The lake provides plenty of activities with lake cruises as well as boat hire and a sailing centre. There is no need to drive to access the excellent walking.
Surrounding our property are low level rambles to high fells including Helvellyn, St. Sunday Crag and the High Street Ridge. Both Patterdale and Glenridding village are close by and have well stocked local shops and pubs for bar meals etc. It is a great place from which to explore the Lake District and we have totally refurbishment of our apartment adding some extra luxuries.
A set of black metal steps lead up to the front door which takes you into our entrance vestibule, a great place for drying boots and clothes.

There is a spacious double bedroom with a large window overlooking Grisedale Beck from which you can watch the wildlife.

This pleasant bedroom again has an oak floor and is well furnished with a traditional brass bed, a wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables. There is an electric heater for those cooler nights. Bed linen is provided and the bed will be made ready for your arrival.
The bathroom has a bit of luxury in natural travertine stone with a large double ended bath and a place for a wine glass. There is a powerful shower over the bath. The heated towel rail to keep you and your towels warm and underfloor heating for warm feet. There is of course a WC and a wash hand basin. Over the hand basin is a mirrored cabinet with shaver point.
There is a dedicated off road parking area for a car opposite the apartment. We have a garden with a large patio space just behind the parking. It catches the sun all day and is a great place to sit out and admire the mountain views. There is a charcoal BBQ and table and chairs to enjoy alfresco dining.
We have recently been renovating Deepdale further. We have created a lovely comfortable area where you can sit and read in peace and quiet or plan your next day from the maps, books on the local area, walking guides and magazines. Or simply enjoy the great views. The work is now complete, just needs photographing.
