Recently refurbished to a high standard, the cottage is lovingly cared for by its owners, the presence of care, attention to detail and quality is apparent throughout, making this beautiful cottage a real 'home from home'.

Due to its prime positioning the car can easily be left in the private parking space for the duration of your stay, allowing you to explore the local area sans vehicle.

Ground floor
Going through Penny Rigg's front door you enter into a Lakeland slate hallway, perfect for leaving walking gear. The slate floor extends into the warm and welcoming sitting room with its large comfy leather sofa, ideally positioned right in front of the wood-burning stove. No fighting over who gets that and who gets the comfy armchairs. As well as the TV and DVD, there's an MP3 docking station and Wi-Fi access.

The well-appointed country kitchen benefits from microwave, dishwasher, electric cooker, full-size fridge/freezer, washing machine & tumble dryer. There's also a dining table for 4 situated at the far end of the kitchen.

A traditional rear porch leads out from the kitchen into the rear courtyard, the perfect place for morning coffees.

Upstairs is oak-floored; the double bedroom enjoys fell views towards the rear of the property whilst the twin/super king room face the front towards Grizedale Forest, both enjoy modern en-suites with no expense spared.

The cottage is very comfortable and the quality of the furnishing and decor is excellent. The bathrooms are amazing and the portholes in the bedrooms for charging the iPads etc are a really good idea. I shall be using the cottage again.

This was our 3rd visit to this lovely cottage and this time it was even better than before. The cottage has been re-decorated to an exceptionally high standard, superb bathrooms and the comfiest beds we have slept in. The cottage, located in the centre of the village, is well equipped, clean and has a lovely enclosed patio with garden furniture at the back. Great for my dog Jack! I highly recommend this cottage and the exceptional service I have always had from Coniston Coppermines.

Penny Rigg met all our expectations. The cottage was very welcoming and the flowers on the kitchen table were a thoughtful touch. Everywhere was spotless.

Stayed here 2 years ago and really liked it. Since then the 2nd bedroom now has an en-suite with a very roomy walk-in shower. The living room has been updated and now very nice; lighter but still cosy. Thank you.
