  • "Alan and Heather are wonderful hosts."

    They are super attentive, more than any host we’ve ever had, and have created an amazing cottage retreat, second to none. The cottage itself is stunning and has everything you’d need for a chilled day/night in, or to use as a base for exploring the lakes. It’s worth trusting the recommendations in the arrival book too! La casita is amazing for Spanish Tapas! Great way to spend an awesome birthday weekend with my wife. We’ll be back!

    Thank you Mike & Jackie, that’s great feedback. We always try your make our guests feel welcome and also try to be on hand for any advice, recommendations etc. La casita has been very popular with our guests and so handy. No need to drive for a night out if you stay at Hideaway Cottage everywhere is in easy walking distance. And happy belated birthday wishes! We will look forward to your return visit Property Owner

    It was everything we were looking for and more. The attention to detail and the super cosy vibes made it the relaxing break that we needed. The owners were helpful and reassuring that they were on hand if we needed anything, and we felt very welcome. If in the area again we will definitely choose to stay again.

  • "Had a wonderful stay in this cosy cottage."

    Decor is beautiful and everything in the property is of high quality. Very peaceful as it is tucked away from busy areas. Owners take an interest in if you arrived safely and are readily available if needed. Left lovely welcome goodies which is a nice touch. Added bonus is having Sky Tv and Netflix for a night snuggled up infront of the wood burning fire which was great as weather not the best. Hope to return so we can explore the Lakes more and have a lovely place to stay.

    Oh how kind, such lovely feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. You didn’t have the best weather. We would love to host you again and maybe next time the sun will shine for you. Alan & Heather Property Owner

    All the interior and exterior fittings are of best quality, It was a joy to return here every day after fell walking. Spotlessly clean, warm, great shower and bath and comfy seating in front of the log burner. Very comfortable bed with finest bedding. Located centrally in town but amazingly quiet due to location at the end of the yard. We had very clear and timely information from the owners to aid us finding it and a lovely welcome pack. There is also a much appreciated supply of initial wood for the fire and the fire was made and ready to light. Also plenty of tea, coffee, milk in the fridge and cleaning products Penrith itself is a quirky old market town with plenty and varied shops, restaurants and pubs and very friendly local people.

    From the really convenient location to the beautiful and very tasteful decor. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our festive break, the Christmas decorations were lovely and really set the scene. We were delighted by the provisions which were very generous and even got a beautifully wrapped present just for us. The parking arrangements set by the council are workable once you understand how it works and there are plenty of car parks within a two minute walk. All-in-all, highly recommended.

  • "Hideaway cottage is the loveliest little “town house” I have stayed in."

    It’s quiet, cozy, just a few steps away from the centre of Penrith and a short drive from some of the most stunning scenery in the UK. Everything you need in a holiday home is at Hideaway Cottage. A beautifully appointed kitchen complete with a dishwasher and a washing machine, a lovely log burner in the very cozy lounge, a comfy bed in a spacious bedroom and even a cute Hare holding the bathroom door open for you. The whole cottage has been carefully renovated and decorated to bring it up to modern day standards without losing the appeal of an older property. If you are looking for a comfortable place to rest after spending the day hiking or sight seeing in the Lake District, then I recommend you go to Hideaway Cottage.

    Thank you Stuart, what a fantastic review. We are so pleased when people love our little cottage as much as we do. Like you say, The Lake District has the most stunning scenery and is only a short drive from the cottage. We would love to host you again if you are ever back in the area.

The property

Tucked away in the bustling market town of Penrith in Cumbria, is this fantastic two-bedroom, semi-detached cottage, Hideaway Cottage.

Boasting a superb location between the Lake District National Park and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Hideaway makes for an idyllic retreat for a family or three or a couple looking to embark on their next Cumbrian adventure.

Be welcomed into the fully-equipped kitchen, where you can look forward to rustling up tasty meals, with the help of the electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, there is even a washer/dryer and dishwasher available for keeping your space tidy.

Settle down at the dining table for three as you tuck-in to a freshly prepared meal and discuss the following day's itinerary.

After a hearty meal, curl up on the plush sofa and select the evening's entertainment, courtesy of the Smart TV, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

Make your way up to the first floor where you can indulge in a relaxing soak in the bath paired with your favourite book, or a refreshing rinse in the shower after a day of exploring.

When sleep calls, retire to one of two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a single, ideal for catching your rest ahead of a day of adventure.

Awake from a leisurely slumber and prepare for the day in style, before serving up morning coffee in the front yard.

Embark on a two-footed journey into the town centre, where you will find a good selection of well-stocked convenience stores for stocking up on essentials, as well as welcoming pubs and restaurants where you can sample the local delights and have a night off from cooking!

The budding historians will not want to miss the opportunity to get up close to the 14th-century fortress of Penrith Castle which rests within an expansive parkland making for the perfect picnic spot, whilst Brougham Castle can be found on the outskirts of the town, boasting a history dating back to the 13th century!

As if that wasn’t enough, there is also the charming Penrith and Eden Museum where you can learn more about the local area and the Millennium Trails around the town which ensure you don’t miss any of the key points of interest!

Brougham Hall, named locally as the Windsor of the North, is one not to be missed, along with the truly remarkable architecture and grounds of Lowther Castle & Gardens.

Venture into the scenic Lake District National Park, where you can explore the Bassenthwaite Lake National Nature Reserve, home to the Lake District Wildlife Park, an ideal destination for any wildlife enthusiasts in your party.

From here you can easily access Keswick, where you will find a local history museum, the Derwent Pencil Museum, an adventure centre where you can try your hand at ghyll scrambling and canyoning, and the unique Theatre By The Lake where you can catch a live performance.

Those looking to take to the waters can do so by paddleboard, kayak, canoe or boat on the vast Derwentwater, with the National Trust site of the 18th-century Derwent House settled on an island in the centre.

Travel further afield, where you can visit the former home of the great poet, William Wordsworth at Grasmere, who penned his famous daffodil poem along the banks of Ullswater, arguably the most beautiful of the lakes.

Head to the village of Pooley Bridge and indulge in a spot of lunch at one of the pubs or cafes.

Discover the historical wonders of a 2nd-century roman Fort at Ambleside, or visit the renowned Lake Windermere well-known for its wealth of watersports, viewpoints of Queen Adelaide’s Hill and Orrest Head and The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction.

Explore more of Cumbria's picture-perfect landscapes and immerse yourselves in the great outdoors of the Westmorland Dales.

All this and more await at your home-away-from-home, Hideaway Cottage.

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.
