A picturesque cottage that’s been lovingly updated with traditional design and romantic textures, a cheerful space to unwind after long days exploring the heart of the Lake District National Park.

Tucked away in the picturesque village of Ullock, this is a lovely holiday cottage perfect for couples as well as accommodating up to six people if you use the attic bedroom.

Ullock is a great starting point to explore the Western Lake District and coast. Loweswater Lake is only a 10-minute drive away, and Ennerdale Water is 15 minutes. Both lakes enjoy a certain solitude that can sometimes be hard to find in the Lake District.

There are a couple of pubs within a couple of miles of the cottage, one of which has an ancient yew tree in its forecourt, reputed to be 1,000 years old. Dogs are welcome too.

For shops, Cockermouth (just 5 miles away) has a wide variety of small independent shops, pubs and cafes, as well as a supermarket. Here you can take a tour round the Jennings Brewery or visit the Kirkgate Centre which doubles up as a theatre and cinema.

Inside, the sitting room is a warm and cosy room with Freeview Sky, DVD player and an open fire.

The kitchen is large and has a dining table for up to six people. The kitchen is fully equipped with electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and plenty of storage space.

Through the kitchen is the bathroom which has a bath with hand-held shower, toilet and wash basin.

The stairs are fairly steep and lead to two bedrooms. The first bedroom has a king-size bed and TV. There is an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom has a double bed and TV.

Access to the attic room is via the double bedroom. Please note that the stairs here are steep and being an attic room, there is limited head space - this room may be better suited to older children. There is also a TV in this room too.

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.
