You will be able to make tea and coffee and your breakfast will be served in our porch/conservatory. It will a choice of yogurt, cereal, fruit, juices, fresh (home made) bread/toast, pastries, tea and coffee. We can provide off-road parking. 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.
Its near, but not like the Lake District. More farmland and rolling meadows and definitely quieter and less frenetic. In fact, you really need to stay here for more than one night.
They were happy to take me on such short notice. The cabin was very nice and I had amazing nights sleep on the comfortable bed.
I stayed in Nigel's summerhouse with my sister on a road trip to Scotland. It is well located (just a couple of miles from the motorway) and has lovely views.
We were privileged to be Nigel's first guests and received a very warm welcome (including a glass of his delicious homemade rhubarb wine).
The breakfast was great with homemade jam for our toast!
The summerhouse was lovely and warm and the pillows were good quality so we both got a great nights sleep!
Plenty of street parking available, supermarket and pub just down the road.
Overall a lovely spot with lovely hosts!
