"To call Sampson’s Cave majestic is an understatement. The secluded location, yet relative proximity to so many places of natural beauty and amenities surpassed all of our expectations. The house itself is so homely it made us dream of a different life. We had some of the best days of our lives here” January 2021 Air BnB

Sleeping 6 - 12 guests, Sampson's is a beautiful 7 bedroom house set on a private Cumbrian Estate on the edge of the River Eden in this glorious unspoiled valley. With a huge open plan kitchen and family sized AGA, this much loved home is the perfect base from which to enjoy 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 or the occasional steam train on the nearby Settle-Carlisle line. Ideal for family and friends, children can explore freely whilst you relax on the squishy sofas in the spacious 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. No fighting for the views as all the rooms have them! The gardens have extensive lawned areas for kicking a ball around. Private Fishing can be booked in advance at a daily rate via the Lazonby Estate. .

Lazonby is a working Estate and there will be pheasant shoots during the winter.
