A well positioned property, with an open fire and panoramic views of the fells around Ullswater.

The Gables nestles into the fell side above Glenridding, with fabulous panoramic views of the fells around Ullswater. Helvellyn may be accessed directly from the doorstep and with many other beautiful walks in the area your car may be parked up for the week. The Travellers Rest Inn is within 1/4 mile with shops and cafes in the centre of the village approximately 1/2 mile. Glenridding is well positioned to visit both the Northern and Southern Lakes, with the popular tourist towns of Keswick and Ambleside nearby.
The Aira Force waterfall is three miles along the lake shore and Kirkstone Pass is a similar distance in the opposite direction. You can take a trip around the Ullswater Steamer and with other visitor attractions, such as Rheged and Rookin House Activity Centre close by, your holiday may be action packed or just relax in the attractive Lakeland garden and enjoy the tremendous views.

    * The cottage bathrooms were dirty on arrival. * The bannister was broken in need of repair, and posed a safety risk for my two small children. * A number of the outside lights were not working. * Instructions were followed to leave rubbish in a white bag on top of gate wall, but after doing so an animal had torn into it and spread rubbish all over the space which I had to clean up. * The cottage lacked a washing machine. * The cottage is generally unsuitable for children.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. Regarding the bathrooms, I will be taking this up with my cleaner. One bannister pole was indeed broken previously and unfortunately there wasn’t time to get it fixed before your arrival. However, the cleaner / manager had it in hand for it to be repaired and indeed an additional hand rail to be fitted to stop guests pulling on the bannister. We were also waiting for the electricians to inspect / repair the outside lights. As regards the rubbish, it is a requirement that we leave the white bag out for collection and not in a bin. We shall look into the possibility of some sort of acceptable, white bag container with the refuge collectors. The cottage has never been advertised as offering washing machine facilities. It is a matter of opinion as to whether or not it is suitable for children. We have had several bookings with children with good reports. The cleaners have advised me that unfortunately upon departure, the property was found to be left in an unacceptable condition which therefore required extra cleaning. I shall contact the cleaner / manager of the cottage for an update on the repairs but I can assure you that the comfort and wellbeing of our guests is very important. The cottage has been booked out each week, almost the full year without many problems, however, any damages or problems that do occur are usually seen to as promptly as possible.

    The location is ideal. The cottage is very comfortable with lovely garden and views. The living / dining area is quite small for 4 people. A washing machine would be a distinct improvement, especially for anyone staying for longer than one week.
