Interaction with guests
We look forward to welcoming all our guests and work hard to ensure everyone has a relaxing and enjoyable stay. We hope that people will treat their cottage with love as it is nearly 400 years old (old (so please excuse the odd cobweb – the spiders around here work very hard :>) ! When checking out, we would really appreciate it if guests would be kind enough to leave their cottage clean and tidy ready for our next guests (see checkout information in the cottage).. If you need any assistance during your stay, please don't hesitate to ask (we are on hand most of the time but do appreciate people using office hrs), and if there are any problems/breakages etc please let us know as soon as possible so we can arrange repairs/replace items.

About the neighbourhood
Penrith is our local market town and conveniently located about 15 mins away, - close to the M6 motorway and on the main west coast railway line. Although it is only 6 miles from stunning Lake Ullswater it doesn't live from tourism like Keswick or Windermere. It is a great place for food with lots of cafés, restaurants, pubs, a farmers market, old fashioned grocers shops and modern supermarkets. Near Penrith is the Eden Valley and its many tourist attractions such as Eden Ostrich World, Eden Soaring (gliding) as well as the South Tynedale Railway, the Hub museum & Nenthead mines up in the North Pennines. We are also within easy reach of the Lake District, Carlisle and of course Gretna Green, Newcastle and Scotland.
Getting around
The Eden Valley is a destination in itself and is one of England's least populated and most un-spoilt landscapes. It has wonderful opportunities for walking, cycling, visiting historic houses, enjoying the wildlife and even stargazing. It is within easy reach of Hadrian's Wall, as well as the spectacular Lake District and the wild walking of the Pennines. There is plenty to do even around the village and local areal - look out for red squirrels, barn owls, badgers, deer and many other animals and birds. Some of the fine local houses include Acorn Bank, Hutton in the Forest, Dalemain and Lowther Castle. Why not journey on the Settle-Carlisle railway or boat on Lake Ullswater to name a few possibilities !
