If you’re looking for peace, tranquillity and a place to get away from it all before Christmas then Ullswater is the destination to choose.
This stunning location in the Lake District is beautiful at any time of the year, during any season with autumn into winter being no exception. This year particularly the autumnal colours are still vibrant with the lake surrounded by a sea of yellows, oranges and reds.
As so much of the Lake District now, nearly all attractions and services continue through the winter months including Ullswater Steamers and the bus services. One excellent bus service runs 7 days a week even through winter from Penrith to Patterdale. When staying in accommodation around the lake, use it to visit Penrith and Rheged, lovely villages like Tirril or for transportation between Glenridding at the southern end of Ullswater up to Pooley Bridge in the north.
And another great thing about being out of the school holiday times and in the off season is exceptional value for money. Take Laburnum Cottage for example located at Glenridding. This is ultra luxury self catering with fabulous views of the lake, a luxurious interior throughout, separate annexe and a gym, all this with autumn/winter week rates starting from £719 (a saving of £239 on the full rate). The cottage just a 2 minute walk to all the amenities of Glenridding including a shop, post office, restaurants and pubs and just a mile from the lake and the steamer pier. The 508 Penrith to Pooley Bridge bus service mean guests can even travel car free with Penrith being on the West Coast Mainline.
What else is there to do around Ullswater in the Winter? Lot’s, the fells are still open, visit Aira Force Waterfall or arrange a multi activity day with one of the local outdoor activity providers.
