Dunkeld Cottage is a chocolate box style cottage in a gorgeous village location and ideal for touring the Lake District! The cottage features stunning beams and original period features throughout, with everything thought of to make your stay a comfortable, relaxing one! The cottage dates back to 1820 and yet has been extremely well maintained and looked after - with all the mod cons! The kitchen/breakfast room is particularly lovely and has pretty views over the garden and is very spacious. All of the appliances you could need are here - including integral dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and of course a hob and double oven.

The cottage features stunning beams and original period features throughout, with everything thought of to make your stay a comfortable, relaxing one! The cottage dates back to 1820 and yet has been extremely well maintained and looked after - with all the mod cons! The kitchen/breakfast room is particularly lovely and has pretty views over the garden and is very spacious. All of the appliances you could need are here - including integral dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and of course a hob and double oven. There is a spacious and cosy lounge/dining room which features a truly amazing fireplace, beamed ceilings throughout, comfy sofas, TV with numerous digital channels, WiFi, and a desk with leaflets on the local area and further seating. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, again, boasting glorious beams throughout and are very charming. The master bedroom features a superking bed - or it can be turned into two single beds - ideal for families. The second bedroom has a double bed and both bedrooms have plenty of storage for your clothes and personal items. There is also a bathroom with a bath - ideal for a bubbly soaking after a long Lake District walk - plus a shower over. The garden is fully enclosed and private and there is plenty of room for you to bring your bikes - and probably anything else like a canoe etc.. - just ask us! We love the fact that Ullswater is around a 15 minute scenic drive from the cottage and our favourite day out is a day on the Ullswater Steamers, combined with a walk along the Ullswater Way! However, equally, the Pennines are the backdrop of the cottage, and if you want to head away from the crowds that can sometimes gather in the summer, then a delightful stroll around Pennine country may be just what you need! Likewise, Keswick is only a relatively short, scenic drive away - we recommend a boat trip, a hike up the famous Cat Bells, followed by a pub lunch or dinner in the fantastic town centre. There's so much to do - you'll need to keep coming back to do more! :)More

Interaction with guests
We have stayed in many holiday cottages and we personally prefer to be left alone during our stay - so that we feel the property is our very own for the week! So we have adopted the same approach with Dunkeld Cottage - however, we are very quick to respond should you have a problem and are there for you at any point during your stay. Detailed notes on the workings of the house etc.. are all provided and also lots of leaflets and walking guides to help you plan your stay. We also write blogs on our website and information literature - giving you some ideas of the sorts of things you can do when you stay at Dunkeld Cottage. Examples include walking the Ullswater Way, travelling on the Settle-Carlisle route and visiting cute villages!

We had a fabulous time at this lovely cottage. The kitchen was well equipt, everything we needed. Ideally situated only 15mins to Pooley Bridge and a very nice bistro in the village. We loved every minute of our week stay and will book again.

About the neighbourhood
There is simply so much to do in the area, you won't have time to do it all! We are situated a very short drive from Ullswater - around 15-20 minutes, and we highly recommend a day out walking the Ullswater Way, combining it with a boat trip and of course a well-earned bite to eat out. Keswick and Grasmere are also favourite days out. There is also lots to do immediately from the cottage - there is a Michellin-listed bistro right at the end of the road which is hugely popular with our guests. A stroll along the River Eden brings you out at Temple Sowerby - ideal for stopping at a traditional pub. Or why not bring your bikes? The cottage has plenty of storage for them and it is absolutely ideal cycling country right from the door!
Getting around
We do recommend you bring your car with you to the cottage as it will really help you enjoy all the Lakes have to offer. However, there is plenty to do right from the door, from lovely walks, local restaurants and historic houses - why not bring your bikes with you for a true adventure? The Pennine countryside is particularly well-suited for cycling - as well as walking, so you needn't venture further afield if you don't want to!
