How far from Appleby?
We are 1.5 miles away from the town of Appleby
Do we need a car?
It is recommended to have a car as public transport does not come to Highmoor cottage. Also the taxi service is very limited. Having a car means you can explore The Lakes & Cumbria with far more freedom
How do I get to you by car?
We are easy to get to from all major roads. M6, A66 to Appleby then head to Brampton, there is a cross road, turn right down a farm lane we are at the end of the lane to the left. CA16 6JR
Are there outdoor activities at Highmoor Cottage?
You can start walking straight from the cottage but if you would like to walk or bike up the Pennine or Lake fells then a short car journey is recommended.

What Our Clients Say

Had such a lovely week, cottage is perfect and area is beautiful. Kids loved feeding Una and Jasper and getting cuddles. Sandra and Bailey made us so welcome, the cottage soon felt like home. We all enjoyed watching so many varieties of birds on the bird feeder. Appleby is such a wonderful town with very friendly people. Can recommend food at the Crown & Cushion. Hope to come visit again, Thank you Sandra

Had a lovely stay. Cottage is nice in a beautiful location. Very good for birds. Have enjoyed watching the spotted fly catcher on the nest (kitchen window over looking the woods) The feeders at the front have been a hive of activity. Great spotted woodpeckers, Robins, Blue Tits, Great Tits, Chaffinches, Black Bird. Loved watching the red legged partridges running down the road. Lots of sunshine and fab walks. Sandra is a fantastic host. Thank you so much!

Such a lovely holiday. We all agree that this house is the most relaxing that we have stayed in, and we have stayed a lot. We loved watching the birds and hedgehogs and making friends with Jasper, Una and Black Cat. Great location too. We shall be back. Thanks for everything Sandra (and the wine) xxxx

Dawn, Owen, Ellie & Keira

Recently visited high moor cottage for the week with our little girl Luna and our dog BamBam. What a lovely week it was. The cottage is stunning and so peaceful. Sandra was so welcoming when we arrived and introduced our little girl to her horse and donkey in the field next to the cottage. She was  always happy to help with anything if needed too. Lots of wildlife, walking trails and just a short distance from Appleby town. If you have children I would definitely recommend a visit to south lakes safari zoo. The cottage was perfect for us. We will definitely be visiting again. x
