5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in November 2013

My review is very long overdue but I have been keeping an eye out for The Cowshed and hoping that it would appear on Trip Advisor one day.

My boyfriend and I stayed at here in November last year and we had a wonderful time. Being honest, there isn't loads to do in Penrith itself but we found it to be a great base to explore the Lake District as neither of us knows it particularly well.

The cottage is very cosy and was perfect for two of us. I can also so that the bed was the most comfortable that either of us had slept in and as a direct result of that trip we both went out and invested in quilts and pillows of the same high quality so we could enjoy a little 'Cowshed' luxury at home :)

The own is a very nice lady and call me a few weeks before our stay to express a little concern that there was a tenant vacating on the day of our arrival and so there might not have been the time to turn it around and get it ship-shape before we got there. If that was the...
