Ullswater

Stretching for nine miles and framed by the great Eastern Fells, Ullswater is renowned as England's most beautiful lake featuring spectacular waterfalls around its shoreline like the famous Aira Force beloved by Wordsworth and a huge choice of land and water based outdoor activities from challenging fell walks up from Glenridding to the Helvellyn Edges to fishing, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and raft sailing all widely available from watersports centres lining the lake at Pooley Bridge and Watermillock.

Ullswater Steamers run regularly around the Ullswater, stopping at major centres like Glenridding Pier making it easy to move around and popular attractions around Ullwater as well as the Aira Force Waterfalls Walk include the beautiful Dalemain House and Gardens near the northern shore which hosts a string of events and craft/ food fairs.

A choice of caravan and campsites sit directly around Ullswater and great accommodation bases offering a wide choice of B&Bs, cottages and inns with rooms include bustling market town Pooley Bridge on the north shore with its famed farmers' market (last Sunday of each month from April to September) and choice of cafes, shops and fine Good Beer Guide recommended inns. To the south both Glenridding and Patterdale contain a great choice of character B&Bs, cottages and small hotels plus a selection of walker friendly cafes and inns.
