Description

Squirrels Nest is a lovingly refurbished, three-bedroomed apartment spread over two floors, and is located in beautifully unspoilt Edenhall near Penrith. The apartment is part of Edenhall Country House Hotel and benefits from the on-site bar and restaurant. It also has a private garden and patio, together with shared access to the hotel’s grounds. The master bedroom is on the first floor and offers a double bed and large en-suite bathroom with a spa bath.
The Lake District is within easy driving distance, with Ullswater (often described as England’s most beautiful lake) just a 15-minute drive away. In the opposite direction, the Pennines rise to the north and east, and a drive or ride up Hartside Pass will reward you with an incredible panorama of the Eden Valley, Lake District fells and mountains and the sweeping plains up to the Solway Firth and beyond into Scotland. The market town of Penrith is only 4 miles away and has plenty of options for supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, and a fantastic selection of local, independent shops. The Lakeland village of Pooley Bridge, at the head of Ullswater, is only a further 5 miles. Shop 1 mile, bar and restaurant on-site.
Squirrels Nest can be booked together with The Loft (ref UK10454) to accommodate up to 12 guests.

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.
