Holiday Cottages in Ullswater & the Eden Valley

Ullswater is the second largest of the Lake District’s bodies of water and the surrounding scenery is a tale of two halves, with dramatic mountains to the south softening to gentle fells in the north. So Ullswater has it all. The village of Pooley Bridge, on the northern tip of Ullswater, is the most visited in the area and has a wonderful ‘resort-like’ atmosphere. Here you’ll find a relaxing mix of evening dining, river-side terraces and gift shops.

Pleasure cruises from Pooley Bridge, with Ullswater Steamers, are a relaxing way to take in the scenery and explore further afield. The Lake District’s famous Aira Force waterfall is a must-do stop off on the western shore, alongwith a walk to William Wordsworth’s famous daffodil spot, Glencoyne Bay.

Glenridding, on the southern tip of Ullswater, is where many walkers start the walk to bag the region’s second highest mountain, Helvellyn.

Nestled in the eastern corner of the Lake District you’ll find the Eden Valley, a gentle vale of meadows, pretty little villages and laid-back country living. Arthurian legends have left a scattering of attractions to be visited, stone circles and castle remains. There are several sprawling country manors that host big events, like the World’s Original Marmalade Festival at Dalemain House and Gardens, Pot Fest, the UK’s largest ceramics festival held at Hutton in the Forest, and top music festival, Kendal Calling at Lowther Castle and Gardens.

Ullswater and the Eden Valley are well served by the market town of Penrith as well as several superb services on the outskirts, indulging the Rheged Centre, the Producers Hall at Tebay and a busy calendar of farmers markets, including the award-winning Orton Farmers Market.

Ullswater and the Eden Valley is a paradise of glorious rolling countryside away from the crowds but with stacks on offer.
