Sitting above the western shore of Ullswater in a small cluster of houses and cottages, you’d be forgiven for thinking this property has lain here for years. Built by local tradespeople using Cumbrian slate and sandstone in 2009, this Georgian-style property is an opportunity to enjoy the spectacular Lake District in style and comfort. Take long walks around Glenridding (7 miles) and Sandwick (8.5 miles) or simply enjoy a peaceful ride on the lake on an Ullswater Steamer (7.5 miles).

As you step into the property you’re welcomed by a beautifully light and airy open-plan kitchen/diner where sleek appliances and glossy worktops make it a pleasure to cook in; sit at the island while the chef cooks with a glass of wine. Climb up the spectacular spiral staircase to the first-floor lounge where you can experience breathtaking views from the windows; calming neutral tones and comfortable sofas make this the ideal spot to curl up in on a chilly evening. Nab the double bedroom with en-suite bathroom to enjoy a sumptuous soak in the freestanding bath among spa-like decor before snuggling into bed. But if you’d prefer to wake up to spectacular views, the first-floor double bedroom is for you.

Possibly the most famous waterfall in the Lake District, you must visit Aira Force (5.5 miles) which falls 70 feet from below a stone footbridge and provides a glimpse of a landscaped Victorian park. Historians both young and old will revel in the exhibitions at Threlkeld Quarry and Mining Museum (12 miles), while slightly further west the Derwent Pencil Museum (15 miles) might sound a little boring, but is actually fascinating! Wander the charming streets of Grasmere (22 miles) where you’ll find delicious gingerbread along with William Wordsworth’s home, Dove Cottage, and can learn about his life and work.

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

We had a very enjoyable stay at The Bothy. The house was clean and very well presented to a high level. The lounge on the top floor was a massive bonus which we used in the evenings. A perfect location to explore Ullswater and beyond.

Amazing location with stunning views and easy to access the lake and walks within a short drive. The picture in the advertising of the table outside is a little misleading as this is placed on a private drive where about 8 other properties drive along to access the car park. We hardly used the living room as there is no view and the views are too sRead morepectacular to miss, so found the family using the main bedroom to gather on our bed and to watch telly. Hide

This is a lovely accommodation and a great base for touring the area. There is no shop nearby so make sure you bring what you need or order an online delivery. The views of the lake are stunning!

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.
