Ullswater cottages

Ullswater cottages

Ullswater is one of the most scenic of the Cumbrian lakes. The lake bends and twists its way through spectacular panoramas against a backdrop of mountain scenery on one side and a gently curving shoreline of green fields and woodlands on the other. The perfect way to enjoy Ullswater is by taking a cruise on one of the steamers, with sailings all year round. There are regular sailings between Pooley Bridge and Glenridding, calling at Howtown on the eastern shore. Many walks start in the Ullswater Valley, from low-level strolls along the shoreline to the trek up to Helvellyn, the third highest mountain in the Lake District and one of the most admired peaks in Britain. Straddling the River Eamont at the head of Ullswater, Pooley Bridge is graced by its 16t- century bridge. Watermillock is a scattered collection of farms and cottages on the western. A little further down the lake is Aira Force, probably the most famous of the Lake District waterfalls. The main force falls 70 feet from below a stone footbridge and provides a glimpse of a landscaped Victorian park with dramatic waterfalls, arboretum and rocky scenery. Glenridding enjoys a dramatic setting at the southern end of Ullswater, surrounded on three sides by fells. The village is popular with walkers as it is the starting point of the classic ascent of Helvellyn along Striding Edge. Close to Glenridding at the foot of Ullswater, is the small village of Patterdale – another popular area for Helvellyn-bound walkers and the surrounding fells and peaks. Howtown is a quiet hamlet on the eastern side of Ullswater. The walk back from Howtown along the eastern edge of the lake to Patterdale is one of the finest lower-level walks in the Lake District.
