    “Just returned from a lovely week in Crown House.”

    The cottage is very well equipped and well presented. 2 en-suite bathrooms were really useful as we were a 2 couples.

    The cottage is very well equipped and well presented. 2 en-suite bathrooms were really useful as we were a 2 couples. We arrived at the cottage with our supplies for the week. However we were not aware that only Eco products needed to be used or that tea towels were not provided, it would have been helpful to have been aware of this prior to arrival or enough for the week to be made available.

The property

Crown House is a wonderful semi-detached home-from-home residing in the quaint location of Little Blencow near Greystoke, yet conveniently situated just 9 miles from Pooley Bridge and Ullswater.

The property is an 18th century converted pub, built in 1776.

Perfect for a family of five, the lovely dwelling also lies within reach of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Lake District National Park.

Upon arrival you will find two in demand parking spaces across the road from the house.

Take in the views of the peaceful village green before heading inside.

A well-presented open-plan living space welcomes you with lovely rustic touches, including exposed beams and artwork of the local area.

Unwind on the plush sofas in front of the Smart TV, switch on the electric fire for some extra ambiance.

The kitchen is located nearby and is a bright and sleek spot, with oak worktops, abundant appliances and a dining area that seats the whole family.

Towards the back of the property is a utility room with a handy dishwasher and washer/dryer, for extra convenience!

In the evening, ascend the stairs and choose between three fabulous bedrooms in which to enjoy a well-earned rest, including a zip/link super-king-size that can be separated for your sleeping arrangements, and a king-size; both rooms contain vanities and views out to the lush fields below.

Additionally, on the first floor you can find a snug single room with lovely blue touches!

The family bathroom is situated nearby and features fantastic marble tiling and a spacious bath, enjoy a relaxing soak after a day at the Lakes.

Enjoy a drink in the patio opposite before venturing into the wider area to discover a plethora of attractions.

Greystoke is home to your amenities, including a post office, village shop and a country pub, The Boot & Shoe Inn.

Take some time to explore Greystoke and partake in cycling trails and events from the nearby Quirky Workshops, explore the breathtaking Greystoke Castle and dip your toes in the local swimming pool.

Penrith isn't far and makes for a great day out, history fans will enjoy wandering through the ruins of Penrith Castle and the town's museum, before trekking along the River Eamont and spotting the wildlife at the popular Thacka Beck Nature Reserve.

Travel further into the Lakes and visit the town of Keswick where you can tour the quirky Puzzling Place and Derwent Pencil Museum, take the kids to the Keswick Adventure Centre for a day packed with exhilaration, and finish off the day with a lakeside picnic at Crow Park.

Be sure to make the most of the Lake District and hike the Park's many peaks and go rafting in its vast waters; or relish the seabreeze at the Solway Coast AONB and the coastal towns dotted along the shores, including St Bees and Whitehaven.

There is so much fun to be had with a family at Crown House.

About the location


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.
