Description

Appletree Cottage

Appletree Cottage is a warm and very dog friendly cottage set in the grounds of an old orchard that used to be part of a farm. Conveniently situated 2.5 miles on the outskirts of Keswick at the foot of Skiddaw and Dodd Wood

About Miss Jude Hartley

Hi, my name is Jude. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I aim to provide self catering accommodation that is clean, comfortable, warm but most importantly dog friendly. I had 3 dogs of my own and found it incredibly hard to find anywhere that would allow me to take all 3 dogs and to feel comfortable whilst there so my I have made sure that my cottages are dog friendly. I love walking the fells, photography and wildlife and find The Lakes ideal for all hobbies.

Why Miss Jude Hartley chose England

The Northern Lakes are a fantastic base for exploring the whole of The Lake District. The properties are close enough to town but far enough out to avoid the busyness. They are set in a fantastic area to use as a base for walks.

What makes this cottage unique

I love the abundance of wildlife that is both at and around the cottages. There are paths up Skiddaw, Carlside, Dodd from the door, a quiet high level road that you walk into Keswick or a low level path that follows the river in to Keswick. The views are breathtaking looking over Bleaberry Fell and Grisedale Pike. At the cottages you have the peace and quiet yet Keswick with its abundance of dog friendly pubs and good grub are only 2.5miles away.

Very dog friendly cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the cottage every Easter for around 5 years. What brings us back is the thoughtful 'doggy' touches, great views from the bedrooms and the bird life in the garden. Our dog loves the enclosed garden and always feels at home. We watch various breeds of tits, woodpeckers and even red squirrels on the feeders. The Lakes is a very dog friendly area and the cottage has information on dog friendly pubs, cafes and walks. Our teen is happy as she can keep in touch with her friends with the WiFi supplied
