Just show me Penrith Cottages

Fancy exploring the scenic landscapes of the northern Lakes and the rolling Pennines? Our Penrith cottages could be just what you're looking for.

Once capital of Cumbria, this thriving market town offers an excellent choice of attractions and amenities. First stop the local tourist office-cum-museum for themed walking leaflets - try the Millennium or Richard III Trails - and an insight into the life of 'the Monocled Mutineer', Percy Toplis. Discover elegant sandstone buildings, quiet backwaters and specialist shops including fudge and toffee, all kinds of books and a fine food emporium. Browse local art, pottery workshops and call in at the Lilliput Lane Visitor Centre. Explore the ruins of Penrith Castle. Break for refreshments in a traditional watering hole, cafe or restaurant; then burn off calories with a walk to the top of Penrith Beacon. Theatre, cinema, live music - there's a variety of evening entertainment too.

Family time at your Penrith cottage

Spend a fun-filled day at Rheged, a huge, grass-covered building in disguise as a Lakeland hill. 3D cinema, pottery painting, indoor and outdoor play areas, as well as a collection of inviting shops, it's fantastic for families. Or pay a visit to Winderwath Gardens and enjoy a picnic by the pond.

Other nearby attractions include Brougham Castle, protected by English Heritage and offering panoramic views from the top of the keep. Also Mayburgh Henge and King Arthur's Round Table, two examples providing strong evidence of the region's pre-historic occupation. And, of course, with all that amazing countryside on your Penrith cottage doorstep, it's always a good idea to pack boots!
