Ullswater is the second largest lake in the Lake District, being approximately 9 miles (14.5 kilometres) long and nearly a mile wide (1,200 metres) with a depth of more than 60 metres (197 ft.).

Ullswater is a typical Lake District narrow “ribbon lake” formed after the last ice age when a glacier scooped out the valley floor, the deepened section filled with melt water when the glacier retreated, and it became a lake. The surrounding mountains give Ullswater the shape of an elongated “Z” giving it three separate segments (or “reaches”) that wind their way through the surrounding mountains and fells.

The village of Glenridding, situated at the southern end of the lake, is popular with tourists but especially so with mountain walkers who can scale England’s third highest mountain, Helvellyn, and many other challenging peaks. This part of Ullswater is surrounded by spectacular high mountains, waterfalls and breathtaking scenery.

The Village of Pooley Bridge lies at the northern end of the lake where the landscape is more genteel. Its narrow 16th-century bridge straddles the River Eamont as it flows out of Ullswater and is overlooked by Dunmallard Hill which was the site of an Iron Age fort.

The road from Pooley Bridge takes you south through the beautiful Lowther Valley and in less than 20 minutes’ drive you arrive at our gorgeous 5 star Lake District cottage – Rose Farm in the picturesque little hamlet of Rosgill.

Ullswater’s attractions include the Ullswater ‘Steamers’ which offer trips around the lake calling at Pooley Bridge, Glenridding, and Howtown. The ‘Steamers’ operate all year round.

You can catch the ‘Steamer’ from Glenridding at the southern end of the lake to Howtown which is about half way up the lake on the eastern shore. This then offers you a fantastic 2½ hour walk back to Glenridding along the lakeshore. This is one of the most stunning scenic low level walks in the Lake District. Virtually the entire walk is on good footpaths that are a long way from any roads. You can stop off at various bays on the shore of the lake for a picnic or to just relax and lap up the peace and quiet with a backdrop of spectacular scenery and mountain views.

Ullswater is very popular as a sailing location with sailing marinas situated around the lake. The lake has a speed limit that deters noisy motor boats and the lake is dotted with several sailing yachts, especially at weekends.

Dotted around the lake are several facilities for diving and hiring rowing boats and small motorboats.

Another of Ullswater’s attractions is the spectacular waterfalls of Aira Force midway along the lake on the western side.

Ullswater and the Lowther Valley are truly wonderful places.

Carree Cottage Reviews

From Email:-

We had a lovely week at Carree Cottage.

The accommodation and facilities were very good, as was the weather!

I am more familiar with the Central and Northern Lakes and this was our first visit to the Lake District Peninsulas. It’s different but equally attractive. Hopefully it won’t be our last – Stephen Hague, Poringland, Norfolk

Cartmel Hill Reviews

From Email:-

The quality of everything was great, you could tell you have taken time to get it all just right.

The house worked really well in terms of the layout. The children loved the games room and thought the keyboard was great.

We absolutely dropped on with the weather but even when it went cooler the summer house was perfect.

I have recommended you to friends and we are also trying to work out plans to return next summer for a longer period.

Many thanks, and we hope to visit again soon.  If you ever decide to sell up please let us know, we would move there in a flash! – Lisa Kenrick

Carree Cottage Reviews

From Email:-

Well, what a “blast from the past” this weekend has been!

I had forgotten what a wonderful childhood I had.

Carree cottage and Cark have reminded me of how simple and lovely life used to be.  Being able to roam for miles without any traffic to worry about, hardly seeing a soul whilst listening to nature and watching the constantly changing landscape, then coming back home starving, picking up a freshly baked loaf from the local bakery and toasting it on the warm and cosy real fire, spreading it with lashings of real butter and washing it down with a hot mug of tea, there really is nothing finer in my book!

The cottage is quirky and very charming, retaining many of it’s original features whilst still providing all of the modern luxuries you would expect, like a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom (sorry to disappoint but no tin bath in front of the fire!) But it does have very comfortable beds.  In fact all the right ingredients to ensure you have a very relaxing stay in a quaint little village that has all the shops and dog friendly pubs you will need.

The Engine Inn serves food, great hand pulled beers and has a big roaring fire creating a lovely atmosphere where everyone is friendly and happy to have a chat.  Brilliant!

The Rose and Crown is just a couple of minutes up the road where you can sit out on the terrace with a drink overlooking Morecambe bay.

Whilst in the area a visit to Cartmel is only a 3 minute drive or 20 minute’s walk away where you can browse the eclectic shops before picking up some lovely cheeses and wine to accompany the locally bought bread from the bakery.  Oh, and don’t forget the famous sticky toffee pudding too!

If like me you fondly reminisce about how good things used to be, but still like the luxuries of today, then this might just be the place you’re looking for!

Thank you Simon and your brilliant team for delivering yet another memorable holiday!

Lynne, Rob, Catherine and Sonny
