Why Sarah Tillotson chose Penrith, East Lakes & Eden Valley

We went to look at the land in January 2011 and didn't know what to expect but we just fell in love with it. The lodge was completed in autumn 2011 and we spent Christmas and new year there with our children, parents and other family members staying in near by lodges it was wonderful. It is the perfect location for some quiet and peaceful time. You are only 4 miles from Greystoke village with a lovely pub and local shop and only 10 mins drive from centre of Penrith and 20-25 mins away from Keswick giving you the perfect location for your perfect holiday.

What makes this cabin unique

You will find all what you would require for the perfect holiday in these towns including leisure facilities which in Keswick the swimming baths has a great slide for you and the kids.

Wonderful Weekend in the perfect place.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to enjoy peace and tranquility, very important for my family and I this week. The lodge is perfect, very comfortable and extremely well-equipped. It has a lovely feel about it... very relaxing day and night. Set right by the pond, it was beautiful to look out on....even saw the famous red squirrels running around several times each day. I would love to be here during the warmer months when I can enjoy sitting out on the deck with a meal or chilling with a good book!

The facilities here are outstanding and I will definitely be booking to stay here again in the future. Thank you so much.

Perfect location for exploring the lakes

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in a lovely complex comprising about 10 other houses. Shops are 7 miles away just a short drive from the house. The house was comfortable for 6 people it was nice and warm and had everything we needed. We will definitely come back again :-)

Good value

  • 5 of 5

Unlike many rentals, we found pretty much everything we needed was already there, including basics like foil and washing up liquid. Nice quiet location, nice accomodation, very reasonably priced. Only complaint was the toilet seats don't stay up, but I am sure easily fixed!

Perfect getaway for some peace and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The lodge had everything we needed and it was big enough for me and my family. Plenty of space outside for the children and lots of nature to see and hear daily. Would highly reccommend staying here.

Beautiful Lodge in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here at the beginning of April with the family and the place is excellent. The cabin itself is well maintained and modern and has everything that you need. Everything was very clean and the owner has lots of information about the area and places to visit. The area is very quiet and full of local wildlife, an ideal place to relax.

The location of the property is also brilliant. Just a short car journey to all of the beautiful places throughout the Lake District and only a short distance from the M6 and Penrith.

We will defiantly be returning in the future as the place is great.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was everything we would have asked it to be. Everything we needed was there with some things we didn't expect. The best thing we can say is that we hope to return but for longer.
