“Historic cottage in great location between town and lake”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Great for a short stay. 2 miles from all the shops and amenities of Penrith (loved Booths!) yet just a couple of miles too down to the lake. The cottage was clean, cosy and thoughtfully equipped and there was plenty to explore nearby.

“Beautiful cosy cottage, fantastic location”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Cottage is really nice and cosy, but had more than enough space for all our overpacked walking gear and endless doggy stuff. It has a good sized and well equipped kitchen, nice comfy sofas and a good sized fire to warm up after some long nippy walks. The bedrooms are of a good size and the big King sized beds are super comfortable.
The location is great! The village is really nice and pretty and the pub is worth a visit. It is really easy to get to, being so close to the A66 (although it still feels like a nice remote lakeland village). It is also a great base to visit all different areas of the lakes.
We will be revisiting again soon hopefully, and would definitely recommend a visit!

“cosy cottage in very good position for visiting the Lake District”
Reviewed 1 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed at Gibson Cottage over the Christmas week when the weather was very wet. We found the cottage to be very cosy and warm. It is near Penrith, the M6 and is very well positioned for travelling into the Lake District. It has a lovely bedroom with one of the most comfortable, huge beds we have ever slept in. The cottage is very dog friendly.
