This recently converted cottage has a balcony to take in the views of Helvellyn and is within a short walk of Lake Ullswater. With a cottage garden and access to a local swimming pool the cottage is an ideal base from which to relax and unwind in this popular area.
The row of former mine workers cottages sit above the pretty village of Glenridding on the southern shore of Ullswater at the foot of Helvellyn with walking from the door. The village has 3 pubs, a restaurant and 2 shops and the area is awash with water sports and activity centres, along with the Ullswater Steamers picking up in the village enabling you to hop on and off exploring the lake without the use of a car. Ambleside, Windermere, Keswick and Penrith are easily accessible with a wide selection of shops, bars and restaurants.

"An excellent rental property well worth the money!"

A heartfelt "Thank you" to the owner Helen and the Cottage Holiday Group who professionally organised our wonderful post-Christmas stay in Glenridding.
The accommodation was of an exceptionally high standard, warm, modern, welcoming and very spacious. The owner, Helen, gave us a detailed tour of the house upon our arrival. One had the distinct impression that nothing was too much trouble and she did indeed answer any questions which we had. The local amenities were sufficient and easily accessible. We would have no hesitation in recommending this rental property to any of our friends or family. Thank you once again. Kind Regards. David Skittrall and family Read more
