Patterdale Hall Estate is a 300-acre private estate located in the breathtaking Ullswater valley, wrapped around the southern tip of Ullwater, England’s most beautiful lake. Ideally located to explore the whole of the Lake District, we are within a short distance of Penrith, Keswick, Windermere, Ambleside, Bowness and Kendal. We have six Cedar Chalets, three Pine Lodges and two Stone-built Bothies all with magnificent views, and a 5-pitch Caravan Club Certified Location which you can read about further down this page.
The estate boasts 100 acres of ancient woodland to explore along with spectacular crags, a fantastic Victorian Waterfall Wood walk, a lovely little tarn, a private foreshore for boating or fishing, and a picnic area with fantastic views of the lake and fells. A multitude of the finest Lakeland walks lie on our doorstep (Helvellyn, St. Sunday Crag, Dollywagon Pike and Place Fell to name but a few), and as our PHOTO GALLERY below shows, the area offers the most dramatic Lake District scenery imaginable. The villages of Glenridding and Patterdale are only a ten minute walk away and in each you will find local shops, pubs and restaurants providing plenty of options to eat and shop.
Our self-catering accommodation is ideally suited to those who enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. You can stay in our Pine Lodges or Cedar Chalets with spacious lawns in front of your verandas and wonderful views over Place Fell and Keldas; or enjoy our stonebuilt Gardeners’ Bothies with their tranquil private walled garden and fell views. We have put new TVs and blu ray players in all properties, new kitchens in most properties, new bathrooms in the lodges, and we now include everything except towels in the price of the property.
These idyllic surroundings are the perfect place to enjoy water activities, walk the fells, tour the Lakes, or just indulge yourself and relax away from the stresses of modern life. Ideal for individuals, couples, families and large groups alike, 9 out of 10 visitors come back for repeat stays, which speaks volumes about what we offer! The Estate is an amazing place to stay whatever the time of year, and our prices are very affordable whatever your budget.

At Patterdale Hall Estate we have a selection of accommodation to suit everybody, from traditional stone built cottages to Scananavian style wooden properties.
Our three Pine Lodges (sleep 6, 3 bedrooms) and our six Cedar Chalets (Chalet 1 & 2 sleep five in two bedrooms; Chalets 3, 4, 5, & 6 sleep four in two bedrooms), are positioned in a 'horseshoe' on a quiet & secure site with acres of lawns surrounded by trees. Children LOVE the site as they can explore and play together as the adults keep an eye on them from their verandas! The views are simply stunning from every property.
The two Stone-built Bothies sleep one to three persons and are near to the wooden properties but have their own fantastic walled garden offering a lot of outdoor space. They are extremely popular with couples who are looking for traditional but good value accommodation right in the heart of the Lake District, and despite being on the bijou side, they contain everything you need for an enjoyable self-catering holiday. The Bothies are excellent value for money all year round and are perfect for fell walkers and outdoor enthusiasts who need a place to relax after a great day on the fells or water.
The Estate has a lovely little five pitch CARAVAN CLUB MEMBERS ONLY 'Certified Location', which we have just spent a great deal of time improving. All CC members with caravans or motor homes can enjoy this site which is wonderfully located in woodland next to Grisedale Beck just upstream of Grisedale Bridge. Each pitch is hard standing and has electric hook-up. There is a cold water tap on-site and a launderette nearby which you are welcome to use. Please note that we have NO TOILETS OR SHOWERS. You may be able to get a digital TV signal, but this depends on which pitch you are on and how adaptable your aerial is! We cannot guarantee any kind of TV reception, so you're on your own there. We are, however, currently developing a TV system and hope to get it up and running by the summer. The cost is currently £15 per night inclusive of electric. Well behaved dogs are welcome on leads. All CL guests are welcome to expore the whole 300-acre Estate and use our private foreshore for fishing or boating.
Check in and out time is midday, and to book you just need to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring us on 017684 82308 during office hours. We require 14 days notice of cancellation as bookings cancelled later than that will have to pay in full for any nights we cannot rebook elsewhere.
Don't have your own caravan? No problem, you can hire one and try a holiday with a difference! Hit the open road without leaving the comforts of home behind. Bliss Motor Home Hire is based centrally in Sheffield, close to the M1 and major road networks, making it convenient for many areas – and not too far from us!
