Brilliant stay here in August. The house is lovely and thoughtfully decorated and the views over the Eden Valley are a joy to wake up to. Great walking, good pubs. swimming pool in Lazonby, near to Penrith and even managed a walk up Blencathra which i've been meaning to do for about 20 years. Would recommend to others in a heart beat.
Garthfolds was wonderful; the location and views were breathtaking, the house was so comfortable, we all slept like logs; we had everything we needed for great family meals in the amazing kitchen and comfy evenings in front of the fire. I enjoyed my morning jogs, taking a different route each day; my son and brother enjoyed fishing, we all had wonderful walks along the river and drives out to the lakes. None of us wanted to leave.
