Gibson cottage was built in 1720 and oozes character, with beamed ceilings, stone flagged floors and a centrally located open fire which opens into both the lounge and the kitchen. Stainton is only 1 mile from Penrith and the M6, so is easily accessible, yet close to Ullswater and centrally located to explore the Eastern Lakes or visit Scotland and the Eden Valley. Stainton has the benefit of a village shop, a farm shop, a hotel and restaurant and a pub, all within a few yards of the cottage. The Alpaca centre and Rheghed discovery centre are both situated on the edge of the village.Read more about Gibson Cottage

Ullswater is the Lake District’s second largest lake at nine miles long. Located in the eastern side of Cumbria, it bends and twists its way through dramatic mountain scenery on one side and a gently curving shoreline of green fields and woodland on the other.
Boating centres and marinas nestle unobtrusively on the lake edge, perfect for the water sports enthusiasts, or visitors can relax and enjoy the scenery from one of the steamers that have sailed the lake since 1855.
Many of the Lake District’s many walks have their starting point from around Ullswater, including the renowned trek to Helvellyn’s summit via Striding Edge. Or for the less energetic there are many low-level walks through beautiful countryside.
Of note is Glenridding which sits on the south western shore and is surrounded by the fells with wonderful scenic views. Pooley Bridge on the northern shore, with its 16th Century Bridge, Lakeland greystone houses and quaint teashops and Patterdale just to the south of Ullswater, cradled by mountains.

The property was beautifully presented and absolutly spotless, had everything we needed including a very extensive welcome pack. It was in a lovely village with a nice pub, and very welcoming locals.
