Why Tamar Ferguson chose Lazonby
Reached by a private lane, the only sound is the splash of trout in the River Eden. Ideal for family and friends, children can explore freely whilst you relax on the squishy sofas in the living room by the huge open fire. There are much loved antiques, books galore and pale wooden floors with brightly covered kilims. Seagrass carpets lead up to the bedrooms which are all individual, full of light and have views across the surrounding fells. The gardens have splendid lawned areas for kicking a ball around. Private Fishing can be booked in advance at a daily rate.

The River Eden is on the doorstep and we offer our guests private trout and salmon fishing at a nominal cost during the season. The renowned Settle-Carlisle railway line runs pas the house and there is station at the local village of Lazonby. The border city of Carlisle is 30 minutes away, Penrith 10 minutes away and the lakeland town of Keswick 25 minutes away. The northern lakes are much quieter than the southern lakes and Ullswater, Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite are all only a short drive away Our local town, Penrith, is a lovely, thriving market town with lots of independent shops alongside the major supermarkets. There are excellent butchers, fishmongers and delis in the town. There is a wide range of attractions to visit during your stay, historic houses, castles, gardens, craft workshops, galleries and museums (there are over seventy visitor attractions in Eden). Sporting facilities include sailing, windsurfing, golf, squash, tennis, horse riding and fishing.
