About Tim Byrne
Hi, we are Tim and Pauline. We have recently gone freelance after careers in the restaurant trade and Further Education (Teaching English). We now spend our time between the Lake District and Spain where we love walking in the mountains.
Tim Byrne purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Tim Byrne chose Penrith
We have been coming to the North Lakes for over 20 years and it is our favourite retreat from the bustle of city life. We love walking and even on bank holiday weekends we can be alone in the hills behind Blencathra. We also love the local pubs.

A good stay.
Very comfortable. Clean and well-provided with all necessities for a stay. Useful information beforehand to help find the property. Quiet & friendly village. Convenient for eastern Lakes and Eden Valley.
Excellent small village location near many medieval and ancient attractions and Lake District.
Homey. Clean. Comfortable. Great host. All yours. Modern kitchen and bath.
Beautiful cottage, fabulous location
Very comfortable cottage. Beautifully decorated. Host very helpful. Stairs were fine for us but older people may struggle as quite slippy.
Only improvements would be a microwave and shower more powerful.
Mother, Daughter getaway.
The property had everything we wanted. Quiet and peaceful. A different part of the Lakes for us than our usual haunts. Loved it.
Lovely cottage, perfect facilities and in an ideal location for exploring the lakes.
A pleasant stay in a lovely cottage!
We had a pleasant stay in this beautiful cottage. The cottage has a wonderful ambience. All the facilities are fabulous and would be perfect with a better shower! Apart from that our stay in this cottage was absolutely relaxing and felt so comfortable like home. It was our first visit to the Lake District and this cottage is a comfortable distance to travel to many places. We completely enjoyed our stay.
