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.

    Beautiful cottage situated a kilometer outside Glenridding on the route to the Helvellyn horseshoe walk. Peaceful. Enchanting. Private. Fell asleep to the sound of the bubbling stream at the back of the cottage. Tastefully furnished, and finished to a high quality. Highly recommended.

    Waterfall Wood cottage is in an idyllic location. We had a fabulous week; with amazing Autumnal weather and plenty of superb walks from the door. A cosy, warm cottage to come back to at the end of every day was great. Just a few little niggles; due to the cottage being on several levels all the doors have self closing hinges for fire safety reasons - however this makes for very, very noisy doors! You definitely can't creep around! The kitchen also wasn't as well equipt as it could have been and there could have been more sharp knives, chopping boards and glasses.
