Ullswater is widely thought to be one of the most picturesque places in the Lake District and 2 Low Glenridding is a perfect cottage from which to enjoy all that this gorgeous area has to offer. It’s a cosy terraced cottage welcoming four guests and up to two well behaved pooches. With a lovely patio area outside to soak up the views towards the mighty Helvellyn range and a cosy built-in woodburner inside around which to curl up in the evening. It really does tick a great many boxes for visitors.
Glenridding is a former mining village on the southern shore of Ullswater boasting several places to eat, outdoor shops, fabulous walking from the door and a jetty for the Ullswater Steamers on the doorstep. For the seasoned mountaineer you could scarcely wish for a better base as the classic route up Helvellyn taking in Swirrel Edge and Striding Edge starts from the village. For guests looking for slightly more sedate walking there are countless options including a family friendly stroll to Lanty’s Tarn and the glorious Aira Force.
Alternatively you can make the most of Ullswater itself by hiring a boat or catching one of the beautifully stately steamers operating throughout the year. Why not take a bike ride around the lake and catch the steamer back home? 2 Low Glenridding is absolutely ideally situated to make the most of this fabulous area.
