Stylish and charming apartment in peaceful rural location near beautiful Ullswater, perfect for an escape into the heart of the Lake District.

Matterdale is a beautiful, peaceful retreat within touching distance of Ullswater. Catch a steamer that calls at four landing stages around the lake, or use the service one way and return along the popular walking routes admiring the lovely views. For hillwalkers, try the hike up Helvellyn, one of the highest mountains in the Lake District, or explore the area around Aira Force where a variety of paths lead through mixed woodland to various viewpoints.

Dine at the table, before settling in the armchairs, glass of wine in hand and put at your feet in front of the crackling flames. Watch a movie or make use of the selection of board games and books. The double bedroom has a small dressing table and built-in wardrobe/storage space.The bathroom is accessible through the bedroom and offers a bath with a handheld shower attachment and a WC.

Cosy accomodation, well equipped kitchen, although it took some time to figure out how to work tthe oven. Towels are provided even though it advised that they weren't. The property could do with soe updating but good for the price. A good selection of books, DVD's and games too

Location great, directions good. For the price of two nights I would expect a decent property, felt really old fashioned and depressing. Although the bed linen was washed it was marked and didnt inspire one to sleep in it.

Sweet little cottage in a prime location. It was a bit tricky to find and we had to drive through a very narrow gate which was a bit annoying but we managed. The cottage was not the cleanest when we arrived and we had to spend some time cleaning up dead insects from the carpet. We also did not have wifi. I would still recommend this cottage, mainlyRead more due to its location, as long as it gets a through clean beforehand! Hide

Lovely and cosy with the extra bonus of a wood burner. Beautiful location and surrounding areas are well worth a visit. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay, including a well equipped kitchen area.

Cottage in need of an update. Boiler broke on 5 day and as we were the property with the boiler we had the inconvenience of repair men coming in as well as to constantly pressing the reset button so the other 2 properties could have hot water or heating. I was very disappointed as compared with other properties we have rent we didnt even get any fiRead morerewood for our arrival. This is poor, also for the time without boiler working it would of been nice to have had the availability of some logs . Hide

Superb location and value for money. great host. Didnt mind me arriving over 5 hours too early. Left me a lovely bottle of Chianti. Checked i had all I needed. Clean, Huge amounts of HOT water, and HOT heating. What more can you ask for ? The moaners on some reviews need to a) get a life, b) not go to the Lake District, c) book a 5* hotel if its SORead more important to them. Ill definitely be back. Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
