Stunning mountain scenery, walks from the door, beautiful Ullswater lake less than 10 minutes way and all the village services you might need on holiday ....Stybarrow Cottage is the ideal holiday home from home. A delightful, well equipped holiday cottage with all the comforts of home.

Located in the village of Glenridding in the Ullswater valley in the heart of the Lake District National Park, our cottage provides lovely holiday accommodation for up to 6 people. The open plan ground floor has a modern kitchen, lovely dining area and comfortable lounge with a traditional open fire. So even if it's your turn to cook, you can still join in the banter.

A wooden staircase leads to the first floor where there is a twin bedroom and a double bedroom as well as a family bathroom, separate shower room and a second toilet. The top floor is gorgeous .... a comfy double bed where you can enjoy views of the night stars and a lovely seating area which looks out over Keldas and Place Fell. The cottage has its own garden with garden furniture for you to use and is surrounded by Lake District scenery.

There are numerous walks from the cottage door so there is no need to move your car. You can tackle challenging walks such as Striding Edge and Helvellyn, Fairfield and St Sundays Crag or High Street or enjoy more leisurely low level walks such as Aira Force or take the steamer to Howtown and walk back via Side Farm tea room.

Ullswater lake is close to the cottage and offers plenty of opportunities for messing about on the lake. You can can hire a rowing boat or motor boat or have a go at sailing or canoeing. Or you can take a picnic to the lake shore and have a swim or a paddle.

About this location

The Lake District

The Lake District National Park ....... Inspiring mountain scenery, challenging fell walks and climbing, leisurely valley walks, Lakes and tarns for messing about on, beautiful villages with traditional tea rooms and pubs, a landscape that is loved and cherished by millions.

The Lake District is a special corner of the world. Each valley has its own character and charm. There is something for everyone. Many of our visitors return year after year. Maybe at a different time of year to enjoy a different season; maybe for some peace and quiet; maybe for the challenge of long days in the hills followed by a pint in the local pub.

The Lake District offers wonderful holiday opportunities and it also a special place where people live and work.


Glenridding enjoys a beautiful setting at the southern end of Ullswater lake. Surrounded by mountains, there are superb Lakeland vistas and glimpses of the lake everywhere you look.

The village has everything you might need on holiday: cafés, pubs, shops, Steamer trips, boat hire and sailing tuition. There is also a National. park Information Centre, medical centre and petrol station and garage.

You can enjoy challenging mountain walks such as Striding Edge, Helvellyn, Fairfield, St Sunday Crag and High Street as well as more leisurely valley strolls. You can take the steamer to Howtown and then walk the lakeshore path back to Patterdale and Glenridding or explore the new off road path to Aira Force with its majestic waterfalls.
