  • Daryl

    “Loved the views and location and garden but very disappointed to find no washing machine as it was pretty muddy on the fells and left me needing to go to a laundrette.”

    It wasnt too much of a problem for me in April but not sure I would be happy with the heating on offer during a cold spell. Why arent the radiators being used?

    Dear Daryl, Thank you for your feedback. To avoid disappointment, the cottage is advertised without washing machine on Sykes website. Therefore I am surprised you were expecting to find one. If you believe the property write-up was misleading in any way, please let me know and I will correct it. Regarding the heating: there are high efficiency electric radiators in every room, plus spare, if required. I have used the property in winter and can confirm the heating is adequate. Also, I have not received remarks from guests that stayed at the cottage during winter months. As described in the Guests Booklet, the other set of wall-mounted radiators is powered by hot water from the log burner. They are a historic feature of the cottage and are not very practical to use, as to get them hot the fire in the log burner has to be well established. I do not advise using them. Property Owner

About the location


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.
