  • "Just had a fantastic holiday in the Lake District at Crown House!"

    We loved that the cottage was in a very quiet village, but only a short car ride from both Ullswater (15mins) and Keswick (25mins). The weather was terrible all week, and when we weren't going on rainy walks from Pooley Bridge or Derwent water, we found plenty to do in the cottage and around it. The kitchen had everything we needed for baking with the kids, and we really appreciated the games in the Lounge, which we played on the more rainy days. The little laundry was the perfect room for all our wet clothes and there was even a washer dryer and electric airer to dry everything on. This was also the perfect bedroom for our dog! Although there was no garden, there is a narrow yard at the back, which had a covered bike rack for our bikes (which we never used because of the weather) & although we didn't use it, there was also a lovely bench across the road we could have used on warmer days, and there is a little island (Great for playing with the kids) in the stream at the bottom of the hill. The nearby pubs were all welcoming and friendly - we particularly enjoyed walking to the Boot and Shoe in Greystoke for our dinner one night. The cottage was clean, warm and cozy, and we loved the welcome pack left by the owners with local produce from a nearby farm. We could have a coffee as soon as we arrived! The little soaps handmade in the lakes were a lovely additional touch. We loved staying here, a little off the beaten track and away from the crowds, yet were near enough to the fantastic lake District to enjoy all its beauty. Penrith was also a lovely town, with everything we need, and only 10 mins away. All in all, a fantastic holiday in a wonderful cottage full of character.

The property

Greystoke 1.6 miles.

Nestled in the quiet settlement of Little Blencow near Greystoke, is this pretty whitewashed semi-detached dwelling, Crown House.

Just a stone's throw away from the Lake District National Park and the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is the perfect home-from-home for a group of five looking to get away from it all.

Two off-road parking spaces can be found conveniently opposite the property, with access to a picnic bench where you can rest as you savour those countryside views.

Venture into the property to find a welcoming open-plan living space with rustic exposed beams and tasteful furnishings; stretch out on the ample leather sofas and cosy up to the electric fire; switch on the Smart TV for a family movie night.

Continue across to the kitchen, a bright area containing white fittings and all the appliances you desire to rustle up home-cooked favourites, including a large fridge/freezer and a microwave.

When dinner is served, enjoy a meal at the charming dining table with colourful accents, and catch up about your lakeside activities.

A handy utility room is also situated on this floor, with a dishwasher and a washer/dryer.

As the day draws to a close, make your way upstairs to three well-presented bedrooms to rest your head in, including a zip/link super-king-size room with views out to the fields and an en-suite shower room, a king-size room with black and red décor and an en-suite shower room, along with an attractive snug room that is perfect for the little one.

The village of Greystoke hosts your amenities, be sure to stop for lunch in The Boot & Shoe Inn's beer garden, before continuing to the town of Penrith; take the family around the fascinating ruins of Penrith Castle and the Penrith and Eden Museum, go birdwatching in the quaint Thacka Beck Nature Reserve or go golfing in the town's local clubs.

Travel to the market town of Keswick where you can try something different and visit the Derwent Pencil Museum and the optical illusion attraction of Puzzling Place, before traversing Keswick's Climbing Wall, and making your way down to Derwent Water to canoe through the lake to its numerous quaint islands.

Venture further into the Lake District National Park and hike up the Helvellyn and Fairfield mountains, explore the popular Aira Force Waterfall and the ruins of the once-glorious fortress, Hardknott.

Why not enjoy a day by the seaside and venture to the Solway Coast, or to St. Bees Heritage Head Coast to partake in the Coast to Coast walk?
