  • “Two of us spent a fantastic week at the cottage, was exactly what we were looking for.”

    Very cosy, private and excellent location in Glenridding. ...

    Very cosy, private and excellent location in Glenridding. Despite being end of terrace on a three row terrace of stone cottages, it felt extremely private. Parking bay at the back was convenient, as was the private yard. Being 100 yards from the quaint Travelers Rest was great, there were also several small stores within 5 mins walking distance for food/supplies etc. Kitchen was ideal and well equipped. Living room was cosy, we went through a lot of wood in front of the stove! Bathroom/shower was great. Whole property, with the oil-fired heating I believe, was very warm. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

About the location

PENRITH

Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films. Brougham Castle (The Windsor of the North), Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
