    “Lovely stay, although you may want to investigate possible rodent within the living room wall near the nest of tables as we could hear scratching in the evening.”

    Would have liked better instructions for recycling rubbish as they were confusing. Great location, central to all activities we did. Advisory, when calling out pets are not allowed on beds, it might be an idea to install a stair gate especially if pets are used to sleeping on beds. Garden was lovely and our dog enjoyed it very much. All in all the cottage was cozy and quaint and certainly positives outweighed the negatives. Would highly recommend to family and friends and wouldn't not stay ...

The property

Nestled in the heart of Greystoke in Cumbria, The Lodge is a historic, detached cottage dating to 1868, and was once the gatehouse serving Greystoke Castle. A pet-friendly property with enclosed, secluded gardens, The Lodge is a wonderful base for families, friends, and couples to enjoy a rural retreat, providing off-road parking, woodburning stoves, spacious gardens, and contemporary facilities. Step inside to find a fully-equipped kitchen where you can rustle up home-cooked meals by the warmth of the rustic woodburning stove. The neighbouring conservatory has a dining table for four guests to catch up over an evening meal with garden views. Alternatively, set up for alfresco dining in your enclosed garden; you'll have front and side gardens with lawn space for children to play, along with secure bike storage and established planting. Back inside, the sitting room welcomes you for relaxing afternoons in front of the woodburning stove and Smart TV, before retiring for the night. The first floor has a family shower room with a spacious walk-in shower, along with a king-size and a double bedroom. Greystoke village is a lovely base for your next staycation where you can stop for essentials at the Post Office shop, dine at The Boot & Shoe Inn, take a dip in the heated open air swimming pool. The bustling town of Penrith is close by for Penrith Castle, Penrith Golf Club, and the 13th-century ruins of Brougham Castle just on the outskirts, or perhaps make your way into the Lake District National Park. Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens, Ullswater and Aira Force Waterfall, and the peaks of Skiddaw and Blencathra are all waiting to be explored. Be sure to in the market town of Keswick where Keswick Museum, Derwent Water Lake, and Castlerigg Stone Circle entice visitors from all over. You'll also be within easy reach of the North Pennines AONB, the historic city of Carlisle, and the Solway Coast AONB. For a historic cottage in Cumbria, look no further than The Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
