Ullswater out and about

Our Ullswater cottages are placed across the region to give you the opportunity to see and to experience some great Lake District attractions. Ullswater’s most popular tourist attraction is the Ullswater Steamer. Originally designed to ferry mail, mineworkers and goods to and from the Greenside mine from the 1850s, in 1962 it was converted in to a boat tour. The tour travels from Ullswater to Glenridding, with a stop at Howtown. You can board at any three of the piers. Many people catch the ferry from Glenridding to Howtown and walk back along the shore. Popular sights in close by Pooley Bridge include the 16th century bridge. It crosses the River Eamont and gives the village its namesake. Eamont is overlooked by Dunmallard Hill, an iron age fort, which is another popular tourist hot spot.

Ullswater has a strong nautical history, having been a popular sailing destination for centuries. There are marinas placed all around the lake. A select few properties are lucky enough to have their own private jetty on the lake shore. On 23 July 1955, Donald Campbell set the water speed record of 202.37 mph, in the jet-propelled hydroplane Bluebird k7. Ullswater is also home to the annual Lord Birkett Memorial Trophy. Each year at the first weekend in July, 200+ sailing boats compete in two races. They span the full length of the lake in the hope of winning the prestigious award. The competition can be felt in the air and makes for a great spectator sport!

Ullswater was a popular area for quintessential Lake District poet William Wordsworth. One visit in the Spring of 1802 inspired his most famous poem ‘Daffodils’. If you are travelling to Ullswater with children, you may be interested in Pony Trekking at Park Foot, or the Rookin House Activity Centre. Another fun day out for children are the Tale Trails, which are a series of story walks throughout the area. There is a good play park in the grounds of the Sun Inn in Pooley Bridge.

Ullswater is situated on an extremely popular cycle route. It has connections back to Ambleside and Windermere via the infamous Kirkstone Pass. This road is also suitable for cars and other vehicles throughout the year.
