Greenah View in the North Lakes

Back Garden Panorama

The back garden looks out over the surrounding hills, from neighbouring Binsey (on the right) to mighty Skiddaw (on the left).

Greenah View is a spacious period three-bedroom cottage in the quiet farming village of Uldale - where rush hour is the daily passage of cows to and from the nearby milking shed. Mae's tearoom is at one end of the village while the well-known Snooty Fox dining pub is at the other.  A few yards further on, the children's play area includes a free tennis court. Uldale makes an ideal base for exploring the beautiful but uncrowded northern lakes - Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater, Buttermere - around Keswick.

Greenah View sleeps up to five or six, is available all year round, and typically rents from as low as £500 per week out of season up to a possible maximum of over £800 for the New Year week. The turn-around day is Friday. To know more, click the picture-links above, or go straight to our summary & booking page. (You can also read GUEST REVIEWS, or email an enquiry.)

Though Greenah View began life in the seventeenth century, it has recently been fully modernised throughout, so it has a large well-equipped kitchen and two modern bath/shower rooms. Its gas central heating makes the living room's open fire an optional extra. The living spaces are stylishly fitted out with carefully chosen art works and pieces of genuine antique furniture.

Uldale sits in a corner of the Lake District that the locals call "Back o'Skiddaw". This region of the national park is made up of pretty villages nestling in a pastoral landscape against the dramatic backdrop of the northern fells. Lying just east of Bassenthwaite, ten miles north of Derwentwater, Uldale manages to be close to some of the most beautiful parts of the lakes and yet be peaceful: unlike more southern parts of the Lake Distict, it is never crowded, even in the height of summer.
