About The Owner

We are a retired professional couple, who have owned the property for 20 years. It is used as a second home for holidays, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1980

Why The Owner chose Penrith, East Lakes & Eden Valley

Kirkoswald is a picturesque village in the Eden Valley, yet within easy reach of the North Lakes and Penrith. Even on Bank hilidays the area is uncrowded and tranquil, perfect for a relaxing break.

What makes this apartment unique

There is a very well stocked shop in the village, and plenty of local pubs serving good food. A roaring coal fire makes it very cosy in the winter.

Very comfortable, well-provided, wonderfully located property.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay. The property had all we could've asked for. The location is great too, with conveniently located village shop and pubs doing good food. Also great for venturing out further (we ranged from Hadrian's Wall to Morecombe Bay). And the owner, John, gave us all necessary information and offer of further help if required. We would definitely stay here again.

It feels like home.

Such a wonderful place to escape the city crowds for few days. The apartment is so cosy and perfectly prepared for the visitors. I can't imagine we could find a better place to stay in during our little trip.

Very clean, nicely set out comfortable and well equipped Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I knew the moment I stepped through the door that I was going to feel comfortable in this lovely little cottage, very well situated in Kirkoswald village with two good pubs almost on your doorstep, recommending The Crown Inn, especially for Steak night on Thursdays, great value!! we booked for it as soon as we got there and was glad we did as it gets very busy. The people in the village were very friendly. Totally enjoyed our 6 days at Kirkoswald, we have seen some great places and will definitely be returning.

Easy to get to, great communication from John and a well kept apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and tidy. John has considered all the essentials and there was even a complimentary basket of products should you have forgotten any of your bathroom essentials. I tend to overthink what I might need to take on a self catering holiday but I was stunned to see that everything I could possibly want was provided for.

Fantastic location, only 20 minutes from Penrith and 30 minutes from Ullswater Lake, and the village had a lovely welcoming feel.

I can highly recommend staying here.

Phone reception is not brilliant, but I think that is usually a given for the Lake District - it gives you all the more opportunity to enjoy your surroundings.

Lovely accommodation in a knock out location

First time in the Eden valley and pleasantly surprised the accommodation is faultless bright and modern and everything you need, the village has a good shop and the two brilliant pubs The only down side is no mobile signal but is that bad thing
