6 High Rake is a charming 2 bedroom cottage, enjoying an enviable elevated position on the edge of the much loved village of Glenridding. Refurbished throughout, this cottage now provides homely accommodation for 4 people. At the back of the cottage is the well equipped kitchen, whilst the living-dining room is to the front. With a wood burning stove and stunning views towards the Helvellyn range, it's a fantastic room. Up on the first floor are the 2 double bedrooms, one spacious and the other more cosy, and the family bathroom. Outside is a delightful garden that slopes down to the cottage's designated parking space.
The mountain scenery is inspiring and the fell walking here is hard to beat; you can even leave the car parked and enjoy a different walk from the door every single day of your holiday! Serious fell walkers will relish the opportunity to tackle mighty Helvellyn straight from the front door. For the adventurous and well prepared, Striding Edge provides an exciting route to the summit. If you don't fancy going right to the top, check out Greenside Mine on the slopes for clues about the area's industrial past. Pack a picnic and spend the day by beautiful Ullswater. Enjoy lakeside strolls, wild swimming or a ride on the majestic Ullswater Steamer.
In fair weather take a scenic drive over Kirkstone Pass, a steep and winding narrow mountain pass with stunning vistas, to bustling Ambleside. Spend a morning looking round the great choice of independent and outdoor shops before treating yourselves to lunch from one of the quirky eateries. Continue south to vibrant Bowness-on-Windermere. From here, you can catch the ferry across to Hawkshead, anotheer charming Lakeland village that's certainly worth a visit. Visit Beatrix Potter's former home of Hill Top, stock up on the famous Hawkshead Relish or indulge your sweet tooth at The Little Ice Cream Shop.
