Once owned by Beatrix Potter, Penny Hill Farm is reached via Doctor Bridge, one of the prettiest spots on the River Esk.

The farm is now owned by the National Trust and run by Ralph and Margaret Jackson who have farmed there for 30 years. Still a working farm, their main business is Herdwick Sheep with lambing taking place during the month of April. In addition to the holiday cottage, they also run Bed and Breakfast from the farmhouse.

There are spectacular views to Harter Fell and the other hills of the Eskdale valley. Surrounding the farm are a wide range of walks from a gentle stroll down the river or a slightly harder slog up one of the many fells in this beautiful valley.

One mile up from the La’al Ratty (the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway) towards Hardknott Pass, Penny Hill Farm is within walking distance of three pubs, the nearest being only five minutes walk away.
