Helvellyn

“Legend and poetry, a lovely name and a lofty altitude combine to encompass Helvellyn in an aura of romance; and thousands of pilgrims, aided by its easy accessibility, are attracted to its summit every year” , said famed fell-walker Alfred Wainwright in his Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells.

The Eastern side of Helvellyn is the most dramatic, with the summit encircled by Striding Edge and Swirral Edge.

The summit of Helvellyn is very flat and in 1926 John Leeming and Bert Hinkler landed a plane on it.

The moment is commemorated on a plaque, as is the life of Charles Gough, who died attempting to cross Striding Edge in 1805. His faithful dog stayed by his body for 3 months until both were discovered.

Out and about in Helvellyn

Walking is the obvious choice here and there’s lots of testing walks to do, but if you don’t have a head for heights or want a ‘take it easy’ day, you can enjoy the scenery a less energetic way.

There are lots of nice walks, including Easedale Tarn, in Grasmere and Buttermere and from our Helvellyn cottages around Glenridding there’s beautiful trails around Ullswater.

Or kick-back onboard a boat from Ullswater Steamers or Glenridding Pier House and take in the picturesque fells.

Or perhaps get yourself some sailing lessons – what better place than the setting of Ullswater.

There’s plenty to get out and see in to enjoy the fresh air.

For culture – there’s the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick for keen theatre-goers and for those of you who enjoy the romantic poets, there’s Dove Cottage at Grasmere, the former home of William Wordsworth.

From our Helvellyn cottages near Glenridding you can visit Glencoyne Bay at Ullswater, where in April 1802, William and Dorothy Wordsworth passed the strip of land on their way back to Grasmere, which was full of daffodils – and which was the inspiration for his renowned poem.

William Wordsworth was a frequent visitor to the Ullswater area, and the area inspired him to write many poems, including ‘The Somnambulist’ – an ancient tale of knightly love and death – inspired by Aira Force.

‘And, after a day on the fells or soaking up some culture, you’ll want a good meal and there are many eateries and restaurants within easy reach of from our Helvellyn cottages around Glenridding, where you’ll find there’s plenty of local culinary delights to sample.

Our cottages are ideally located so you can go from your front door to the fells, making them the perfect base for a walking holiday or sight-seeing breakaway.
