  • "A beautifully furnished, cosy cottage property."

    The cottage kitchen was well equipped with everything our group needed for a self-catering mini-break. The property is centrally heated throughout. As ours was an autumnal visit it was great to be able to light a log fire in the evening to add to the overall ambience! Great location, with easy access to, amongst other places, Penrith, Lowther Castle and The Lake District by car. Highly recommend.

    Thank you for your comments, it sounds like you enjoyed the cottage and the local area. We hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely period property with a rustic feel."

    Travelled with 3 little ones under 3 and 2 German Shepherds but still had plenty of space. Garden was perfect for the dogs and the horses in the field at the end made the toddlers stay. The hot tub was a welcome addition to relax at the end of a tiring day. Would love to return hopefully with some better weather

    Thank you for staying with us and for your kind comments. Our own German Shepherd also loves the big garden and her horse friends! Fingers crossed that you’ll be back when the sun is shining. Property Owner

  • "Lovely Cottage, thank you for everything we had a wonderful time and would def recommend!"

    The only thing I would mention for slight improvement was that could have left more toiletries i.e toilet roll in relation to number of guests staying as we were max capacity guests and we ran out just before we left but other than that all was great & would come again, thank you :)

  • "Rock Cottage was spotlessly clean, everything was fresh and pristine."

    We were a group of 4 adults and 4 children. It was perfect for our needs. Nice big living room and plenty of space outside. High chair, stair gate and cot were all ready set up for us on arrival. Would definitely stay again.

    Thank you for your comments. We are very proud of our cottage and glad it was perfect for you. Hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "It was a great family stay and very comfortable."

    20-30 mins to Keswick which was close enough to travel and it’s just off the M6.

    Thank you for your comments and for being our first guest! We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you choose Rock Cottage again. Property Owner

Penrith 6.3 miles.

Set in the quiet rural village of Cliburn, near Penrith, is the delightful holiday home, Rock Cottage.

Perfectly situated for friends and families alike, this property boasts stunning countryside views and is well-positioned to explore the Lake District National Park and nearby amenities.

Rock Cottage welcomes up to eight guests and is an idyllic rural escape.

The ground floor hosts a galley kitchen with electric range cooker, and a living/dining area, where you can catch up with loved ones as you tuck into a home-cooked meal by the woodburning stove.

Inside you will also find four bedrooms complete with Smart TVs, including a quaint ground-floor king-size bedroom with woodburning stove, as well as a well-presented double bedroom and two twin bedrooms upstairs, where you can retire after a long day of exploring.

Outside, you can make use of the spacious rear garden, where you can soak up the stunning countryside scenery with a morning coffee, overlooking the North Pennines AONB, or take a dip in the private hot tub that rests underneath a tasteful pergola.

Get to know your local area by taking a trip to either the Lakeside Inn or The Bridge if you'd prefer to dine out for a change.

Pay a visit to nearby Penrith, where the sites of Penrith Castle, Beacon, and Mayburgh Henge await those looking to brush up on their history.

The market town of Keswick is a short car journey away, where you can immerse yourself in nature during a walk along the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Trail before stopping by Friars Crag to take in the views of Derwentwater Lake.

Further afield is the city of Carlisle, home to historic landmarks such as The Citadel and Carlisle Castle, as well as Kingmoor Nature Reserve and Upperby Park, which are perfect for summer days out, or travel through the Lake District, with the opportunity to summit Helvellyn, stroll around Ullswater, tour Wray Castle, or enjoy all the attractions enveloping Lake Windermere, including an afternoon of watersports.

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.
