Situated in the tiny hamlet of Matterdale End, it is a perfect Lakeland retreat for couples wishing to stay together or for one couple looking for a special destination - especially honeymooners! at any time of the year. Ullswater is within easy reach for steam cruises and quiet water sports - dinghy sailing, canoeing and fishing. There are great walks from the door, and a visit to the magnificent waterfalls at Aira Force is a 'must'.
