Glenridding also provides a superb base for walking and other outdoor activities: Classic high level walks, including Striding Edge and Swirral Edge on Helvellyn. Beautiful and varied low level walks by the lake or in the surrounding valleys cater for all levels of ability.

The flat has two bedrooms: Bedroom one: one double bed Bedroom two: A family room with a 4'.6' double bed and a full sized bunk bed NB.

In exceptional circumstances, such as when coming from abroad or when travelling light by public transport, can we provide bed linen and towels. There is a £40 charge for this. The double bed mattresses are 10' thick, so sheets or deep fitted bottom sheets are recommended. Secure storage for bicycles and canoes can be arranged if required. The flat now has a small washer/dryer situated in the kitchen. Please bring your own detergents and fabric conditioner if you are intending to use it. There is a 'Lakeland', heated drying rack and cover for drying off clothes, towels etc. More

Interaction with guests
Regretfully I do not live nearby, so cannot meet and greet you. However, access is by using a key safe located next to the front door. Further details on this are provided once full payment is made. Our caretaker, Jayne, does lives in the village and can be contacted in the case of an emergency or other issue with the flat. I can also be contacted by phone and will do my best to sort any issues out.

About the neighbourhood
Glenridding has glorious views towards Place Fell. The jetties line up perfectly with Silver Point and is one of the most photographed views in the Lake District. Glenridding boasts two major hotels, 'The Glenridding' and 'The Inn on the Lake', as well as a pub and several cafes. Food, drink, souvenirs and walking equipment are available in the local shops and there is an excellent Tourist Information Centre based in the village. The flat is situated in the grounds of 'The Inn on the Lake' Opposite to the Flat is The Ramblers Bar which sells fine food, wines and beer and which has a small games room and Sky TV. The hotel management may close this to the public from time to time to accommodate the many weddings they host.
Getting around
Glenridding has bus service, all year round to Penrith. In the summer, there are buses going over the Kirkstone Pass to Ambleside,Windemere and Bowness. Glenridding is also the main stop for the Ullswater Steamers which now ply the length of the lake all year round.
