About the Owner
My husband and I bought the Glenburn in 2008. River Cottage was included in the sale of the business. We have improved the Cottage and we intend to add an ensuite to one of the bedrooms for the season of 2013. Before we bought the Glenburn we owned a Country Pub for 12 years which also had nine letting rooms and we converted a stable block for extra accommodation and added a restaurant also. We enjoy what we do and hope our guests will enjoy their stay with us in England’s most treasured Holiday destination - The Lake District. We accept one small dog in the cottage. Being dog lovers ourselves we are aware that it is not always easy to leave them behind.
