  • "Lovely location for walks from doorstep, quaint cottage equipt for everything you would wish for."

    The only negative was the double bed was not so comfortable as it’s a metal base and it felt it had a bar in the middle of the bed!!

  • "Well equipped Cottage , very clean upon arrival."

    Loved the garden which was properly enclosed for our small dog. Handy parking spot. All in all comfortable and cosy. Thank you we had a great week.

  • "Great location, very good facilities, enclosed garden (which is great for the dog), off street car parking space, walking distance to the Lake (and the Ullswater Steamer) and you can spend the whole week starting your walking from the property."

    We would stay again.

    A slight warning for the old/less able bodied, stairs are very steep. Beautiful garden. Well recommended.

    Only gripe being the mattress on double bed was way too soft but probably wouldn’t have noticed had we been 30 years younger. All in all would and have recommended to family and friends.

  • "The cottage was very well placed close to amenities including pubs, cafe's and shops."

    The interior could do with a bit of a refresh but was clean and comfortable. I would be inclined to get a plumber in to add a pump to improve hot water flow and put some new bulbs in the kitchen which is very dark when trying to cook.

  • "Great property, will be looking at booking again."

    One thing to note, the wall behind the shed has collapsed and therefore a dog could get out, it will need either rebuilding or fence extending.

  • "Adequate facilities but a small welcome pack would have been nice IE a few tea bags and a few starter logs etc."

    Towels rather old. Wallpaper coming off in main bedroom and the utility room smelt damp. Couldn't get the TV to work in the front bedroom either but apart from that rather cosy

    ...... Just a small suggestion...... Walking a dog at this time of year is a mucky business... Outside tap with hosepipe and spray nozel would be helpful... Also useful for cleaning boots. Helps to keep the cottage clean

    The cottage was warm, cosy and well equipped. The only down side for us was that we found the double bed uncomfortable.

  • "The garden, whilst lovely, was not dog safe for our dog as there was a wall that needed repair and a low gate."

    It didn't cause us any great problems and it is the only criticism I have. The cottage was extremely clean, well furnished and nicely decorated and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

  • "Lovely cottage full of character & fantastic location."

    A small issue with garden that behind shed our dog could have easily climbed over the wall & got out. We found a solution though & it didn't alter a very enjoyable stay. Previous comment about the gate has now been fixed with new secure gate which was appreciated.

  • "A lovely cottage in our favourite village, everything required for a family holiday to The Lakes was provided."

    Very clean, extra duvets if needed and lots of reading material!! Internally the only downsides for us were the small, metal framed, double bed, just not big enough for a good nights sleep and a little noisy. We also didn’t get very comfy in the two two seaters, footstools would help!! Externally the garden was a huge draw, so pretty but on arrival we noticed it needed a new back gate and did worry that the dog may get out so just went out with her and no issues. She loved it as did we. I’d highly recommend this property and would be happy to return.

  • "House was really nice, pretty much perfect for what we needed."

    Very clean, warm and comfortable. Great location. Plenty of information to help us on our holiday. The only point which would be good to address is there were a couple of bits in the garden where I felt it wasn't 100% secure for dogs however potentially the recent weather might be the cause of this. The gate leading to where the cars are parked was broken and not lockable and behind the shed, there was a section of the wall which potentially a dog could jump over. It looks like this was attempted to be fixed but I would suggest needs to be made a bit more secure. Other than that it was a very nice stay. Thank you :)

    This was the 2nd time we had stayed here. Gorgeous cottage with a dog friendly enclosed garden. Stunning walks from the doorstep . Accurate to listing. Warm, bright and airy. Wood burner in the cosy lounge……although we didn’t actually light a fire due to the warmth of the cottage. Kitchen has everything required to cook in house. Would definitely recommend and we will definitely return.

  • "Lovely cottage, well equipped and to a high standard."

    The fully enclosed rear garden was perfect for our dog, no chance of escape. We visited in January and it was nice and warm. Good WiFi throughout, and decent broadband speed (40Mb). Good 4G signal on Virgin / Vodaphone / EE, but no signal on Three / ID. Glenridding is a great base to explore the fells, and just the right size for us. It's big enough to have a few shops and pubs but not overdeveloped or too touristy.

  • "Absolutely gorgeous little cottage which suited us perfectly."

    Had everything we needed to cook our own meals but a super pub up the road for food . Totally enclosed garden for the escape artist dog. Took firewood and coal but despite the time of year, the cottage was warm enough without lighting a fire. Really enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back

  • "Had a great week here but was disappointed with the garden building g as it was really dirty."

    Full of cobwebs and a rug on the floor that I wouldn’t even let my dog walk on. Really not the standard I expected having used your services in the past. Also need to make dog owners aware that the garden is enclosed but not secure enough for an adventurous dog. Could easily be fixed with some proper fencing.

    00 if we had been out all day it would have been a shock so late. As our contract was with heart of the lakes they should make guests aware before arriving. I stay in many cottages and this is the first time this has happened even during the current situation.

  • "Very comfortable, well equipped, clean cottage with a secure garden for our dog."

  • "Had a great time the cottage was perfect for our needs."

    Only improvements could be on two issues; sykes information was that we had to leave the cottage at 10 AM on departure day but the owner informed us, by a note, that we had to vacate by 9AM in order to deep clean. Whilst we understand this need, consistency of approach would be appreciated to reduce the slight tension at the end of the holiday about when we were supposed to vacate the premise. The cottage says that waste for recycling was not collected but had to be taken to recycling centres, a minor inconveniencebut whilst we were there we saw that the local authority did collect recycling and wondered why this wasn't done from the cottage (ie if it was a cost issue). Even so I would have preferred to have recycling collected. As it happened we only made one trip to a recycling centre and on the day of the departure, the cleaner, a very pleasant lady called Beth volunteered to dispose of our recycling.

The property

This well-presented cottage sits within the quaint village of Glenridding on the Southern shores of Ullswater.

Boasting a light and airy feel, Bleaberry Cottage is a fine choice for families seeking a quiet location within the lakes while still being within easy reach of many popular towns and villages.

Step inside the kitchen/diner where a well-equipped selection of appliances will assist in the preparation of home-cooking, while the dining table offers a place for all to come together and toast to a lovely Lake District break.

Carry the conversation into the sitting room, where a multi-fuel burning stove and two leather sofas make it a welcoming and homely place to stay all year round.

The cottage has two bedrooms upstairs, with a double to the rear and a twin to the front, serviced by a bathroom with bath and shower over.

Step outside and get some fresh air in the garden patio, with room to sit or eat in the end of the garden in the sun house.

The area is a hill walkers’ dream with stunning routes up Helvellyn from the door, or take a walk around the shores of Ullswater, arguably the Lake District’s most beautiful lake, with opportunity to hire a boat out on the water.

In Glenridding there is a mini supermarket which is handy for grabbing any essentials, while a small choice of pubs and restaurants will satisfy if you fancy a night off cooking.

The beautiful village of Grasmere, which was once home to William Wordsworth, is a fabulous choice for a day out, as are the popular towns of Ambleside, Bowness and Windermere, which are full of attractions for all the family.

With all the facilities you’ll need for a relaxing break, consider Bleaberry Cottage for your next Lake District escape.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District, the Westmoorland Dales and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films.
