  • Mr Lofthouse

    “Sixth visit to the cottage; this was our first time in summer so it was really nice to be able to use the beutifull garden.”

    We have previously always found the cleaning of the cottage to have been to a very high standard unfortunately on this occasion we found the toilet and waste bin in the master bedroom had not been cleaned. Dishwasher out of order. We have recommended friends to the cottage who have booked for September and we have booked our winter break for November. We hope the usual high standard of cleanliness will return.

The property

Dating back to 1880 this former farm worker's cottage later became a photographer's studio and has been lovingly restored with 21st century comforts in mind. It offers picturesque holiday accommodation in one of the most beautiful Lake District valleys - Lake Ullswater is just over a mile away for lake cruises and boat hire. The fine walking around the surrounding high fells includes Helvellyn, St. Sunday Crag and the High Street Ridge and there are numerous valley rambles in the immediate area. Patterdale village has a well stocked local shop and a pub for bar meals etc. Accommodation: The cottage stands in its own enclosed garden bounded beyond the wall on one side by the tumbling waters of Deepdale Beck and with views to the hills around. The split-level interior has its entrance into the dining kitchen with hanging space for your outdoor gear. Several steps lead up from the kitchen to the comfortable beamed sitting room with pitched ceiling and feature stone wall, (TV with Satellite Freeview, DVD, free wi-fi and radio/cassette). French window to outside steps. There are two bedrooms - a twin on the lower floor reached down a few steps and with an adjacent bathroom (bath with hand-held shower, basin and wc), and a master double en-suite, on the same level as the kitchen with a few narrow steps down to its bathroom (large shower, basin and wc). French window out to little bedroom patio. The cottage is cosy in all seasons with a real eye for detail, attractively furnished with carefully chosen colours and fabrics. Slate floor in the kitchen, tiled bathrooms and fitted carpets elsewhere. Outside: Ample parking in the gravelled drive. Large patio area with garden seating and fine views of the Hartsop Fells.

About the location


Ullswater is generally considered to encompass three major villages. This includes Glenridding at the south and Pooley Bridge at the north. The second largest lake, at approximately 7.5 miles wide, Ullswater is often regarded as the most beautiful lake in the district. There is dramatic mountain scenery to the south, as well as the gentle hills of the north. This region is popular among walkers, climbers and cyclists of all levels of ability. There are various water sports for all abilities too and lots of family activities. Along with historical sites of interest, Ullswater has a strong nautical history, having been a popular sailing destination for centuries. There are marinas placed all around the lake. Plus a wide range of superb eateries and shops, sure to delight!
Also, on the west side of the lake is the beautiful Aira Force Waterfall. It is one of the National Park’s most popular natural tourist attractions. Glenridding is a particularly popular tourist attraction with mountain walkers. They visit the village to scale England’s third highest peak, Helvellyn.
