The Cowshed


Description



Overflowing with character

This very charming, detached 17th century holiday cottage oozes character and was originally built as a coach house, used as a cow shed and then as an antique shop.

It retains many features including stone flag floors, exposed walls and beams and is furnished and decorated to a very good standard with numerous objects in keeping with its character. Penrith is a lovely market town with nice shops, lots of restaurants and scenic walks to enjoy. Ullswater is 6 miles and the Roman Wall is 30 miles. The lakes offer great watersports, horse riding, paragliding, golf, tennis and bowls.

An ideal location for visiting the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland.

Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

Location



Use the map below to view the location of this property and its surrounding area. Controls are provided to allow for zooming in and out, scrolling around, and setting the map to satellite or terrain views.

(N.B. Depending on the details provided by the manager/owner of this property the map may either show the exact location of the property, or simply the location of the village or town in which it is situated.)


Built from distinctive red stone, this market town in the Eden Valley of Cumbria was once the county’s capital, and it presents a fascinating history. The two oldest streets, Burrowgate and Sandgate, date from the 1200s, and the ruins of Penrith Castle, begun at the end of the 14th century to defend this area against the Scots, can be found in a park next to the railway station. On the south-east of the town are the ruins of Brougham Castle, built by the Normans on the bank of the River Eamont. Both castles are now owned by English Heritage and draw many visitors.

On top of Beacon Hill, and overlooking the town, is Penrith Beacon, a monument built in 1719. The view from the Beacon is magnificent, and on a clear day one can see right across the Eden Valley to the hills of Lakeland.

The main church is St. Andrew’s, built from 1720 to 1722 in a commanding Grecian style. A legendary giant and King of All Cumbria is rumoured to be buried in a grave in the churchyard. The four stones around the grave are said to represent the wild boar he killed in the nearby forest.

The Penrith Museum showcases the history, geology and archaeology of the Penrith area. Together with the Tourist Information Centre, it is housed in the former Robinson’s School, an Elizabethan building which was altered in 1670 and used as a school until the early 1970s.

Less than three miles outside the boundaries of the Lake District National Park, Penrith offers many fantastic opportunities for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. It is an ideal base for exploring the breathtaking northern Lakes, the luscious Eden Valley and the rolling Pennine hills. Located at an intersection of routes between Scotland and England, it can be easily accessed from the M6 and A66, as well as a mainline railway service.
