The cottage is situated on the edge of Greystoke Village and is a stones throw from the imposing Greystoke Castle.

The cottage is situated on the edge of The Lake District National Park and is within five minutes walking distance from Greystoke Village which offers a well stocked shop and post office, pub, Church and outdoor heated swimming pool.

Greystoke is a pleasant village with 17th century cottages, many with cobbled forecourts, about 4 miles west of Penrith. It is on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park, and retains its village green with its ancient market cross that dates back at least to the early 1600's.
