About Graham and Sue Millard
We've been married for over 40 years and we've lived here for 35 of them. Graham based his heavy goods transport business here and we stocked the small holding with sheep, cattle, ducks and hens. During that time we've done various other things apart from farming--from making horse harness and teaching carriage driving to lecturing in computing. I now manage web sites and write, and Graham looks after the cottage. Our children are grown-up and have their own families now, but we still have our dog Micky Wippitt, cat Gracie, and Fell pony Ruby. The farm is grass-let to neighbours who graze sheep on our fields.
Graham and Sue Millard purchased this Cottage in 1983
Why Graham and Sue Millard chose Penrith
We like its quiet rural location combined with its ease of access to the motorway.
What makes this Cottage unique
Midway between Lakes and Dales, inside the Westmorland Dales section of the two National Parks.
100% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 7 days before arrival date.
The photos show how lovely the building is, inside and out. But when you get there and look around you, smell the air, see the landscape and meet Graham and Sue that's when you realise the Hidden Gem you have booked.
Its perfect place for families. Nice and quiet with lovely People around you. Very good conection to other routs so is very handy to travel around lake district. I would recomend the place to everyone
Great, surprisingly spacious, dog-friendly house in a rural area with fantastic views
Fantastic well-kept little rural house with plenty of space in the living room for the four of us and our three dogs and generously-sized bedrooms. The view is spectacular from every window and you can indeed barely hear the trains occasionally passing nearby(-ish).
I arrived very late and so didn't have a chance to meet the owners personally but the rest of the gang told me they were very pleasant. I did get a chance to meet their dog Sammy briefly on the final morning though, and he was extremely well-mannered and made my day :)
Cozy and comfy
We have had a fab stay at Daw Bank cottage the house is so cozy and comfy with everything you need the owners were lovely and very helpful and it was nice to see the animals too x we would recommend this property as a base to tour the area especially if you like trains
Home from home

Thank you Maureen - you are all very welcome to visit us again!
We are not in Penrith! We are near Tebay. TURN OFF THE SAT NAV and follow our directions to avoid an unlit, steep, winding narrow approach road that will scare the pants off you. OUR route is short and easy!
The flora locally is amazing, even roadside verges can be SSSIs.
Lots of quiet roads, cycle routes and footpaths
We're close enough to the main West Coast line to observe steam trains passing - but not near enough to be troubled by noise!
Use of a car or motorbike is essential (there is no public transport).
Nearest airport: Carlisle (44 miles), Manchester or Liverpool (100 miles).
