Located on the edge of the Lake District National Park, Greystoke has a village green with an ancient Market Cross dating back to the early 1600s. It is an ideal location for sightseeing/walking in the Lake District.
The local pub, the Boot and Shoe, overlooks the green. Serves excellent food. Lots of other restaurants and good pubs within easy reach.
The village is a fascinating mix of historical and modern attractions and includes:
17th century stone houses and cottages with slate roofs and cobbled forecourts
an imposing Church, which dates back to the mid-1200s and has a massive tower that still houses 15th century bells
a Sanctuary Stone - which relates to the time when fugitives from justice were granted sanctuary upon reaching the Church
a Plague Stone - where plague victims left coins in its hollowed-out top, which was filled with vinegar to protect the healthy people, who then left food for the sick
an Elizabethan style Castle [not open to the public] which stands in a great wooded park of 6000 acres which has permissive paths open to the public for walking
three folly farmholds and a number of pele towers
a professional horse-racing stable owned by Nicky Richards, a descendant of Sir Gordon Richards the famous Jockey. The string of racehorses walk through the village, past the cottage every morning on their way to training.
a heated outdoor swimming pool is located close to the Church
Greystoke's name means place by the River Creik but more noticeable is the River Petteril which flows through the village, close to the Church.
Holiday rental periods normally start on a Saturday at 2 pm but whenever possible arrangements are made to suit individual requirements for your holiday or weekend break.
