Set on a hillside in the beautiful Eden Valley, this lovely stone holiday cottage enjoys peace and privacy with panoramic views of the Pennines and Lakeland fells. Standing opposite the owners’ home, it has been tastefully converted from a former coach house. Retaining much of its original character, it is situated in a cobbled courtyard with the original restored well. All around are beautiful walks, with Cross Fell only a morning’s stroll away. Fishing is available on Blencarn Lake and River Eden. Tour the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District and Border Country, with Lake Ullswater only half an hour’s drive. The market town of Penrith with its castle ruins, nearby. The cottage itself is set in the sleepy village of Ousby, surrounded by countryside and home to a village pub, open Thursday-Monday. Shop 3 miles, pub 150 yards.

    Such a lovely place. We booked last minute for a New Years getaway. We arrived and it looked beautiful with a little Christmas’s tree in the lounge all lit up. There was also homemade scones, chocolates and a bottle of fizz for us! Location good for access to the lakes. Really close to lacys caves and Long meg. Very peaceful that time of year.

    A lovely cottage in a great location. Only on a short break, so would love to return to see more of this lovely area. Dogs very welcome and plenty of good walks in this area.

    Had to buy a kettle as the one provided was full of limescale. The toaster was dirty and wouldn't use. The rings on the cooker were not clean and the cooker overall was not operational. General cleanliness not up to a good standard. Not told beforehand that amenities highlighted on the website were closed in certain months. If we had not taken provisions would have been caught very short. Television was a portable and while this may not be an issue for some in October with no local amenities this was a necessity. Bed linen and towels need to be looked at as very tired.
