Local Area

High­ly regard­ed as the most beau­ti­ful of all the Eng­lish Lakes. Ull­swa­ter is the sec­ond largest lake in The Lake Dis­trict stretch­ing for near­ly 8 miles from Poo­ley Bridge at the north end to Glen­rid­ding at the south end and is over 60 metres deep. Some say its name derives from an old Nordic chief and is said to be so beau­ti­ful it inspired William Wordsworth him­self to write three poems on Ull­swa­ter, most famous­ly Daf­fodils, inspired from Glen­coyne Wood, and has just been fea­tured in Arthur Ran­some’s whole­some pre­war adven­ture clas­sic Swal­lows and Ama­zons”. Wordsworth fur­ther acclaimed Ull­swa­ter in one of the most cel­e­brat­ed pas­sages from his great auto­bi­o­graph­i­cal poem The Prelude’.
