This complex of self catering cottages in Penrith was submitted by owner Liz. This is what she says about their property:
“The Eden Valley boasts some beautiful countryside, has lots of lovely cafes and has lots of lovely lanes to drive to get to them.
From Howscales you can easily take the meandering 1,900ft climb up Hartside pass to Hartside Summit (feautured by the Sunday Times Driving), that on a clear day gives wonderful views of The Lake District and Scotland. In addition The Pennines and The lake District are also within easy reach making the driving opportunities endless, before returning back to your holiday cottage at this former farm set in a wonderful peaceful location.
The approach to Howscales does include some single track lanes. Howscales itself was a working farm and access is gained through the original farm entrance and across a cattle grid.”
Thanks Liz -we can see that a Lotus can safely make it!
