Sampson's is a splendid 7 bedroom house set on a private Cumbrian Estate in the Eden Valley. With a huge open plan kitchen and family sized AGA, this much loved home is perfect for enjoying the very best of Cumbria and it's local produce.

Reached by a private lane, the only sound is the splash of trout in the River Eden. Ideal for family and friends, children can explore freely whilst you relax on the squishy sofas in the living room by the huge open fire. There are much loved antiques, books galore and pale wooden floors with brightly covered kilims. Seagrass carpets lead up to the bedrooms which are all individual, full of light and have views across the surrounding fells. The gardens have splendid lawned areas for kicking a ball around. Private Fishing can be booked in advance at a daily rate. There is a huge dining kitchen with seating for 12 and a glorious living room with open fire. A separate snug is great for somebody looking for an afternoon snooze! 7 Bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.

The pretty market town of Penrith and the north lakes are only a short drive away but, with this glorious valley on your doorstep, you probably won't venture too far.
