About Theresa Peters

Brian and Theresa live in the main house next to the cottage.

Theresa Peters purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Theresa Peters chose Penrith

We bought the cottage and the adjoining house in October 2011, after having rented the cottage for many holidays from the previous owners.

Red Syke House and Cottage are located off a quiet lane and benefits from a very large tranquil garden that has wonderful views from every vantage point,

The Lake District is extraordinarily beautiful and to us is the perfect place to live.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is situated within the Lake District National Park and is surrounded on all sides by spectacular scenery,

but is still only 15 minutes by car from Penrith and Keswick. Red Syke makes an ideal location for single holiday makers, couples and families.

Whether you want to spend a quiet afternoon sitting in the garden reading, or looking out for a passing Red squirrel or in the Spring watching the new lambs in the adjoining fields, the cottage makes the perfect base to enjoy the Northern Lakes.

We hope to welcome you to Red Syke soon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A pleasure to stay in a well equipped cottage. Absolutely perfect. Brian and Theresa couldn't be more helpful or friendly, perfect hosts. Lots of places in the area to visit. Food at the Horse & Farrier amazing. Beware if you go up Great Mell Fell - The wild horses chase you! A pleasure to be part of this way of life, if only for a week.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully cozy and warm cottage in an ideal location to 'get away' from it all. Keswick, Penrith and Ullswater all within fifteen minutes drive and easy to get to. The cottage is one of the best equipped we have stayed in over the years. The kitchen has fantastic views over to Blencathra and the garden which was visited every day by pheasants and on a number of days a red squirrel.

The bedrooms have comfortable beds with plenty of storage space. The bathroom has a powerful shower...ideal after a day out walking.

There are plenty of good eateries within easy driving distance whether in Keswick or Glenriding but we would recommend 'The Horse and Farrier' in Threlkeld for good food and friendly staff.

Brian and Theresa were superb hosts and wanted us to have the best holiday while staying in their cottage. Always helpful and wanted everything to be perfect for us, which it was. Thank you to both of you.

We can not recommend this property highly enough. Definetely worth booking and we will be back soon.

Christmas spent in a fanatic location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Red Syke. Some time had been spent on setting up the Christmas tree and decorations which was greatly appreciated. The rear garden has great views and is like a mini nature reserve (all comments made in previous reviews are spot on). All rooms are absolutely immaculate and spotless and the kitchen is very well equipped. The owners were very helpful and nothing seems too much trouble they took delivery of our internet grocery shop 4 days before we arrived which helped us immensely as we were not arriving until late Christmas Eve. We have stayed at various locations within the Lake District over the past 15 years or so but would probably rate Red Syke as the best for quality and value for money. Looking forward to our next stay.
