Found at the start of a popular route up Helvellyn, 2 Low Glenridding is a perfect, stonebuilt cottage for up to four people and two dogs who want to explore the wonderful walking in the Ullswater area of the Lake District.
2 Low Glenridding is a stonebuilt, terraced Ullswater holiday cottage sleeping up to four people and welcoming up to two well-behaved dogs. The lovely patio takes in views towards Helvellyn and a cosy woodburner in the lounge is perfect for comfortable evenings. This wonderful cottage also boasts a double bedroom, a super king that can be made into twins, a shower room, and a designated parking space (with extra, on-road parking also available).
Ullswater is widely considered the most picturesque of all the Lake District lakes and, surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery on all sides, it's not hard to see why! 2 Low Glenridding is found in Glenridding on the shores of this picturesque lake. This lovely Lake District village, once well-known for mining, boasts a number of places to eat, outdoor shops, a jetty for the Ullswater Steamers and unrivalled walking. Experienced hikers will love Helvellyn, Swirrel Edge and Striding Edge, whilst those looking for a gentler time can enjoy family-friendly wanders to Lanty's Tarn and stunning Aira Force waterfall.
If you want to get onto the water, take one of the popular Ullswater Stewamers to any one of the jetties dotted around the lake, or hire your own boat for a more active time. If your preferred mode of transport comes with two wheels, you can take a bike ride round the lake and perhaps catch a Steamer back home to the wonderful 2 Low Glenridding.
For those looking to explore a little further afield, short drives will take you to several places of interest. Lother Castle is an imposing set of ruins with acres of grounds to explore and events taking place throughout the year. Dalemain is one of the most beautiful stately homes in the northwest of England and is famous for its annual marmalade festival! The pretty market town of Penrith has lots of independent shops, shopping arcades, castle ruins, and a market. Or, in the other direction, take the steep and rugged Kirkstone pass towards Windermere, from where you can visit the popular villages of Bowness-on-Windermere, Ambleside, and Grasmere.
