This stunning recently fully renovated building is set on the owner’s grounds, dating back centuries. This property's stunning views have to be seen to believed and it is set between the towns of Cockermouth and Workington. Ullock is a great starting point to explore the Western Lake District and coast where there are plenty of walks straight from your door up to Loweswater, Buttermere, Crummock and Ennderale which have views to behold. Cockermouth is only a short drive away and has an abundance of eateries and shops so you will not be found wanting. There are plenty of other sites to explore in the local area such as visiting the Jennings Brewery, the Aquarium in Maryport, the Lakes Distillery and many more.

On arrival you will be greeted by the spacious private courtyard and the grand house itself. Enter through the porch and oak front door into the snug which is equipped with two large sofas, Smart TV and wood burner. To the left you will find yourself in the country styled kitchen/diner which is a cook’s dream, with electric oven and hob, AGA, dishwasher, and plenty of cooking space. There is also a small dining area with traditional seating with bench and chairs. Head down a step into the pantry which holds the fridge/freezer and microwave along with plenty of space to store supplies for your holiday. From the pantry head through to the hallway where you will find the wet room with shower and WC, and along the hallway from this is the twin zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request) with amazing views to behold. Finally, on the ground floor, you will find the lounge with original open fire which is great for those nights in where you can kick back and relax with the sofas and armchairs in front of the Smart TV. Head back out into the hall and head up the first set of steps to the first floor, where you will firstly come across the king-size room with amazing views across the countryside. Next is another king-size room with the same stunning views but the bonus of an en-suite shower room and WC. The main bathroom is next with bath with hand-held shower and WC, followed by another king-size bedroom. Finally, we find ourselves in the master bedroom, also with king-size bed and en-suite shower room and WC. Leading through the bedroom is a passage to the last two bedrooms which are a double and bunk bedroom with Jack and Jill shower room, accessed from both bedrooms. There is also a staircase in the magical celebration room, which must be seen to be believed. Here, you feel as though you are in a great hall with the large table and chairs for that family feast of champions along with a wood burner and best of all a serving kitchen equipped with electric oven and hob, wine cooler and dishwasher plus plenty of additional crockery. There is also a doorway which leads back around to the snug where we first began our journey of this magnificent home.

At the rear of the property you will find the garden area with paved seating area and a charcoal BBQ, there are five steps leading down to the grass area. At the front of the property you will find an outbuilding equipped with washing machine and tumble dryer, plus storage for bikes and kayaks etc. The vast courtyard has space for off-road parking for six cars.

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

An extremely comfortable stay in a beautiful location. The house is very well located for adventures into the Lake District or the coast and has beautiful views. The bedrooms were all large and comfortable, the bathrooms modern and the kitchen had everything we needed. The cosy yet large sitting room was ideal for an evening by the fire after a dayRead more outdoors. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend staying in this beautiful place. Anne, the host, was also very friendly and welcoming. Hide

Ullock Mains is idyllic. The house is spacious & really well furnished. We have stayed in many holiday rentals but none of them have felt anywhere near as homely. The bedrooms are all of a great size & comfortable, every room has the most incredible outlook, either over the garden & surrounding countryside or the pretty hamlet. The village pub in DRead moreean is a short walk away along quiet lanes & is perfect for your first night. The owners are delightful & extremely helpful without being intrusive. Hide

This cottage is new to rent for 2020 and I would absolutely give it a 5 star review. It has been beautifully decorated and furnished to create a sophisticated country cottage ambiance. Anne and Gordon were very welcoming and helpful always available with advice about the local area and walks. I would not hesitate to return.

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.
