  • "Sheriff is a most attractive and comfortable property."

    It is is well equipped with everything you could need, and is ideally situated to allow the holidaymaker easy access to many of the attractions which the Lake District has to offer. The owners, who live next door, are friendly and helpful, without being intrusive, and made us feel very welcome.

  • "We had a fantastic stay here."

    Beautiful cottage and very well placed. The owners were very friendly and had left milk, yoghurts and even Cadbury’s creme eggs (it was Easter weekend when we stayed) on our arrival.

  • "A lovely house - spotlessly clean and very comfortable."

    We were made very welcome by the property owner. For the owner's benefit only - and not to be published on the website - the kitchen bin lid is broken and it is difficult to lift the lid. We also found the microwave and oven to be slow. Otherwise, the house is fabulous and we would love to return.

  • "We had a wonderful week in this house and would recommend it with no hesitation."

    The house was spotlessly clean, spacious, well equipped (including comfortable beds and good showers!) and although it is just off the main road we didn’t find that a problem at all. The owners live next door and were very welcoming and helpful. We would very happily come for another week and were sad to leave!

  • "Overall a nice cottage, clean and plenty of room for 5 people."

    We had a great week and had plenty of opportunity to explore the local area. Really nice to be so close to Blencathra! Short drive to both Keswick and Penrith for grocery shopping. As a group we are all keen cooks and was slightly disappointed with the kitchen equipment, in particular the lack of chopping boards and a fairly average oven. I think a small amount of outlay could make the experience for those who prefer to cook for themselves much better. Also just to note it is quite close to a main road, which wasn’t overall that disturbing, but when particularly quiet was noticeable.

  • "Owners were very helpful and friendly."

    Location was perfect if travelling into the lakes by car (15 mins to Keswick, 40 mins to Windermere lake). The house was lovely and had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.

    It had a great feel, it was immaculate and was an ideal location to go on Lakes adventures. Robert and Val (the hosts) were amazing, even sending on a few items we left behind. They couldn't have been more helpful and kind. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone and everyone!

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, the Westmoorland Dales 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, Brougham Hall (The Windsor of the North), Lowther Castle and Gardens, 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.
