Bank End House

CA16 6LH


Bank End House is an imposing Victorian country residence standing in 2 acres of grounds. We are a 0.5 mile from the historic market town of Appleby. Just off the A66 and less than 30 minutes from the M6, we are ideally placed to explore the delightful local Eden valley.

Set in lovely countryside with ample private car parking adjacent to the house.

Good home cooking and baking as well as produce from our garden will have you visiting us time and again. The breakfast menu is comprehensive providing for all tastes and dietary needs. Food is either produced locally or is from Fairtrade sources. Evening meals and packed lunches are available on request.

All rooms are decorated to a high standard with bedrooms designed to complement their en suite bath/shower rooms. The library, which is the guests' lounge, with its cosy settee, comfy chairs and an open fire, has reading matter for most tastes and will see you happily unwinding after spending the day exploring the local area.

David's expertise in fell walking, geology and maps and Jackie's love of art and food should ensure that you are able to access all that this beautiful valley offers.

We love our home and want you to feel well looked after whilst you are with us.

    “1 night stay, base for walking in the area”

    Lovely couple who made us feel very welcome in their beautiful home. Really comfy bed, spacious rooms and wonderful views. Handy for transport links. Top notch breakfast. David is Secretary of the local mountain rescue so is well informed on the local walking area.
