Half way between Patterdale and Glenridding about 1\2 Mile each way, lots of nearby walks and the views are beautiful. The cottage has clean comfortable beds (a double, twin and single), a well equipped kitchen, seperate dining area and a cosy living room both with views of the lake. The enclosed garden, with side access is perfect for wet dogs...

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay. 😊

The Old Smithy is a wonderful well equipped, spacious ground floor cottage. There are thoughtful touches such as 'doggy towels and blankets' that reflect the fact that the owner is local and understands the needs of fell walkers and their companions. Lovely to have hot water without having to wait for it to heat up and a good Wifi connection.

Management response:

So glad you like the cottage. See you at new year! Sarah 😊

How to get there
We are at Grisedale Bridge, halfway between Glenridding and Patterdale. Heading towards Patterdale from Glenridding, turn left immediately after the Patterdale village sign. Follow the lane all the way to the end. The Old Smithy is on your left just before the stone steps. Parking is opposite the cottage to your right.
