You will find plenty of space for everyone.

A bedroom with en-suite can be found on the ground floor perfect for anyone not wanting to venture up the stairs. The other four of the five bedrooms are located upstairs two with en-suites and the family bathroom.\nEnjoy the country walks on your doorstep or venture out and explore the area you are only 15 minutes from Penrith and 25 minutes from Ullswater.
