Designed for Relaxing

Glen Bank is a luxuriously styled Cumbrian cottage that has been lovingly restored to retain a lot of the original features that date back to 1755 while subtlety introducing modern day comfort.

This glorious getaway is the perfect venue for family groups or friends. Glen Bank is situated in a unique triangle in the picturesque Eden Valley nestled between the High Penines, the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The spacious cottage is a traditional Cumbrian longhouse the interior of which contains original artwork, specially selected artifacts and beautiful furniture which manages to combine style with cosiness.

So if you’re a keen walker, cyclist or driver; or if you just need a place to wind down, play some golf, or read a book and drink some good wine, Glen Bank is your ideal refuge. PS we are also dog-friendly and to prove it we’ve installed a Dog Shower with hot water, shampoo and towels to keep pooch happy!
