Uldale is a typical rural community set within the Lake District National Park. It is approached by quiet country lanes and surrounded by working farmland and open countryside.  There are views from the garden over the fields owned by the farm next door and often the cows can be seen coming in for milking. From time to time you’ll hear John on his tractor around the farm.

It occupies an elevated position on the side of Green How overlooking the Ellen Valley. Close by you will find Lake District classics such as Skiddaw, Bassenthwaite Lake and the Uldale Fells.

For those who enjoy the great outdoors, there are Wainwrights to climb, miles of footpaths to discover, trails for mountain biking, passes to challenge the road cyclist, lakes to explore, wildlife to experience and views to cherish.

For those looking for some retail therapy or great food and drink then the towns of Keswick and Cockermouth are both approximately 20mins drive away and the Border City of Carlisle is within easy reach. Closer by, the village is home to The Snooty Fox Pub and Mae’s Tearoom and Gallery, both within walking distance.

Neighbouring villages such as Caldbeck, Hesket Newmarket and Bassenthwaite are good to explore too.
