Description

The Carriage House (Was The Cobbles), which is set within the grounds of Calthwaite Hall, an elegant 19C country house is perfectly situated in the Ullswater area. This Grade II listed building, previously the coach house, offers light and airy accommodation. With a fascinating mix of contemporary and character, The Carriage House (Was The Cobbles) is presented and furnished with style appropriate to the surroundings. There is a lovely view from the all weather patio area to the pond which is set within the formal gardens of the main house. The exquisite grounds are beautifully maintained and Calthwaite Hall also plays host to a stunning flock of ducks, peacocks and swans, the perfect companions for a stroll around the grounds. In addition, explore the secret garden and paddock, including an equestrian school (guests may bring their own horses, fee for grazing on request). Should you wish to venture further afield, local attractions include Centre Parcs and The Rheged Centre. Ullswater, arguably the most romantic lake, is only a 15 mile scenic drive away, and the Eden Valley and Scottish Borders are within driving distance. There is also a local pub in the village which offers both delicious bar meals and great hospitality. The grandeur of this pied-a-terre truly must be seen to be believed and the owners always offer a warm welcome.Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 100 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.
