    “Millcroft is a great base in which to explore the lakes.”

    It is a lovely little cottage with most amenities that you need. There was no tumble dryer despite being one listed, however apart from that all was as expected. As others have mentioned a net curtain would be helpful, to stop the numerous passers by having a nosy! All in all it is a cosy cottage and we enjoyed our stay. The beds are comfy, however the main double is quite a soft mattress so beware if you have a bad back like me!

This property is part of the Heart Of The Lakes collection.

The property

This traditional, stone-built cottage lies in the delightful village of Glenridding, at the southern shores of Ullswater.

With various pubs, cafés and places to eat within a short stroll, Millcroft Cottage offers a charming base for a small family looking to stay within the beautiful scenery of the Lake District National Park.

Be welcomed into the well-equipped kitchen/diner, housing all the essentials for a self-catered break, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and even laundry facilities for additional convenience.

The sitting room is comprised of two plush sofas and an alluring woodburning stove, making it a welcoming and homely atmosphere to unwind in the evenings.

Climb the stairs to access the bedrooms, offering the choice of a king-size double and twin, both decorated with a calming light colour schemes and a good amount of storage to house all your personal items.

Venture over to the bathroom where you can soak in the warm water that fills the tub, providing relief to your muscles after a long day of fell walking, or freshen up with a brisk shower in the morning.

To the rear of this Lakeland cottage is a pretty garden patio, where you can dine alfresco style whilst taking in the rural setting.

Get to know your surroundings by following the nearby route to Helvellyn, taking you on a rugged trail up one of the Lake District’s most iconic peaks, or you could take the steamer along Ullswater to Howtown and enjoy the scenic walk back along the eastern side of the lake.

Take in some history of the local area at Dalemain, a beautiful Georgian mansion and gardens with a rich history dating back to Saxon times, or visit Dove Cottage where William Wordsworth once lived, offering chance to see where the famous writer produced most of his greatest and best-loved poems.

About the location

PENRITH

Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District 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. Brougham Castle (The Windsor of the North), Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
