The nine-mile long Ullswater is thought by many to be the most beautiful of all the lakes in the Lake District. Watermillock is a small, scattered, rural village, within easy reach of all the local attractions and is ideally located for exploring the northern Lake District. A short walk from your door along the road takes you to rural lanes linking to footpaths up Little Mell Fell or across Swinburns Park to Gowbarrow Fell and Aira Force which is part of the Ullswater Way. A short drive away, is the pretty village of Pooley Bridge, with its unique, stainless steel, single-arched bridge. There is a great range of places to eat, gift shops and a village store for supplies.

Glenridding is also a short drive away, described by Wainwright as one of the prettiest places in the Lakes with 360 degree views of mountains. It is the starting point for some of the most spectacular walks such as Helvellyn via Striding Edge, Place Fell and High Street. The historic properties of Dalemain, Hutton in the Forest and Lowther Castle are close by, all of which have lovely tearooms for treating yourself or try the delicious Jersey ice cream at Abbott Lodge Farm. Further afield, Carlisle, Eden Valley, Howgill Fells and Lanercost Priory and Hadrian's Wall can be explored.

Enter straight into the spacious lounge/diner with a vaulted ceiling. This cottage is al on one level, and the living area is the hub of the house with a three-seater sofa and armchair right in front of the flame effect gas fire and TV/DVD which is great to enjoy anytime of the day. The dining table and chairs have views out across the garden. Heading on through to the contemporary kitchen, there is an electric oven and gas hob, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave and a dishwasher. The bedrooms lead off the kitchen, a twin room and a super-king-size at the far end of the property, both have en-suite shower and WC.

Outside the front door is a lovely, south facing patio enjoying views to the High Street Range. There is a lawned area beyond the enclosed patio. There is also parking for two cars at the property.

There is plenty to do in the local area, including: kayaking and canoeing, horse-riding, quad biking, visit Wordsworth birthplace and homes and walk the Ullswater way.

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

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.
