Larch Cottage (Greystoke) is a beautifully refurbished 2 bedroom cottage, located in the pretty village of Greystoke. Head inside this stone cottage and you'll find wonderfully cosy accommodation for 3/4 people. The living-dining room is just perfect for a relaxing break thanks to its large wood burner and TV with BT channels (incuding BT Sport). At the back of the cottage is the stunning kitchen, sure to be a hit with the cooks in the party! From the electric oven and induction hob to the larder cupboard and wine fridge, everything has been thought of here. Also on the ground floor is the gorgeous modern shower room. The two bedrooms are on the first floor, decorated in neutral tones you'll feel instantly relaxed.

Greystoke is a charming village, easily accessed from the M6 and A66 but still tucked away from the main hustle and bustle. There are a variety of walks you can do from Larch Cottage without using the car; take in country lanes, rural footpaths and bridleways and explore this lesser-known corner of Cumbria. Greystoke itself has a popular village pub, Post Office and outdoor pool (seasonal opening). The market town of Penrith is just a 10-minute drive away and offers a range of independent shops as well as supermarkets and places to eat. In the other direction you'll find Keswick, one of the most popular towns of the northern Lake District.

For those with an interest in local history, spend some time exploring the historic houses at Dalemain and Hutton-in-the-Forest before heading to Lowther Castle, an intriguing facade of a bygone era. 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 try some wild swimming? You can always hitch a ride on the stately steamer if you'd rather somebody else did the hard work!
