About Wayside Cottage

Wayside Cottage is an idyllic Cumbrian gem. The charming period holiday home is in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a stone's throw from Penrith and within a short drive of the Lake District National Park and in the picturesque Eden Valley. The layout suits couples, friends or families. There are two double bedrooms sleeping up to four guests, with a recent refurbishment from top to bottom, ensuring guests enjoy a high standard of comfort. Guests rave about the location in the medieval village of Milburn, within walking distance of the large village green.

Milburn is charming. Built around a 4.5-acre village green, it's the starting point for a gorgeous walk to Cross Fell, which is the highest mountain in England outside of the Lake District National Park, and to Great Dunn Fell. A shorter footpath leads to nearby Grade I Listed Howgill Castle. Milburn is only three miles from Temple Sowerby, a village named after the Knights Templar who owned Sowerby Manor. The outskirts of Temple Sowerby is home to the National Trust's Acorn Bank Garden and Water Mill. There are numerous traditional pubs which serve food within a ten minute drive and the nearest convenience store is at Kirkby Thore, three miles away. Supermarkets and other provisions are available in Penrith, ten miles from Wayside Cottage, and Appleby-in-Westmoreland, six miles away.

This area is a firm favourite with walkers for the extensive choice of footpaths to suit all abilities. Routes range from mountain climbs to gentle riverside walks, with memorably beautiful views in all seasons. The roads over mountain passes in the northern Lakes are spectacular, and cyclists and mountain bikers are also well served with superb trails. You're also near enough to Ullswater for sailing, kayaking and wild swimming - there is no end of ways you can enjoy being outdoors.

On your return to the cottage, take a blissfully long soak in the bath before settling down on the sofa with the Smart TV and Netflix, a cosy log burner in winter, and the promise of a good night's sleep followed by another amazing day of fun. Holiday bookings are available all year round - ideal, as the North Pennines are incredible in all seasons.
