Former Cumbrian farmhouse - the date above the door says 1740 - in Long Marton, near Appleby-in-Westmorland, on the East Fellside of the Eden Valley in Cumbria. As the name suggests, it is situated in the middle of the village, next to a well-run pub serving excellent meals.
Long Marton is 3 miles from Dufton and the Pennine Way (we are happy to arrange transport for walkers) and only a slight detour off the National Cycle Route 68. It is also on the route of Lady Anne's Way. Easy access to the Pennines, the Lake District and perfect to break a journey to Scotland (Glasgow and Edinburgh approximately 2 hours). The village is just off the A66.
Accommodation offered is one double room (can be twin) with en-suite shower and one twin room sharing family bathroom. Dogs welcome. Off road parking and locked space for bicycles and/or motorcycles.
Refreshment trays, WiFi and TV in both rooms. Drying facilities available. Guests welcome to use family living room and/or kitchen if they wish.
There is no convenient public transport through the village.
Guest parking on drive. Locked facilities for bikes.
Check-in after 6pm, unless by prior arrangement. Check-out by 10am. Guests staying subsequent nights welcome to use facilities during day. No smoking please.
Excellent stay albeit for 1 night only. Many thanks Anne.
Thanks, John. It was good to meet you. I hope all goes well for you. I'm afraid I was away during the review-writing period and don't seem to find a way to make a belated one - so this will have to be it. I am happy to recommend you to any future hosts - as long as they don't produce soggy toast! Anne
I loved staying here and everything was just as described. I slept like a log and ate like a queen!
Anne couldn't have been any more accommodating for me if she'd tried - even helping to dry out my very wet clothes after a day spent at a very wet festival nearby.
I very much hope to come back another time and stay with Anne. Lovely lady.
