Ideally situated between Keswick, Carlisle and Penrith in an unspoilt tranquil location, semi-detached Primrose Cottage is perfect for couples and benefits from free wi-fi. Situated in the village of Shap, known locally as the ‘Gateway to the Fells and Lakes’, being on the eastern edge of the Lake District National Park and close to the second largest lake in the Lake District - Ullswater. The village offers a wide range of amenities including a good selection of pubs, shops, a public outdoor heated swimming pool, a children’s play area and tennis courts.
The Eden Valley provides superb walking and cycling, and the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales are easy to visit too. The atmospheric, rugged area of Haweswater, 8 miles, has a viewpoint for golden eagles, pretty villages and bustling market towns abound, with a lively calendar of farmers’ markets and county shows. There is plenty of local produce to purchase or enjoy in the many restaurants and pubs serving regional favourites. There is also excellent road access to the historic border city of Carlisle with its castle and museum, and Hadrian’s Wall, a World Heritage Site, has interesting exhibitions to visit. The Northumberland National Park and southern Scotland are both within an hour’s drive. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
Primrose Cottage can be booked together with The Rockery (UK1040) to accommodate up to 12 guests.

    Fabulous holiday very well situated for walking. Villagers were very friendly. The only small draw back was the parking as the larger property The Rockery monopolised the parking

    Lovely few days exploring the lake district. Ideally placed for lots of tourist places. Windermere and Grasmere are 30-45 minutes away and both worth a visit , try the gingerbread in Grasmere. Carlisle is a bit further but both the castle and cathedral are worth a look. Closer to home a definite visit to the Bird of Prey centre is recommended. The cottage is within walking distance of the local shop which has everything you could need and the chip shop which has the best fish and chips we've ever had. Would gladly return to the cottage

    This is a lovely little cottage with a lot of character. It is well equipped and has everything you need. The only thing that was disappointing was that we had no control over the heating which only came on for short periods. We were freezing a lot of the time and it was only September. There was a gas fire but it didn't heat the whole house and it gave me a headache. There was a bit of a damp smell too. Probably would be best to visit in the summer time.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are sorry that you had a chilly stay. The central heating is controlled by a thermostat in the living room and there are instructions in the guest information. We have had the gas fire checked and damp sorted out (a blocked drainage channel) so there shouldn’t be any further problems.
