The property

Penruddock 0.7 miles.

Set in the village of Motherby, close to Penrudduck, just 6 miles from Pooley Bridge on the shores of Ullswater and 11 miles from Keswick in the beautiful Lake District is this sandstone fronted cottage, which is in a beautiful, peaceful location with views across to the Ullswater fells.

Ideal for a relaxing break, it offers the opportunity to take in the refreshing Cumbrian air and to immerse yourself in the surrounding, spellbinding countryside.

The property offers spacious accommodation, which has been sympathetically renovated, with stone flag floors, beamed ceilings and an inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove.

On the ground floor, there is a wet room and a spacious open plan living area with patio doors leading out to the enclosed garden, while upstairs on the first floor, there are two bedrooms and a modern bathroom with lovely views, so after a day walking on the local fells, you can sink down into a lovely hot bath before taking a short walk across fields on the footpath to the village pub.

Outside, is a lovely garden with patio area and plenty of space to enjoy the views, both during the day and at night when the stars will be bright due to the rural location.

Situated on the edge of the Lake District, the beautiful village of Pooley Bridge, on the shores of Ullswater, is just a 12 minute drive away.

Here, you can embark on a cruise on the Ullswater Steamer and gently cruise down this enchanting lake to Glenridding, passing the impressive mountains that flank its sides.

Why not head up to Keswick and enjoy a day browsing around the host of shops and cafes or wander down to Borrowdale?

This cottage is also a very convenient base for sailors competing at Ullswater Yacht Club, as well as cyclists competing in the Cost-to-Coast cycle route.

This cosy holiday home is perfect for couples, families and friends to explore this popular area in a super village with a wonderful pub close by.

About the location


Keswick 11 miles; Penrith 6 miles.

The charming old village of Penruddock sits in a secluded position in the northern Lake District between Keswick and Penrith, and just four miles from Ullswater. The village is spread out amongst beautiful rolling countryside and wonderful scenery and is made up of a number of farm dwellings, traditional Lakeland homes and two churches. Penruddock originated in Celtic times, with the name derived from Pen, a Celtic name for 'hill' and 'rhuddawc' meaning red in Welsh to reflect the reddish brown colour of the soil found in the area. Nearby, the popular town of Keswick is the holiday centre of the north of the Lake District and has plenty to offer, boasting numerous shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering miniature golf, some good parks, the Theatre by the Lake, a charming cinema and the beautiful lake. Penruddock provides easy access to the spectacular surrounding Cumbrian countryside which can be explored by both car and on foot, and with the southern Lakes, Eden Valley, Solway Coast and Hadrian's Wall all within easy motoring distance this great location has plenty to see and do for all the family.
