Second time we've stayed at the cottage over New Year and it didn't disappoint. A well equipped, spacious but very warm and cosy cottage. Fantastic views over the fields and hills of Glennridding. Shops, cafes and pubs within easy walking distance. Ulleswater Steamers just down the road and well worth going on. Couldn't recommend the cottage highly enough and the...

Plenty of short and longer walks, places to eat, drink, buy...

We booked this cottage for a family wedding at Inn on the Lake. It was fantastic value for our 6 guests and had everything we needed. Glenridding is a lovely quiet village & ideal for walking, the cottage is ideally located for walks up Helvellyn. Would recommend.

Management response:

Hello Andrew and thank you for your review for Stybarrow Cottage. The cottage is well located for weddings at the Inn on the Lake with not too far to stagger back after the celebrations. Hope the wedding went well and that you will come and stay again. Christine

About the neighbourhood
Glenridding enjoys a beautiful setting at the southern end of Ullswater lake. Surrounded by mountains, there are superb Lakeland vistas and glimpses of the lake everywhere you look.

The village has everything you might need on holiday: cafés, pubs, shops, Steamer trips, boat hire and sailing tuition. There is also a National. park Information Centre, medical centre and petrol station and garage.

You can enjoy challenging mountain walks such as Striding Edge, Helvellyn, Fairfield, St Sunday Crag and High Street as well as more leisurely valley strolls. You can take the steamer to Howtown and then walk the lakeshore path back to Patterdale and Glenridding or explore the new off road path to Aira Force with its majestic waterfalls.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Manchester: 150.0 km
Railway: Penrith: 25.0 km
If you arrive by car, you have two wonderful choices. From the north, you can drive alongside the lake with glimpses of the high fells. From the south, you come over Kirkstone Pass, which at 500 m offers a stunning introduction to the Ullswater valley.

If you are planning to spend your holiday exploring the Ullswater valley, a car isn't necessary. There is a year round bus service to Penrith and a summer bus service to Windermere as well as a local taxi service. If you want to visit towns such as Keswick and Ambleside, a car is advised.
