  • "Accommodation was a perfect match for our requirements and is in a good location for accessing other areas."

    It was very clean and has a well planned layout. The external balcony & garden for the dog completed this great use of space. The welcome pack was the most generous we have received. Hope to get back next year.

  • "By far the best property we have stayed at with our dog in the UK (and we have stayed in quite a few)."

    It is clean, spacious and the owners have gone above and beyond to make sure people staying in their property are well looked after. The property is a very good size, especially the bathroom. There is a large enclosed garden which was great for our dog. The welcome pack was incredible, wine, beer, milk, bread, biscuits, fruit and more. It was thoughtful and generous. Cleaning products were provided. More than you would expect and also full sized items. Items such as washing up liquid, anti-bacterial spray, kitchen roll, bin bags on a roll etc. A nice touch in the bathroom was a laundry basket. Something so simple that makes a huge difference much better than having to store dirty clothes in a bag or suitcase. The bedding and towels smelled clean and fresh and the scent lasted for nearly the full week. Location is excellent. Easy to get to Carlisle, Penrith and of course the Lakes. We had a lovely week staying at The Studio - Charonini and would definitely recommend this property.

    Pam was also a super, friendly host and provided a lovely welcome hamper on arrival. Only 20 or so minutes drive from Ullswater for a walk by the water and around 45 minutes to an hour’s drive from Windermere and Grizedale Forest - a perfect little break away

    Stood in a slightly elevated position overlooking the Cumbrian landscape with spectacular views.

The hosts Pam & Neil were so welcoming and very friendly, we really enjoyed our daily chats with them. The very generous welcome pack is the best we’ve ever had. The property itself is very modern and finished to a high standard. It’s immaculate and has everything you need for a perfect stay.

The property

The Studio - Charonini is a stylish, studio-style apartment surrounded by countryside in Plumpton near Penrith, Cumbria.

With open-plan living, plenty of outdoor space and easy access to both the Lake District and North Pennines, this pet-friendly apartment offers a romantic getaway.

There are two parking spaces, one off-road and another in the garage, along with bike storage for those travelling for an outdoor adventure.

Climb the steps to your home-from-home where a thoughtfully decorated, open-plan space awaits; settle into the contemporary kitchen with marble countertops to rustle up a home-cooked meal for your other half, to be served at the breakfast bar for two.

The space is filled with natural light to snuggle up on the sofa with a good book, whilst evenings can be spent watching the Smart TV.

With uninterrupted views of the countryside, step out onto the sheltered patio with a cold glass of wine, or why not make use of the gas barbecue out on the elevated patio.

Time it right and you'll dine with the sunset, whilst your furry friend is welcome to stretch out on the lawn.

After busy days trekking the Lake District, return for a hot shower in the shower room before getting ready for bed.

A sumptuous king-size is tucked away in the corner where you'll wake up to those idyllic, rural views from the picture window opposite.

Start your holiday by exploring the lovely town of Penrith, with plenty of shops and eateries for your self-catering stay, as well as historic attractions such as the ruins of Penrith Castle, Penrith and Eden Museum and the curious passages of the nearby Brougham Castle.

If you seek the great outdoors, take a short drive into the Lake District; the likes of Pooley Bridge on the shores of Ullswater and Keswick along Derwentwater are two popular locations for picturesque walks and attractions, including Keswick's Theatre By The Lake for a romantic evening!

To the east you'll also have the North Pennines to climb the nearby Cross Fell, the area's highest peak, Ashgill Force and the Pennine Way, England's first National Trail.

Alternatively, spend the day in Carlisle along the Scottish Border, with so much history on offer; Carlisle Castle and Cathedral are spectacular sites, whilst Hadrian's Wall isn't far to walk along the ancient fort ruins.

Escape to Cumbria's countryside with your other half at The Studio - Charonini.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
