Detached 3 Bed Cottage nr Lakes Ullswater & Haweswater. Short breaks all year.



Updated: 12-Oct-2016
Cottage in Askham, Nr. Penrith, Cumbria, England - Peaceful Location On Edge Of Village Gren. Pubs Within A Short Walk

Short breaks available all year round. When Askham was within Westmorland, many felt it was perhaps the prettiest village in that county. Westmorland is officially no more. However Askham, with its close neighbour Lake Ullswater, remains to delight visitors. Askham has two pubs, an open air swimming pool, cafe, toy shop and post office. The Old Barn, dressed partially in ivy and climbing roses, tucks snugly into this picturesque slumbering village. Endearing 17th Century cottages encircle a village green which runs down to the river Lowther. The Bird of Prey Centre is 1 3/4 miles away. Nearby can be found the River Lowther and stately Lowther Castle set within a delightful park crowned with magnificent avenues of trees.

Notes on prices:
Please contact me for short break rates and last minute discounts.

Please ignore Owners Direct pro-rata rates as this is not how our break prices are calculated as there are fixed costs like laundry, cleaning, heating etc which have to be covered. Ive asked them to remove the pro-rata pricing as it’s misleading but so far got nowhere with them.

Our out of season short break rates are calculated at 65% of weekly rent for up to 3 nights stay. 75%= 4 nights, 85%= 5 nights, 95% = 6 nights. For school holiday weeks our minimum rate is 80% of weekly rental for up to 4 nights stay, 90% for 5 nights stay and 95% for 6 nights stay.
