Kirkby Thore is a small Cumbrian village situated within easy driving distance of both Appleby-in-Westmorland and Penrith. The village sits on the site of a Roman cavalry camp, and today offers a church, a shop with Post Office, a pub and a petrol station. The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland is a major stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway and every June the town plays host to a three hundred-year old Horse Fair. Also within reach is the bustling market town of Penrith, which has a number of specialist shops, sandstone buildings, pubs and restaurants, plus Ullswater and the Lake District National Park are nearby.
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
