Glenridding and Southern Ullswater

The village of Glenridding lies at the southern end of Ullswater at the foot of the Kirkstone Pass. It’s an excellent cottage holiday base camp from which to explore the Lake District. Whether you want to scale Helvellyn, the third highest mountain in England, or wander about the calming lakes, a cottage in Glenridding will leave you feeling relaxed and restored.

The area is thought to be amongst the most beautiful in the Lakes. Once a thriving lead mining town, Glenridding is now geared mostly towards tourists, but the scenery remains unspoiled. Breathtaking fells and valleys provide hikes for a range of abilities, but if heights aren’t your thing, try a cruise on one of the famous Ullswater Lake steamers. The ‘Lady of the Lake’ dates back to 1877 and a journey down the 7.5 mile lake is a leisurely way to take in the spectacular scenery, with opportunities to explore Howtown and Pooley Bridge.

The Sailing Centre at Glenridding offer dinghies, kayaks, traditional boats and windsurfs for hire. Take to the water for an expedition with your family or book a lesson with one of the centre’s expert sailing tutors to really get a taste of life on the lakes. Visit the Inn on the Lake - a totally unique dining experience out on the water, with traditional afternoon teas and superb home cooked food.

The landscape around Glenridding is magnificent throughout the year and there is no better place to experience it than from the top of Place Fell. With views from Ullswater over to the Helvellyn range, you’re sure to be inspired by nature unbounded.
