    The cottage was immaculately clean upon arrival, lovely and warm, and nice and spacious for 6 people. There was plenty tableware and cookware, and lots of storage space in the kitchen and bedrooms. We really didn't have many complaints - the only slight problems were that the fridge is quite small for 6 people, and the shared bathroom was also a little difficult. The gas fire in the living room created a lovely atmosphere, but made some strange noises when it was windy! Julie dropped in to say hi and was really friendly and helpful. She let us know about local walks and attractions and how to get there, and showed some of our group the animals on her working farm. Although the cottage is attached to the family home, we really didn't notice that there were other people nearby as it felt really private and peaceful. I would definitely recommend Woodhead Farm Cottage to other groups or a family.

The property

A pretty sandstone cottage set amidst the abounding countryside in the small village of Catterlen.

A cosiness welcomes you and your family and friends into the cottage through the utility with plenty of space to hang your coats and store your boots, which then leads through to the open-plan kitchen; well-appointed to ensure you have everything you need to prepare and cook a hearty meal.

Walking from the kitchen leads you through a lovely hallway with a characterful window and exposed wooden beam resting over, dating back to when the property once housed the farm horses.

The hallway takes you into the sitting room which hosts a formal dining table for you to enjoy evening pleasantries in style.

Relax on the luxurious sofas that crowd around the gas fire, where you can exchange stories and plan for the days ahead or simply enjoy a good film together.

Step out from the kitchen into the delightful courtyard which is bordered by beautiful sandstone of vivid shades, taken over by nature to bring bursts of inviting colour.

Breathe in the cool air as you feel the gravel beneath your feet; you will be overjoyed by the verdant pastures surrounding the cottage, simply take a seat on the patio and soak it all up.

As the last of the day's sun begins to fade over the rolling landscape of the Cumbrian countryside, find yourselves a place to rest your head with three lovely bedrooms to choose from upstairs.

Head to Penrith of an evening where you can enjoy a nice meal at one of its excellent pubs or restaurants.

During the day, the sandstone buildings hide some intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive gardens and shops to explore.

Penrith also offers a museum and Millennium Trails for those historians among you.

The bustling town of Keswick, Brougham Castle, Long Meg and her daughters and the city of Carlisle are all within short distance.

The stunning beauty of the Lake District and the bountiful landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales are right on the doorstep, ideal for walkers, climbers and cyclists alike.

Woodhead Farm Cottage is a wonderful base from which to explore this spectacular region of Cumbria.

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.
