Watermillock Cottages

Watermillock is a delightful group of stone-built cottages, offering off-road parking, pet-friendly accommodation, and a range of sleeping arrangements. Resting in Watermillock, near Pooley Bridge, these properties are ideal for a family, friends, and their four-legged family members. These properties are tastefully outfitted to cater to all of your needs, and benefit from an on-site shop, café, and fish and chip shop. If you can tear yourself away from these gorgeous dwellings, take time to explore your local area by paying a visit to the Brackenrigg Inn for some traditional pub fare, or try the Rampsbeck Restaurant if you don’t fancy cooking one evening. A short drive north along Ullswater will bring you to Pooley Bridge, where visitors can spend time roaming the grounds of Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens before stopping by the Pooley Bridge Inn for a cold pint. A brief drive in the opposite direction will take you to Glenridding, home to the Ullswater Steamers cruise agency that offers tours along the serene waters of Ullswater, where you can also find a variety of watersports activities to try out. Further amenities can be found at Penrith, and here there is also a golf course, museum, independent stores, and Brougham Castle. More sites to visit include Shap Abbey and Castlerigg Stone Circle, and there are many more walks and mountain biking trails, for example trails at Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, and Fairfield Peak. Watermillock Cottages are an ideal base from which to explore Cumbria and The Lake District.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

About the location

WATERMILLOCK

Pooley Bridge 2.5 miles; Glenridding 6.2 miles; Penrith 8.5 miles.

The elevated scattered village of Watermillock runs parallel to the main road alongside Ullswater Lake and is mainly a farming community. Just 2.5 miles away is Pooley Bridge with its array of amenities which sits on the northern shore of the lake in the Lake District National Park. The name Pooley originated due to the forming of a large pool, which was left by the fast flowing River Eamont. Pooley Bridge has many traditional inns and tempting tea rooms, plus the Ullswater Steamers depart from the village, from where a tranquil cruise down the lake to the villages of Glenridding and Howtown can be enjoyed. Glenridding (meaning glen overgrown with bracken) is a small tourist village with a range of local shops, cafes and restaurants. There are numerous walks with breathtaking views nearby, plus a short walk up to Dunmallard Hill reveals fascinating Iron-Age remains, whilst the towns of Penrith and Keswick are within driving distance. Watermillock is an ideal base for a cottage holiday stay in the stunning Lake District.
