Getting Here

The picturesque villages of Glenridding and Patterdale lie at the southern end of Ullswater. Glenridding is 15 miles (24 km) from the towns of Keswick and Penrith and 8 to 10 miles (12 to 16 km) from Ambleside and Windermere.

From the North: There is easy access to the cottage from the M6 motorway (junction 40 at Penrith) via the A66 and A592. Follow the signs for Ullswater and Patterdale - a journey of 30 to 40 minutes which passes along the western shore of Ullswater.

From the South: take the A591 from the M6 (junction 36) and follow the signs for Windermere and Ambleside. After Windermere, take the A592 to Kirkstone and Patterdale at the small roundabout (signposted Ullswater). This takes you over the dramatic Kirkstone Pass.

Our cottage and apartments are all located in or around Glenridding and Patterdale. A car will mean you can make the most of exploring the area but all accommodation is within walking distance of the local amenities.  There is a year round bus service to Penrith and seasonal bus services to Keswick and Bowness/Windermere..


Please note that the marker on the map below is for the centre of Glenridding and not for our specific cottages - refer to each holiday cottage or apartment for further details on their exact location.
