This is a house with a lot of character and warmth, and was comfortable for our family of 8 traveling to the Lake District for a few days. As described in the listing, this is a self-catering home so you will need to ensure you bring some essentials with you (towels + a spare for water spillage from the shower door, toiletries, etc.). It is a very short distance from the train station and grocery store, and within walking to distance to some great eats. Although we didn't get a chance to meet them, Martin & Jo were clear with check-in and check-out instructions.

We didn't have the opportunity to meet Martin and Jo, but we did enjoy their unique home. We didn't realize it had 3+ floors. Being a lived-in home, it came well-equipped with kitchen supplies and everything else. It was a good location for our family for exploring the city and the Lake District.

My family and I arrived slightly early but Jo was very accommodating. The house is beautiful and very homely. It was very clean and had everything we needed to cook when we wanted. The upstairs lounge has a stunning view and was lovely to look out at the view whilst relaxing. There are several supermarkets near by. The location is fab to explore Penrith and the lakes. We had a fantastic break - thank you :)

We loved our stay in Martin & Jo's house. My family came to visit and everyone had a great time. Plenty of room for lots of people and a good sized kitchen. Our 18 month old son loved exploring the garden.

We had a lovely stay in Martin and Jo's beautiful home! They were so kind and flexible when our plans changed due to a flight delay, and the house fit our group (5 people) perfectly. We cooked dinner in their large kitchen, watched TV on their projector, and really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for your hospitality!

Martin & Jo were perfect hosts, check in was seamless and they were easily contactable (advice on local pubs). Great location, it's a beautiful house with views to match. 10/10 - would recommend.

Martin & Jo User Profile

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...
