Pottery Cottage is a high quality well-furnished comfortable centrally heated 2 bedroom cottage situated in the beautiful unspoilt village of Skelton. The cottage was originally a pottery until converted in 1999. Skelton is on the edge of the Lake District National Park, about 4 miles from Caldbeck and the northern fells. Ullswater and the market town of Penrith are both 7 miles away, reached in around 10-15 minutes by car. Keswick and Carlisle 20 minutes away you’ll find Pottery Cottage the ideal base for your holiday.

Pottery Cottage is in the heart of the village within a short walk to village inn, which has recently reopened under new ownership, offering excellent food and cask ale. We would recommend making a reservation to avoid any disappointments (telephone 01768 484301)
