Jesmond Cottage is a charming cottage for three located in Stainton, a characterful village close to Penrith and on the edge of the Lake District National Park. This welcoming two bedroom cottage provides cosy, homey accommodation perfect for a relaxing break.
With a great pub and restaurant, Stainton is a village popular with local residents and visitors alike. The Alpaca Clothing Company can be found on the edge of the village, less than a mile from Jesmond Cottage, a wonderful clothing outlet that's well worth a visit - you won't come away empty handed! The award winning Rheged Centre is a short drive away from Stainton and offers something for everyone; from shops, cafes, a 3D cinema and an excellent food hall, you'll find it hard to leave.
Stainton is a short drive from magnificent Ullswater, the second largest lake in the Lake District. Why not explore the Ullswater Valley from the water itself and take a ride on one of the majestic steamers that crosses the lake? Aira Force waterfall is a must visit and offers plenty of walks to suit varying abilities. Take a scenic drive along Ullswater to the ever popular Pooley Bridge; stop for a coffee or bite to eat in one of the cafes, pubs or restaurants before stocking up on souvenirs from one of the local gift shops. Just a 5 minute drive from the M6 and only 20 minutes from Keswick it really does make the perfect base for your Lake District adventure.
With so much to explore, a week won't be enough at Jesmond Cottage.
