The Dairy

The Dairy
Back Garden of the Dairy

The Dairy is set within the private Patterdale Hall estate on the shores of Lake Ullswater. Managed by the team at Patterdale Hall, The Dairy is available to be rented via both Holiday Lettings and AirBNB.

The Dairy is designed for just a couple, sharing a double bed in the extremely quirky, mezzanine style bedroom which is accessed via a a steep wooden ladder. Because of this, the property is not everyone’s choice and due consideration should be given before booking. Reviews for the property are available on Trip Advisor.

Explore the Lake on the Ullswater Steamer

With the villages of Glenridding and Patterdale each within a 10 minute stroll, The Dairy at Patterdale Hall is a perfect base from which to explore the local area. Paths lead off the estate straight onto the fell, with the summit of Helvellyn less than a two hour walk for the fit.

For the more sedate holiday maker, why not peruse the local shops, take a ride on the Ullswater Steamer or sample one of the many hostelries that are all within easy reach.

The Dairy is a great place to stay. It has everything you need to be comfortable, including a large supply of kindling and logs for the fire. Its location is perfect for walking out to explore the fells on both sides of Ullswater. We found that the hosts were very responsive and helpful with all our requests.

Excellent location as a base for many walks. Mini market within 10 minute walk.The Dairy was very well equipped for self-catering and had helpful extras such as tea, coffee, salt and pepper and more than enough loo roll for the entire stay!

Lovely place with a cosy feel. Ideal base for walking in the lakes. Nice little touches like tea and biscuits supplied and the fire ready to go when you arrive.

Amazing stay for Easter weekend. we didn’t want to leave and the place is incredibly homely.The bedroom up the ladder is lovely and snug and has a very comfy bed. The garden was also great for our little dog who loved exploring round the trees and daffodils. Perfect base to explore Ullswater.
