  • "My family and I felt at home the second we arrived."

    Every care and thought had been applied, new mattress, quilt, pillow and bedding were evident in every room. Everything had been thought out for guests from fresh and brand new towels to board games, books, dvd’s and plentiful supplies, everything was available and the apartment was extremely clean. We walked into Penrith town centre on a couple of days and enjoyed a couple of family nights out at Wratherspoons local raggedy ‘The Dog and Beck’ I would return again to the same property without a doubt.

The property

3 Forest House is an elegantly-decorated apartment located in the beautiful historical town of Penrith.

Built in 1851 and part of an imposing Victorian mansion house, this stunning property is situated a stone's throw away from the Lake District National Park and is perfect for groups and families wanting a Cumbrian retreat with a furry friend.

Step into a grand sitting room, with large windows flooding the space with natural light, where you'll cuddle up on the plush, leather sofas to watch a movie on the Smart TV.

Then, move into the kitchen/diner kitted with everything you need to whip up your delicious family meals.

When sleep calls, unwind with a hot shower or bath then retreat to one of three nicely-presented bedrooms with a number of original features and high ceilings.

In the lovely market town of Penrith you'll find a collection of eateries for when you don't feel like cooking; head over to The Royal Hotel for some mouthwatering pub grub, The Lemon Tree Cafe for a delectable midday brunch and treat yourself to some fine dining at Four & Twenty.

Before branching out to visit surrounding towns, visit the ruins of Penrith Castle then take a stroll and a picnic in the Castle Park.

In the beautiful cathedral city of Carlisle, make sure to marvel at and take pictures of the medieval Carlisle Cathedral, then for even more history check out the 12th-century fortress and prison Carlisle Castle.

Test your detective skills at Red Herring Escape Rooms and end this visit with a family dinner at The Last Zebra.

A scenic drive will take you to the stunning lakeside town of Keswick where you'll find out about the local history at Keswick Museum, head to Puzzling Place for some optical illusions and art exhibitions, then why not test your skills with a day out at Keswick Canoe & Bushcraft?

Discover multiple areas of the Lake District with a stay at 3 Forest House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location


Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District, the Westmoorland Dales and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films. Brougham Castle, Brougham Hall (The Windsor of the North), Lowther Castle and Gardens, Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
