About the neighbourhood
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'.
