Description

Knaifan Cottage is situated in the heart of Uldale, a farming village which nestles in the Uldale Fells, with walking opportunities from the door. The picturesque village of Cladbeck is only five miles north and Keswick a mere 10 miles to the south. This delightful cottage, which is full of character, is an ideal base from which to explore the northern lakes away from the hustle and bustle of central Lakeland. Mae’s Tea Room and Gallery is 200 yards from the cottage, where you can enjoy a drink and a snack. The traditional "Snooty Fox" public house is only two minutes stroll away and the surrounding countryside of the ’Back o Skiddaw and the Caldbeck Fells offers a fell lover’s paradise. Uldale has a new play park and tennis court and superb views over to Skiddaw, the Caldbeck fells and into Scotland.

About the local area

Located high in the Northern Lakes on the northern fringe of the Lake District National Park lie the ancient fell villages of Caldbeck, Hesket Newmarket and Uldale. This area is rich walking and cycling country, with breathtaking local peaks such as Skiddaw and Blencathra, old mine trails and picturesque limestone gorges with waterfalls waiting to be explored.

This area is rich walking and cycling country, with breathtaking local peaks such as Skiddaw and Blencathra, old mine trails and picturesque limestone gorges with waterfalls waiting to be explored. It really is a place to `get away from it all' but is also within comfortable reach of Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater and Ullswater lakes.

The renowned Mae's Tea Room and Gallery in Uldale is open throughout the year, serving tasty home cooked food through the day and some evenings and exhibits paintings by local artists.

Named after the `cold beck' which runs through the village, Caldbeck was once an important centre for lead mining and corn and woollen milling. The old mines have long since blended back into the dramatic landscape and the mills are now craft workshops and a locally well known restaurant called `Priests Mill'. At the centre of the village is St. Ketingern's church dating back to 1112.

Just down the road is Hesket Newmarket, a pretty village set around a wide green with a canopied market cross. Hesket is also known for its tiny brewery which supplies several local inns within the area.
