Cumbria School of Saddlery

Teaching the skills of the Rural Craftsman


The School is situated within half a mile of Penrith, only one minute by car from Junction 40 (M6) yet with a glorious view of the Lakeland fells including Helvellyn. Have a look at the map. You may wish to combine the course with some walking, climbing or sailing in the district. (Ullswater is four miles away!)

The School is located at Redhills Business Park, where there is plenty of free parking. Once a farm building, it has been renovated and is now a classroom with full workshop facilities for up to six students. Quiet dogs are welcome by arrangement.

Penrith has good shopping facilities and a range of 'take-aways', pubs, restaurants and night clubs. A hostel and bed and breakfast accommodation can easily be found in the town for £20- £45 per night. There are plenty B&Bs and Guest Houses or caravan and camping sites in the locality.
