    “Characterful, lovely clean cottage.”

    Owner contacted us providing a number should there be any problems but we had no issues and a wonderful stay. Great location, with easy access to Eastern and Southern areas. Good facilities within Shap. Local grocery store has excellent range of produce. We ate at the Fish and chip shop and The Greyhound, which were both excellent. ( advisable to book) Fabulous low/high level walking around Haweswater which is roughly 10 miles away to Southern shore. We also drove to Ullswater, again for the fabulous hillwalking. I would recommend this cottage to others and hopefully will return for another lovely stay in this part of the country. All cottage information was provided efficiently and accurately.

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 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 (The Windsor of the North), 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.
