This Ullswater self-catering cottage has been recently been refurbished throughout to restore the original wooden floor and exposed wooden beams. This self-catering cottage is ideal for walkers wishing to explore Ullswater and the Lake District or for couples looking for a romantic getaway sipping a glass of red in front of the roaring fire. Dogs are also welcome to stay at only £5 per pet per stay.

The self-catering cottage is perfect for walkers because you have many popular walks leading off from the doorstep including Place Fell, the Helvellyn Range with Helvellyn and Birkhouse Moor.
