    Lovely touch with welcome pack on arrival. Everything you could possibly need for a weekend away. The games room was a huge hit with everyone. We all had a fantastic time and would definitely stay again.

  • "We had the most amazing stay at Penny Bridge house."

    It’s the perfect house for a big group getaway, every room is beautifully decorated & the beds are so comfy, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook, the games room was amazing for keeping everyone entertained & both living rooms were so cosy it made us not want to leave! Couldn’t recommend it more & we can’t wait to come back.

    Hi Charlotte, So glad you all enjoyed yourselves. Thank you for the kind comments, you’d all be very welcome back anytime. Property Owner

  • "We stayed at Penny Bridge House as a group of three families - ten adults, two children and two dogs."

    We were all delighted with first impressions, the house has clearly been recently renovated to a very high standard. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the downstairs lounge, which was also a good space for entertaining the twins in the early hours! The kitchen was brand new and very well-equipped with everything needed (just a minor point that we were missing a few spoons and a measuring jug). All the bedrooms were beautiful and we particularly enjoyed the comfy beds and linen. The family bathroom was so luxurious and the kids loved bathtime in the ‘big pink bath’. We normally stay in more rural properties but thought we’d try something a bit different this year. The house is only a few doors down from the local pub, and a short walk from Greenodd (which was a bit hard to navigate at first as it’s in two sections) and we fell in love with the Bakehouse cafe there. We also found it really easy to get to all the local attractions - our highlights were the steam railway, drinks by the river at the Swan Hotel, and walking around Coniston water from the lake bank jetty. I must admit, we stayed in the house a fair amount since the dogs and kids were so happy playing in garden! All in all, a long weekend wasn’t enough - we will be returning soon! Thank you for a wonderful stay, Sera and family.

    Hi Sera, We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for looking after the house so well. Bits go missing from time to time so thanks for the heads up on the jug, now replaced! We’d love to welcome you back, we’ve installed a pool table since your visit so even more reason to lounge around the house! Property Owner
