The 3 bedroom cottage (sleeps 6) faces south and is set within the shelter of the 18 foot high walls of the former kitchen garden to Brougham Hall (visible across the fields). The original gardener’s cottage has been completely modernised and is solid and comfortable. The front has been newly built with a high proportion of glass in the form of French doors, bow windows and a 16 foot high ceiling with sky-lights. A glimpse of sunshine is enough to warm this light and lofty living space. Under-floor heating and a wood burning stove complete the job on cooler days. All rooms are on the ground floor. The whole is set in secluded farm land within easy access of Penrith, Ullswater and the Lake District. The river Lowther, with its resident kingfishers, wild ducks and red squirrels, runs just below the cottage.

About T Helme
We are a family with long connections to the north-west of England, although we personally live in the south of England. The property is managed locally from Penrith by our agent.
T Helme purchased this Cottage in 1949
Why T Helme chose Penrith
Lived there all my life, until recently. The property is situated in a quiet corner of our farm land with the river Lowther running below. The area is very convenient for both the M6 and for the whole of the Lake District national Park
What makes this Cottage unique
The main areas of the property are south facing and has been built to capture as much sunlight as possible. The living area and kitchen, with high ceilings, have two French doors opening onto the terrace

Home from Home
It was magical. Property was of very high standard and catered for everything you could possibly need. Tranquil surroundings with fabulous walks nearby. Penrith only short drive with lots of character.
Property felt like home each day we returned to it and the log burner was brilliant to add to make a cosy retreat in which to unwind.
Ideal boot and clothes room at rear of property was a great way to keep dirty walking boots and clothes in one area and then you could walk through to main rooms enjoying the bliss of the underfloor heating.
We would recommend the property 110%. Excellent value and exceeded our expectations. The owners have made a very special retreat for others to enjoy.
Super geräumiges und geschmackvolles Ferienhaus
Wir hatte eine tolle Zeit bei Brougham Hall und haben jeden Morgen unzählige Kaninchen und Perlhühner bewundert. Die Zimmer sind geräumig und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das Ferienhaus liegt ruhig neben einer Farm und hat eine schöne Freifläche vor und hinter dem Haus. Vom Haus haben wir direkt die ein und andere kleine Wanderung gemacht. Für größere Runden war man mit dem Auto im nu im Lake District. Penrith ist nur 2,5 Kilometer zu Fuß entfernt und ist ein entzückendes Städtchen.
5 miles to Lake Ullswater. 15 miles to centre of Lake District. 30 miles to coast.
Penrith 3 miles. Lake District 5-15 miles.
