  • "This was a lovely cottage the garden was lovely as it was east/west so sun all day and we also had very good weather."

    The only thing I would comment on are the air fresheners in the kitchen and the lounge which to me were overpowering.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Poppy Cottage."

    The cottage itself was perfect for our stay in a wet October. The wood burner made our evenings very cosy and the cottage was furnished for a home from home stay. The owners were on hand if needed but the property was also very private. The views of fields and private garden space perfect.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful spacious character cottage."

    It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything we needed. We loved the open views of the fields with the sheep grazing and the private garden with patio area. The owners Roger and Val were very friendly and helpful and the welcome goodies were very much appreciated. It is in a great location with walks on the doorstep and only a short drive away from Keswick, Ulswater Lake, Pooley Bridge etc. This is the best cottage we have stayed in and would highly recommend.

The property

Poppy Cottage is a beautifully converted one bedroom holiday home in the northern Lake District just 10 minutes' drive from the bustling town of Penrith, the 'gateway to the Lakes'. Built from local stone and finished to an extremely high standard, Poppy Cottage marries period charm with contemporary luxury and is the ideal romantic retreat from which to explore this spellbinding part of the world. At the end of a row of three cottages, Poppy Cottage has bags of character like the original beams and the wood burning stove set in the feature fireplace of the living room.

There's squashy seating to curl up in front of the fire and superb views over the surrounding countryside.

You can access the private patio and garden from the French windows.

The Shaker style dining kitchen is fully equipped and upstairs there's a boutique hotel style double bedroom with en-suite luxury shower room and, of course, those gorgeous views. Outside there's a really lovely private garden with a patio area, lawn and beautiful planting - the ideal spot to relax after a busy day hiking, cycling or simply sightseeing.

Poppy Cottage also has private off road parking and there's a large enclosed paddock with picnic tables and a shared BBQ.

You'll also have access to the fully equipped laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer plus ample space for drying all your outdoor gear. Penruddock is conveniently located just a few miles off the M6 and there are two pubs within a mile of the cottage.

Just 10 minutes drive away there's shopping, bars and restaurants at Penrith and the tranquil Caldbeck fells are almost on the doorstep if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the Lake District. But with Lake Ullswater and the beautiful town of Keswick just 15 minutes away, you're in the ideal position to explore the stunning scenery of the North Lakes with some of the most outstanding hiking and cycling trails in the country.

Climb the stairs to the Bowder Stone, or test yourself against the Keswick climbing wall.

Cruise the lakes on one of the steamers or visit the Lake District Distillery and sample world-class Lakeland whisky.

If you want to see the beauties of the Southern Lakes, take a drive over the scenic Kirkstone Pass to Lake Windermere. However you decide to enjoy your romantic break in the Lake District, Poppy Cottage makes the perfect retreat at any time of year.

£25 per week charge for use of the electric charging point. Paid locally if required.

About the location


Keswick 11 miles; Penrith 6 miles.

The charming old village of Penruddock sits in a secluded position in the northern Lake District between Keswick and Penrith, and just four miles from Ullswater. The village is spread out amongst beautiful rolling countryside and wonderful scenery and is made up of a number of farm dwellings, traditional Lakeland homes and two churches. Penruddock originated in Celtic times, with the name derived from Pen, a Celtic name for 'hill' and 'rhuddawc' meaning red in Welsh to reflect the reddish brown colour of the soil found in the area. Nearby, the popular town of Keswick is the holiday centre of the north of the Lake District and has plenty to offer, boasting numerous shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering miniature golf, some good parks, the Theatre by the Lake, a charming cinema and the beautiful lake. Penruddock provides easy access to the spectacular surrounding Cumbrian countryside which can be explored by both car and on foot, and with the southern Lakes, Eden Valley, Solway Coast and Hadrian's Wall all within easy motoring distance this great location has plenty to see and do for all the family.
