Location Delightfully positioned in the small village of Glenridding, close to Ullswater and at the very foot of Helvellyn, this lovely stone built cottage is ideally placed for immediate access to the Lakeland fells. To reach the property from Ambleside take the Kirkstone road from the mini roundabout at the northern end of town and continue up the hill to the T junction opposite the Kirkstone Pass Inn. Turn left, proceeding down the Kirkstone Pass passing both Brotherswater and Patterdale and on reaching Glenridding itself, bear left adjacent to the public car park into Greenside Road signposted for The Glenridding Hotel and the Travellers Rest. Take the next left passing Fairlight Café and Guesthouse and Edies Cottage can be found on the left hand side with parking for the property situated just beyond, at the far end of the terrace.  

Description Thought to have been constructed in the mid nineteenth century as a cottage providing accommodation for workers employed up at Greenside Mine further up the valley, Edie's Cottage has remained in the ownership of the same family since the mine closed and sold its assets in the early 1960's.

The mine itself produced lead rich in silver and is understood to have been operated as far back as the 17th century. It was only in the mid 1800 that production increased and Glenridding itself expanded to accommodate the growing workforce. Mining has long since ceased but these cottages are a welcome legacy, providing comfortable and homely accommodation in what is now one of the most beautiful valleys in the Lake District National Park.

Edie's Cottage would now possibly benefit from a little updating but is superbly placed. The shore of ever beautiful Ullswater is just a short hop and a skip away and a variety of traditional Lakeland inns, hotels, shops, cafes and restaurants provide all the evening entertainment that one could possibly desire after a day spent on the magnificent surrounding fells or sailing on the lake.

Idyllic as a holiday let, lock up and leave weekend retreat or indeed a permanent residence viewing of this well proportioned cottage is highly recommended.
