Description Quietly tucked away on the edge of Glenridding and Patterdale in the tranquil Ullswater Valley, Grisedale Lodge offers bright and spacious accommodation throughout, which is perfect whether you are seeking a well-balanced holiday let in delightful surroundings, a permanent family home with space for all or an easily managed Bed and Breakfast establishment.

Enjoying superb views of the surrounding fells and glimpses of the lake, Grisedale Lodge could hardly be better placed to enjoy all that the English Lake District has to offer. A short stroll takes you down to the lake shore or to the village centre where there is a variety of highly regarded Lakeland inns and cafes, and a selection of shops. For the more energetic the high fells, including the renowned Helvellyn range, are similarly accessible on foot, quite literally from the doorstep.

For those who would wish to continue the existing Bed & Breakfast business here the property is conveniently placed on the popular Coast to Coast long distance footpath and this provides a regular and reliable client base, as does overspill from nearby hotels who specialise in wedding events. As a permanent home it is perhaps difficult to picture a more suitable location for raising a family, particularly given the high regard in which the village school is held.

All in all the accommodation is superbly adaptable whatever your requirements. The accommodation is primarily over two storeys above a separate self-contained apartment on the ground floor which may be available by separate negotiation. 

Location From the centre of Ambleside take the right hand turning at the mini roundabout at the Northern end of the town heading up towards The Kirkstone Pass, on what is known locally as The Struggle. At the junction at the top of this road, on The Kirkstone Pass itself, turn left at the Kirkstone Pass Inn and follow the road down past Brotherswater and Patterdale and on towards Glenridding. Just before reaching the village you will see the Mountain Rescue base on the right hand side and just after that, before the signpost for Glenridding itself, turn right over Grisedale Bridge and follow this lane into a courtyard. Grisedale Lodge is then seen on the right hand side with car parking provision in the carport on the left.
