The Space




Bedroom is nice and large and comprises: two single beds with duvets; chest of drawers; Wardrobe and 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Well i would recommend staying here just to meet the wonderful Enzo, but Martin and Jo were great hosts as well and just lovely people in general to chat to : ). They were very helpful with tips for exploring the lakes and Hadrians wall. The accomadation was beautiful and clean, great location, spacious, lovely view upstairs.
    Highly recommend staying with these guys if you are visiting the lakes at any stage!

  • As touring cyclists, we were particularly pleased that these hosts had bicycle storage available at ground level. Everything else was as promised in th listing.

  • Staying with Martin and Jo in their beautiful house was a great experience in every aspect. From the photos you can see the different kinds of wood that they have incorporated into their house but when you are there it is actually even better than the photos. I was given a relaxed and warm welcome and felt very at home. The bathroom is especially luxurious and the house is wonderfully warm.

  • This was our second stay with Martin and Jo. Always a comfortable stay with very warm and welcoming hosts. Will definitely be staying again.

  • This is a fantastic stay. My friend and I did the C2C route in November and we were much refreshed with a hot shower and good night's sleep in a warm room and a quiet neighbourhood. Breakfast was also wonderful (so many types of cereal!).

    The facilities are great. We had a small TV in our twin bedroom and a refreshment table with a water heater. Towels are also (website hidden) and Martin are wonderful hosts. Our bikes were stored securely in a garage and we had some interesting conversations over tea beside the fireplace. Martin was also kind enough to let me have "specialist batteries" for my bike lights, saving me a trip across town.

    I would recommend this over a hotel - it's cheaper and better.

    (Just a note - (website hidden) Maps may not recognise the address 70 Lowther Street precisely. I'll leave Martin to tell the story why, but if you can navigate to Lowther Street, just go up the hill and you should be close.)

  • My second stay with Martin and Jo was even better than the first! I had the lovely double room with a sofa and sink in the room, right next to the bathroom. So it felt like my own little flat in the evening. However, I was there for Martin's birthday and one evening I was treated to a glass of champagne - not the usual greeting one expects. Facilities were excellent, and it was great to be made so welcome and have some interesting chats too!

  • Charming considerate hosts. Very comfortable many thanks!

  • What wonderful hosts Martin & Jo are. Sadly we only spent one night with them. We actually got lost trying to find them due to strange street naming & numbering regulations. However, once located, they couldn't have been more hospitable or helpful, with Martin waiting on the street corner to show us where to park. Thanks for making us feel so welcome and at home. Thanks Martin for your route suggestions - indeed very picturesque with breathtaking scenery. We enjoyed your delicious breakfast, and meeting your other guests. We can highly recommend Martin & Jo's B&B as a wonderful place to stay for visiting the Lake District. Lidy & Astrid.

  • My brother and I stayed here whilst doing the Coast2Coast cycle route. Martin was a superb host whose breakfast table has everything you could possibly want before attacking the gruelling climb over the Pennines. Excellent communication meant that when we arrived we were able to get straight into our room and have a well needed shower, which by the way is fantastic - warm, powerful and a good size in a spacious bathroom next to the bedroom.
    The house has a nice patio area which afforded views back across the lakeland fells we had earlier cycled and a sunny space to get our breath back when we arrived. Our bikes were safely stored in a garage overnight and I have never met such a well behaved and chilled out dog, whose presence you would hardly even notice.

  • WOW is too simple way to describe this place to stay..... if you are in the area this is the only place to stay.... Not only are your hosts interesting people, their home is the best I have stayed in..... The house is stunning the HOT water is plentiful and has great pressure and the bed was SUPER COMFY....... thanks so much for having me ............. and the fact that Martin went the extra mile and bought my phone charger that I had forgotten to the train station, and this was after he had already given me a lift to the station is an example of what wonderful people are all about.......5 star Hosts and a 5 star house which I cant wait to come back and see again when there is some snow on the mountains

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...
