    • “Extremely comfortable home from home,,wonderful riverside location for Lakes and Scotland ,Penrith one mile away,Ullswater 4 miles. My second visit from Australia to this cottage and hopefully not the last ,Numerous restaurants and local pubs,with a fantastic Superking bed.”

    A TripAdvisor Member, November 2017

    • “Beautiful cottage in a gorgeous location. The river setting made it peaceful place despite the traffic. The sound of the flowing river and stunning views add to its delight! Recomendations: It was only me and my dog for a short stay but for a couple and longer stay it could benefit from a big frying pan maybe even 2 and bigger pan. Hooks in the wet room for towels an advantage. Working outdoor lights for the back garden.”

    Miss Hunter, Bradford, November 2018

    • “Generally the cottage was as expected. The washing machine/tumble dryer made our clothes smell. WiFi was particularly slow and intermittent which was poor especially as the phone signal was also very low. Road noise didn't bother us and pleased the furniture was comfortable as a lot of places we viewed had poor second hand offerings which meant we avoided.”

    Mrs Chadwick, Broadstone, October 2018

    • “Really lovely cottage. Comfortable & relaxing. Every thing you need”

    Mrs Lafferty, Sheerness, September 2018

    • “Quaint cottage very comfortable all you need for a weeks holiday comfortable settee & chair bed was spotless and comfortable garden views were outstanding”

    Mrs Pickford, Spennymoor, August 2018

    • “The cottage was too close to the A6 road and the constant traffic almost 24/7 was annoying and made it difficult to sleep at times. I think people should be warned about this. Other than this the position next to the river was just as expected. The area has some history that we discovered from one of the local publicans.”

    Mr Davis, Sandhurst, June 2018

    • “This was just an amazing little cottage... it exceeded expectations and we walked through the door with a smile and left with a bigger one... We thoroughly enjoyed our week here truly could not have asked for more...”

    Mrs Pryor, Huntingdon, May 2018

    • “Cottage is right beside the road and extremely noisy, particularly the bedroom which was on a level with the bridge which traffic passed over all hours of the night and day. Also not well provided - one frying pan , minimal crockery meant the dishwasher had to be used more than it needed to, no toiletries at all , couldn't even find a brush and pan. Comfortable bed and nice conservatory with views of the river but otherwise disappointing.”

    Ms Fox, Kirkcudbright, October 2018

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.
