Situated in the unspoilt village of Uldale, The Grooms Cottage has been lovingly created as a cosy and romantic retreat for two and offers high quality accommodation nestled in the beautiful scenery of the north Lakes. The village of Uldale captures countryside life that has remained unchanged for years with a village pub and church, working farms, quaint cottages and a village green. This property has recently been featured in The Cumberland News and also the award winning Cumbria Life magazine, where you can find its highly complimented write ups.
Originally built for the Groomsman from the neighbouring Old Rectory, this beautiful cottage is presented with all the accommodation on the ground floor. From the bespoke, handmade oak kitchen, the hand crafted bedroom furniture, the romantic four poster bed, the cosy lounge, the luxurious wet room, the local photography, the honesty larder of local produce and the delightful walled garden, The Grooms Cottage is one of the most romantic hideaways we have ever come across.
Stepping back outside the cottage is ideally placed to enjoy a selection of gentle walks from the door, wander up to the Snooty Fox with a selection of local ales and great home cooked food. The popular market town of Keswick is just 20 minutes away and for those seeking out the thrills of the high fells the views from the northern fells of Skiddaw and Blencathra are some of the best in the Lake District.

Stepping outside the beautiful walled garden is a real treat with large lawn, well planted borders, secure bike storage and a patio with bistro garden furniture, all overlooking the meadows and the lane to the farm that is used by the local farmer to take the cows, twice a day, to be milked at the neighbouring farm.
Uldale overlooks the Ellen Valley and is in the vicinity of the Uldale fells. It has a traditional feel with miles of drystone walls and farmland. Nearby you will find Lakes such as Bassenthwaite and Overwater and the striking Northern Fells of Skiddaw and Blencathra.
The area benefits from being quieter and less commercialised than some of the other Lakeland towns and villages yet is only a short drive to the popular market town of Keswick.
