    • “stayed here in may 2017, really comfortable, everything you could need whilst you are away. kitchen is really well stocked with all the equipment you could need. very comfortable beds and very handy parking at rear highly recommended”

    JOwens6060, Barnt Green, United Kingdom, May 2017

    • “Perfect location for us as we were working on our boat at the sailing centre. We had a second car so left it there as with only one parking space at the cottage it could have been expensive to park. It would have been helpful to have details of parking charges on website. The cottage was very well equipped and beds were fabulous!”

    Mrs Frumin, York, April 2018

    • “The cottage is perfectly situated for walks from the front door and is in a very short walking distance to the shops and bars in Glenridding. It's really well equipped, cosy and comfortable, lovely to have an open fire after walking in the snow and to find the heating on when we arrived. The beds are also very comfortable. It was helpful to have a few basics there, in case people hadn't brought them, such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tabs, loo rolls etc. We noticed others had commented on it not being obvious that towels are not included, but I think all sites now have that information on them. One suggestion would be, that as the shower is over the bath, a non-slip mat for the bath would be good. We brought our own but most people wouldn't think to.”

    Mrs Woolley, Hungerford, March 2018

    • “Very comfortable cottage, close to shops, pubs and short walk to Ullswater.”

    Miss Patteson, Norwich, March 2018

    • “Great location, good size cottage. Open fire. Only thing missing was towels.”

    Dr Gurden-williams, Durham, February 2018

The Property

Glenridding definitely is a stunning place to stay whilst visiting the Lake District. Millcroft is a traditional holiday cottage with a delightful cottage style garden surrounded by breathtaking scenery.
The unspoilt and tranquil village of Glenridding on the southern tip of Ullswater is set in beautiful countryside and framed by delightful Lakeland hills. The village is relatively less frequented by high influxes of tourists which often crowd the central areas of the Lake District yet has a good range of restaurants, shops, pub's and cafe's. The shores of Ullswater are a short stroll away. Ullswater steamers offer a relaxing steam cruise around the lake or for the more energetic you can disembark at Pooley Bridge, Aira Force and Howtown and walk back to the village along the shores or on higher ground via Place Fell. Stunning views of Ullswater can be admired from the peak of Helvellyn and Striding Edge. Boats can be hired from in the village, a great way to cruise the lake at your own pace.
Millcroft is a traditionally built Lakeland cottage full of charm and character which includes original beamed ceilings and open fire both helping create a relaxing ambience. A warm welcoming and homely holiday cottage awaits you. Walkers will love the location, families will love the relaxation and couples will love the peace and tranquillity.
