  • "Lovely spacious cottage very close to the train station and Booth's supermarket."

    Well-equipped and comfortable. Very clean with the exception of the blue hall/stairs/landing carpet which was covered with white dog hairs. A couple of things that would improve the stay would be a visitors pack with details of WiFi (the info is underneath the box, not on the back as the Sykes rep kept saying) and what to do with bed linen etc and rubbish (requested an email giving instructions from Sykes but didn't receive). Owners left their Facebook details for questions but I'm not on Facebook. Also, some hangers would be handy. On the whole, really enjoyed the trip and would recommend. A great introduction to Cumbria for our Ukrainian guest.

Discover the sitting room, hosting two leather sofas for you to curl up on as the open fire warms your toes and the Smart TV does the entertaining.

Venture downstairs to the lower ground-floor to rustle up tasty dishes with the electric oven and gas hob, and dine in the room adjacent to tuck into a feast.

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.
