    “Fantastic stay with very helpful hosts.”

    They contacted us on check in day to tell us early check in was available, and communication was excellent. Lovely cottage that the family and our dog loved. Close to Ulswater, perfect location to explore the lakes.

The property

Resting in the heart of Penrith, a lovely market town in Cumbria is The Hermitage, an inviting, two-bedroom lodge. Complete with an open-plan interior, a decked veranda with a private hot tub, and well-located near the local amenities and attractions of the town, The Hermitage makes a wonderful base for four guests and their furry companion, looking to explore the Lake District National Park. Be welcomed by a shared driveway, where you can unload your belongings and make your way to your new abode. Step indoors to reach the open-plan living space, complete with a well-equipped kitchen, a dedicated dining area, and a sitting area, where you can unwind after a day of adventure with the electric fire alight. While the night away outdoors, dining alfresco and socialising, as the wine is poured and conversations flow, before climbing into the hot tub for an indulgent soak. Two well-appointed bedrooms are on offer, a double and a twin, both serviced by a shower room. On your doorstep you'll find a selection of shops, pubs and eateries to take advantage of, along with the Penrith and Eden Museum, Penrith Castle, and Thacka Beck Nature Reserve, all worth visiting whilst in the area. History buffs will also enjoy touring Brougham Castle and Mayburgh Henge, both within proximity of the lodge, before heading into the national park, aiming for Keswick; enjoy touring Keswick Museum and the Derwent Pencil Museum, take to Derwentwater for an afternoon of watersports, or don your walking boots for a hike up to Underskiddaw. With a wealth of beauty spots to discover, be sure to take in the breath-taking landscape of Aira Force Waterfall, set near Ullswater, or if you're a fan of city life, wine, dine, shop and sightsee in Carlisle, recommended to tour both Carlisle Castle and Carlisle Cathedral. With all of this to experience, book The Hermitage. Note: this property can be booked with Ref. 1125802, together sleeping 18 guests

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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.
