Penny and Dave owners of The Limes Bed and Breakfast welcome you to the village of Colby, which is set in the heart of the Eden Valley 20 mins from Penrith, the northern gateway to the Lake District. We have the Pennines to the east, Lake District to the west, Howgill Fells and Yorkshire Dales to the south and Hadrians Wall to the north. It is a pretty hamlet 1 1/2 miles north west of Appleby. You can walk from the house into Appleby across the fields or for the more brave across the stepping stones of the Eden and along the river into the town. Appleby Castle is now open to the public

We have three lovely centrally heated bedrooms one with king size bed and en-suite, one downstairs king size / twin bedded with en-suite and one double / single room with private bathroom all with their own smart TV and coffee / tea making facilities. Free WiFi available. Penny will serve you with a choice of Full English Breakfast with sausages made by our local butcher and local free range eggs or Continental Breakfast, both with home-made bread and fresh coffee, we ask you choose and order the night before so you get exactly what you want and freshly cooked for you.

Tea, Coffee, Cappuccino, Homemade Scones and Cakes and Sandwich Platters can be ordered and enjoyed in one of the many sitting areas in the garden or in your room. Packed lunches are also available on request. Flasks filled with tea or coffee free of charge.

For Evening Meals there are many excellent Country Inns and Restaurants within easy reach of The Limes, Appleby being only 5mins by car (there is nothing in the village of Colby ). We are happy to recommend and book for you or you can order Toasted Sandwiches,Sandwiches or a Ploughmans from our kitchen.

Looking forward to meeting you,

Dave and Penny Orange
