Large house with own lake, river and woodland sauna
About Sarah Ravenbridge
We fell in love with Ravenbridge as have many others. For more than 10 years we have rented out the property and grounds as well as lived in it ourselves. It is our own home but we like to share it. Many happy holidays and events have happened at Ravenbridge over the last 10 years from family reunions, chamber music courses, yurt making and yoga retreats.
Sarah Ravenbridge purchased this House in 2006
Why Sarah Ravenbridge chose Penrith
Ravenbridge has everything for those who are inspired by beauty and nature but also like home comforts and a convenient kitchen. Ravenbridge is a place to be playful, have fun and enjoy the company of good friends or find solitude. We have our own hills and rivers and the Lake District national park is within easy reach.
What makes this House unique
A modernised house with traditional features and interesting views from all windows. 21 acres of woodland, pasture and gardens. Woodland sauna and lake swimming. Enough to do at Ravenbridge without leaving the site.

Celebrating our Golden Wedding
We were a group of family and friends celebrating our anniversary at Ravenbridge Mill. Sarah and Kenneth made us most welcome even allowing us to invite extra guests for our party. The Mill was ideal as we could use all the facilities on their site including canoeing on the lake. The children had a great time exploring the site with lots of hide and seek, trampolining, table tennis, pool, and even dressing up from the supply in the games room. Sarah did invite us to join her for a morning swim in the lake but when she told us the water temperature everyone seemed to have another task to attend to! Many thanks for helping to make our anniversary so memorable. Tony & Angela
Delightful and relaxing holiday
We had a wonderful week at Ravenbridge Mill. The house is spacious and works well, but with character. There is nothing extra you could want for, something to keep people entertained all day, you could spend all week there and not need to go anywhere else. It is the owners home and they really do want to share their home, garden and grounds with you.
The most magical retreat in an amazing house
This haven surpassed all expectations!
The hospitality and generosity of the hosts to think of so much made this holiday so outstanding and special in so many ways for everyone from very young to us oldies.
The house and garden is beautiful and has everything ..lots if space, activities, like glass painting, a games room, beautiful lake and boats with fabulous sauna all organised with safety in mind. As a family it was the most amazing holiday in the most beautiful setting.
fantastic place in a great location lots to do inside and outside
After struggling to find a place in the area that would take 6 adults and 6 children we found Ravenbridge Mill and I'm so glad we did. Set in beautiful woodland with wildlife and fresh produce aplenty. The games room and lake provided hours of on site entertainment and we didn't feel the need to leave for the first 3 days and only then to stock up on supplies in nearby Lazonby. Sarah and Ken were on hand to help out as and when we needed them too and nothing was too much effort or too much trouble.We really felt they just wanted us to have a good time and that's what we most certainly did. Every effort has been made to make it a great place to stay from the delicious home made victoria sponge down to the endless books, DVDs, games and craft supplies. All six children loved the trampoline and treated the chickens as their own pets, following them around and collecting eggs. This was the perfect place for a very special holiday and we can't wait to come back.
We were a party of 9 (4 adults and 5 children) and there was plenty of room for all. Inside the house the children were amused by the large number of toys and the 2 electric pianos. The adults enjoyed the very comfortable kitchen and living room. Outside, the chickens, boating lake, frog pond, trampoline, gypsy caravan, campfire etc provided endless fun for all. And if that was not enough (!) there was a well equipped games room. Our land lord and lady were very kind and helpful. The countryside around is very beautiful and we enjoyed a great walk from the house to the pub in Kirkoswald. The chickens were happy to give us many free and delicious eggs.
So glad you enjoyed your stay at Ravenbridge Mill and entered the holiday spirit of embracing playfulness, exploring the outdoors along with the comfort of Ravenbridge Mill. Do come again and tell your friends about us.
There are pubs, local shops and walks from Ravenbridge and the Lake District national park is 30 minutes drive from the house. Perhaps one of the best features of Ravenbridge is that there is plenty to do on site.
