The property

Instantly cosy and welcoming, Garth Cottage is just 2 miles from Penrith and 3 miles from Ullswater in the typical Lakeland village of Yanwath, with its renowned gastropub just 150 yards from the front door. This pretty modern cottage offers comfortable accommodation for a family or a group of friends who want to get active in the Lake District at any time of year. Garth Cottage is the ideal blend of modern convenience and a lovely quiet village location.

You'll find a tumble dryer in the entrance porch - ideal for getting your outdoor gear dry - then you step into a cosy living room with feature open fireplace and an archway that leads into the dining room/conservatory with gorgeous views over the surrounding countryside.

There's a fully equipped kitchen and plenty to keep you entertained including games, walking guides, a smart TV and WiFi.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin and 1 child's bedroom with bunk beds plus a family bathroom with bathtub, separate shower cubicle, washbasin and WC. Outside, there's a pretty garden overlooking beautiful countryside with a seating area just right for relaxing after a day exploring the lakes and fells.

There's ample private parking provided at the cottage. The lovely village of Yanwath has the finest Manor hall in England and one of the best gastropubs in the country just 150 yards from the front door of Garth Cottage.

Located in the Eden Valley, this comfortable holiday home is an ideal base for walking and cycling in the area but is also within easy reach of Penrith, Lake Ullswater and bustling Keswick with its shops, bars and restaurants.

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..
