This beautifully presented Georgian town house is located just off the main street, giving access to the delightful town centre of Cockermouth. Renovated in 2018, this large family holiday home which comfortably sleeps six, features two spacious double bedrooms and one twin room. Upstairs you’ll also find a well-appointed family bathroom, complete with a shower over the bath so you can relax with bubbles after a day of adventure. The ground floor features a spacious, L-shaped living/dining room which leads to the rear garden via French doors. The garden has a mature apple tree from which the property takes its name, complete with a patio and garden furniture - it’s a real sun trap so you can spend time in the fresh air and soak up the sun. If you want to bring along your furry friends, dogs are very welcome, they’ll love to explore the enclosed garden. In the living room you can relax with plenty of easy seating, a Smart TV and a modern wood burner for those cosy nights by the fire. The kitchen is finished to a very good standard and guests will benefit from a dishwasher, washer/dryer and plenty of prep and storage space to cater from anything from a quick snack to a large family banquet. However, being so close to the action of Cockermouth, the last thing you’ll be thinking about is cooking and clearing up!

Turn right out of the property and just 100 yards you are on Main Street, the centre of this beautiful Cumbrian town. Cockermouth is very popular with tourists and locals offering an abundance of independent speciality shops, quaint restaurants and coffee houses as well as a great selection of pubs and even a couple of microbreweries. Walk through the town and you can visit the birthplace of the famous writer William Wordsworth, 350 yards, and then cross the river where you can feed the ducks and let the kids play in the memorial gardens. Cycle hire is available nearby, and you can swim at the local leisure pool. Home to the famous Jenning’s Brewery, nestled beneath the castle walls, this picturesque, thriving market town sits at the junction of the River Cocker and the River Derwent on its journey to the sea. Being right on the border of the Lake District National Park, you can choose between the rugged scenery of lakes and mountains or the sandy beaches of the West Cumbrian coastline - you really have got the best of both worlds. Your nearest lake is Bassenthwaite which sits at the foot of the Skiddaw range, offering fantastic walks and views across the northern fells. Bassenthwaite is also home to The Lakes Distillery offering tasting tours only 5 miles away, and the Lake District Wildlife Park which is a great day out with the family only 6 miles away. The popular town of Keswick is 14 miles away and can be reach by car in about 20 minutes. For walkers and cycling enthusiasts you’ll love Whinlatter Forest Park or continue down the valley to Buttermere for stunning panoramic scenery. Applegarth is ready and waiting for your next Lake District escape. Beach 10 miles. Shop 175 yards, pub 130 yards, restaurant 150 yards.

    Our second visit and unlikely to be our last. It’s a lovely warm welcoming cottage and close to town centre.

    The cottage was well stocked and a quick trip to the shops a short walk we were settled. The cottage had everything and more we were more than happy. And the walks with the dogs were amazing. We found the Bitter end pub very cosy and the food great. The only thing was unloading and loading the car in such a narrow street but otherwise it was okay.
