Penrith lies just outside the Lake District National Park, at the heart of the Eden Valley, and within easy reach of the Pennines; a holiday cottage here in Penrith puts the whole of the beautiful North West at your disposal.
An attractive town in its own right, Penrith also offers a wealth of history. The ruins of Penrith Castle have a varied and interesting past, while the Penrith Beacon, high above the town, is worth a visit for the glorious views across the Eden Valley to the Lake District peaks alone.
Dog lovers and hikers will be spoilt for choice here, given the proximity of both the Lake District and Pennines, so pack your walking boots and man’s best friend, choose from our selection of dog-friendly cottages and get exploring! A Penrith holiday cottage is great for watersports enthusiasts too – magnificent Ullswater is just 6 miles to the south-west.
