Once owned by Beatrix Potter, Penny Hill Farm is reached via Doctor Bridge, one of the prettiest spots on the River Esk.

The farm is owned by the National Trust and run by Ralph and Margaret Jackson, who have farmed there for 30 years. Their main business is Herdwick Sheep, with lambing taking place during the month of April. In addition to the holiday cottage, they also run bed and breakfast from the farmhouse.

From the front door and all the windows at Penny Hill Farm Cottage there are uninterrupted views of the Lake District fells. The front door leads to an open plan sitting room, dining and kitchen area. The kitchen is small but fully furnished, with large fridge-freezer, microwave and electric cooker. There is a dining area for four and a sofa in the sitting room area. There is Sky TV (basic package) and a VHS player with a selection of videos to choose from.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms: one double and one set of bunks. The bathroom is downstairs and has WC, sink and shower.

The cottage is warm and cosy, with oil powered central heating. All heating and bedlinen is included in the price. You do need to bring your own towels. Electricity for lights and the cooker is run from a meter which takes £1. Generally speaking you should expect to use £1 electricity per day.

Sorry, no pets.
