Ideally situated on a quiet country lane we are only two miles from the market town of Penrith and the M6 motorway one mile from the nearest pub which serves very good food and is a pleasant walk away and five miles from Ullswater.

Less than a mile away is historic Brougham Castle an English Hertage site on the banks of the River Eamont which is well worth a visit.
