About Pheasant Lodge

Pheasant Lodge is a former 18th Century coach house renovated and transformed into a pretty self-catering cottage in the Eden Valley, with space for up to four people to sleep in two lovely bedrooms. It is in the village of Long Marton, three miles from Appleby and within walking distance of the local pub, The Masons Arms. Couples, families and friends all love their stay here, with many guests returning year after year.

Long Marton is perfect for exploring not only the Eden Valley but also the Lake District National Park, Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, all of which are just a few miles from the cottage. There is endless scope for hillwalking, mountain biking and cycling, and sightseeing around picturesque towns and villages. Appleby-in-Westmoreland is only three miles away, with lots of places to eat, drink and shop, including the regular Saturday market. The Cumbrian town of Penrith is about 12 miles from Pheasant Lodge and also has excellent shops and amenities.

The Eden Valley is stunning in every season. It is named after the River Eden, loved by anglers for the quality of salmon and trout fishing. There's a lovely walk from Long Marton to nearby Kirkby Thore, with other nearby footpaths including the Ullswater Way, around Shap Abbey, and to local beauty spots that include High Cup Nick, Cauldron Snout, and Knock Fell. Mountain biking is also popular, especially around the long-distance Pennine Way, Lake District and Dales Loop and the family-friendly traffic-free route on the old railway line between Hartley and Stenkrith Park.

Nearby attractions include the Settle to Carlisle Railway whose steam trains run through Long Marton on the regular timetable, Lacy's Caves, Brougham Castle, Appleby Castle, the Great Asby Scar Nature Reserve, and the Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre. Day trips can include sightseeing in Keswick, boating on Ullswater, and visiting National Trust properties such as Acorn Bank.

Pheasant Lodge is welcoming and comfortable for a holiday in any season. The scenery is always gorgeous, and there's a great choice of sights and activities conveniently close for planning a holiday you'll love to remember and want to repeat.

Accommodation Comprises:

Pheasant Lodge is a semi-detached cottage adjoining the owner's home. The owner will be there to welcome guests and answer any questions, but the cottage is entirely self-contained and private. Accommodation is all on one level and includes:

  • Relaxing living/dining room with soft sofas and a matching footstool where guests can stretch out in front of the log burner. There is a TV and DVD player and the cottage has WiFi throughout. An arch window lets in lots of natural light and is a pretty reference to the cottage's original purpose. A dining table seats four people.
  • Well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, electric stove and oven, and a microwave.
  • Master bedroom with a double bed, bedside tables with reading lights, wardrobe and a dressing table. The ensuite has a freestanding slipper bath with a shower attachment, WC and a handbasin.
  • Twin bedroom with two single beds separated by a nightstand with a reading light.
  • Shower room with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • A washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board are tucked away in a utility cupboard.

Outside: Glass French doors open onto a patio where there is a table and chairs for guests to sit and eat, watch the resident birds, and maybe even spot an elusive red squirrel. The driveway has off-street parking for two cars.

Additional Information: All utilities, bedding and towels are provided, as is an initial basket of wood for the log burner. Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome with prior agreement from the owner and a small surcharge. Short breaks (two night minimum) are available off-peak and during peak on a short notice basis. Smoking is not permitted.
