The property

A converted Lakeland piggery set in a blissfully secluded setting in the village of Glenridding with breathtaking Ullswater and Glenridding Beck on your doorstep.

The cottage was once a piggery and the location is truly romantic with wonderful views. Explore the southern end of the Lake District.

With a five minute walk from the cottage door you will find Glenridding, a popular little village and an excellent base to explore plentiful challenging peaks, but especially Helvellyn and Striding Edge.

The village of Patterdale is a ten minute walk in the opposite direction, where the Coast to Coast walk passes through, and offers pubs and a village shop.

The Piggery opens into a large Utility/Boot Room where theres ample of places to dry boots and clothing.

Here too is the utility room.

This is also a great space for dogs to chill.

From here a door opens into the lounge with a dining area.

A slate floor and a feature fireplace with woodburning stove and comfortable sofas let you watch TV or relax in and watch your favourite film.

The kitchen is well equipped and just the place to cook up a hearty breakfast before a day on the fells or a romantic dinner for two.
