Guest Reviews


    • “A thoroughly relaxing holiday!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Chimney Gill is a nicely-equipped, cosy cottage which has been well maintained by our welcoming hosts Tracey and Graham (with help from Joyce). Considering that the property is situated on a working farm near a road that feeds the M6 it is a blissfully quiet location. There is plenty of room for large family gatherings and the quality of the decor is excellent. Upon arrival we were thoughtfully provided with a generous Welcome Pack which was well received. The bulk of our provisions for the week were delivered to the door by ASDA - it takes all the hassle out of settling in! We found the additional fridge and freezer in the connecting outhouse to be very handy for bulk food and milk overflow at the beginning of our stay. Everyone in our group had a great time and didn't want to return home which is always the sign of an excellent holiday. Thank you Tracey, Graham and Joyce.”

    • “Set on a working farm on n e edge of Lake District national park. Accessible by good roads, and not tortuous like some lakes single trackers. We were 13- 6 adults and 7 grandkids and managed to fit in fairly easily. Nicely laid out and freshly decorated. Good solid working fittings and everything we needed really. Family were all very welcoming but not intrusive. Were happy to show us the lambs and chat about the farm. Welcome pack now becoming standard at good self catering these days but a kind touch nonetheless. We all enjoyed ourselves, the kids maybe a bit too much! They'd have stayed in the house all day if it were up to them.”

    • “Chimney Gill cottage was a fantastic place to stay. The living areas were spacious and it was such a comfortable stay for all our group, including the baby. The whole house was beautifully decorated and was so cosy. The owners were really helpful and friendly, and the welcome pack was a nice touch. The attention to detail here was fantastic - we can't wait to come back!!”

    • “Couldn't have asked for more at Chimney Gill. Photographs on websites do not do justice to this house. Great place with everything you could ask for. Made even better by Tracy and Graham who made us feel so welcome. The welcome pack was a special touch as utter wad the best welcome pack i have had in any accommodation. Highly recommend.”

    • “Immaculate cottage with friendly hosts”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This house is perfect for a family or group get-together. It has plenty of living space with a large table and well-equipped kitchen. The decor is stylish and the atmosphere comfortable. Bathrooms and kitchen are immaculate and the bedlinen crisp and towels fluffy. We were given a substantial welcome pack with tea, eggs, jam, milk etc. The location is quiet, on a beautiful working farm, but not far from the main road. The owners were there to meet us and were very welcoming and friendly. To top it all, a pet lamb wandered into our garden each day to eat the grass.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed at Chimney Gill for a long weekend to celebrate a 70th birthday. Six adults and four kids (aged 10 months to 8 years). The house is just beautiful decorated to a very high standard. The open plan living space suited a big family gathering wonderfully, with the added den room off the side for kids to watch Dvd's. All bathrooms and bedrooms are very spacious and immaculate. The owner couldn't have been more helpful. The most generous welcome basket met us on arrival. And the access given to the farm to the kids made their weekend. We had a superb weekend and would heartily recommend a visit to others.”

    • “An absolutely beautifully looked after cottage with wonderfully spacious rooms and surrounded by fabulous walks.”

    Miss Durham, Windsor, August 2015

    • “The accommodation was blissfully quiet and in an ideal location for travelling to places in The Lakes, Northumberland or even the Borders of Scotland. The owners were particularly thoughtful, helpful and friendly.”

    Mr Wigglesworth, Newcastle Upon Tyne, July 2015

    • “Chimney Gill was a beautiful cottage which we couldn't fault at all. The owners made us all feel welcome and the children got to feed a lamb. Overall space for the number of guests was excellent and we would certainly recommend.”

    Mrs Bolan, Preston, May 2015

    • “Chimney Gill is a wonderful place to stay and easily accommodates twelve. We had six adults and six children and never felt like we were in each others way when cooking or relaxing. All the amenities and the games that are there even gave us something to do on a rainy day and the use of the spa in Penrith is fantastic for such days too. We would all heartily recommend. The garden gave us room to have a games of rounders and cricket. The children made good use of the garden at the end of every day. Overall it is a great place to stay with the lakes in easy access.”

    Mr Smith, Beverley, August 2014

    • “It really was a lovely cottage with excellent facilities. It was a family break for 12 of us including 3 pre school children and a baby and everything you would need was catered for. The children loved the little fenced in garden which was safe for them to play in, they especially loved looking at the animals and sitting on the farmers tractor. A real family home from home.”

    Mrs Dodson, Lincoln, May 2014

    • “This was a superb holiday let, it suited our needs exactly. The property was exactly as described, fully prepared even to a bouquet of flowers and basic foodstuffs. The three families had ample room to play etc. The farm was extremely accommodating towards the children with new lambs and tractor rides. We certainly would recommend it to others.”

About the location


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.
