Broad How is ideally situated in Patterdale at Southern end of Ullswater. The house
sits at the foot of Place Fell with unobstructed views up and down the valley and
across towards the village and Helvellyn. It is idyllic and peaceful without being
remote. The market town of Penrith and the M6 (J 40) are just 15 miles away. But
once you are here, everything that you need is close at hand. Patterdale, with its
excellent Village Store & Post Office, pub and hotel, is just 400m from the door.
Glenridding (a mile away), is close, but not too close! It is well set up for visitors
with a Tourist Information Centre, shops, pubs, bars, restaurants and garage/petrol
station. Boat and canoe hire, sailing, rowing and fishing are also all available
here, as well as the famous Ullswater steamers. Famous fellwalker and guide-writer,
Alfred Wainwright also reckoned that this is a special place, even comparing the
dale to paradise! In fact, there are 50 'Wainwrights' within 5 miles of the front
door. Broad How even has a Wordsworth connection.
Broad How is a superbly equipped, spacious, seven-bedroom house, offering comfortable
self-catering accommodation for 14+ in the most stunning location in Patterdale at
the head of Ullswater - the loveliest of all the English lakes
