Opposite us is a farm barn and field which has lambs in spring. Renwick is ideal for walking, cycling and relaxing. The cottage is close to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty. For both walking and cycling there is an excellent variety of routes immediately from the house such as Renwick Fell on the lower Pennines and the C2C is nearby. Sunset from Renwick Fell, looking across the Eden Valley to the Lakes is often stunning. We have 2 bikes that are available for guests at very low cost.Dick and Kath, the owners, are keen on outdoor activities and can offer advice on routes. They also provide written guides for some local walks. The cottage has a customised OS map on the wall which shows the local area and centred on Renwick. There is lots to do in the area. The large Celtic Stone Circle of Long Meg and her Daughters is nearby. There is a working watermill at Little Salkeld about 5 miles away which has an excellent cafe and you can see the mill working. A short and easy walk takes you to Lacy's Caves, beside the Eden where in the 18th century a local landowner stored his wine - sadly now gone! This is is a lovely walk along the side of the Eden and salmon can sometimes be seen. The Settle to Carlisle train line stops at Lazonby about 5 miles away and makes a great day out, going across the Ribblehead Viaduct. Kirkoswald has a lovely church dating from the 12C. Center Parcs is 30 minutes drive away. The RSPB site at Geltsdale is 25 minutes away and has just got Dark Sky Discovery Site status. Unusually for Cumbria, there are 3 pubs with excellent eating facilities within 4 miles. Shops are about 10 minutes drive away in the village of Kirkoswald, (which won an award in the Britain in Bloom competition) and Lazonby. Penrith is 20 minutes travel and has a cinema, supermarkets and other services expected in a large town. There is easy access to the Lake District from the cottage and Ullswater is about 30 minutes drive.
Hadrian's Wall at Birdoswald is also about 30 minutes drive. On the way is the small market town of Brampton. The present church is a splendid example of the work of the Pre-Raphaelites. This is the only church built by the architect Philip Webb and is adorned by an exquisite set of stained glass windows designed by Sir Edward Burne-Jones and manufactured by William Morris.
The cottage uses our Internet connection. We've installed a booster and almost all of the time the WiFi in the cottage is fine but because of the location we cannot guarantee a consistent WiFi signal. If guests have any urgent need for access to the Internet you are welcome to use the signal in the main part of the house where the signal is stronger and consistent. Mobile phone signal is poor in the village.
Dick has lived in the area for 20 years and knows it well. We don't intrude on guests but if guests want to have a chat about walks, trips and so on we are happy to help.
Location description from owner
The England region
Cumbria is the most beautiful and wildest place in England, and includes the quieter Pennines and better known Lakes. There are excellent transport links to Scotland and the south of England as well as to Newcastle. .
Renwick is a small, quiet, farming village that nestles below the Pennines. Renwick Fell is literally on our doorstep and sunset, looking from the Fell across the Eden Valley to Blencathra and the Lakes, is often stunning (photo on the website). Occasionally the Northern Lights can be seen from the top, which is about an hours walk from the cottage. There are many walks to suit all ages and abilities, to the Fell, and in the valleys nearby, to the becks and rivers. Cycling is excellent in the area and the C2 is nearby. We have 2 bikes available for guests at very low cost. We have a range of maps in the cottage and can offer ideas for walks and cycling if needed. There is fishing available and salmon come up the Eden.
There is plenty in the area to do, such as visiting Long Meg and her Daughters, an ancient Celtic stone circle. Lacy's Caves, an 18th Century wine store on the banks of the Eden built in sandstone caves is a treat to visit (though sadly the wine is long gone). Close to in Little Salkeld is a working watermill which has an excellent teashop as well as courses on breadmaking etc. The ruins of Kirkoswald castle are nearby (photo also on the website). Other day trips could be on the magnificent Settle-Leeds line from Lazonby station, 8 minutes away which takes you across Ribblesdale Viaduct.
The cottage is part of Thackmoor Nook which has our house, the guest's cottage and a barn. Guests at the cottage are welcome to enjoy the garden and we are developing a wild flower area in the orchard.
There are 3 excellent pubs with very good food within 10 minutes drive.

“Wonderful accommodation in a superb location”
Following a very stressful journey, we arrived late and were met by Dick who was lovely. The cottage is well equipped and in a super location to explore the area. We were there for a long weekend and we hope to return very soon. Would highly recommend
“perfect place to get away from the rat race and wind down.”
good pubs not to far away plenty of good walks or if the weather is not good relax infront of a good log burning stove
“amazing place to stay for the weekend :)”
Amazing place to spend for the weekend. Me and my partner went for valentines our 1st trip away and it was perfect, we really enjoyed it.The owners were fantastic and so helpful and the people in the village were really nice. The only problems was WiFi which we did get working but had to be close to the owners wall but I'm sure they got the booster working now and we didn't have a car so we couldnt really go exploring places but that was all. This is a place we would stay at again no problem and we definitely recommend it to people.
