1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5

About the neighbourhood
Out and About! Make the most of our ideal location! Situated on the eastern fringe of the Lake District and only footsteps away from the Eden Valley, we are ideally located to explore this diverse landscape from high fells to the more intimate valleys. Bring your boots and bikes and explore! Venture up onto the wide open Cumbrian Fells - bag a Wainwright or take a more leisurely 'Tale Trail' with the family. Recreational and experienced road cyclists and mountain bikers will be in their element, as will those on horseback. There are a range of other activities to suit families, individuals & groups alike. Try rock climbing, ghyll scrambling, canoeing, bushcraft & archery near Ullswater or outdoor photography and mountain skills courses.
