Located in a quiet end of the Northern Lake District, with stunning open views of the surrounding fells, the only disturbances during your stay here may only be the gentle hustle of the dairy cows passing as they head to the farm for milking, and the background tune of birdsong.
Greenah View is an exceptionally well-appointed, semi-detached property dating back to 17th century. It has a large entrance hall, with a seating area and an adjacent bookcase full of local guides and walks to give you plenty of ideas for exploring during your stay. The living room is a perfect space to sit in front of the open fire after the day’s adventures, whilst the dual-aspect windows offer views to each side. A large kitchen/dining room has everything you need to prepare a hearty meal, but with such an excellent pub in the village offering fine ales and home cooked food, you could easily be tempted back out again. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a feature four poster bed, and there are two other bedrooms and a family bathroom, along with a downstairs shower room.
Outside, the immaculate garden, with planted borders and raised beds, has two seating areas. The more sheltered lower area suited for those early morning coffees, and the raised area for those long summer evenings sitting with a glass of wine whilst watching the sun set over the countryside.
Uldale sits in a corner of the Lake District, an area the locals call Back o’Skiddaw. The quieter Northern Fell Ranges rarely get crowded, even in the height of summer, whilst the numerous pretty villages, with tea rooms, galleries and stunning landscapes making it a perfect days touring, whether by car or cycling.

About the local area
Bassenthwaite Lake and village of the same name is situated just north west of Keswick in the Northern Lakes. The magnificent Skiddaw (931m) can be seen rising to the east and Grisedale Pike (790m) to the south west.
Paths leading from Bassenthwaite village connect to circular walks in the area and holidaymakers are able to go fishing and sailing on the lake. From May to September look out for the wild Bassenthwaite Lake Ospreys raising their young chicks or watch the video link from Whinlatter Forest Visitor's Centre. Try a visit to the historic 17th century manor house, Mirehouse, which is close by on the eastern shore of the lake and has some lovely garden walks (Open April - October) or travel a few miles west to market town of Cockermouth or just a little further to Maryport on the coast.
This area offers the ideal base for exploring nearby Keswick; a charming Northern Lakes market town of great character and is well placed for touring the untouched northern and western lakes.
