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.

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.

A lovely 3 night's break

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time despite the fact that the weather wasn't good.The lodge is superb with everything you could wish for provided. It turned chilly at night but once I found the controls the lodge heated up quickly.

It's a great place to relax and recharge your batteries and we enjoyed good lunches at The Sun at Red Dial and the Stonebridge near Penrith.

I would book again.

Lovely property with everything you would need for your stay.

  • 4 of 5

Really lovely and homely property. Very spacious and modern. We chose this property for disabled access and was very easy to move around inside. Private parking space was also very useful.

Got to see a couple of red squirrels and had rabbits eating grass on front lawn. Lots to do in surrounding areas, pictures don't do the area justice.

Wonderful lodge

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at pond view for 3 nights with our 3 children & we all loved it, the lodge was immaculate & had everything we needed..the location was beautiful and the children loved spotting the wildlife..we saw lots of red squirrels and rabbits! It's is out of the way, but we spent the days out exploring the lakes and came back for the evenings sat on the decking relaxing, this is a very special place and we will definitely return.

Beautiful quiet site in lovely area.

  • 4 of 5

Entrance easy to miss but once you have found it it is in a lovely spot.

Lodge really good, well decorated and has every thing you need for your stay. Only draw back is nothing for children to do, not enough ground for football ect.

Ideal for adults.

The lodge is lovely and is in a great setting.

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Keswick and Buttermere and Penrith during our stay so it was ideally located. Sadly, the weather made it impossible for us to use the veranda as it simply rained the whole time. There is lots of space in the lodge. It is very comfortable and nicely presented. The only downside for the teenagers was no phone signal or WIFI.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review the weather is a bit of a problem this summer as the yellow thing in the sky does not seem to be appearing very often. As for phone signal I do get full reception myself and full mobile data I am with vodafone but my husband doesn't he is with o2 but he switches his phone off as soon as we arrive and turns it back on again when we get home. We do have a teenage boy ourselves and he just refuses to go anymore Thank you Sarah
