9 Bedrooms , 7 Bathrooms , Sleeps 18
Penrith, Eden District, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Morland House is a large manor house in the picturesque village of Morland, in the Eden Valley in Cumbria, sleeping 18 people in 9 bedrooms. The core of the house is 16th century, but it has been added to many times over the years. Originally a vicarage, it has been the home of the Markham family since 1828, when an ancestor was vicar of Morland church, and was purchased in 1871 when a new (smaller) vicarage was built elsewhere.

The house features oak-panelled main rooms, including a grand dining room for special dinners, a long drawing room seating 16 with a grand piano, an inner hall with a log-burning stove, plus a family kitchen, games room, snug, caterer's kitchen for parties, and more. There are 9 bedrooms, of which 3 are en-suite, and the remainder share 3 additional bathrooms. There are two woodburning stoves and three usabl...
