Superb location in the Lake District, not far from Kirkstone Pass (a great climb) and Ambleside

As the name suggests it’s situated on the edge of Ullswater and at the foot of Helvellyn in the heart of the Lake District National Park. Glenridding is a charming little village and a walkers paradise, taking the spectacular climb to the summit.

You’ll find a varied menu offering all the usual fair, from toast to wraps and a large selection of homemade cakes on display – I can highly recommend the mint aero biscuit cake.
