The A66 and M6 are within easy reach, and Appleby has a station on the Settle-Carlisle railway line. Appleby caters well for everyday needs with a variety of small supermarkets, shops, bus and rail services and varied sports clubs. The M6 is easily accessed at Penrith [Junction 40] wherein is also found a main west coast line railway station.

Proceed for a further mile and turn left for Great Ormside. Proceed for half a mile towards the village and immediately before the railway bridge turn right into the roadway leading down to the Old Station. The Station Masters House is the first property immediately on the left. A 'For Sale' board has been erected for identification purposes
