    There were lovely Christmas decorations above the fire place and a little tree which were lovely thoughtful touches. A very kind welcome gift was also left for us which was very much appreciated. Well stocked kitchen with everything you could require. Very comfortable beds and furnishing and spotlessly clean. We throughly enjoyed our stay would recommend.

    Excellent facilities with a real home from home feel. The cottage is very well presented and looked after which made our holiday experience extra special and worth every penny.

  • "We arrived at the cottage and everything was set to make us really welcome, including a home made cake set on a stand, milk in the fridge and biscuits so we were able to kick back and have tea before sorting ourselves out."

    Everything was clean and tidy with no shortage of anything. I would highly recommend this cottage and should I return to the Lake District I would certainly try and book this cottage again.

  • "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.
