Description from owner


Set back from the main Hall and nestling in its own woodland garden is the former Dairy. Sympathetically converted, the Dairy offers accommodation for up to 2 guests (a couple). Its layout is fairly unique with mezzanine type sleeping accommodation via a steep wooden ladder.

Bedding and towels are provided. The Dairy has a fully equipped compact kitchen and a shower room on the ground floor. Tea and coffee basics are provided for your arrival so you can arrange a hot drink before you unpack. Unlike many other venues, we provide tea towels, an oven glove, cooking oil and salt and pepper with the intention to make your stay as stress free and comfortable as possible.

On top of the central heating, the Dairy is equipped with a wood-burning stove and there is a supply of logs just outside.

With the Dairy comes a good sized private wooded garden with BBQ and picnic bench. There is parking for up to two cars right outside the Dairy.

Due to unique style of the Dairy, it is not suitable for those who struggle on their feet. Unavoidable stone steps lead down to the front door.

There is free WiFi in the Dairy. The Dairy is just a 10 minute walk away from the villages of Glenridding and Patterdale, where you will find a couple of shops, pubs and cafes.

Please note that Vodafone is currently the only mobile phone coverage in the immediate area, others are available just a short drive out of the village ( or on top of the surrounding hills!).

Prior to your arrival we will email you a link to a video about the Dairy which covers certain health + safety elements of the Dairy. You will need to complete an online form to confirm all guests have seen this.

“Perfect stay”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2019

Lovely, cosy and warm little cottage, in lovely rural setting. Large, safe and secure garden for dog. The Dairy has everything you need for a comfortable stay with Patterdale Hall staff close by should you need them. 10 minutes walk to Glenridding and Patterdale and Ullswater steamers close by. Looking forward to returning to The Dairy again soon.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the review. Hope to see you again soon. Regards Tim

“Great place to be”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2019

The dairy is in a lovely setting. My dogs loved the garden and we loved the property! It would have got top marks but for the bed. The main bed wasn’t very comfortable and the bed settee in the lounge was much worse! We would love to stay there again but the lack of sleep and backache kind of puts us off. We cannot fault anything else about this place and really did enjoy our stay! Hopefully, one day, we will go back to The Dairy

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. We are looking into the bed situation. There is the third option of the double mattress of course. Regards Tim
