Holiday home
Park House Cottage is a detached, Grade II listed stone-built cottage situated within the grounds of Skirwith Abbey, in the village of Skirwith, near Penrith. This cottage sleeps eight people in four bedrooms, consisting of two first floor super king-size doubles, both with en-suites and two ground floor zip/link super king-size doubles, as well as a separate ground floor bathroom with free-standing bath.

What an amazing place. The most beautiful position with fantastic views from every window. We loved using the open fire. Perfect location for all of the Lake District. It was so good we did not want to leave. A memorable time had by all of us.

The house was spacious and comfortable, perfect for large parties of guests including young children where they were safe yet not restrictive. The location is beautiful, very tranquil and set in lovely countryside.

The position of the property is superb. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and within easy access of the other Eden Valley villages. A very peaceful place. We were very impressed by the property and it was ideal for the 8 of us as each couple had a high spec bedroom and we had plenty of space in the kitchen and living room.

The location and brows were fantastic. The owner was really friendly and helpful. The cottage was furnished to a very high standard, a lot of thought had gone into the needs of the guests, couldn't fault it. Would definitely return.

From start to finish the holiday cottage gave us everything we needed. In a perfect location with spacious rooms and excellent facilities. A highlight was the lovely open fire, perfect for this time of year! We would definitely recommend this house to all our friends and family.

It was a convenient location for a small family get together to celebrate my parents diamond wedding. We only had a weekend so not too much exploring outside but the comfortable feeling within Park House Cottage meant we all relaxed and had fun together. Everyone enjoyed the bathrooms/showers and it was good to have all the rooms of an equivalent high standard. No one was in a box room!! We all enjoyed our stay.

A beautiful cottage in a gorgeous location. The garden was enclosed to allow a safe area for children to play in while adults relaxed on the lovely furniture.

The House was very well furnished, consumables, for example; washing powder, tablets and loo paper were all supplied and there was a first aid kit provided so you didn't need to be running about trying to source them. Small things but they take away problems and let you relax more. The walled garden outside was a nice sun trap and our 3 year old could play to her hearts delight. There are cattle in the field next to it and she enjoyed them coming over.
