A contemporary cottage set in a peaceful, rural location with amazing views, on the edge of Ullswater - perfect for a romantic getaway or an adventurous holiday.

Treat your family to a getaway in Watermillock. This bungalow would be the perfect spot for a holiday with the dog, where everyone can relax and enjoy the stunning countryside of the Lake District. Whether you like horse riding, walking, swimming or water sports, there’s something for you to do, plus new activities to try. You’ll be really close to the stunning Ullswater Lake, so evening paddles and afternoons skipping stones are all easily available.

The property opens up directly into the lounge/diner. It’s an airy, modern room with wood-panelled floors, so listen out for the tip-taps of your dog’s paws. There’s comfortable seating around a flame-effect gas fire for cosy evenings, and the whole place feels relaxing and sociable. Continue through to the galley-style kitchen, where you can make tasty meals or pack picnics for big days out. The kitchen has doors leading to the bedrooms. There’s a spacious bedroom with a super-king-size bed, and then a twin room, ideal for children. Each bedroom has its own en-suite shower room. The bungalow has a patio with a seating area, surrounded by bushes, and further out there’s a stretching lawn. If you’d like to bring outdoor gear like bikes and canoes, storage space can be arranged ahead of your arrival.

You’ll be a convenient 500 metres from Ullswater, a beautiful 8-mile-long lake which is wonderful to walk around. Alternatively, Aira Force Waterfall is 3 miles away and well worth a visit. Budding scientists and wildlife lovers should visit the Thornsgill Beck, Mosedale Beck and Wolf Crag Site of Special Scientific Interest, 8 miles away.

Very clean and modern cottage in a beautiful setting. Owners are next door so on hand but otherwise you wouldn't know they were there. Milk, wine, chocolates and biscuits were a nice touch and very welcome. A washing machine in the property would have been useful however the owners did offer a 24 hour Laundry service free of charge. You will also nRead moreeed your own transport as the cottage is a short drive between the two main villages in Ullswater. Hide
