  • "Lovely cottage."

    Extremely clean and well appointed. The owners have thought of everything and the milk, delicious home made cake and biscuits were a lovely touch! Thank you. We were visiting the area for the chorister event at Newby End and Morland and would happily book this cottage for the event next year.

  • "We had a fantastic first time stay both at this semi detached cottage and in the Eden valley area itself."

    Absolutely everything about this cottage worked for us, from the ample parking space right through to the tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished interior. Dairy cottage is one of those rare finds that has more of a home vibe about it than "just" a holiday let. We are looking forward to returning

  • "Such a cosy little cottage absolutely loved it but a real shame that it’s listed as having wifi but it doesn’t work at all except if you’re stood by the front door."

    Also, the hot water comes on to heat at night when you’ve gone to bed. We had to turn it off so we could get to sleep but then we had no hot water.

  • "What a superb cottage."

    Spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds and sofas. Lovely welcoming touches. Amazingly well equipped. The location was ideal for us. We walked in the Lake District, Eden valley and Northumberland too. We will definitely recommend it to friends and family.

  • "Perfect place to go to "get away" from it all!"

    The only criticism is the WiFi was sketchy so if you wanted to communicate with loved ones abroad, it was hit and miss. The cottage itself is WONDERFUL...comfortable furniture and beds, very clean and everything you need kitchen and bathroom wise, great value for money.

  • "Dairy cottage was situated in a quiet little hamlet and was just perfect for our holiday!"

    It was spotlessly clean and tidy, so cozy and comfortable with everything you could possibly need! The owners definitely go the extra mile, the homemade cake was delicious and the milk and welcome tray was a lovely gesture. The Strickland Arms was just a few minutes drive away and was a lovely setting to sample the local beer and have a meal. There were several local walks that we did - the cottage had plenty of leaflets and information about walks and other things to do and see in the surrounding areas. Lovely cottage and lovely holiday!!!

    This is a real credit to the owners and we would certainly return again

  • "Booking this beautiful property was a spur of the moment, last minute decision and we were so glad we did, everything was so high standard and immaculately clean, the owners (Marlene & Gordon) had an accute eye, for their attention to detail, in providing everything you could possibly need during our stay, they had gone above and beyond to guarantee we had a fabulous time on our holiday at Dairy Cottage."

    Also, the inclusion of a 'welcome tray' made us feel instantly at home as we sat down for coffee and cake (gorgeous by the way) before we'd even unpacked. We would heartily recommend Dairy Cottage - a real home from home in a beautiful part of the country - what's not to like !!

  • "We really enjoyed our recent visit to the lovely Dairy Cottage."

    We used the cottage as a base to explore the Lake District and although the weather wasn’t kind some days, that didn’t stop us making the most of the week and exploring. The cottage is just as pictured, very clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We had 2 teenage girls with us and I was a little concerned that the second bedroom was going to be a squeeze but was pleased to find that it was bigger than it looked and a decent size for the two of them. The homemade chocolate cake on arrival was a lovely touch and there was lots of information provided on the local amenities and area - which was also really helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • "Quite often you see pictures of places in brochures or on website, and when you arrive, you are left slightly disappointed."

    It’s not what it looked like in the photos. Definitely not the case here. I would even say the photos don’t do the Dairy Cottage enough justice. The place is immaculate. Has a cottage feel about it while still feeling modern. Beds were very comfortable too. Normally getting a good sleep is difficult when it isn’t your own bed. Not here, everyone slept really well. There’s plenty of things to do and places to see for families within an hours drive of the cottage too. I would highly recommend the Dairy Cottage to anyone and the same for booking through Sykes Cottages. Would use both again with no hesitation. Absolutely no issues with anything whatsoever. Thank you.

The property

Dairy Cottage is a delightful character property located in Newby, just seven miles south of Penrith between the Lake District and the North Pennines.

This stone building retains many original features befitting a property of its age and offers comfortable accommodation for a couple or a small family looking to holiday near the Lake District.

The ground floor opens into a comfortable sitting area, with a feature inglenook fireplace housing an electric wood burner-effect fire.

Wooden seating adorns the bay window and the beamed ceilings add to the warm feel of this cosy property.

The exposed stone walls are a feature of the ground floor, including the wood-effect finished kitchen that includes a small dining set.

Upstairs offers a charming double bedroom and a twin bedroom with a sloping wooden ceiling.

To the rear of the cottage, a charming sun trap awaits in the enclosed stoned garden area with a barbecue, furniture and space for two cars.

Newby is a tiny hamlet, offering the cottage a peaceful location.

However, a two minute drive is all that is needed to reach the amenities of nearby Morland and the beauty of Morland Beck. Further afield is the busy market town of Penrith, still only a seven mile trip north from Dairy Cottage.

The cottage is ideally positioned to explore the Lake District to the west, with Lowther Gardens only fifteen minutes away.

To the north-east, the might of Cross Fell beckons from the North Pennines.

Located ideally near Penrith between two areas of stunning natural beauty, Dairy Cottage offers a peaceful retreat for a small family or couple at any time of the year.

The charming old village of Newby sits in a secluded location in the Eden Valley, between the northern Pennines and the Lake District. Newby, with its better-known neighbours of Appleby and Penrith, is surrounded by lovely rolling landscapes and is often described as having a special, unchanging beauty. The village itself is surrounded by open fields, supporting cattle, sheep and horses. The nearby market town of Penrith offers a good selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, a cinema and swimming baths. Why not visit the Rheged Discovery Centre in Penrith, or nearby Lowther Castle Gardens and Bird of Prey Centre? Ullswater, with frequent cruises from Pooley Bridge, is eight miles away or you may like to visit Appleby, famous for its annual horse fair and a stop on the Settle-Carlisle railway.
