  • A delightful apartment for two, close to the heart of Penrith
  • Imaginatively renovated and featuring incredible far-reaching views
  • Situated in a quiet spot in the town’s New Streets Conservation Area
Property code: SZ003

Occupying the upper floors of a beautiful Victorian townhouse, this light and tastefully decorated apartment makes a great holiday base for a couple exploring the Lake District and the North Pennines.

This is a fantastic apartment in the quiet New Streets conservation area of Penrith, just a short walk from the centre of the bustling town. The accommodation is laid out over the second and third floors of a beautiful Victorian townhouse; from its elevated position, the apartment has wonderful views over the neighbouring rooftops to the fells beyond. Head up the communal stairs to the second floor and you'll find the kitchen, king-size bedroom and shower room, whilst the dining room and living room can be found on the third floor - really making the most of the stunning views on offer.

Penrith is an historic market town with a great selection of shops and eateries. The ruins of Penrith Castle are sure to intrigue history fans, as is the Penrith Museum and Tourist Centre in the middle of town. A walk up to Penrith Beacon is a must for stunning views over the area. Visit Brougham Castle, once written about by Lakes poet William Wordsworth, and the historic houses at Dalemain and Hutton-in-the-Forest, or treat yourselves to a spa day at the North Lakes Hotel. Penrith also has its own station and there are plenty of bus stops throughout the town, making it a great choice if you're travelling by public transport.

With both the beautiful Eden Valley and the picturesque Lake District within easy reach, there are plenty of fantastic walking opportunities to be found close by. Head up nearby Askham Fell for stunning views of Ullswater. If you'd prefer to be closer to the water, why not hire a boat, or the well prepared can try some wild swimming? You can always hitch a ride on the stately steamer if you'd rather somebody else did the hard work! Enjoy a walk along the peaceful River Eamont or explore the beautiful Lowther Valley.

From the communal entrance hallway, head up two flights of stairs to find the property - a lovely apartment for two just a short walk from the centre of Penrith. Laid out over the second and third floors, the accommodation is spacious but home-like, with stunning views over the rooftops to the Lakeland Fells beyond.

On entering the apartment on the second floor, the first room you to come to is the great, newly fitted kitchen. Well equipped, in here you'll find an electric oven and induction hob, fridge-freezer, handy microwave and useful dishwasher. There's also a washing machine should you wish to make use of that during your stay.

Also on this floor is the lovely bedroom. With a king-size bed, why not indulge in a long lie? You are on holiday after all! The shower room has a WC, washbasin and modern shower cubicle, perfect for refreshing tired muscles after a day out exploring.

Onwards and upwards to the third floor where you'll find the rest of the living accommodation. Located in the eaves, the rooms up here do have slightly limited head room but are still lovely and bright thanks to the large Velux windows up here. The dining area is the ideal spot for sociable mealtimes and the cosy living room is perfect for relaxing evenings in. The views from the living room over the rooftops to the fells beyond are simply stunning; there's also a flat screen TV with Blu-Ray player and HDMI ports for entertainment - if you can tear yourself away from the view that is!

On street parking is available close to the apartment.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages.
