Smithy House

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Penrith, Eden District, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Beautiful 4 Star Visit Britain Gold Award old house dating back to 1700's which lies in the lovely village of Stainton. The house has 3 bedrooms. It is superbly decorated and furnished to a very high standard with lots of lovely personal touches.

The house has retained much of its traditional charm and character. Set in its own mature gardens it is ideal for those looking for a retreat away from the crowds but within easy reach of many attractions and Lake Ullswater. This is also an ideal base for walking and cycling. Hellvelyn and Blencathra are both close by and the tranquil lanes are ideal for cycling. If you want harder cycling then the passes are all within range.
