Description

Overlooking the village green, this delightful adjoining cottage, furnished with great style and charm, is a wonderful holiday base for touring the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Immaculately presented, it makes for a pleasant stay in both winter and summer alike - flowers and champagne can be arranged on request and romantic winter evenings can be spent around the open fire or balmy evenings with a glass of chilled wine in the conservatory, which opens out onto a very pretty, and secluded cottage garden. This much sought-after rural community has, on a number of occasions, won the title of Eden’s Best Kept Village. There is excellent walking and cycling in the area. Ullswater 7 miles. Keswick 20 miles. Shops 6 miles, pub 200 yards.

About the local area

Ullswater is the Lake District's second largest lake at nine miles long. Located in the eastern side of Cumbria, it bends and twists its way through dramatic mountain scenery on one side and a gently curving shoreline of green fields and woodland on the other.

Boating centres and marinas nestle unobtrusively on the lake edge, perfect for the water sports enthusiasts, or visitors can relax and enjoy the scenery from one of the steamers that have sailed the lake since 1855.

Many of the Lake District's many walks have their starting point from around Ullswater, including the renowned trek to Helvellyn's summit via Striding Edge. Or for the less energetic there are many low-level walks through beautiful countryside.

Of note is Glenridding which sits on the south western shore and is surrounded by the fells with wonderful scenic views. Pooley Bridge on the northern shore, with its 16th Century Bridge, Lakeland greystone houses and quaint teashops and Patterdale just to the south of Ullswater, cradled by mountains.
