The Space

We are near, but not in, or quite like the Lake District. More productive farmland and rolling meadows and definitely quieter and less frenetic. In fact, you really need to stay here for more than one night to properly appreciate the area (not a requirement). If you really want to be in the Lake District - then we suggest you look elsewhere!

Your accommodation will be an en-suite cabin in our garden behind our house. It has a comfortable double sofa bed/futon ( bed height with an extra memory foam mattress) and easy chairs with views over our garden to the Pennine Hills.

There isn't a kitchen but you will be able to make tea and coffee and your breakfast will be served in our porch/conservatory. It will be a choice of yogurt, cereal, fruit, juices, fresh (home made) bread/toast, pastries, tea and coffee. You can use the fridge and microwave in the porch which you can access at all times.

We can provide off-road parking but please note there is a narrow and uphill access - otherwise street park on the left hand side of the road going down the hill. We can also offer an evening meal and wine at additional cost with a menu by agreement (provided it is within our culinary capabilities).

Lazonby is a village of just over 1,000 people and the hill we live on runs down to the River Eden with lovely walks on both banks. We are on the Cumbria Cycle Route and I enjoy cycling around our valley. There is good Co-operative supermarket and Post Office, two pubs and a pleasant open-air swimming pool (heated). There are some excellent real ale and good food pubs in nearby villages.

You can arrive in Lazonby by train on the Carlisle to Leeds Line. We are just 8 miles to the north and east of Penrith in the picturesque Eden Valley. Penrith is on the main West Coast Rail Line from London to Glasgow. We are ideally located for a break in your journey to, or from Scotland - just a 10 minute drive from an M6 junction.

Guest Access

Access at any time to the cabin, the porch and a fridge and microwave.

Interaction with Guests

A major part of being involved with Airbnb is interaction with our guests. We like to know a little about prospective guests in advance of accepting a booking and we enjoy our exchanges without being overbearing. We are generally highly reluctant to accept requests from people who haven't posted a profile or who provide no information about themselves or their reasons for wanting to book with us.

The Neighborhood

We love the rural nature of our location, yet it has plenty of amenities on hand without having to go into Penrith. Some excellent pubs very close too.

Getting Around

A car is essential unless you are travelling on the Carlisle to Settle (Leeds) railway line or cycling.

Other Things to Note

We offer a free meal and a glass of home wine if guests book for 3 nights.

Not too many other than be respectful of our property, relax and enjoy what's on offer. No smoking or dogs on the property, so please don't ask for an exemption. Also not suitable for children. Once we have gone through the 'meet and greet' guests can have a key to the cabin to come and go as they please, but quietly.
