Situated in the heart of Cumbria’s beautiful Eden Valley, the historic market town of Penrith is the ideal spot for a relaxing getaway. The town’s picturesque cobblestone streets are lined with an array of lively pubs, independent boutiques and excellent restaurants, offering visitors an indulgent weeklong holiday or Bank Holiday break. History lovers will enjoy a trip to the ruins of Penrith Castle, a medieval fortress that was home to Richard III before he became King of England. The nearby Lowther Castle is well worth a visit too.

Perched right on the edge of the Lake District National Park, the town of Penrith is the ideal base for a Lake District adventure. Just 20 minutes or so from an array of tourist favourites, such as Keswick and Lake Ullswater, as well as lesser-known spots, including Pooley Bridge and Newton Reigny, you’ll have the finest local attractions right on your doorstep. Follow in the footsteps of William Wordsworth, one of England’s most beloved poets, and pay the picturesque Dove Cottage in the village of Grasmere a visit.

As well as being a haven for history and culture lovers, Penrith is also a hiker’s paradise. From this town, you truly have access to North West England’s best hiking spots. Situated in the heart of the picturesque Eden Valley, there’s an array of beauty spots, including the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, historic Hadrian’s Wall, the North Pennines and the Solway Coast (the latter two being designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty) right on the doorstep. What’s more, you’re certain to find the perfect accommodation for your group in and around Penrith. Whether you’re searching for a sleepy stone cottage in the countryside or a swish townhouse in the heart of town, we have it all here at Cottage Holidays. From hot tubs to games rooms to pet-friendly living spaces, no matter what you’re searching for, we have spots to suit a wide array of tastes, group sizes and budgets.
