    “Great Experience ”

    Wordsworth Cottage is a deceptively large and well-equipped property with a blend of old-world charm along with modern creature comforts.
    The location is fantastic being a short distance from Ullswater, and the nearby scenery breathtaking.
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage.

    This very well equipped property has spectacular views of the surrounding fells. The cottage is idyllically located in a quiet position in the picturesque village of Patterdale. It is within easy walking distance of local pubs and shops and only a mile from the shores of Ullswater.

    The famous Ullswater Steamers operate between Glenridding Pier, Pooley Bridge and Howtown from where you can walk back to the property along the popular lakeshore walk, and attractions such as Dalemain House, Aira Force arboretum and falls, the Kirkstone Pass and Rheged are within a short drive, and of course fabulous scenery is all around!

    The area has lots to offer - activities such as cycling, walking, sailing, horse riding, country pursuits and outdoor adventure activities are all available locally.

    Patterdale is a popular base for touring, being in the central Lakes, with popular centres such as: Penrith, Keswick, Windermere and Ambleside - all being within a 30 minute drive.

    Wordsworth Cottage is nestled under Place Fell, which gives access to the High Street range and with Helvellyn close by; there is great walking from the front door and routes for all abilities. You can also follow in Alfred Wainwright’s footsteps – at least 3 of his walks pass through the village.

    This stylish cottage once owned by the well-known poet William Wordsworth and with links to the arts and craft era is available for short breaks and longer holidays. The perfect retreat!
