  • "Really enjoyed our stay, the cottage was a great base for our activities which spanned across the Lake District and the North Pennines."

    The cottages was warm and spacious for our group and had a well equipped kitchen. Wifi was hit and miss but didn't affect us too much.

  • "The cottage was lovely and well equipped."

    Despite the listing stating no towels, They were actually provided, as were basics like washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets , and a decent supply of toilet rolls, all of which were very welcome. There’s even a downstairs cloakroom, which wasn’t listed but very welcome More attention needed of the cleaning as we found hairs in the en suite bath plug hole! On the downside, there isn’t a shop nearby if you run out of milk or bread so make sure you’re well stocked up. Penrith is a half hour drive away and has plenty of large supermarkets though. Overall, a very secluded beautiful cottage in a quiet but friendly village. We had the added bonus of beautiful weather the week we stayed too which added to the beauty of the place. Would recommend if you have transport and intend to travel further afield for activities, or if you actually relish being secluded and a bit cut off from the world!

  • "The house is in a beautiful surrounding."

    The owner was easy to talk to and replied quickly. It was great place to get to other towns or cities nearby. The house itself is spacious, clean and good for 5 or 6 people with or without children. We had fun being there.

  • "A very peaceful situation and a comfortable cottage with everything we needed; I especially liked having a second lounge as it meant having a tv lounge and a quiet room for games and reading."

    The cottage was well equipped and very clean and the owners were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage was in a very good area for walking with good access to the Lake District and the Eden Valley.

    Ideal base to get about the local area. Great that owner was nearby who was very friendly and helpful. Set in a delightful courtyard away from it all but A6 and motorway only 4 miles up the road.

The property

This stone terraced cottage lies within a courtyard of similar properties in the Cumbrian village of Newby. Stonegarth Cottage is a four bedroom refurbishment adjacent to the owner's home and offers a peaceful location from which to base a family holiday and exploration of the Lake District and the North Pennines. The open plan kitchen has all you need to conjure up a masterpiece, with a dining area alongside.

If your family can't make up their minds as to whether or not to watch TV, there are two sitting rooms to choose from, keeping all satisfied.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms to choose from.

The master bedroom is a double with its own en-suite, while the rest of the family can share a twin and two singles. Stonegarth Cottage shares a courtyard space with four other cottages, but that doesn't mean there is no outside space.

A large dining set on your own terrace satisfies any al fresco dining desires. Newby is a small village, but less than a mile up the road is its fellow parish village of Morland, where you can sample the delights of the local inn. The location is an ideal one as it gives holidaymakers a choice as to which area of natural beauty to explore.

Activities abound with the North Pennines offering some wonderful walks to the east, while Ullswater and the delights of the Lake District are only twelve miles to the west. Ideally positioned to make the most of the beautiful countryside of both the Lake District and the North Pennines, Stonegarth Cottage makes the perfect base for a family holiday to Cumbria.

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

About the location


  • Appleby 8 miles
  • Penrith 8 miles

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. This is an ideal holiday location.
