Lacet is part of Hutton John Estate. It has passed through several families and is now owned by the Fraser family. When we came back home in 2000 we started developing the Estate as a business and in 2017 we decided to create three holiday lets and Lacet is one of them. It took a lot of effort to get them ready and so we take pride in ensuring guests have a lovely place to call home during their holiday. We live close by so if you need some assistance there is some one available to help. I will visit you at the cottage to check you have settled in and give you any tips about the local area.
Why Kate chose Hutton
Whether you want a romantic getaway or you and some friends feel like a holiday together, Lacet Cottage is the perfect retreat. Children will love the garden for playing and everyone can enjoy some al fresco dining set just above Skitwathh Beck. You my well be lucky enough to see a red squirrel or two, but there are certainly lots of birds to watch. It is ideally located in a quiet hamlet, yet just 10 minutes from Penrith where you will find various supermarkets including Booths and Marks and Spencer's. There are plenty of other quirky shops ad some great restaurants and a cinema probably not like you have been to before!
What makes this house unique
Lacet is a Lakeland stone cottage, built in the nineteenth century as two cottages. It has been lovingly converted in to a single cottage but still with some quirky features. The views from Lacet are wonderful. You can see Little Mell Fell from the kitchen window and it looks glorious whether covered in a blanket of snow or basking in sunshine. You should see lots of wildlife, including red squirrels that come and feed in the garden. The cottage is surrounded by its own garden, but the outlook is over fields full of sheep, you might also see owls and various other birds. If you are very lucky and up early enough you may catch a glimpse of a roe deer.. Skitwath Beck flows at the bottom of the valley, to the side of the property, but if you want to go sailing you’ll have to go to Ullswater!
