    “Had an absolute brilliant week on the lake district and that was partly made due to where we stayed, Gardeners retreat!”

    ! What an absolute gem of a place, the garden is huge and spacious. Our pup had the best time, he hit the jackpot running round the garden, chasing birds. And the inside was just a dream, it was spacious and so clean. The hot tub took a while to warm as its a fire one but once it had, it was nice to get in and chill after a day hiking in the mountains. Kate was easy to contact and helped us (very quickly) with any questions or problems we had! Definitely be coming back to this place. LOVED it ...

I will add, if you do come, maybe bring like a fly trap, to hang on the ceiling as the flies are non stop lol. We went some where in wales which had alot of flies, but they had a fly trap and it made such a difference! But once again, absolutely GEM of a place!! X

About the location

PENRUDDOCK

Keswick 11 miles; Penrith 6 miles.

The charming old village of Penruddock sits in a secluded position in the northern Lake District between Keswick and Penrith, and just four miles from Ullswater. The village is spread out amongst beautiful rolling countryside and wonderful scenery and is made up of a number of farm dwellings, traditional Lakeland homes and two churches. Penruddock originated in Celtic times, with the name derived from Pen, a Celtic name for 'hill' and 'rhuddawc' meaning red in Welsh to reflect the reddish brown colour of the soil found in the area. Nearby, the popular town of Keswick is the holiday centre of the north of the Lake District and has plenty to offer, boasting numerous shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering miniature golf, some good parks, the Theatre by the Lake, a charming cinema and the beautiful lake. Penruddock provides easy access to the spectacular surrounding Cumbrian countryside which can be explored by both car and on foot, and with the southern Lakes, Eden Valley, Solway Coast and Hadrian's Wall all within easy motoring distance this great location has plenty to see and do for all the family.

Please note: Not suitable for children, outside patio is suitable for wheelchair users as level access. Sorry No tub tub towels provided. Starter wood is supplied for first night
