Interaction with Guests
I am always here to welcome my guests and to help them in any way I can. As a family we can advise them if they would like to take interesting walks in the Lakeland Hills or the Eden Valley. The local swimming pool is open in Summer time.
We have a caring community in Greystoke. Only yesterday we held a tea party to raise money for Breast cancer Care. a lot of work went into baking and setting up the Village hall to make it pretty and inviting.
this weekend coming our Church is holding a Craft Exhibition and we once again welcome the Public to visit our Church. Teas will be served.
We do have a limited public transport system to and from Penrith. There is one bus to connect with Keswick each day.
Other Things to Note
I am the Bell Captain in our Church. We have a ring of six bells, three date back to the early 1400 century. Two were newly cast bells for the Millennium. We practice each Thursday evening from 7.30 until 9pm.
It do not allow smoking and no I do not take pets either.
We had a very enjoyable stay at Wendy's house. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. We received a very warm welcome and delicious breakfast. The location is brilliant, local pub and shops in short walking distance and only a few minutes by car to the lakes. Also very pleased to use the off-road parking and the surprise of our own private garden! Wendy and her husband were always very friendly and helpful. Thank You :)
