Little Mellfell Cottage is set in an outstanding location close to Ullswater, in the heart of one of the most spectacular areas in the Lake District. The property is at the foot of Little Mell Fell and is surrounded by beautiful rural landscapes. Situated away from the main roads, this home offers a rare opportunity for quiet retreat.
This tranquil home is a great base for exploring some of the most beautiful countryside in England. From short lakeside strolls to long distance hikes, there is a fantastic variety of walking right from the door. Water sports enthusiasts are also catered for, with a wealth of opportunities on Ullswater and the nearby Derwentwater, and nature lovers will enjoy the stunning scenery, varied wildlife and peaceful ancient woodlands.
If you fancy a visit to the pub, The Brackenrigg Inn is just a 20-minute walk from your front door. Serving homemade Cumbrian dishes and a selection of local ales, the pub enjoys glorious views over Ullswater and it's pet-friendly, too. Alternatively, the 'Quiet Bar' is a five-minute walk from the cottage. It is full of character, has a huge open fire, a friendly atmosphere and welcomes dogs. Whilst it doesn't serve food, it is the perfect place to unwind after a day out on the fells.
The nearest main town is Penrith, with Pooley Bridge, Keswick, Ambleside and Windermere all in easy reach of the property.
