About Mrs C Peplow

Reston Mill Cottage has been the family holiday home for more than 25 years. I took over running the cottage from my parents in October 2014. Since then the cottage has had several updates & improvements. My husband Phil & I make many visits to Reston both to do regular maintenance and to enjoy the area on bikes & on foot.

Our principal interest is road cycling and enjoy riding the quiet lanes in the beautiful area south of Staveley and the challenge of climbing all the high passes.

We live in Staffordshire and run an internet based bespoke curtain & blind making business - we hope that you like our handiwork!

Why Mrs C Peplow chose Penrith, East Lakes & Eden Valley

This is our 2nd home and we like to make it as homely and welcoming as possible. We provide almost everything that you would have in your own home, All of the furniture has recently been replaced & is of excellent quality & very comfortable. The central heating is powerful & warm and heats the cottage very quickly, even in the depths of winter. In addition to the central heating, there is an open fire with a plentiful supply of coal and hardwood logs.

Lovely cottage in good location

  • 3 of 5

We used this cottage as a base for numerous trips around the lakes, its in a great location for this. The cottage itself is perhaps a little dated but it is clean, warm, comfortable and has everything you need for a self catering break, including a lovely secure garden which was handy for our dogs. The village has a spar and a pub within a half hour walk from the cottage.

I would recommend this cottage.

Cozy Cottage in quiet location

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my family of 4 at the end of September. The cottage was cozy and only a short bus trip to Bowness. The cottage had wifi which worked very well and a lovely coffee machine. We didn't use the outdoor space however with a BBQ available the ample sized garden would be perfect for a sunny summers day. Hopefully be back to try this out.

Perfect base for the Lakes and Fells

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 4 nights in this cosy and comfortable cottage and would highly recommend it for anyone who loves walking, cycling or simply enjoying the great outdoors. It has excellent facilities for a relaxing holiday and is so well situated for access to the Lakes and beautiful Fells. Our 1 year old dog thought he was in heaven with all the new places to explore. Reston Mill Cottage is a perfect base.
