Holiday home Glenridding Cottage is a wonderful, spacious, semi-detached holiday cottage in the village of Warcop, just over six miles from Appleby-in-Westmorland, nestled between the Lake District and The Yorkshire Dales. The cottage has three bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs, as well a kitchen with a dining area, a sitting room with a woodburner and a snug on the ground floor. Outside, there is roadside parking for 2 cars, a front and rear lawned garden, plus a patio and garden furniture also to the rear. Set in a great location for exploring both Cumbria and Yorkshire, Glenridding Cottage is a the perfect holiday destination with so many things to see and do all year round.
Area The historic 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 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. 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. Visit Appleby in June and experience the atmosphere of the three hundred-year old Horse Fair. With the delightful Ullswater 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.

Had a wonderful week at Glenridding Cottage with our family and two dogs. The cottage is decorated to a high standard and is a home from home. The garden is beautiful
and fully enclosed, so safe for our dogs. The snug was a favourite to sit in with a coffee looking out at the garden and the Pennines in the distance.
The location was excellent, with a main road nearby and easy access to the Lake District, Pennines or Yorkshire Dales, you really are spoilt for choice. Even when the weather was bad, it was nice to spend the day in front of the log burner watching dvds and playing games.
The kitchen was well equipped and all rooms were and excellent size and very clean; it is clear that the owners put a lot of effort and care into the property. The owners were very friendly and always on hand to help, weather it be directions to local shops or advise on parking at nearby villages. Their dogs were lovely, and our children loved meeting them over the gate.
An excellent cottage, welcoming owners and perfect location which we will definitely be revisiting very soon.
Immaculate, well presented dog (and human) friendly cottage.. The owners are very welcoming and have thought of absolutely everything! Lovely finishing touches, perfect location for exploring Lake and Pennines.
Plenty hot water, roaring log burner, warm & cosy, excellent facilities, spacious utility room for dogs & well maintained, secure gardens.
Trips to Keswick, Ullswater & Penrith and go in the other direction for Hawes, Buttermere and a beer a Tan Hill Inn (England's highest pub). Spectacular walks to waterfalls at Aygsurth, High Force & Aria. We literally ran out of time and will definitely be back. This cottage ticks all the right boxes, and more!!!
We stopped in Glenridding Cottage for a long weekend as two couples, with one small toddler as we were attending a wedding in the local area.. The cottage is very spacious with a great homely feel. It has all the facilities you could require for both short and longer stays, including a well stocked board game cupboard which we took advantage of. Thanks to some nice weather we enjoyed evenings out in the lovely, well maintained garden which is enclosed (ideal for us with a toddler exploring!).
Allyson and Mark were superb hosts and greeted us all with a warm welcome and shared great knowledge of the local area.
I would highly recommend the cottage.
The cottage was so quiet and peaceful, a real home from home with lovely touches and the owners thinking of everything for a comfortable and relaxing stay.. It was spotlessly clean, had everything we needed and was very dog friendly. We enjoyed the card,bottle of wine and cake that welcomed us when we arrived and our two flat coated retrievers loved the dog treats! There were plenty of dog bowls and blankets for the dogs if we needed them and the enclosed garden was lovely and safe with plenty of areas for you to sit and take in the scenery. All in all a lovely cottage in a lovely area. Would definitely like to make a return visit.
Nothing too much trouble for the owners Allyson and Mark.. Everything you could possibly need for a dog friendly break.
Fantastic cottage stunning views.. Close to kirby Stephens and appleby. Had fantastic time wish I could have stayed forever. Deffo be back in future
We had a fantastic three nights away over New Year in this cottage.. Alyson was so welcoming and even left gifts for us and the dogs on arrival. The cottage has many little extras such as games, dog bowls, maps of the area, bird feeders and many more. The cottage was spotlessly clean and comfortable and in a lovely quiet location . We loved relaxing in the lounge with the log fire after a days walking! The dogs loved the garden and its great that it is enclosed. Everything you could need to be able to cook meals is provided and all the crockery is lovely and new. We had the best start to new year at this cottage and we love to return!
Lovely location, warm welcome and dog friendly made this an ideal place to spend a weekend.. We will be back!
Stunning very well equipped cottage, with some nice personal touches from the owners who live next door.. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable, a real home from home. Would highly recommend.

A great place for a family get together.. Superb cottage, extremely clean and very well presented and equipped with everything needed. Beautiful garden, very safe for the dogs who loved it.
We were made to feel very welcome by Allyson. Thank you for a lovely relaxing stay. Highly recommended!
What a beautiful cottage, in such lovely surroundings.. Everything you could wish for to make a truly relaxing holiday. A big thank you to the owners for the warm welcome and lovely touches. Our 2 greyhounds loved the safe enclosed gardens to play in. We will definately recommend this super cottage to all our family and friends. Its better than on the photographs! We look forward to going back soon!
We have just returned home from this wonderful holiday, 2 adults and 2 digs.. We spent a week at Glenridding Cottage and had a fantastic and relaxing time. The cottage is lovely and has everything you could think of available to you. The place is spotless and the owners are lovely. The garden is fully secure so your dog's are always safe. The scenery is amazing. We were sad to go home and will definitely return.
The cottage is very well equipped.. It's in a beautiful location which is very peaceful and relaxing. The owners, who live nearby, are very friendly and helpful. This is on our list of properties we would return to.
Had a lovely family holiday here at Glenridding Cottage, an extremely clean well equipped cottage with everything we needed, our dogs thoroughly enjoyed the lovely enclosed garden, set in a quiet location.. Would highly recommend.
Charming and delightful country cottage superbly maintained and located well within easy reach of the lakes and the dales
Our hosts and their cottage together with the surroundings will take some beating..
Perfect cottage for a quiet, relaxing holiday.. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped with lovely comfy beds and crisp white linen sheets. The photos don’t do this cottage justice. It has a wonderful rear garden with beautiful views, fully enclosed and perfect for our two dogs to play in. Owners live next door and told us the best walks for the dogs to go. Very helpful and not a bit obtrusive. Will almost certainly return.
Cottage location was lovely, right in the Eden Valley and with lots of footpaths right from your doorstep.. The cottage is remote which we liked but its like home from home, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The owners are right next door and so any problems could be easily sorted, not that we had any at all. Dogs are more than welcome here, Alyson and Mark even left them treats and a welcome card. We felt at home and very welcome. We would visit again without hesitation.
Best cottage we have stayed in.. Had everything we needed . We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. We stayed for a whole month and would have stayed longer. Our two dogs loved the enclosed garden . We loved the snug, and the welcome pack was very much appreciated . Allyson and Mark the owners were very helpful and obliging and we would love to go back in the future

Beautiful cottage with everything you could want supplied.. It was absolutely first class .The owners were so helpful .even gave the dogs some treats for Christmas. We would love to stay again.
The cottage was absolutely perfect with everything provided - a real home from home.. The little 'snug' was a lovely room in which to sit with a cup of coffee and a book. Especially liked by our dog Louie - we always knew where he was! The whole cottage was beautifully kept and very clean and warm. Allyson and Mark were very friendly and helpful and the welcome package was enjoyed by us all. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage.
The facilities were superb - far exceeded any place we have stayed - everything was quality.. Stunningly clean and welcoming with lots of little touches. Owners friendly and ready to help in any way, to the extent of bringing their dogs in when we let ours out in the garden to prevent any possible conflict. No negatives at all.
The house was beautiful.. Completely spotless and very well equipped. If we ever holiday in that area again we'd gladly stay there! Perfect!
Beautiful cottage with immaculate decor and furnishings and very pretty gardens.. Dog friendly and welcoming owners next door. Lovely surrounding area for walking. Exceeded our expectations.
I can highly recommend Glenridding Cottage, perfect tranquil location , friendly welcoming owners, beautiful well equipped Cottage, bird heaven, nice big garden..
The best cottage we have stayed in by far.. Beautifully decorated, very clean, well equipped and extremely dog friendly. We would definitely go back.
Lovely cottage which we will certainly be staying in again.
Right near the main road but far enough away, with hills inbetween, to not even know the road was there.
The front of the cottage also faces a paddock where you can sit in the lovely front garden and watch the horses graze.
The house is really nicely set out. Holidaying with dogs can be problematic but this place is made for it. The owners are dog friendly and have their own dogs next door. The house has a boot room for throwing muddy dogs and can be accessed via the kitchen so you dont have to worry about messing the living room up.
The kitchen is very spacious and even has a 'reading' room off it with a picture window overlooking the lovely rear garden and the fields behind it.
Due to having two big dogs I have to worry about the security of the gardens when visiting rentals but this place is made for dogs. There is a large, high fenced section for the dogs to roam or sunbathe and then a separate further garden for people only. Absolutely ideal to let the dogs out in a secure area in the morning to do their ablutions.
The living room is really cosy but big enough for 6 and with a lovely iron stove which the owners top up with fuels for a small fee.
All the bedrooms are very spacious and light and the decor of the whole cottage is modern but with cottage character.
We got a friendly welcome at Glenridding and we were delighted with the cottage and the garden. The house was immaculate and the well maintained, fully enclosed gardens were ideal for the dogs. It's a peaceful place to relax and unwind. We've already recommended the cottage to friends.
Liked the whole holiday cottage, you could not have asked for more.
We recently spent a week at the Glenridding cottage for a family vacation along with our two dogs. Finding a cottage that allows a couple of dogs can be diffcult but Glenridding welcomes them with open arms and the dogs are made just as welcome as their owners, there were some nice little touches for the dogs. There were also a few little warm welcome touches for the humans too.
The rooms are all very clean and well equiped. We used the oven/dishwasher a few times and everything was straight forward to use. There is a fire place in the sitting room that was used (it was fairly cold the week we were on holiday!). Upstairs the bedrooms are all of a good size and the beds are very comfy. Due to the cottage location its very quiet so no traffic noise. There is a really nice garden space to the front and the back which on good summer days would be lovely to sit out on.
The cottage is a bit off the beaten track with the two nearest towns being Appleby and Kirkby Stephen which are approx 10mins drive away. Both of these towns have a good selection of places to eat and shop, appleby probably being the more touristy with nicer gift shops but Kirkby Stephen has better food shopping options to stock up for the week and also more eating out options. Overall the location is good for reaching various places, we took a trip into Yorkshire, the Lake district and the pennines which are all within easy reach.
There weren't really any negatives, the only thing we thought would be beneficial would be a dog guard for the stairs just to help stop them going up their at night time, i guess this would also be useful for families with younger children.
Overall Glenridding comes with much approval and especially for dog owners it's the haven you've been looking for!
A beautiful, comfortable cottage with everything you could need in stunning surroundings
The welcome from the owners was lovely - they had the house warm, ready and it was spotless. Nothing was too much trouble, yet they didn't bother us at all despite being next door. There were some lovely local walks from the door which was not mentioned in the description.
We had a very warm welcome from our hosts. The whole place was tastefully decorated and very clean. We had everything we needed for a lovely Christmas break with our family. Our dog was also welcomed. We would definitely visit again and recommend this lovely cottage to anyone.
The property was excellent, the owners were great and the little touches they did to make us feel welcome were very much appreciated, they have thought of everything. The property was very spacious and tastefully decorated, it had everything you could want. We will be back.
We particularly enjoyed the warmth and comfort of the Cottage. It was spacious and we had everything we needed. The lounge was a good size with a great wood burning fire. We loved the small 'snug', it was great for putting your feet up and relaxing/reading whilst looking out onto the garden and fields beyond.
The property was as described - well-equipped in all areas and spotless too. Plenty of space for 6 adults (and dog) to relax in of an evening. Handy for exploring lots of great countryside. We'd certainly come back here again.
We recently stayed at this cottage for 1 week (3 adults, 2 kids and 1 dog). The cottage is very clean and has everything you would need. We liked the wood burning fire in the lounge. There is a small reading snug which was so relaxing with a great view. Large utility room with washer/ironing board etc. This was a great room to dump all your coats and boots when you came back from a long walk. The cottage is a short drive to lots of great places like The Lakes, The Yorkshire Dales and many country villages etc. The owners, Allyson ad Mark next door were very friendly and on hand if you needed anything.
The house is beautiful and comfortable. The gardens are huge and full of beautiful flowers. The cottage is very well equipped. The cottage is immaculately clean and furnished to a very high standard. Nothing was missing and we will certainly go back again! We didn't want to leave!
A fab place to stay - the owners were fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The doggies were spoilt and loved the treats that were kindly left out for them. We are keen to come back already!
A beautiful cottage in a good location for the north Pennines and the lakes.
A lovely refurbished cottage and in a great location.
The Cottage was just what we wanted. We were made to feel very welcome and relaxed from the moment we stepped in. It is decorated and furnished beautifully and has everything you would need. Comfy living room, nice kitchen, gorgeous bedrooms and bathroom. Even has a little 'snug' where you can sit and read with a nice view. Separate large utility room is very useful and the large garden with seating is very nice and good for the children to play.
I stayed here for a week from 24th July with my 2 daughters age 7 & 9, and a friend and her 2 children. The cottage was cosy yet spacious and had every home comfort you could wish for. We were lucky enough to have an evening of glorious sunshine and made full use of the gas BBQ and alfresco dining area, overlooking the hills. Despite the weather declining for the rest of our stay we were able to warm up with the wood burning stove. Alysson is right next door with her 4 dogs and hubby, and our children loved to see the dogs and we never felt like we were intruding. Appleby and Kirkby Steven are a short drive away for shopping, swimming and eating out. Glenridding cottage gets 5 stars from all of us!
We have just spent a week at Glenridding cottage a beautiful recently refurbished property in a great location for peace and quiet 5 adults and one dog! The owners live next door and what really nice people who made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived . The cottage has absolutely everything you need just like being at home with lovely rear garden and smashing views in great rural location. There are plenty of nice places nearby a short distance by car and great places to eat. If you like walking especially with a dog then this is perfect you would be hard pushed to find anything better will definately be going back
The cottage was gorgeous; very well decorated and presented, and had beautiful gardens both front and back. Travelled with two infants who were well catered for. The owners were very friendly and aimed to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We would come back again and hopefully soon.
Liked everything! The cottage was absolutely charming and of the highest standard. Should be rated 5 star. Our hosts were most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. A perfect setting for a quiet and relaxing break and much appreciated by our dear little dog. There was stunning scenery and quaint little towns within easy reach.
The owners have a beautiful and high quality cottage in a wonderful part of the Pennines. Everything we needed was catered for, including for the dog, which is rare and really appreciated. We enjoyed both leisurely walks straight from the door and adventurous hikes up the wide range of fells close by. This cottage was one of the best we have stayed at over the years and we are already planning our return visit.
The moment we stepped into the cottage we felt so relaxed. Every room was furnished and decorated beautifully. There were lots of special little touches in each room. The views from every window were breathtaking. The owners couldn't have done anything more to have made our holiday better, nothing was too much trouble for them. Everyone we met in the village were so friendly and welcoming. We will definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family, and will be returning ourselves in the near future there.
After staying in Glenridding Cottage for three nights with my family, we were all excited and eager to tell everybody how beautiful our holiday home was!
The pictures make Glenridding Cottage look lovely, but seeing it in person is even better! The newly renovated property has been decorated to the highest standard and it really does make your stay that little extra special! The cottage had everything we needed, and it was obvious so much thought and attention to detail had been invested in making this home a perfect place to enjoy your break. The cottage owners genuinely had thought of everything!
Upon arrival we were greeted by Allyson the cottage owner who lives next door with her husband Mark, as this is the first time we have used Sykes Cottages we really didnt know what to expect, Allyson was the most welcoming lovely host who made us feel right at home from the beginning, she made it very clear we were to ask if there was anything we needed and we didnt feel like we were putting her out at all, she was so happy to help!
Allyson and Mark were always friendly faces in the morning and always made time to stop and chat, asking how our holiday was and answering any questions we had suggesting nice places to visit and eat.
The log fire is a beautiful touch and everything we needed was right there, there was more than enough wood, coal and firelighters and Allyson even said her and her husband would help us light it if we were struggling.
There was a lovely book on the table detailing everything we needed to know about the cottage, some wine and some lovely jams, also a little visitors book with letters from previous families about their stays, all of which, it seems were as perfect as ours was!
We are especially grateful for having the chance to take our dog Billy too! As this was super special and important for us. Billy had his own little room at the back of the house which had a bowl of treats and a lovely letter from Allysons dogs next door welcoming him! this was a lovely touch and really made us smile because he is one of the family!
In terms of cleanliness and tidiness the cottage was immaculate in every way! Allyson and Mark you have done a fantastic job, thankyou for your hospitality and also Sykes Cottages for helping us find the perfect holiday home! We cannot recommend Glenridding Cottage enough!! The Hardmans
A wonderful cottage to stay in with access to the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage is beautiful. We were made very welcome by the owner and will definitely be back sometime.
The owners who lived next door were tentative without being overbearing. The cottage was immaculate and everything was in fantastic condition. In particular the kitchen was fab and had everything you needed as well as being modern and stylish.
