****Discounted Prices for any stay within 4 weeks of Enquiry - Ask us for a Quote***

Kay and Andy welcome you to their comfortable and well equipped self-catering properties in the tranquil and picturesque Eden Valley in Cumbria. Originally a 17th-century farmstead, Scalebeck nestles peacefully in the heart of the Eden Valley, just one mile from the pretty village of Great Asby, and surrounded by some of the best local food producers Cumbria has to offer.

Come and relax in Scalebeck's 5-acre grounds... or use as a base to enjoy exploring the nearby Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, and North Pennines. Sit and watch the red squirrels, pheasants, and garden birds... or go hiking, cycling, fishing, or horse riding. It's up to you how active or inactive you want to be!

"The Garden Cottage" is one of three cottages in the converted hay barn. It has its own entrance with covered porch. The property is "upside down" with the open-plan living space

"The Garden Cottage" is one of three cottages in the converted hay barn. It has its own entrance with covered porch. The property is "upside down" with the open-plan living space taking advantage of the high beamed ceiling. The views from the front are across open farmland, usually with sheep or cows in residence. Downstairs is a very spacious bedroom with 4-poster super-king bed along with the bathroom (bath with shower over).

The gardens are a haven for wildlife and birds. Among our many regular visitors are red squirrels, deer, rabbits, hares, foxes, pheasants, woodpeckers, buzzards, and a plethora of garden birds. We can let you know the best place to spot them if you are interested.

All guests are free to use the games room (with table tennis and pool table), and shared picnic tables and BBQ in the garden. There is also a coin-operated laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer. Due to patchy mobile phone coverage there is a free phone available in the laundry for guest use. Cot and high chair available on request.

If 'The Garden Cottage' isn't available for the nights you are looking for please take a look at newly listed 'The Meadow Cottage' - it is just next door and furnished to the same standard. The property number is 5159063.

Location description from owner

The England region

The Eden Valley is a beautiful part of Cumbria, nestled between the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North Pennines area of outstanding natural beauty. As one of the least populated parts of England it is peaceful and relaxing, with many quiet narrow lanes and conservation villages that have hardly changed in 300 years. The region is perfect for walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding, and sampling some really fantastic farmers markets, local food suppliers, and restaurants. If you love the Lake District but not the crowds then Scalebeck is perfect for you. In less than an hour you can be climbing the peaks near Keswick or Windermere - and come back to a quiet peaceful retreat at the end of a hard day's walking. Our nearest lake is Ullswater, a mere 40 minutes drive away. A similar distance away in a different direction and you could be in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales or high up in the Pennines. Plenty of options according to where the weather looks best!

Appleby-in-Westmorland

Within the Eden Valley there are plenty of local attractions to explore - castles in various states of ruin including the fabulous Lowther Castle estate; parks and gardens including the National Trust's Acorn Bank and Askham Hall; wildlife centres including Wetheriggs Animal Sanctuary and the Bird of Prey centre; and of course numerous walks along the river Eden or up on the neighbouring fells. For foodies, look out for Kennedys Fine Chocolates, Bessy Beck Trout Farm, Orton Farmers Market, Highcup Winery, and Abbott Lodge Jersey Ice Cream Farm (all within about 20min drive). In the summer there are plenty of fairs, shows and festivals to enjoy including the Westmorland Show and the Appleby Horse Fair. We are members of "Nuture Eden" encouraging sustainable tourism and spending less time in the car. We are working with them to develop of "doorstep guide" of things to do from our properties including walks and cycle rides.

“Wonderful, relaxing break in excellent accommodation & surroundings”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2013

Peaceful, beautiful surroundings and a cottage that is well-appointed and comfortable, perfect to come back to after a day out exploring the area. The owner is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We saw deer, red squirrel and a variety of birds all from the garden. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break.
