We had a one night stop as part of our journey on the Settle to Carlisle Railway. It's a good 15 minute walk from the station, but well worth the effort for the quality of accommodation, the friendliness and welcome. The Cottage provided all that 4 adults could want plus the extra comfort of having our own sitting room. We...

We were most impressed by the food on offer. The ambience in the restaurant was lovely and the service was great. We were also very happy with the room...

We had spent a few hours walking with friends who were staying at Royal Oak with their daughter and husband and 3 young children. The 9 of us ate in a small annex to main dining room, where the children were provided with coloured pens...

Have just stayed here for a family "Golden Wedding Anniversary" get together. The place was immaculate throughout; it was clear to see that all the staff work together as a great team, who all aim to put the customer first. We were a family of 15, so ended up with 6 bedrooms, between us; not a single thing to grumble...

Great place to stay. Nice beer, friendly and helpful service and great food. The best restaurant in Appleby unless you want an Indian, sonall the locals say. Only tiny suggestion would be to provide natural yogurt as well as the fruit ones at breakfast. Not much to do in Appleby itself but I'm sure it's a good launch pad for...

Never ate here but the lounge was busy with people doing just that, always a good sign. A few beers in the bar where the locals were very friendly. Then we returned later this time to the lounge. Nicely decorated and very welcoming.
