Cherry Tree Barn
Set in some of the most peaceful and picturesque countryside the region has to offer, Cherry Tree Barn is a rural hideaway on the doorstep of a great range of sightseeing possibilities. Traditional in style, this first-floor apartment is part of an old converted barn dating back to the early 20th century. The current owners lovingly converted the space in 2001, and its quirky layout adds to its charm, with the core accommodation tucked away in the eaves, offering attractive features and tremendous views over the Pennines. Exposed beams, latched doors and apex ceilings are all part of the unusual design.
The real magic of this property for many is its stunning setting and the fact that you only have to step out of the front door to enjoy it. Ponies parade around in the adjoining field with the Pennines offering a splendid backdrop beyond. The owner's garden, which guests are encouraged to enjoy with a seating area on the patio and sun loungers on the lawn, is a perfect place to relax while planning your next outing. There are many walks to be experienced from here, and after you've finished exploring, the child and dog-friendly New Crown Inn offers restaurant-style dining, a well-stocked bar and relaxed seating in front of the open fire.
The delightful village of Bolton is located in the Eden Valley that is four miles from the historic market town of Appleby. For those looking to venture further afield the Scottish Borders are not too far away, together with Hadrian's Wall and the historic City of Carlisle. Appleby is home to the Appleby Horse Fair that takes place in June each year. You can also visit the historic Castle and Church that were restored in the 17th Century. It offers an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area and being nestled between the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Lake District National Park noted for its diverse landscape and excellent sightseeing opportunities; it's a perfect choice for those seeking adventure as well as tranquillity.
