About The Owner

We are a retired professional couple, who have owned the property for 20 years. It is used as a second home for holidays, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1980

Why The Owner chose Penrith, East Lakes & Eden Valley

Kirkoswald is a picturesque village in the Eden Valley, yet within easy reach of the North Lakes and Penrith. Even on Bank hilidays the area is uncrowded and tranquil, perfect for a relaxing break.

What makes this apartment unique

There is a very well stocked shop in the village, and plenty of local pubs serving good food. A roaring coal fire makes it very cosy in the winter.

Very clean, nicely set out comfortable and well equipped Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I knew the moment I stepped through the door that I was going to feel comfortable in this lovely little cottage, very well situated in Kirkoswald village with two good pubs almost on your doorstep, recommending The Crown Inn, especially for Steak night on Thursdays, great value!! we booked for it as soon as we got there and was glad we did as it gets very busy. The people in the village were very friendly. Totally enjoyed our 6 days at Kirkoswald, we have seen some great places and will definitely be returning.

Easy to get to, great communication from John and a well kept apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and tidy. John has considered all the essentials and there was even a complimentary basket of products should you have forgotten any of your bathroom essentials. I tend to overthink what I might need to take on a self catering holiday but I was stunned to see that everything I could possibly want was provided for.

Fantastic location, only 20 minutes from Penrith and 30 minutes from Ullswater Lake, and the village had a lovely welcoming feel.

I can highly recommend staying here.

Phone reception is not brilliant, but I think that is usually a given for the Lake District - it gives you all the more opportunity to enjoy your surroundings.

Charming cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a clean and tidy apartment with a really homely, quaint feel. There were clear, friendly and helpful instructions left, and two really great pubs literally round the corner, no need for a taxi! There was everything we needed at the apartment and the real coal fire was a fantastic bonus.

One day we went horse riding near Penrith, was a fantastic experience that would suit most age groups. Lots of walks and nice eateries. To be honest there was everything we needed.

Thank you John

Comfortable apartment in convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in this apartment in Kirkoswald when visiting family who live nearby. Very comfortable and homely, with everything we needed and more! A plentiful supply of towels and toiletries in the bathroom, kitchen well stocked too. Beds really comfy and warm. Nice little village with many pretty walks, a local store and 2 pubs doing tasty food, the Featherstone Arms do a great roast, didn't eat at Crown, but family went for steak night and said very good. Pays to book if there are a few of you. Lazonby, a mile away, has a big co-op store with post office and cashpoint.
