100 metres to Brotherswater
This large detached stone family house was originally built in the 18th century and stands in a wonderful position beside Brotherswater which is on the Ullswater to Ambleside road at the start of Kirkstone pass. A superb base for a fell-walking, climbing or mountain biking holiday, the cottage is surrounded by spectacular craggy lakeland scenery. Nestling between the Helvellyn and High Street range of mountains, there are countless footpaths to explore nearby. Totally renovated, this house provides a well equipped central holiday base from which to explore the lakes and fells. Ullswater is just a short drive away where, during the summer months, you can take the Lake Steamer from Glenridding to Howtown and Pooley Bridge. Ambleside is 6 miles away and has a pretty town centre with shops, galleries and tea rooms. Also within easy reach is Lake Windermere 15 miles, Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage, the Beatrix Potter exhibition and the Brockhole Visitor Centre. Shop 2 miles, pub with food ½ mile, (4 pubs within 2 miles).
