About Anne Armstrong, Dave Armstrong, Victoria Armstrong
After more than 30 years of teaching we retired at Christmas (2011) and invested in a little piece of rural tranquillity. We have always enjoyed holidays in the Lake District and this lodge overlooking Duke's Pond was perfect. We enjoy walking, cycling and watching the wildlife.

Why Anne Armstrong, Dave Armstrong, Victoria Armstrong chose Penrith
Dukes Pond is in a perfect location to access all that the Lake District offers, yet is in a really peaceful location. Dukes Pond is north of Greystoke on the edge of Greystoke Forest and about 15-20 minutes drive from the centres of Penrith and Keswick and all the facilities you would need for a perfect holiday.
What makes this Cabin unique
The area is a haven for wildlife, and a wide variety of birds, red squirrels and roe deer can be watched from the lodge. The area is perfect for cycling and C2C routes pass close by. There are also lots of walks from the doorstop, including those through Greystoke Forest. Rowanburn is in a perfect 'get away from it' location, yet offers all the home from home comforts.
