Unique cottage, bursting with style, in a quiet location within the Eden Valley. A fabulous base for couples who love exploring the outdoors, with an abundance of walking and cycling opportunities nearby.

This is a lovely home from home for two people, located on the edge of the Lake District National Park and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property is all laid out on the ground floor You’ll find a well-equipped kitchen with a handy breakfast bar that is open plan to the cosy living area. The spacious bedroom has a super-king-size bed that can also be made up as a twin on request, and the bathroom has a fabulous modern shower cubicle. Outside the cottage is a designated parking space and a delightful decking area with outdoor seating for two. Guests also have access to the outside area shared with the other two cottages within the grounds.

Located in the peaceful village of Edenhall, there are local footpaths to explore from the door - dogs and humans alike will love the Ladies Walk that takes you through the village along the picturesque River Eden. Treat yourselves to a meal out - guests at the cottage can even book in for breakfast if they'd like - at the popular village hotel, just a short stroll from the cottage. Spend a peaceful afternoon fishing at nearby Whins Pond or take in a round of golf at Penrith Golf Course. Penrith itself is a historic market town with plenty of shops and supermarkets for stocking up on essentials.

The Lake District National Park is within easy reach, so why not spend some time exploring there? Head to Keswick, the adventure capital of the North Lakes, or visit Grasmere, a charming village in the South Lakes that was once home to the poet William Wordsworth and is renowned for its eponymous gingerbread. Edenhall sits at the foot of the Pennines, a beautiful but wild area renowned for its hill walking opportunities. Whatever you decide to do during your stay, this property will be a welcome retreat to return to after a day out exploring.

An open-plan living-dining-kitchen area makes fantastic use of the space. The large living area is light and bright but also homely and cosy: the best of both worlds! There's a three-seater sofa, a Smart TV for entertainment and an electric fire, perfect for relaxing evenings in. The kitchen area is well equipped and is sure to please the cook in the party - it has an electric oven and hob, handy microwave, fridge and even a dishwasher. A breakfast bar with two seats in the kitchen is a great spot for morning coffee whilst spreading out your maps and guidebooks to plan the day's adventures; then gather round the dining table and compare notes on the day's events over your home cooked meals.

The next room you come to is the gorgeous bedroom, a relaxing room with a very inviting super-king-size bed. This room has a Smart TV, a useful wardrobe and a chest of drawers for storage, plus a lovely outlook over the surrounding greenery. The room can also be made up as a twin on request, should you prefer this layout for your stay.

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. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
