loveley cottage in beautiful surroundings
About the Owner
About Sue Calland
Gary and Sue lived a very hectic lifestyle in West Yorkshire with Sue running a riding school and Gary travelling the world with work, they decided to move to the peaceful location of Helton 10 years ago as it was a place that they fell in love with very quickly, as most people do.
Why Sue Calland chose Penrith, East Lakes & Eden Valley
Having travelled through the unique village for many years visiting Lowther Park, Gary and Sue finally bought a house in the village of Helton 8 years ago and have never looked back. Having fully embraced the wealth of activities; walking, riding, fishing and socialising they decided to transform Talbot House and Studio into self catering holiday cottages and have spent the last 4 years upgrading them for the comfort and enjoyment of their guests.
What makes this cottage unique
With the convenience of the properties and the warmth of the surrounding villagers, this place is hard not to love. Do as we did and come for a visit, you will never want to leave!

Lovely quiet place be lovely to sit out in the summer
Nice and clean with good facilities but would be nice to have tv down stairs while having breakfast. The only bad point was the stairs which are little trick and going down in the night. But we did have a lovely time.

Magical stay in the Lakes
Had a brilliant time. Talbot Studio in Helton is a perfect little hide away for a couple wanting a bit of time away. All you could want for, set in beautiful countryside with very good access to Penrith and the northern lakes. Owner very helpful, could not do enough for us.
An amazing Tardis in a spectacular location
Wow what a location was our first thoughts.
On entering Talbot Studio it met more than we could have hoped for,
certainly more than its listing described. It was extremely clean, well equipped and milk waiting in the fridge and a bottle of wine on the side. A visit from Sue later who kindly checked we were ok and had everything we needed. We loved the area, visited the show at Lowther Castle and enjoyed the countryside around us when we went for a drive on the Sunday.
Great place, location, customer service.
I would recommend to all, have already posted something on facebook and been onto trip adviser to leave a review. We have already booked for next year
Great accommodation in a beautiful area.
This property is beautiful. When you first walk in you can tell everything has been well cared for. The house is spotless and we were very grateful for the little extra touches such as milk, tea and coffee, and bottles of water. There are lovely walks in the area and two pubs within 1 mile which both serve lovely food ( Queens Head and Punchbowl ). Very convenient for touring. Our dogs were made very welcome by Sue and also all the different places we went to eat. Would definitely recommend it.
