Kay and Andy welcome you to their comfortable and well equipped self-catering properties in the tranquil and picturesque Eden Valley in Cumbria. Originally a 17th-century farmstead, Scalebeck nestles peacefully in the heart of the Eden Valley, just one mile from the pretty village of Great Asby, and surrounded by some of the best local food producers Cumbria has to offer.

Come and relax in Scalebeck's 5-acre grounds... or use as a base to enjoy exploring the nearby Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, and North Pennines. Sit and watch the red squirrels, pheasants, and garden birds... or go hiking, cycling, fishing, or horse riding. It's up to you how active or inactive you want to be!

Dating back to 1684, "The Farmhouse" has uneven floors...

Beautiful period property with a great view. If...

The farmhouse was a true hidden gem close to Appleby-in-Westmorland with an abundance of wildlife to see! The fabulous sunroom overlooks the beautiful garden and we saw lovely eildlfe every morning although sadly the red squirrel and deer avoided us. The farmhouse has a great layout to accommodate the large family group that we travelled with - several rooms downstairs...
