The cottage attached to the owners home is surrounded by well kept gardens with numerous seating/ relaxing areas, was originally a pottery until converted in 1999. Skelton is on the edge of the Lake District National Park, about 4 miles from Caldbeck and the northern fells. Ullswater is about 7 miles.

About Sandra Morfett-Murdock

We moved from Cheshire in 2000 with work and fell in love with this beautiful area. Its a great place for our family and our children settled well attending local schools.

Sandra Morfett-Murdock purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Sandra Morfett-Murdock chose Penrith, East Lakes & Eden Valley

We were looking for a lifestyle choice in rural Cumbria and found it in Skelton. An unspoiled village with easy access to the lakes and fells and local towns including Penrith and Carlisle.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is very well located to access the Northern lakes and fells and the local gateway towns of Penrith and Keswick are within a short drive. We have many repeat visitors who love the convenience of the area and the peacefulness of being away from the crowds. Penrith our local town is relatively unspoiled with a variety on independent shops and traders. It has an "old style" independent cinema too which is well worth a visit. The area is great for cycling and you can be underneath Blencathra before you know it on an afternoon or evening cycle ride. Also we have a couple of "open air lidos" nearby - summer only!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely cottage in a fantastic area. Ideal for a relaxing getaway for the family. - Ben and Rochelle and family - May 2013



Our first trip to Cumbria and at Pottery Cottage. The cottage was extremely clean and very homely. The Dog and Gun Inn in Skelton made us very welcome and the food was excellent - Susannah and Barry - April 2013



As usual a wonderful place to stay. Quiet and serene. Will be back in the summer. Sue and Rob - March 2013

comfortable family cottage with everything you nee

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay at Pottery Cottage for 2 weeks. We chose the location because it gave us easy access to explore both Hadrians Wall and the lake district. The cottage has plenty of room for 4 people to be comfortable and is beautifully clean with lovely furnishings. Particularly impressive was a good supply of sharp kitchen knives, something we have found hard to come by in holiday lets. Sandra and her family were very friendly and welcoming and on hand whenever we needed for information or advice. We would definitely recommend this cottage for anyone wanting to visit this beautiful area.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Dreadful weather during our visit with high winds and rain but the cottage was very cosy. Ideal location for the north lakes and handy for M6. Will definitely visit again.
