Brilliant for people and dogs.
Lovely cottage which we will certainly be staying in again. Right near the main road but far enough away, with hills inbetween, to not even know the road was there. The front of the cottage also faces a paddock where you can sit in the lovely front garden and watch the horses graze. The house is really nicely set out. Holidaying with dogs can be problematic but this place is made for it. The owners are dog friendly and have their own dogs next door. The house has a boot room for throwing muddy dogs and can be accessed via the kitchen so you dont have to worry about messing the living room up. The kitchen is very spacious and even has a 'reading' room off it with a picture window overlooking the lovely rear garden and the fields behind it. Due to having two big dogs I have to worry about the security of the gardens when visiting rentals but this place is made for dogs. There is a large, high fenced section for the dogs to roam or sunbathe and then a separate further garden for people only. Absolutely ideal to let the dogs out in a secure area in the morning to do their ablutions. The living room is really cosy but big enough for 6 and with a lovely iron stove which the owners top up with fuels for a small fee. All the bedrooms are very spacious and light and the decor of the whole cottage is modern but with cottage character.

We got a friendly welcome at Glenridding and we were delighted with the cottage and the garden. The house was immaculate and the well maintained, fully enclosed gardens were ideal for the dogs. It's a peaceful place to relax and unwind. We've already recommended the cottage to friends.

A quiet spot in the country for a warm welcome for humans and dogs too!
We recently spent a week at the Glenridding cottage for a family vacation along with our two dogs. Finding a cottage that allows a couple of dogs can be diffcult but Glenridding welcomes them with open arms and the dogs are made just as welcome as their owners, there were some nice little touches for the dogs. There were also a few little warm welcome touches for the humans too. The rooms are all very clean and well equiped. We used the oven/dishwasher a few times and everything was straight forward to use. There is a fire place in the sitting room that was used (it was fairly cold the week we were on holiday!). Upstairs the bedrooms are all of a good size and the beds are very comfy. Due to the cottage location its very quiet so no traffic noise. There is a really nice garden space to the front and the back which on good summer days would be lovely to sit out on. The cottage is a bit off the beaten track with the two nearest towns being Appleby and Kirkby Stephen which are approx 10mins drive away. Both of these towns have a good selection of places to eat and shop, appleby probably being the more touristy with nicer gift shops but Kirkby Stephen has better food shopping options to stock up for the week and also more eating out options. Overall the location is good for reaching various places, we took a trip into Yorkshire, the Lake district and the pennines which are all within easy reach. There weren't really any negatives, the only thing we thought would be beneficial would be a dog guard for the stairs just to help stop them going up their at night time, i guess this would also be useful for families with younger children. Overall Glenridding comes with much approval and especially for dog owners it's the haven you've been looking for!
