    “Our family had an excellent stay at Blencathra Barn, thank you!”

    Spacious inside and out, well equipped, a well stocked games cupboard, quiet location while being close enough to the lakes and mountains. It turned out to be a great spot to view the northern lights outside, and a perfect view of a thunderstorm from the sitting room.

The property

Penrith 2.6 miles. A homely semi-detached cottage in the village of Newton Reigny, filled with warmth and charm to provide guests with a memorable holiday experience whatever the season. Ideal for families or friends, there is plenty of space for everyone to gather together and enjoy the heart-warming interior that is perfect for relaxing. Enter into the lovely kitchen which houses a breakfast bar for those morning cups of tea, and a feature sandstone wall that wraps the room in character. Continue through to the lounge which has a cosy seating area at one side and a dining table to the other. Here you can enjoy those evening meals before relaxing on the sofas with your loved ones. For more of this, a second sitting room matches the quality of the previous, and makes a lovely place to unwind, with views of the garden and hot tub to keep you company. Follow the stairs to the collection of bedrooms which come in various styles; a double, twin, and a single, each neutrally decorated for a fresh and clean feel. The next floor boasts a wonderful mezzanine area with a king-size bed tucked into the layout, and a beautiful en-suite housing a roll-top bath. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to relaxing after the sun sets. Much of your free time can be spent simply resting in the hot tub outdoors, or you may want to adventure into Penrith renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, sandstone buildings, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. The historic city of Carlisle is a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. A memorable retreat not to be missed.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

PENRITH

Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District, the Westmoorland Dales and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films. Brougham Castle, Brougham Hall (The Windsor of the North), Lowther Castle and Gardens, Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
