    “We always like looking for little cottage type properties when we go away and that's what we got!”

Very easy to find and in a great location for visiting surrounding well known places. The garden is private and spacious with bird feeders where we had a woodpecker visit everyday.

    !! Details and pictures online are very accurate. Poppy cottage has everything you need, feels cosy and was very clean. Very easy to find and in a great location for visiting surrounding well known places. The garden is private and spacious with bird feeders where we had a woodpecker visit everyday. We also had lambs in the field to the side which were lovely to watch. Roger popped round a couple of times and was very friendly and helpful. They made sure we had everything we needed as well as changes in towels, bedding etc. Even though we were amongst 3 cottages we never heard anything. Fantastic outbuilding with washer, dryer, airers, irons etc, but also big freezers where you can store food which was very helpful. Overall we loved this 14 night stay and would definitely recommend and will be booking again if visiting that area. Thanks guys, don't change anything, it was perfect 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.
