Guests have a separate grassed area but also access to the owner's garden. We have a small wild flower area with a bench/table which is lovely for sitting on an evening. Guests have use of the owners' washing machine and tumble drier. We provide enough fuel for the stove free. Guests can bring dogs but they can't be left in the property without an adult there and aren't allowed up onto the furniture. The property is on the edge of the village and there is no through traffic passing by, making it quiet and safe. Opposite us is a farm barn and field which has lambs in spring. Renwick is ideal for walking, cycling and relaxing. The cottage is close to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty. For both walking and cycling there is an excellent variety of routes immediately from the house such as Renwick Fell on the lower Pennines and the C2C is nearby. Sunset from Renwick Fell, looking across the Eden Valley to the Lakes is often stunning. We have 2 bikes that are available for guests at no charge.. The owners send a great deal of information about the area to guests before they arrive. We are keen on outdoor activities and can offer advice on walks suitable for all levels of actviity. We also provide written guides for some local walks. The cottage has a customised OS map on the wall which shows the local area and centred on Renwick. There are 3 pubs with excellent eating facilities within 4 miles. Shops are about 10 minutes drive away in the village of Kirkoswald, (which won an award in the Britain in Bloom competition) and there is a Co-Op supermarket in Lazonby, which guests often go through on their way to the cottage. Lazonby also has a station, post office and petrol. There is lots to do in the area. The large Celtic Stone Circle of Long Meg and her Daughters is nearby. There is a working watermill at Little Salkeld about 5 miles away which has an excellent cafe and you can see the mill working. A short and easy walk takes you to Lacy's Caves, beside the Eden where in the 18th century a local landowner stored his wine - sadly now gone! This is is a lovely walk along the side of the Eden and salmon can sometimes be seen. The Settle to Carlisle train line stops at Lazonby about 5 miles away and makes a great day out, going across the Ribblehead Viaduct. Kirkoswald has a lovely church dating from the 12C. The RSPB site at Geltsdale is 25 minutes away and has just got Dark Sky Discovery Site status. Penrith is 20 minutes travel and has a cinema, supermarkets and other services expected in a large town. There is easy access to the Lake District from the cottage and Ullswater is about 30 minutes drive. Hadrian's Wall at Birdoswald is also about 30 minutes drive. On the way is the small market town of Brampton. The present church is a splendid example of the work of the Pre-Raphaelites. This is the only church built by the architect Philip Webb and is adorned by an exquisite set of stained glass windows designed by Sir Edward Burne-Jones and manufactured by William Morris. The cottage uses our Internet connection. We've installed a booster and almost all of the time the WiFi in the cottage is fine but because of the location we cannot guarantee a consistent WiFi signal. If guests have any urgent need for access to the Internet you are welcome to use the signal in the main part of the house where the signal is stronger and consistent. Mobile phone signal is poor in the village. If guests need urgently to use a phone, you are welcome to use our landline. There is a terrestrial TV (which gives Freeview) and a DVD player but not Satellite TV. We provide some DVDs. More

A pleasant cottage in a quiet, very quiet village. If peace is what you want you'll find it here. For those who are social media reliant the wifi/internet connection is very limited. Best time 5:30-7:30 am, after that pot luck. Host was friendly & welcoming.

Hi many thanks. Is there maybe a bit missing as the reference to pot luck doesn't seem to follow the previous bit?

About the neighbourhood
Renwick is a small, quiet, farming village that nestles below the Pennines. Renwick Fell is literally on our doorstep and sunset, looking from the Fell across the Eden Valley to Blencathra and the Lakes, is often stunning (photo on the website). Occasionally the Northern Lights can be seen from the top, which is about an hours walk from the cottage. There are many walks to suit all ages and abilities, to the Fell, and in the valleys nearby, to the becks and rivers. Cycling is excellent in the area and the C2 is nearby. We have 2 bikes available for guests at cost. We have a range of maps in the cottage and can offer ideas for walks and cycling if needed. There is fishing available and salmon come up the Eden. There is plenty in the area to do, such as visiting Long Meg and her Daughters, ...
Getting around
There are many walks from the cottage and we have lots of information in the cottage. We're keen walkers and are happy to chat. This is a popular cycling route and the C2C runs nearby. There are no busses. Taxis can be used from Penrith station.
