Ravenbridge is an exquisite place of beauty and tranquillity. We invite you to come and stay; make the house and grounds your home for a week or two of blissful holiday, retreat, family reunion, conference or activity break.
This 17th century house is fully modernised whilst keeping its traditional character. There are awe inspiring views from every window. It is set in 21 acres of orchard, woodlands and fields with its own lake, woodland sauna and two rivers running through the site for you to enjoy. This is a rich playground for wild life, children and adults. Wild swimming, boating, camp fires along with pool and table tennis are among favourite activities at Ravenbridge. Set in the Eden Valley, 13 miles east of Penrith there are plentiful places of local interest to visit along with great local pubs for food and drink. There are gentle local walks along the River Raven and into the fells. The Lake District is 30 minutes drive from the house.
Ravenbridge is an evolving ecological journey. The site was an old corn mill harnessing power from the river Raven. Currently powered by solar, bio mass and photo voltaic Ravenbridge prides itself with a low carbon footprint. There is an abundance of local produce at the village store and eggs from our own chickens.
