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 are absolutely lovely; they are kind, fun, interesting, informative, and helpful people. I strongly recommend a stay with them at their home in Penrith, or anywhere else, for that matter. If you are looking to make friends, Martin and Jo are quick to demonstrate an interest in their guests and to open up about themselves and their own interests. Though we only stayed one night, my girlfriend and I felt that we got to know Martin and Jo in rewarding ways, and we enjoyed a wide-ranging and enthusiastic conversation around their dinner table, discussing everything from global healthcare systems to television sitcoms. Had we wanted a more solitary and private stay, however, it was also clear that Martin and Jo completely respected our space and took their cues from us.

    Their home in Penrith is comfortable and Martin and Jo are quite accommodating. Despite our significant dietary restrictions, my girlfriend and I were served a lovely breakfast, and we very much enjoyed Martin and Jo's recommended hikes in the Lake District. Parking is convenient, and their Penrith home is a great home base for venturing into the Lake District.

    A great stay!

  • We had a wonderful time staying there. Martin and Jo are very nice, good to talk to and helped us with our day trip. The double bedroom is nicely decorated and very spacious. We arrived by train and it was very easy to find the way to the house. The provided breakfast was good as well. The neighborhood is rather calm, with charming houses everywhere. Thank you again, for the wonderful days at your place. Whenever we'll be back in the area we'd definitely stay with you again :) Romy and Robert

  • Jo and Martin were extremely welcoming and made me feel very much at home. I was only in Penrith for a few days and would have liked to have stayed longer!

    If you take a look to their house pictures, that’s what you are going to find in Martin & Jo’s Home.

    Lovely House, wonderful couple.

    If you are looking for a place to sleep, it’s just right here. You will find everything you need in your big room with free wifi!

    Every morning you will find your breakfast at the Kitchen with tea, coffee, milk, cereals, fruit, toasts, jam (homemade!!! nom nom nom!!)

    We spent our nights chatting with this amazing couple who helped us in our day trips with loads of tips, borrowing their maps (they have lots!), and even learning history with them!!

    We are definitely going to come back to their lovely home!

Based in the Lake District but have lived in many places around the UK and abroad. I'm married to Jo, a maxillofacial surgeon, who like me loves to travel. I have two grown up children and am a Paediatric Physiotherapist, engineer, computer consultant, and like think of myself as a bit of an entrepreneur. We both enjoy skiing, sailing, kitesurfing, paragliding, diving, mountain-biking, hiking and being outdoors. We enjoy Airbnbing since when we can't travel ourselves "travelling comes to us" in the form of interesting guests...
