Parking - There is an off road parking space at the end of the terrace which is large enough for two vehicles - this is solely for your use. The Garden - A pretty, south facing, fully enclosed (3ft high fences and dry stone walls) garden which is accessed through a gate across the cobbled path in front of Penny's door. There are two seating areas, iron chairs and table (cushions are stored in the monks bench in the lounge) and a lockable cycle shed. There are wonderful countryside views from the end of the garden. The Lounge - A character room with a beamed full height ceiling and large inglenook fire place housing a cosy log burner. A large squishy leather sofa (not just any sofa...) with pouffe, a comfy rocking chair, for fireside naps! Warm country pine furniture to compliment the style of the cottage. There are also books, games and jigsaws to bring you back to blissful old fashioned basics! There is a Smart TV and radio/DVD player to keep you grooving! The Kitchen - Fully equipped with the tools you need to create a gastronomic delight (if you choose to have a night off from experiencing the local eateries) Mini electric range cooker, full size microwave and low level fridge with ice compartment. Toaster, kettle and cafetiere as well as all the crockery and cutlery you need. The Bathroom - An Edwardian styled bathroom with regal height toilet and basin (a little higher than normal to help those with back and neck issues - you can tell the owner is a Therapist!) A rainfall shower for a quick cleanse - ready for your exciting day ahead - is set above a full size Cleargreen bath to keep your water warm for long, lazy soaks at the end of your busy day. The Bedroom - A bright, fresh room opens up to a beamed, vaulted ceiling. Warm country pine double wardrobe, ottoman, bedside cupboards and chest of drawers offer plentiful storage. The king size Victorian style bed (complete with bed knobs!) is clothed in quality linen and is positioned so that you can look out at beautiful views across the neighbouring fields and countryside beyond. Large, soft, fluffy towels are provided for your comfort. More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage sits on the route of the Westhouse Walks and is close to the famous Ingleton Waterfalls. There is a strong Sir Arthur Conan Doyle connection in the area. Conan Doyle's mother lived in nearby Masongill. He attended Stonyhurst College (approx 1 hr drive away). Arthur married his first wife, Louisa Hawkins, at St Oswald's Church, Thornton in Lonsdale, (where a copy of his marriage certificate can be viewed) just a mile from Penny Black and it is thought that his Sherlock Holmes character was developed in the Ingleton area with a number of clues to be discovered by would be detectives. You can visit Uncle Jeremy's Household store in Ingleton, where Martyn will happily tell you all about Arthur’s connection with Ingleton.
Getting around
Ingleton village offers individual shops, dog friendly country pubs, a variety of eating establishments and wonderful tea rooms. There are many Churches of various denominations in the area. The nearest shop to Penny is 0.9 miles towards Ingleton. It is a 'corner shop' with a difference and is called Country Harvest. Here you can buy local produce including wonderful meats and groceries, clothing, gifts and they have a super café. Our local pub is the newly refurbished Marton Arms who serve tasty, well presented evening meals, offer fine traditional hand pulled cask ales and have over 35 gins on offer. The Marton Arms is in the hamlet of Thornton in Lonsdale (1 mile away)
