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.Read more

The cottage is located in a quiet secluded part of the village. Cooage was clean and homely. Kitchen was well equiped and I was able to cook without any hassle. We ate at the local Inns and I enjoyed The Sportsman's food and Jennings ale.
We enjoyed the seclusion and quiet as we were ready for a rest, but amenities were close enough for nice days out exploring.
The only thing I was disappointed with was the bathroom. It is in need of refurbishing.The log burner was a novelty, and we soon had the cottage snug and warm.

Well appointed and comfortable cottage which was very well equipped (only grumble was a lack of good sharp knives) and well furnished. The weather during our stay was wild, cold and wet but we were toasty inside with a combination of electric heating, topped up by a solid fuel stove in the living room. We have rented many cottages over the years and reckon this was the best for location, views, comfort and warmth!
Great location, great place-enjoyed the whole experience.

The location with the view was lovely.The accomodation was cosy, clean and warm. We were lucky with the weather so sitting out in the garden was a real bonus. Enjoyed the walks and the scenery and had a thoroughly great time.

We have stayed here before and will be coming back every year. The cottage is situated in an ideal location and is central to all of the lakes and villages. Lots to do and see. Excellent facilities at the cottage, clean and well maintained. Its got everything you would need which makes it home from home but with better views and weather.

We collected the key as advised by the owners
The cottage was lovely, settees a bit low
as i have difficulty with mobility it meant driving to to shops and the local pub, thats what made our holiday less enjoyable, the views were spectacular but the cottage was a bit too remote for us.We would recommend it to fit able bodied friends and relations.

The cottage was lovely and characterful, but with all mod cons, fantastic views at the front, beautiful cottage garden at the back, peaceful, wish we lived there! Ideal place for access to the Lakes and surrounding areas, also easy to reach Carlisle.

The cottage is in a wonderfully peaceful spot, with lovely views across fields to Mell Fell. A nearby footpath crosses a couple of fields to the pub and bus stop in the centre of the village. Penruddock is about 4 miles from the southern end of Ullswater, but more driving is involved to reach the heart of the Lake District and the high fells. However, the lanes around Penruddock are quiet and peaceful, away from the crowds, and it is well located for less frequented walks. We made good use of the excellent bus service to Penrith and to Keswick and beyond, (free for us now we have reached 60!)
The cottage is well equipped and furnished, with a new kitchen, including dishwasher, and large fridge-freezer. TV reception is limited, due to the location. Bedrooms smallish, but very comfortable, with great views. The bathroom is downstairs, through the kitchen. We were there for a fortnight, and would have appreciated a washing machine (there is one, not yet plumbed in). However overall we loved the cottage, felt very at home, thought it was good value, and would like to return.
