The space




Bedroom is nice and large and comprises: a double bed with duvet; two-seater sofa; basin; chest of drawers; view over the rooftops to the hills.

Bathroom has sink, bath & great shower.

FREE WiFi is available in your room.

Everyday breakfast included and is served in our large farmhouse style kitchen/dining room. A cooked breakfast can be provided on request for an extra charge.

The house is on a quiet residential road and there is plenty of street parking available

Only 1/2 mile from Penrith town centre where you will find many restaurants catering for a number of tastes, several pubs (if you like real ale we thoroughly recommend the Moo Bar) and a family owned multi-screen cinema. Penrith has a good selection of shopping outlets; outdoor clothing and equipment shops and supermarkets. Lowther Castle & Gardens, the historic seat of the Earls of Lonsdale is about 5 miles to the south and the Rheged visitor attraction & iMax Cinema is only 2.6 miles down the A66 to the east. Pooley Bridge/Ullswater is just a little over 6 miles away and of course the rest of the beautiful Lake District is just a little further down the road. Head north and you'll soon be in Scotland and the Borders before you know it, head east to the North Yorkshire Dales, and South to the Howgills. For more information see our Airbnb on-line guide book.

Penrith boasts a mainline train station and a bus station for coach and local bus services.

If your'e partaking in the coast to coast, Lands End to John O'Groats or other cycle activities we can also offer secure bicycle storage on request.

We have a very friendly and well behaved young wire-haired pointer called Enzo who would love to meet you.

Martin and Jo make you feel more than welcome in their house and your stay in Penrith. The beautiful wooden house and it’s coziness really reflects their personalities and it feels close to home. And if you even wanted to try Vegemite and Marmite on the same piece of homemade toast or just with some homemade jam, your wish comes true. It’s a great place to start your journeys into the Lake District and I’m very happy have stayed there.

A home away from home in the heart of Penrith - a stone's throw away from the station and all of town's amenities. The hosts were great, and added to our relaxing stay at theirs. Thank you Martin & Jo!

It's a warm and spacious house to stay in. Comfortable. The shared bathroom wasn't any problem as we were early to rise and 6 other guests much later. Martin gave good advice about local places to eat and we could have made our own meals in the large kitchen had we wanted.

Martin and Jo are really good hosts. They gave us some good advice on places to visit, and provided good conversation. The house is beautiful and very clean and our room was comfortable. On the whole a very positive experience.

We were on our second day of C2C and stopped at Martin and Jo's place in Penrith. The house is in a walkable distance of many shops and restaurants. The room was lovely with lots of quirky details and Jo was very welcome, friendly and gave us some good advice for our cycle route. We would definitely stop here again for a couple more days next time.

What a lovely house and warm welcome from Jo & Martin. We were travelling through so arrived late and left early but couldn't have anything more from them. We'd book again if we were travelling to or from Scotland. Thank you.

Martin & Jo User ProfileMartin & Jo is a superhost.

We're based in the Lake District but have lived in many places around the UK and elsewhere in the world. Jo is a maxillofacial surgeon who, like Martin, loves to travel. Martin has two grown up children and is a Paediatric Physiotherapist, engineer and computer consultant...

We both enjoy skiing, sailing, kitesurfing, paragliding, diving, mountain-biking, hiking and being outdoors.

We enjoy Airbnbing because, when we can't travel ourselves "travelling comes to us" in the form of interesting guests...
