Great to hear Bruce enjoyed the tiled floor and you all had such a good stay. We would love to have you back in winter when Bruce could play in the snow and then snooze in front of the log burner.

Very glad Poppy liked the dog biscuits. It was great to see her playing happily in the field, and to hear how welcome she had been in the local pubs. We hope we will see you all again soon.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is in the parish of Matterdale just north of beautiful Ullswater where the Aira Force waterfall cascades and Wordsworth was inspired to write his Daffodils poem. Quiet and uncrowded even in high season, yet close to many of Lakelands favourite sites. From the cottage you can see Blencathra , great Mell fell and the Dodds, all of which offer wonderful walks. Other famous peaks like Helvellyn are just 15 minutes drive. Cyclists have a great choice of routes from the gentle hills of the Eden valley to some of Britain's best mountain roads. For shopping we have a great farm shop about a mile away, or Keswick and the large market town of Penrith are both 15 minutes drive.
Getting around
Most guests come by car. A regular bus from Penrith train station stops a mile away in Troutbeck. Cycling from Penrith is easy as it's part of the C2C cycle route.
