A traditional Lakeland stone cottage set high up in the fells above Ullswater. The ultimate peaceful place for complete stillness and silence.

Stunning views all around.. walk directly onto the fells and leave the car behind for the week. The drive from the main road is stunning: narrow, twisty and with wide sensational views at every turn; you are in the quietest valley but still at 1,200 feet. The cottage, like any well-loved family home, is crammed with original art, photographs, books, games, open fires and much else to excite young and old.
