Wordsworth’s Lake District

The second largest lake in England, Lake Ullswater is a lush countryside idyll nestled quietly in the Northeast of Cumbria’s lovely Lake District. Regarded by many as the most beautiful lake in the whole National Park, Ullswater inspired William Wordsworth’s famous poem ‘I wandered lonely as a cloud’, which he penned after spending time on its peaceful shores. With the manifestation of our new gorgeous lakeside hotel, Another Place, The Lake, we are sure that he would have drafted a few more poems of enviable wordmanship, possibly while snuggled by the firepit... floating in the panoramic pool... being pampered in the spa...

Less traversed by boot and wandering eye, Ullswater is the perfect Lake District stay for those seeking some chilled lakeside lazing, Beatrix Potter countryside perfection and a little waterborne adventure, too.

Unspoilt, un-touristy and relatively untapped, the picture-perfect Lake District scenery of Lake Ullswater is Cumbria’s best kept secret. Perfect for walking the fells, getting active in the crystal-clear water – think paddleboarding, swimming, fishing – as well as chillaxing on dry land, you can even hop aboard one of the famous, award-winning Ullswater Steamers for a historic (and environmentally accredited) boat trip around the lake, just as has it has been done for the past 150-years.

For a fun chilled-lux retreat that is perfect for the whole clan, there is simply no better place to base yourself than at the wholesome and heritage good-life den of Another Place, The Lake – opening summer 2017. Filled with days on the lake, hiking the hills, chillaxing in the spa and eating fresh, seasonal, veg-patch food to your hearts content in the Living Space, to the fine dining restaurant, to the fire pit outside… this is English countryside living done right. Lake Ullswater, we’re glad we found you. 

Sitting snug in the Eden Valley, Lake Ullswater is host to some of the finest walking fells in the Lakelands, including the famous Helvellyn, and while you’re here, you may as well check out some neighbouring natural wonders from the United Kingdom’s countryside too. From busier big sister Lake Windermere further south, to the grandeur of the Yorkshire Dales a bit east, you can then drive on up to the awe-inspiring Highlands of Scotland further north.
