About this location

The Lake District

The cottage is located between Patterdale and Glenridding in the English Lake District with stunning views to the front of the foothills of Helvellyn. Glenridding is in an ideal location in the heart of the Lake District. It lies at the foot of Helvellyn, and next to the beautiful Ullswater, England's second longest Lake. There are a range of good pubs and restaurants in both villages and nearby Patterdale has a Post Office and general store, with the nearest pub being just 500 yards from the cottage. There are also a good range of local shops. The holiday cottage is just 20 minutes drive from Penrith, Windermere, Keswick and Ambleside. As well as Helvellyn itself, the fells High Street, Place Fell, Fairfield, Sunday Crag and Dollywaggon Pike are all nearby.

"Great cottage, great location = great holiday"

Cottage: cosy, comfortable, well-equipped, warm & welcoming - & great having the wood burner at this time of year! Retains the traditional charm without feeling old-fashioned which was lovely. Location: smack bang in the middle of the mountains, walking distance of Glenridding & Patterdale with plenty of pubs & shops & restaurants. Only took the car out once, snow on the mountains, steamer on the lake, all added up to a great holiday for us & Hugo (dog), & looking forward to being back in June.

Glad you liked it despite the good old Cumbrian weather!

"Lovely warm cottage in a beautiful place"

We had a wonderful time staying in Keeper's Cottage. The cottage is well equipped, cosy and warm. Patterdale is a great base for walking in the Lake District fells, with Helvellyn, Place Fell and the High Street peaks on the doorstep.

Thank you for the review and thanks for leaving the cottage lovely and clean.

"Lovely cosy cottage in tranquil location"

Tucked away at the back of the Grisedale Lodge Hotel where we stayed a few years ago finds Keepers Cottage - an ideal base for exploring the Patterdale area. The cottage is plenty big enough for two and a dog and is furnished in keeping with its age and character with all mod cons. We loved it and have booked again for the same time next year!

Glad you had a nice stay.Thank you

"Never fails to deliver"

Just as good as previous stays with the added bonus that the rear courtyard garden had been much improved and was now very enticing to sit out there and relax with a nice glass of wine.
Excellent location with numerous walks from the cottage door so didn't use the car for all of our stay. Excellent accommodation for 2 people with a well fitted out kitchen.

Thank you.
Good to hear the back garden works!

"Excellent 2 person cottage"

We stayed a week in Keepers Cottage. It is a very comfortable base, a quiet location but an easy walk to nearby villages. Some good longer walks nearby. We appreciated the fully equipped kitchen that made it easy to stay in to cook dinner a couple of times.

Thank you,nice to hear you enjoyed it.

"Charming Cottage in Lovely Area"

Keepers Cottage is a very charming and comfortable cottage in a safe location within easy walking distance of both Glenridding and Patterdale. The cottage is attractive and very thoughtfully furnished with everything you need - perfect for two adults and, in our case, two dogs.
The surrounding area is lovely: it was a delight to walk the dogs into Glenridding to the local shops and the lake and sit in the outside cafe at the boatyard. There are boat trips on the lake, stunning scenery and it is a wonderful area for walking with several delightful walks right from the door.
We felt that the cottage was good value for money, the owner was extremely helpful and considerate and it was a really wonderful area for a holiday.

Thank you.
Hope to see you again.

"Perfect, beautiful and cosy cottage. Can't wait to book again! Ideal location too"

I booked a weekend deal for myself, my husband and our jack Russell Billy. It's in a perfect spot, in between Patterdale and Glenridding in Ullswater. Easy to find, tucked away down the side of … More

You're welcome back anytime.

"Perfect cosy retreat for two in a lovely part of the Lake District"

Keeper's Cottage is a lovely cottage and an ideal place to stay for walkers or any couple wanting a quiet, peaceful break in a place of real beauty in Lakeland. This cosy cottage has everything that is required for self catering but there are many good eating places nearby if you would rather someone else do the cooking. The location is ideal for many walks to some of the most famous peaks in Lakeland straight from the door. There are also many good level walks for those not wanting to climb hills, especially around the shores of Ullswater. We would have no hesitation in booking the same cottage again for a future break.

Thank you very much,glad you enjoyed your stay.

"A peaceful holiday in a lovely little cottage with fantastic walking from the door."

Keepers Cottage is a little gem and a credit to owner James. We have taken many cottage holidays over the past few years but this is the only property we have re-visited and in fact shall be making a third visit in 2015. Although small, the cottage is well equiped, cosy and has a lovely open gallery bed room and bathroom. For dog owners like us, you may find the outdoor space a little restricted - pity there isn't a little bit more garden but please don't let this put you off. A very quiet setting away from the road yet only 10 mins walk in either direction to villages where food, drink and provisions can be obtained. Walking from the door is fantastic with something for every one.

Thank you,Glad you enjoy Keepers cottage.
