    • “This was a fantastic stay! We loved how clean the cottage was, very well kept, decorated and cared for, it catered to our every need. We especially enjoyed the lovely quite location and even visited the local pub! The coal fires every night were cosy and warm, and the fact we could bring pets made it all the better. This is a very family/pet friendly cottage, with everything you need for a fantastic week in the lake district, very handy for shopping in Penrith and all the other feature of the lake district, fantastic location. I cannot praise this cottage highly enough, and we will most definitely be staying again in the near future.”

    • “What a pleasure it was to arrive and find a Christmas tree in the living room! Everything was warm, clean and cosy and there was more space downstairs for our two long legged teenagers than we had expected. It blew a gale outside but inside was peasceful and calm with well-sealed quiet windows. Coming inside in mid winter with dogs was easy with a little lobby to 'hold' them in whilst they had a full clean up! Open views from the windows across countryside, a friendly pub with good food to walk to and easy parking. Fantastic to have unlimited coal/wood for the fire. It would have been good to have some soap and a hair dryer. Service fine although the agent could have sent more specific information about the owners needing contact before we arrived.”

    • “The cottage is attached to the owners property on a working farm. You would never know this though. We were there 4 days and only saw the owner once but we knew they were within easy reach should we require anything The cottage is beautiful with a large lounge with an open stone fireplace and a dining table. We never used the table as we preferred to eat in the equally large sun room, which afforded nice views of the birds using the many feeders and the green fields leading to the hills. The kitchen is small but not too small, and is very well equipped with everything you could need. Both bedrooms are en suite with showers but not baths. We had a little trouble with the second person having a warm shower as all the hot water would be used but it meant for a good wake up call! The location is in a small village which makes for a very quiet stay. There is a pub close by but the nearest shop is a drive away. Keswick is around a 20min drive away but it allows for the viewing of some beautiful scenery. Overall I'd rate Low Garth as very good and would definitely recommend it to others.”

Regional Information

PENRUDDOCK Keswick 11 miles; Penrith 6 miles. The charming old village of Penruddock sits in a secluded position in the northern Lake District between Keswick and Penrith, and just four miles from Ullswater. The village is spread out amongst beautiful rolling countryside and wonderful scenery and is made up of a number of farm dwellings, traditional Lakeland homes and two churches. Penruddock originated in Celtic times, with the name derived from Pen, a Celtic name for 'hill' and 'rhuddawc' meaning red in Welsh to reflect the reddish brown colour of the soil found in the area. Nearby, the popular town of Keswick is the holiday centre of the north of the Lake District and has plenty to offer, boasting numerous shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering miniature golf, some good parks, the Theatre by the Lake, a charming cinema and the beautiful lake. Penruddock provides easy access to the spectacular surrounding Cumbrian countryside which can be explored by both car and on foot, and with the southern Lakes, Eden Valley, Solway Coast and Hadrian's Wall all within easy motoring distance this great location has plenty to see and do for all the family.
