Apple Blossom Cottage is located in the sleepy village of Crosby Garrett which is just 4 miles from the market town of Kirkby Stephen with a good variety of shops and cafés. Kirkby Stephen also has a railway station which is on the Settle-Carlisle line, and the steam trains pass through Crosby Garrett over the viaduct. Kirkby Stephen has official ‘Walkers are Welcome’ status and the surrounding area offers a wealth of designated footpaths and bridleways, including Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast walk which stretches 192 miles between St Bees and Robin Hood’s Bay, passing through three National Parks.
With the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks both within easy driving distance, you will be spoilt for choice with places to visit. Kendal is a 40-minute drive, Kirkby Lonsdale, Hawes and Dent are 45 minutes away, and Windermere, Keswick and Ingleton are all within an hour’s drive. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
