Set in glorious countryside, in the delightful tucked away hamlet of Brackenber, the property sits just a short drive off the A66 offering guests easy access to both the northern Lakes and Ullswater and the much loved Eden Valley and North Pennines. Ideal for golfers, Appleby Golf Course is literally a few minutes down the lane, set out on Brackenber Moor – a challenging and spectacular course known as ‘ Gleneagles in the raw’. This 18 hole course offers stunning views of The North Pennines, The Howgills and Lake District fells.
The popular historic market town of Appleby (just 3 miles away) offers an excellent mix of independent retailers, cafes, restaurants and traditional public houses where the local ale can be enjoyed along with a taste of good local fare – ideal after a day on the golf course or exploring the local area. Sitting on the river, Appleby is a pretty town with much to offers visitors (and an ideal distraction for non-golfers in the party to perhaps entertain themselves!) and an ideal base for venturing further afield whether on foot or enjoying the many cycle routes the area enjoys.
Brackenber Lodge offers comfortable accommodation which is ideal for friends or families holidaying together. A generous open plan living/dining room offers an excellent space to come together after a busy day out and about. A neat enclosed patio offers the chance to enjoy a quiet drink under the tumbling wisteria. Beyond the patio, and the run enclosing the neighbouring pony and chickens, the shared gardens offer a delightful stroll down to the pond area. Lovely views and a relaxing environment make this a delightful spot on fair weather days. Shops 3 miles.
