Waterfall Wood Cottage is quietly nestled within the Lake District and provides a luxurious base from which to explore the area.

Waterfall Wood Cottage, as the name suggests, is next to a waterfall, and positioned amongst woodland. It has been furnished to a high standard and is situated just above the village of Glenridding, on one of the main walking routes to Helvellyn. This traditional, stone-built cottage has excellent quality furnishings and every appliance to ensure guests’ comfort. A feature of the cottage is the sloping garden, where you can enjoy the fantastic views, and serene sound of the nearby waterfall. The cottage also benefits from underfloor heating. Situated a 10-minute walk away is Ullswater, where there are many lovely walks, including the spectacular Aira Force Waterfall. The less energetic could take a cruise on the Ullswater steamers and fish on the lake. Shop, pub and restaurant nearby in Glenridding and Patterdale within walking distance.

    A beautiful cottage in an idyllic location. Very spacious and perfectly presented. Amazing walks up Grisedale from the doorstep. Will certainly return for a second time.

    A really lovely property, the owners look to have put a lot of effort and hard work into the cottage .Had a really wonderful week despite a power cut in the village which lasted a couple of hours. But this did not effect our stay at all and the weather wasn't very good but we did manage to have short spells of sunshine!! Beautiful Countryside like shopping in Patterdale and Glenridding . Would recommend this cottage to couples and groups. not suitable for young children and elderly people.

    A stunning cottage in beautiful, tranquil and peaceful part of Ullswater. Very spacious with lots of character and charm. Very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Would stay here again without doubt. A credit to the owners who have really thought about all possible comforts and needs.

    A very pretty cottage, set up on the hillside, on the road (walking distance) to lots of great hikes. Unfortunately not too much of a view due to trees, though you are right over the lake. Well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds. Quite a few stairs to negotiate so not good for anyone for whom that is a problem. The town is lovely, very small and much less tourist-y than bigger and better known ones like Windermere. However restaurant choices are very limited, we mostly cooked in. Shopping about 20-30 min drive except for small local shop for conveniences. There is a washer but no dryer, a little challenging as the weather was wet most of the time we were there. Hope to return in the sunshine!

    Great location and a fine house, very quiet and ideal for walks direct from the door. Needs an upgrade to the kitchen stock such as dishes and cutlery. Heating Was not discovered and made it chilly on occasions and need instructions on use of DVDs! Minor only. An ideal location and a roomy house. Owners very helpful A great Lakeland house and location if you want quiet and walking.
