Garden Cottage is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
A fantastic retreat for 2, Garden Cottage (Edenhall Garden Cottages) is a real gem, located on the edge of the Lake District National Park and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. An elegant and stylish home from home, the accommodation is all laid out on the ground floor. The open plan kitchen area is well equipped and has a modern breakfast bar for dining; the living area at the other end of the room has an electric fire in a stunning original fireplace and there's also a separate cosy snug as well. The super king bedroom can also be set up as a twin and the fabulous bathroom has a large shower. The cottage also has its own parking space and outdoor seating for 2, a real bonus.
Tucked away in the peaceful Eden Valley village of Edenhall but easily accessed from the motorway, you’ve got the best of both worlds here. On the edge of the Pennines, there are a wealth of fantastic walking opportunities close by. Experienced hikers can tackle Cross Fell, the highest mountain in the range with stunning panoramic views from the top. If lower level walks are more your thing, follow “The Ladies Walk”, a pleasant loop through open countryside & along the banks of the River Eden. Enjoy a home cooked meal at the Edenhall Country Hotel, just a stone's throw from the cottage; guests at Garden Cottage are also welcome to book in at the hotel for breakfast. A scenic drive will take you to beautiful Ullswater; enjoy a lakeside picnic and visit the magnificent Aira Force Waterfall, before enjoying a scenic cruise around the lake on the popular “Steamer”. The historic market town of Penrith, with its ruined castle, is just a 10 minute drive away and has a great selection of shops and eateries, ideal for amenities or an evening meal out.
Head into the Lake District and spend a day in the bustling market town of Keswick; indulge in some retail therapy, walk the picturesque 10 mile route around Derwentwater or treat yourselves and take in a performance at the renowned Theatre by the Lake. Spend a day exploring the border city of Carlisle, where you can learn all about the rich Roman history of the area. A scenic drive East will take you into the heart of the North Pennines, a well deserved Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Explore Alston, reputedly the highest market settlement in England, hike up High Cup Nick or visit High Force Waterfall. The Yorkshire Dales are also within easy reach - you really are spoilt for choice here!
