog. Would certainly recommend this property to anyone for a relaxing break.
