What can guests enjoy when staying in the Penrith area?
Firstly, the cottage is nowhere near Penrith! It is set in the heart of the Lake District, 2 miles south of Patterdale at the head of the valley just before it climbs southwards to Windermere (11 miles) and Ambleside (8 miles). Both are great large villages for shopping with a good supermarket in Windermere. Ambleside has a super independent cinema with 5 screens and two vegetarian restaurants, plus boasts many other great places to eat and drink. Ullswater;often considered to be England's most beautiful lake, is just a 2 mile walk from the cottage. Take a tour of the lake on a "steamers" or use one of the many guides provided to venture into the mountains surrounding the cottage.
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
There is milk, tea, fresh coffee, homemade cake and prosecco on arrival - plus useful bits and bobs like salt, pepper, cooking oil, sugar are provided. In advance a range of farmshop frozen meals can be ordered as well as milk, juice, eggs and even a local cheese hamper. Locally there are 3 pubs which serve simple pub grub plus a hotel on the lake which has a wider choice of options. The local shop in Patterdale is just a mile away and good for essentials with a mini-mart in Glenridding just 2 miles away which has a wide range of produce plus an excellent range of local beers.

Thank-you for sharing Stone Cottage with our family. You think of everything – and it is a joy to stay here. The cake and fizz were a wonderful welcome and delicious. This has to be one of the most sublime spots on earth. We have sat out on the gorgeous terrace and marvelled at the beauty of God’s green earth.
