    “Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at River Cottage.”

    Took a while to get used to the traffic noise , but other than that perfect.

    Took a while to get used to the traffic noise , but other than that perfect. One point , when you reverse out from the cottage , it might be worth mentioning that you need to be in the sensor box for traffic lights to be activated. !!!!!

The property

River Cottage as the name suggests has a view over the River Eamont, centrally located in the village of Eamont Bridge which is midway between Penrith and Ullswater.

The cottage has a beamed lounge with exposed stone walls and will appeal to couples at any time of year. Eamont Bridge is ideally based to tour the north Lake District and Eden Valley being located only minutes away from the M6 and A66 almost midway between Penrith and Ullswater.

Winding its way through the village is the River Eamont, hence the name, the village dates back many years and has two ancient henges, King Arthurs Round Table and Mayburgh Henge.

The market town of Penrith has a wealth of shops, bars and restaurants along with swimming pool and cinema and Pooley Bridge offers traditional inns serving local ales and food. River Cottage is a characterful cottage that enjoys a superb location on the banks of the river in the centre of Eamont Bridge.

The cosy lounge has beams and exposed stone walls whilst the conservatory enjoys views across the river where long leisurely walks can be taken.

The garden with patio and lawn is the perfect retreat from which to relax on a summers day, dine al fresco or enjoy a picnic next to the river with a bottle of wine. The cottage has gas central heating and comprises: Heavily beamed lounge with gas fire and TV. Kitchen with gas oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. Conservatory with dining table overlooking the river. Double bedroom with super king size bed and TV. Wet room with shower, hand basin and WC. All gas, electric and bed linen included.

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.
