There’s a nip in the air, a whiff of woodsmoke and the days are getting shorter. The schools have gone back and there’s just no avoiding the fact that autumn is well and truly round the corner. But, that’s not necessarily a bad thing as it can be a truly glorious time of the year in the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria. In fact, it could be one of the best times of all to plan a break away, while some of the UK’s most beautiful countryside displays its autumnal hues.
The Settle-Carlisle Railway has teamed up with Cottages4you to offer a stunning range of self-catering holiday properties in some glorious locations. How about a week in an 18th-century detached farmhouse, high on the Mallerstang Fell side with views over the Eden Valley? Or as a complete contrast, you might be tempted by a romantic converted pump house in on the banks of the River Eden in the charming town of Appleby.
