This spectacular property, in a stunning rural location, sleeps eight guests, making it ideal for family gatherings and celebrations with friends. Located less than 1 mile from Ullswater, regarded by many as the most beautiful lake in England, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to gorgeous walks and jaw-dropping vantage points. In fact, the Ullswater Way, which winds around the entire lake, is just 100 metres from the property’s front door and can be combined with a cruise on the fabulous Ullswater Steamers.

The luxurious former village school provides wonderfully spacious accommodation. The kitchen/diner is a fantastic sociable area, with a large dining table to enjoy mealtimes as a group. The detached property boasts two lounges, making it easy for everyone to find their own little spot to unwind. The first has a cosy wood burner and patio doors which open onto the pond area of the garden. The second has reclining sofas and, for the musically minded, a piano to while away the hours. Outside, the peaceful garden is a haven of tranquillity and, thanks to the low light pollution, is the perfect place for an evening of stargazing. The inhouse information is regularly updated, giving you plenty of hints and tips to make the most out of your stay in this beautiful part of the world.

From the Ullswater Way, hop on and off the Ullswater Steamers to get a truly unique perspective of the landscape. You can also hire luxury motorboats and romantic rowing boats, if you want to travel in style. As you glide across the water, be sure to admire Wordsworth’s daffodils on the west shore and the expansive vistas of Lakeland’s highest mountains. Stop off at the Aira Force pier and take the enchanting stroll through ancient woodland to the magnificent waterfall.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

We absolutely loved the property - I think our favourite cottage ever! Plenty of space inside, very comfortable beds with quality bed linen. Kitchen seemed to provide more equipment than we needed, with plenty of good crockery pots and pans. We had never used an Aga before but enjoyed trying this. The house is surrounded by a private garden which iRead mores not overlooked by neighbours. There are views to some fells from the garden. Perfect location which was very peaceful. (5 adults) Hide

Absolutely beautiful home with top of the range furniture and every conceivable item you might need in the kitchen and elsewhere in the house. We were very pleasantly surprised. The only downside is the late check in and early check out as you basically lose a whole day.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
