Ullswater is fast making a name for itself in the world of luxury self catering not just within the Lake District National Park but the whole of the UK.
Albeit a popular location in the Lake District, it is a far more tranquil than Lake Windermere and its size makes it feel quieter than Coniston Water and Derwentwater, all this and so easily accessed from the M6. Restaurants and place to stay just seem to be that little bit more concealed and hidden away than so many other areas of the National Park. The dense trees and lanes along with historic properties make for a luxury and exclusive combination. And still, the lake is accessible for individual use but also visitors can take a trip up and down the lake on an extremely romantic and traditional steam yacht gondola. Ullswater Steamers have operated cruises on arguably, England’s most beautiful lake for over 150 years.
With an already healthy portfolio of luxury cottages in the Ullswater area, The Lakeland Cottage Company have further added to their offerings. Laburnum Cottage is something else, a brand new holiday let and with an anticipated Visit England 5 Star Gold rating, the property sleeps 6 has a gym, lake views and what can only be described as a show stopping interior. The owners have managed to give the property a contemporary, and most definitely high end look without compromising on the aesthetics of the building or deflecting from the integrity of the location.
The cottage is located to the south of Ullswater at Glenridding where there are places to eat and drink, a watersports centre and also easy access to the South Lakes over the drive and cycle worthy Kirkstone Pass.
