Hilltop Lodge is a beautiful detached timber building set in enclosed garden (perfect for dogs). It's open plan, with a wood-burning stove to keep you warm on an evening, with well-equipped modern kitchen and dining area. It has large windows with lots of natural light. The garden is abundant in wildlife throughout the year, and has a lovely terrace to sit out on. It’s a great base for relaxing, enjoying wildlife, adventuring, or being creative. An 11am check-out will add to the relaxed feel.

The space
Hilltop Lodge is set within an enclosed garden, surrounded by wildlife. The open plan character makes for a great space - light and airy in the summer but cosy in the autumn & winter months. There's nothing like a wood burning stove and the smell of wood-smoke to make you feel relaxed at this time of year. The Lodge is newly refurbished, and has a contemporary yet country feel to it. The kitchen is well-stocked & we provide plenty of firewood.

Due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak, we're using conventional cleaning products for kitchen/bathroom/surfaces as a precaution, with extra diligence during cleaning between bookings. Plenty of hand-wash is provided, as well as anti-bacterial gel. There is absolutely no need to make contact with fellow humans either! It's set up for self-checkout so you can be assured that measures to reduce exposure here are minimised as far as reasonably possible.

All your basics will be there such as tea, coffee, sugar, oils, spices & seasonings. We’ll provide some seasonal and/or local goodies to help you settle in, as well as games for you to while away the evenings or rainy days. Due to its peaceful setting, space and natural light, it’s perfect for those seeking somewhere to be creative away from the hubbub. There are free range chickens, ducks, children & a friendly, well-behaved dog so bear this in mind when you drive in through the main gates! (they aren't in the Lodge's garden).

Hilltop Lodge is just a mile or so from Appleby, in the village of Colby where there are views of the Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales. Colby Beck runs through the village to the River Eden, and there are riverside footpaths to enjoy, just 2 minutes away. Appleby has lots of independent restaurants, pubs, butchers, grocers, giftshops, cafes, chemist and a gallery. Bolton (2 ½ miles away) has a great pub and makes for a pleasant evening bike ride. Dogs are very welcome (2 dogs max.).

I work in wildlife conservation and I'm passionate about what I do. We have a few animals around the place and looking after them, riding the horse and building things (fences/stables etc.) keeps me sane. I take my vegetable/fruit garden very seriously! We manage the garden and fields for wildlife and are proud of what we have here. So the outdoor life is definitely our thing. After all, when you're indoors your problems are confined within those walls; when you're outside they just fly away. After backpacking in various places around the world, I have an idea about what makes people feel welcome & I hope this is reflected in what I've done with the Lodge. Apparently I'm to share what books, music & food I love. Anything that involves interesting places around the world.....Middle Eastern food, music from all corners, and books that open my mind and understanding of the world.
