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.

“Beautiful cottage, perfect location”

We have just returned from a week in Cartmel, staying at Weavers Cottage.

What a delightful cottage this is, you feel at home as soon as you enter the beautiful dining kitchen which is full of high end appliances and leads to the spacious conservatory dining area and sunny outside seating area.

The cottage was immaculately clean and the beds lovely and comfortable.

It is in a ideal location, being only a few minutes walk from the racecourse and the centre of Cartmel with its many pubs and cafes.

There are many lovely walks that can be done from the cottage but if you prefer to travel further afield Cartmel is also a perfect location for exploring the beautiful Lake District.

We would not hesitate to return – Gill Ellison

“Excellent!”

We have just spent the last seven days in this delightful cottage.

From the moment we arrived all six of us fell in love with it and by the end of the stay I was imagining myself living there on a permanent basis.

The open plan kitchen was a dream and all the appliances and crockery were of a high standard.

There was no fighting for the best bedroom as each one was as beautiful as the next.

The location was great as there were so many places we found to explore, on foot and by car.

We had been advised that the mobile phone coverage was poor but Vodafone coverage in the cottage was strong and no complaints at all from anyone on the wifi which worked 100% of the time.

We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough and I must say dealing with Simon has been an absolute pleasure. His one aim was ensure we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Charcoal Cottage, thank you Simon – Jan Muir, Hampshire
