Tucked away in the picturesque village of Ullock, Apple Tree House is a lovely holiday cottage perfect for couples as well as accommodating up to six people if you use the attic bedroom.
Ullock is a great starting point to explore the Western Lake District and coast. Loweswater Lake is only a ten minutes drive away, and Ennerdale Water is 15 minutes. Both lakes enjoy a certain solitude that can sometimes be hard to find in the Lake District.
There are a couple of pubs within a couple of miles of the cottage – The Wild Duck in Branthwaite or the Royal Yew in Dean which has an ancient yew tree in its forecourt, reputed to be 1000 years old. Dogs are welcome at the Royal Yew.
For shops, Cockermouth (just 5 miles away) has a wide variety of small independent shops, pubs and cafes, as well as a Sainsburys. Here you can take a tour round the Jennings Brewery or visit the Kirkgate Centre which doubles up as a theatre and cinema.
