Lake District Self Catering Accommodation at Hartsop Hall

2 Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages between Ambleside & Patterdale, Ullswater in the Lake District.
Sleeps 2 - 6.

The two holiday cottages, Caudale Beck Holiday Cottage and Dovedale Cottage, are both idyllically situated on this Patterdale farm near Ullswater in the Lake District, offering a truly “off the beaten track” living experience. They are both approached by farm tracks (recently concreted in parts); there is no passing traffic.

If walking is your pleasure, there are so many options of Lake District walks from the door, you may never bother to use your car during your stay. However, despite the seclusion of the location, it is only six miles to Ambleside (outdoor clothing shops, restaurants, cinema), thus very central for exploring more of the Lake District by car if you choose.
