Town: Set in a secluded position in the northern Lake District, the charming village of Penruddock is located between Keswick and Penrith, and is just four miles from Ullswater. This little town is spread across rolling countryside and is composed of many old farmsteads, traditional workmen's cottages and two churches. Penruddock can trace its history back to Celtic times, the name being derived from 'Pen', a Celtic word for 'hill' and 'rhuddawc' meaning red in Welsh and referring to the reddish brown colour of the soil found in the area. The popular town of Keswick is close by, boasting numerous shops and restaurants, as well as offering miniature golf, some good parks, the Century Theatre, a cinema and a beautiful lake. Penruddock itself offers easy access to the surrounding Cumbrian countryside and the southern Lakes, Solway Coast and Hadrian's Wall are all within easy driving distance.

Lovely cottage, very clean & tidy. Excellent well equiped kitchen, comfy lounge with stove (a must!).
Spacious bedroom with lovely view of hills beyond and very big bathroom!
Excellent location, very peaceful and relaxing, a total recharge.
Liked everything but feel a washing machine would be a bonus!

The cottage itself is very well appointed and quiet.
The main bed was extremely comfortable and we got a real good night's sleep each night.
There was an amazing variety of birds in the back garden,as a keen photographer of wildlife I took a great many pictures.
The nearby Pub did excellent meals as we didn't want to do too much cooking,although the kitchen was well equipped.
The bathroom was enormous!!
It is within easy reach of all the main centres as long as you have transport.
The directions to it were faultless and contact with the owner was first class.
