The property

Millcroft is a traditional stone terrace cottage in the heart of Glenridding with a delightful cottage style garden surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The unspoiled and tranquil village of Glenridding on the southern tip of Ullswater is set in beautiful countryside and framed by the spectacular Lakeland Hills. The village is much quieter than the bustling central areas of the Lake District yet has a good range of restaurants, shops, pub's and cafe's. The shores of Ullswater are a just short stroll away. Ullswater Steamers offer a relaxing steam cruise around the lake or simply hire your own boat for a great way to cruise the lake at your own pace. For the more energetic you can disembark the Ullswater Steamers at Pooley Bridge, Aira Force and Howtown and walk back to the village along the shores or on higher ground via Place Fell. Stunning views of Ullswater can be admired from the peak of Helvellyn and Striding Edge. Millcroft is a traditionally built Lakeland cottage full of charm and character which includes original beamed ceilings and open fire both helping create a relaxing ambience. A warm welcoming and homely holiday cottage awaits you. Walkers will love the location, families will love the relaxation and couples will love the peace and tranquillity.
