Myself hubby and dog had a lovely chilled time at turnip cottage which came at exactly the right time as we went back into lockdown when we got home. The cottage is well equipped and cozy but had ample space for all 3 of us and the bath in the bedroom is lovely for a touch of luxury. The pub in the village was warm and friendly and we had some lovely walls with our dog both locally and in the Lake District which is about 50 mins drive away. I would definitely recommend for anyone wanting nice accommodation but also to chill out and unwind.

Great little cottage. Quiet and peaceful and super clean. Great Asby is a nice relaxing village with lots of local walks, and not far from Appleby if required. Would stay again and highly recommended

We had a lovely holiday at Turnip Cottage. Highlights include: - Walking in the Lake District just a short (and picturesque) drive away - Slipper bath and skylights in the bedroom - Underfloor heating in the bathroom - Village location in the moors (you wouldn’t even know the village existed!) - Farm shop (Tebay Services) nearby with a fantastic selection of local produce - Very friendly and welcoming pub In terms of Covid-19 we felt very safe. Steve also sent over a detailed and thoughtful welcome pack in advance which also included walk recommendations.

Beautiful cottage, we loved the house, weather was atrocious, comically bad but still had a great time

29 Sep - 1 Oct 2020

Great little rural retreat. Good acess to plenty of places including the lakes. Pub nearby and 15/20 mins from Appleby. Had everything needed for a self sufficient stay if needed.

27 Sep - 29 Sep 2020

Lovely 2 night stay. Booked last minute. Totally blown away by the cottage.... from the quaint pretty secluded location to the finishing touches like candles in the bedroom by the bath....i couldn’t fault our stay! Also worth adding that the photographs don’t do the place justice! Much bigger in person :-)

25 Sep - 27 Sep 2020

Wonderful, thank you.

21 Sep - 24 Sep 2020

The pictures don’t do justice to how lovely this cottage is. Heaps of space and all finished to a high standard. Everything you could need for a break away. The village is gorgeous and look like time has stood still. Good access to the lakes and the A66 for heaps of day time trips. Would thoroughly recommend and we will certainly be back.

12 Aug - 14 Aug 2020

We had a brilliant stay....hopefully we can be back to visit soon! We would recommended trying some of the local walks and visiting the nearby limestone pavement. Thanks again to Steve and Debbie!

This place goes above the expectations of an Airbnb property! It is the standard of a top class boutique hotel. Stylish, contemporary and classy. The bath in the bedroom is just idyllic. You won’t get better hosts than Steve and Debbie. They are just brilliant at what they do. They know exactly how to run a holiday let and they think of everything! Little touches such as having the lights on for your arrival and fresh flowers. Outstanding facilities and you will want for nothing in the kitchen. A beautiful outdoor area to sit and have a glass of wine and although ‘shared’ with the cottage next door it still feels very private (and actually is lovely to have quick chats and the odd hello.)We had an amazing stay and will definitely be booking again.

We absolutely cannot fault our stay. A welcome pack was provided, and was hugely appreciated, as we could see how much work and detail had been put into it. The property itself was beautiful, and we could clearly see how much effort had been put in, to ensure that it was cosy and homely. The hand sanitiser provided was a very considerate touch, given the current COVID-19 circumstances and the cleanliness of the property was outstanding. Although a face to face greeting couldn’t take place, we really appreciated the socially distanced greeting we received upon our arrival. Thank you to the owners of the property, your hospitality made our holiday!

26 Jul - 28 Jul 2020

Beautiful modern cottage. Well designed, stylish, excellent kitchen, fast internet, lovely location. Would look forward to returning here

23 Jul - 26 Jul 2020

Great place, pictures do not do it justice.

19 Jul - 22 Jul 2020

Fantastic accommodation Fantastic setting

16 Jul - 19 Jul 2020

Great cosy place with everything we needed! The hosts sent over a lovely information pack with walks around the surrounding area, which was greatly appreciated. Would definitely come back to stay again.

8 Jul - 15 Jul 2020

Turnip House is a well presented cottage in a beautiful area. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The shower is excellent with underfloor heating in the bathroom. The cottage does adjoin another larger cottage and some of the occupants towards the end of our stay were quite noisy. However, we still had a lovely stay and enjoyed lots of great walks with our dog in the surrounding area and further afield. The communication with the host was excellent. I would definitely recommend this cottage.

20 Feb - 23 Feb 2020

Turnip House is a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District or the North Pennines. We enjoyed a very wet and windy long weekend in February and Turnip House was a warm and welcoming place to come back to at the end of the day. Steve was on hand to welcome us and give us some tips for places to eat and explore. We would definitely come back again for another visit.

30 Jan - 1 Feb 2020

Just returned from a fabulous few days at Turnip House. The cottage exceeded my expectations and the photos really do not do it justice. The cottage is warm, cosy and spacious whilst also being spotlessly clean. The bath in the bedroom was just perfect and the tea lights thoughtfully provided meant most evenings were spent soaking in a deep candlelit bath looking up at the stars through the skylights. Steve was a fantastic host welcoming me and my dog and even accommodating an additional nights stay and late check out. The weather may have been miserable but our stay was perfect, just what was needed. We will most definitely be back.

17 Jan - 19 Jan 2020

Very clean, comfortable, stylish space. Love the special touches- of the place and the views! Had everything I needed and really was great for a relaxing weekend

9 Oct - 11 Oct 2020

24 Aug - 28 Aug 2020

A warm and welcoming modern cottage which is ideally located for a family get away.

21 Aug - 23 Aug 2020

Great cottage, spotless with all you need. Based in a gorgeous part of the world with a fab pub a short stroll away. Steve was excellent with his communication and would recommend the property and location to all.

17 Aug - 19 Aug 2020

Stunning cottage in a peaceful location with everything you need for a short stay or holiday.

17 Jul - 19 Jul 2020

A beautifully designed cottage with superb cleanliness. Steve was quick to reply and very helpful with everything we needed. Would 100% recommend staying here and would re visit this fantastic part of Cumbria.

13 Jul - 16 Jul 2020
