About the neighbourhood
The Grade II listed Cumbrian long house and sandstone barns date back to the 1600s. These 4* and 5* Gold Award winning cottages properties retain many of their original features including old ship timber oak beams, oak mullion windows, flagged stone floors, open fires and stone staircases. The hamlet of Glassonby is 8 miles from Ullswater, one of England's most beautiful lakes, where there are steam cruises from Pooley Bridge to Glenridding, fabulous hikes up Helvellyn, chances to walk and paddle in the National Trust Aira Force Waterfall, pony treks from Rookin House Farm and canoes and sailboats available to hire from the Glenridding Sailing Centre.
Getting around
Glassonby Old Hall is located just a couple of miles off the A686 which is a beautifully scenic route from Penrith and crosses the River Eden. The road continues to climb the Hartside Pass to a height of 1904 ft, from where you will find magnificent views across the Eden Valley, Solway Firth and Scotland. The Settle to Carlisle railway runs through Langwathby which is only a short drive from Glassonby Old Hall. The railway has some of the most attractive scenery & is world famous for its Victorian architecture. Penrith train station is on the West Coast Main Line, the railway linking London to Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh & Glasgow. Glassonby & the nearby villages offer wonderful walks with beautiful scenery.
