This is a first floor holiday flat, situated in a mews accommodation block in the grounds of the Inn on the Lake Hotel, at Glenridding on Ullswater, Cumbria. The hotel has excellent facilities, beautiful gardens and boasts some of the finest views to be found in the Lake District. It is a very popular hotel and hosts weddings throughout the year.
The flat is well equipped and is cosy and comfortable and would suit a family or small group of friends. This is the perfect place to relax or to enjoy the full range of activities the outdoors can give you.
Ullswater is a great location from which to sample all the benefits a Lakes holiday has to offer. Fantastic views, great places to eat and drink and wonderful lake cruises. Glenridding also provides a superb base for walking and other outdoor activities: Classic high level walks, including Striding Edge and Swirral Edge on Helvellyn. Beautiful and varied low level walks by the lake or in the surrounding valleys cater for all levels of ability. Sailing, Pony Trekking, Quad Biking and Fishing are all also only a short distance away. (Fishing Permits are available from the nearby Visitor Centre. Ullswater holds char, schelley, perch, pike and brown trout. The trout season runs from 15th march to the 30th September).
The flat has two bedrooms:
Bedroom one: one double bed
Bedroom two: A family room with a 4'.6" double bed and a full sized bunk bed
NB. Guests need to provide their own, bed linen and towels while pillows, blankets and duvets are provided. The double bed mattresses are 10" thick, so sheets or deep fitted bottom sheets are recommended.
Lounge has a double Futon so an extra couple can be accommodated
Secure storage for bicycles and canoes can be arranged if required.
While the flat has a clothes dryer, I am sorry to say that we cannot fit a washing machine in. Nearest launderette is Penrith.

Stunning views, wondrous natural features and an ever changing landscape make this a 'must see 'location for your holiday.

Glenridding has glorious views across Ullswater towards Place Fell. The jetties line up perfectly with Silver Point and is one of the most photographed views in the Lake District.
