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.
How to get there
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.
