We are located midway between the historic border city of Carlisle and the market town of Penrith. Our visitors can explore the northern Lake District, Eden Valley, Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Borders, making this an ideal base from which to see the historic sites and beautiful landscapes that make Cumbria famous. We have a large garden for dogs and children to run around in, and 2 light spacious bedrooms, with ensuite bathrooms. This entry is for the bedroom with 2 single beds.
This is a large 4 bedroomed converted barn full of books, which you are welcome to borrow during your stay, maps and guidebooks of the region and, we hope, interesting things to look at on the walls and shelves. You can eat out at the local pub or cook your own supper if you wish, here at home, and breakfast is also help yourself. Centrally heated with non-stop hot water it's also a cosy place to return to if you have been tramping the northern Lake District hills or walking in the Eden valley.
All the bedrooms are en suite, and you are welcome to make yourself at home in the kitchen, or in the sitting room with its piano - please feel free to play! Equally if you want peace and quiet you can also cosy up in your bedroom, or have a quiet evening's reading in the sunroom, overlooking the garden. The garden is large - more of a field really but lovely to sit in in the summer months. We like to give guests space, although we basically just take our lead from our visitors.

We are always available for questions when needed so please don't hesitate to ask for help.
We will usually be at home but if not we will always be on the end of the phone for advice and help. Our neighbour is also friendly and primed and ready to offer help if needed.
We have another airbnb entry for a bedroom with double bed in this house, and there are mattresses available in both rooms if you have a child or extra visitor, and plenty of space for a travel cot if needed. Both bedrooms are up 2 flights of stairs on the top floor of the house, with views across to the northern Lake District Hills. We are dog lovers and have an English Springer Spaniel called Bracken.
- We like to have a quiet house between 11pm and 7am.

Hi - I moved from London back to Cumbria over ten years ago now, as I love walking in the fells and swimming outdoors whenever I can. My dream was to be able to see Blencathra from my bedroom window and that is now possible. I have 2 lovely daughters who live in London now, and I live with my partner Phil, who is a TEFL teacher, and our English Springer Spaniel Bracken. Our house is very relaxed - we like people to feel at home here and to enjoy their time with us. We love travelling - we went to Iceland last year which was really amazing. We have a campervan and have spent a large part of the last few winters driving round France, Spain and Italy in search of the sun... We also enjoy reading books - my last favourite was 'The Goldfinch' by Donna Tartt and Phil says his was 'Train Dreams' by Denis Johnson. We also go to a film club in Keswick.
