Stay in this enviable location at the base of Place Fell with a group of friends or family. Close to Ullswater with a range of walking routes from the doorstep

This property offers perfect self-catering holiday accommodation in a stunning location in beautiful Patterdale. It forms the self-contained ground floor of a traditional Lakeland house. Situated at the end of an access only road, the cottage is in a quiet location at the foot of Place Fell and is situated on the coast to coast path. This is unrivalled walking country with the Helvellyn range, St Sunday Crag, High Street and many other thrilling walks straight from the door. Up to two dogs are allowed at this lovely Lake District property, making it equally ideal for a small family or small group of friends and their pets. It is arranged all on the ground floor, so it is also suitable for those who are less mobile.

In Patterdale there are easy low level walks along the tranquil shores of Brother's Water. The shores of Ullswater are a 15-minute walk on a low level path along the side of Place Fell. Ullswater is the second largest of the Lakeland lakes, and many think the loveliest. All manner of boats can be hired from Glenridding to enjoy on the majestic waters or you can swim, picnic, walk, fish or take a trip on Ullswater's ferries.

The accommodation is entered through large doors from the driveway into the lounge area. Here there is seating for four people around a Freeview TV/ DVD. The dining table comfortably seats four people.

The galley kitchen is small (2.6 metres long, with a working space of about 1.5 metres x 1 metre), but ingeniously incorporates all the conventional kitchen appliances needed for four people: a sink with drainer, a full-sized integrated cooker with oven and grill, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher. There is a small deep freezer provided in the lounge area. Please note there is no washing machine at the property.

The bedrooms consist of a double and a twin. All the bedding is cotton and/or synthetic filled, making it suitable for allergy sufferers. The light master bedroom has lovely views and an en-suite shower room with WC. From the twin room is a door leading to the terrace and pretty garden and offering beautiful views. The family bathroom features a bath with a shower tap fitting and a WC.

Outside, you have the exclusive use of the off-road parking area (the owners store their boat trailer here during the summer months) and the large lower garden. There is parking capacity for three cars. The lovely sloping, lawned garden has plenty of space to enjoy the views and the mature shrubs and flower beds. The sheltered terrace is provided with a table and chairs for sitting out.

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.
