The property

Felldale cottage is perfectly placed amongst some of the most stunning scenery in the Lake District, with every season offering a new picture postcard view. Nestled between Place Fell, Angle Tarn Pikes, High Street and Deepdale: this is truly a property where you can leave the car for a week, and take to the fells right from the front door. There are mountain bike trails right from the doorstep; and Ullswater, with all its water based activities, is just a five minute drive away. Two homely pubs just under a mile away: the Brothers Water Inn and the White Lion in Patterdale, provide just the refreshment a day on the fells demands- or if you don't fancy cooking, some good pub Faye. The Patterdale village store is very well stocked, with a small coffee and cakes parlour for refreshments after an easy stroll along the river from the cottage into the village. Felldale comprises of 1 double bedroom, 1 king bedroom and a twin bedded room which benefits from an ensuite shower room; adjacent to the doubles are a shower-toilet room and a family bathroom - giving everyone on holiday their own space. Decorated to an excellent standard throughout and furnished in a homely and welcoming style, Felldale has lots of space to entertain and relax, with all the rooms in the cottage looking out onto the fabulous views. Accommodation in detail A narrow country lane leads up to the cottage, following a spectacular drive over the Kirkstone Pass. The cottage is all on one floor: making access throughout the property easy, with only a few steps up to the second lounge. The first lounge has a Smart TV with Freesat and an open fire set in a large stone hearth (coal provided). The second lounge is a real feature room, with a large dining table; wood beams; Smart TV/DVD and micro CD player; an electric colour change fire; comfy furniture and access onto an excellent outdoor space. The terrace, with a large dining table, is the ideal BBQ or breakfast spot in the summer months. The property faces south/east, giving sun to the front and back gardens, which stretch up onto the fell side and provide lots of room to relax. The kitchen is well equipped with Neff appliances including; two ovens, a dishwasher, a nespresso coffee machine, and a separate utility room containing a second large American style fridge freezer and washer/dryer. Choose from any of the three comfortable and well - appointed bedrooms which serve as a welcome retreat at the end of the day. The first two bedrooms are doubles and the third is a twin. It is this third bedroom which contains the ensuite bathroom. The other bedrooms are complemented by a separate shower/toilet room and a family bathroom. The front half of the garage has been sectioned off to provide secure storage for mountain bikes, canoes and outside gear: making Felldale a fantastic facility for those with adventurous plans. The sloping driveway provides parking for three cars, with a secure level garden at the front of the cottage, making the most of the spectacular views, and an elevated terrace and patio area with more garden at the rear of the property. Location The inspiration for Wordsworth's 'Daffodills' Ullwater is the second largest lake in the English Lake District and is widely thought to be the most picturesque, being ideal for a self catering Lake District holiday. Travelling from the central Lakes over the stunning Kirkstone Pass you will drop down into the beautiful glacial carved landscapes surrounding the Lake itself, with many quaint villages along its shore line. The areas around the lake provide the perfect place for a restful and relaxed self-catering holiday, with plenty of opportunity for walking, exploring and getting out on the Lake. At the southern end of the Lake you will find Glenridding, a popular little village and an excellent base to explore plentiful challenging peaks but especially Helvellyn and Striding Edge . The area is excellent for either touring or relaxing and there are many walks from the cottage - The High Street Ridge, Place Fell, St. Sunday Crag and the Fairfield hills all being within striking distance. Ullswater is thought by many to be the most beautiful of all the lakes in the northern Lake District, being a serpentine body of water snaking a nine mile course under the lea of magnificent fells, woodland and mountain. Much of the lake, its shore and surrounding fells are accessible for visitors to explore, where you will find some of the finest walks and water activities, along with the amenities of the lakeside villages. One of the best walks in the National Park is the trail that runs along the eastern shores of Ullswater. Explored from the southern end of the lake, dominated by Place Fell, St Sunday Cragg, and Fairfield, you take the path from Glenridding over to the east side of the water. You will be able to ramble all day with a magnificent view always in your sight. For the return journey, board the steamboat from Howtown back to Glenridding. For those who like getting up high, there are some of the best mountains and fells on your doorstep, the most famous being Helvellyn and the precipitous Striding Edge.A gentler walk is Aira Force, probably the most famous of the Lake District waterfalls. The main force falls some 70ft below a stone footbridge - so don't forget your camera. Getting on the water is easy. You can take a boat cruise on one of the five beautiful steamers in the Ullswater Steamer fleet. They run the boats from Glenridding, with piers also at Pooley Bridge and Howtown. It's a great way to see the lake from a different perspective and well worth taking a camera.Boat hire is readily available, both at Glenridding and Pooley Bridge, where you have a varied selection of craft on offer including kayaks, sailing boats and little motorboats, along with hire of fishing tackle and licenses.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

Also, on the west side of the lake is the beautiful Aira Force Waterfall. It is one of the National Park’s most popular natural tourist attractions.
