Welcome to Morland House, in Cumbria’s Eden Valley

Morland House is a large manor house set in four acres of beautiful gardens in the heart of the picturesque Eden Valley on the edge of the Lake District:

  • sleeping up to 19 adults
  • in 9 bedrooms

It is a perfect place for large gatherings of family and friends for special occasions. It is available for weekly lets or short breaks (weekends or mid-week) - check availability here.

Originally a Tudor vicarage (1500s), the house was extended in the Georgian period, and then substantially again in the 1870s and 1880s when it took on its present appearance. Since then it has been improved by the addition of 6 bathrooms, a new smart central heating system, and other modern comforts, to make a house which combines a formal dining room and drawing room with informal kitchen, sitting rooms and games room.

The house became the home of the Markham family in 1828, as it still is. Today three generations of the family are involved in owning and running it.


Morland House is in Morland, an attractive village which is:

  • 8 miles south-east of Penrith
  • convenient for the M6
  • central for the Lakes, Pennines, Yorkshire Dales, and Hadrian’s Wall.

Penrith is the local shopping town and Keswick, Kendal and Carlisle are all about 25 miles (40 minutes) away. The nearest Lake is Ullswater, which is 11 miles (around 20 minutes). Direct trains run from London Euston to Penrith in 3 hours.
