About Glyn West

We are Glyn and Elizabeth West from Great Ayton, North Yorkshire. We have two children Joseph and Thomas. We both grew up locally and met at University. This is our holiday home that we share with you.

Glyn West purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Glyn West chose Penrith

We purchased this cottage in October 2011 and spent 18 months refurbishing it, a real labour of love with attention to detail. We use the cottage ourselves around bookings, our weekend retreat in a rural peaceful setting.

What makes this cottage unique

Set in it own grounds the woodland with it's babbling stream, make the place perfect to relax, giving the children freedom to run free and enjoy the outdoors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hospitality at its best

  • 5 out of 5
This is quite simply a wonderful property. It has been beautifully refurbished, exquisitely designed and is superbly maintained. Everything you need works perfectly; everything you look at screams attention to detail. From the comfort of the beds, the opulence of the bathroom, to the spacious living area, the inviting fire, and the incredible woodland area in the back garden, an adventure holiday in itself, it is quite simply the most welcoming, homely place we have ever stayed.
That's just the house. We were lucky enough to meet Glyn and Liz and his wonderful family. They are even more hospitable than the house itself. They put together all the little touches around the place, and they make you feel incredibly welcome. I can honestly say my daughter was very sorry to see them leave, as were we.
Thank you so much for allowing us to spend time in your house, and in your company. We will be back!

Romantic stay 15-22 February 2014

  • 5 out of 5
I booked this for my husband's birthday treat and it certainly didn't disappoint. It was everything it claimed to be and more. We arrived to a welcome bottle of wine and chocolates which were a lovey surprise. The cottage was tastefully furnished and very cosy. We spent romantic evenings relaxing in front of the log burning fire. There was a generous supply of logs for burning. The setting and location make this a perfect away from it all holiday but with places of interest within easy driving distance. We would highly recommend a stay at this cottage and will definitely use it again if we return to the area. This is among one of the best cottages we have stayed in. Excellent value for money and a perfect retreat in lovely surroundings

Lovely location, cosy and very comfortable

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely break at the cottage. It is done to a very high standard and has everything you need. The garden and stream are delightful and the cottage so cosy and lovely we were happy to stay in and relax. There are lots of luxury touches that made it very special. We particularly liked the welcome package and the lovely log burner and our boys loved the trampoline. We highly recommend it.
