Occupying the upper floors of a beautiful Victorian townhouse, this light and tastefully decorated apartment makes a great holiday base for a couple exploring the Lake District and the North Pennines.
Make a romantic retreat to vibrant Penrith, deep in beautiful Cumbria, on the doorstep on the Lake District, and take your best furry friend with you. This one-bedroom, duplex apartment within the town makes a perfect abode for a couple eager to take their contented canine on their special break. Set across the second and third floors of a 19th-century building, and commanding exceptional views, it is ideally located for dog-friendly cafes and pubs, as well as shops selling local produce. From here, strike out every day on long walks then return home to enjoy quality time together.
Step into the shared hall and climb the staircase up to the second-floor level to let yourself in. Unpack your shopping in the kitchen, give your four-legged friend something tasty to eat and discover all the equipment you need to prepare meals. You also have a useful washing machine. Find the king-size bedroom at this level, together with the shower room. Venture up another floor to the lounge/diner, which has a limited head height in some places due to its characterful, sloping ceiling. Relax in here with your perfect pup as you watch a movie on TV or via the Blu-ray player. In the morning, take your pal over to the nearby woodland surrounding to stretch their legs.
Pack a picnic and some dog treats and drive 6 miles into the Lake District to spend the day beside beautiful Ullswater. Pick up a section of the 20-mile route all the way around the lake to tire four-pawed feet and to experience the surroundings. Hop aboard a dog-friendly steamboat to soak up the scenery while resting weary paws. Venture 10 miles from the apartment to reach the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
