Property code: SZ012

Whether you’re after dreamy days on the lake or hikes high above the water, this characterful cottage is in the perfect spot with something for everyone; family, friends and pups.

Ullswater is widely thought to be one of the most picturesque places in the Lake District and this is the 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 wood burner 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? This cottage is absolutely ideally situated to make the most of this fabulous area.

The entrance to the cottage is via a small courtyard. From here you come in to the kitchen-diner. This is a well-equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, clothes airer, microwave, fridge/freezer, under counter oven and halogen hobs. The glorious view up towards Glenridding Dodd from the kitchen window might even make you offer to do the washing up by hand!

Through from here you'll find the living room. This is a lovely warm room with built in wood burner and two comfy sofas where you can relax after some long Lakeland walks. There is a television, with Freesat and Freeview, a DVD player and a selection of games and puzzles to help you while away your evenings or the odd rainy afternoon. In here you'll also find a large cupboard with space to hide away plenty of coats and muddy boots.

The first room you come to upstairs is normally made up as the master room with super-king bed, this can be made up as two singles according to your party's needs – please let us know upon booking if you would like two singles. This room has a TV with Freeview, a wardrobe, desk and drawers. Upstairs there is also a second bedroom with double bed and a modern shower room with a bidet and vanity unit for storage. There is a step down onto the landing from both bedrooms, which might be something to bear in mind for little ones!

Out of the back door you'll find a lovely patio garden with birdfeeders and a bench looking up to the backdrop of the Helvellyn range. What a magnificent place to sit and enjoy an evening glass of wine or a sunny morning cuppa! There's a shared pathway through the other terrace's gardens taking you through to the parking area. In all, it's a perfect cottage to make the most of this lovely area.

Lovely cottage, very comfortable bed and good facilites, including the heating.

The first notable thing about the cottage was it was spotless on arrival. We were comfortable in every way during our stay and had everything we needed and more.

This cottage is in an ideal location for exploring the fells around Glenridding, Patterdale and the whole Ullswater area.

Lovely little cottage for a break away. Small, but adequate for our needs, 2 adults, 1 dog and 1 toddler. The cottage is quite basic, but in a good location, with great walking access to Ullswater Lake.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
