    Grey Walls is an impressive and quite outstanding detached country house, standing in an elevated position within extensive grounds. Its superb Lakeland location, in the village of Patterdale, lies at the southern end of Ullswater. Architect designed, it incorporates fascinating features such as oriel windows, all set in dressed stone. Internally the accommodation has a unique character, with oak panelling and a 17th-century court cupboard. The house manages to incorporate cottage charm, with the majority of rooms taking advantage of the exquisite outlooks. The grounds are delightful; they are all south facing and include extensive terracing, with water features, fish pond and broad areas of lawn with rhododendron bushes. There are magnificent fell views in all directions. Kirkstone Pass rises up to the south of the village dropping down into Ambleside and Windermere, so the location is central to both the North and South Lakes, and therefore excellent for touring the National Park. Above the valley behind Patterdale is the famous Striding Edge, a knife edge ridge, leading onto Helvellyn and is popular among more serious walkers. For a less strenuous walk you will find Aira Force, a short drive north, which is the Lake District’s most famous waterfall. There are watersports available on the lake and the steamer is a beautiful way to enjoy the scenery.

    Grey walls is a beautiful house in a super position, unfortunately we found the house in need of a little repair. We alerted the local office of the problems and the outside steps which were dangerously loose were repaired the same day. Other problems, bathroom broken toilet seat and door handle, broken dining chair arm, broken floorboards in hallway, carpet gripper showing through carpet in lounge entrance, dirty oven trays, kitchen floor needed a good scrub! Wasp nest outside bathroom window. Also the description did not convey how steep the stairway to the property is

    A lovely cottage for a larger group in a fabulous setting. Local Post Office and shop, pub and hotel nearby. Bus stop at the end of the lane for non drivers. Beds very comfortable and spacious accommodation and big garden. I wouldn’t recommend for very young children due to ponds and steps. Due to location we were able to walk from cottage so rarely needed to use the car.

    A spacious house in a stunning location and an excellent base to explore this area of the Lake District. The house was well equipped but there were a number of relatively minor issues. There is a serious damp issue in one of the bedrooms with black mould on the walls. Many of the interior doors do not fit well and are difficult to open/close. There was a wasps nest in the roof so some windows had to be kept closed to keep them out of the house. The garden was sadly neglected, though the grass was cut, with many weeds and nettles in all the beds. Also the steps around the terraces had many loose slabs making them rather dangerous.

    The location of this house is simply stunning. There isn't a window without a view. The house is well stocked up with all you could need with modern equipment. Warm, cosy and comfortable and very clean we didn't have any gripes whatsoever (except having to leave after such a lovely weekend).

    Our 3rd visit - lovely walks from the house, good food at the Ramblers Bar and good beers/pub experience at the White Lion. Newly decorated for this year - house is perfect.

    Grey walls is ideally situated for some fabulous walks in the local vicinity. We’re very familiar with Ullswater and were able to easily do some of our favourite walks. We stayed for Christmas and planned to cook on Christmas Day. I took a lot of cooking equipment with me as wasn’t sure what there’d be - I needn’t have bothered as the house was very well equipped. The house is comfortably furnished without being too pristine - ideal when holidaying with dogs. Would definitely recommend and think the huge garden would be wonderful in summer. Only downside - no coffee maker so took our own.

    We had an excellent holiday at Grey Walls. The cottage was very spacious, yet warm, cosy, comfortable and welcoming, even in the most appalling weather at the start of the week. We were a group of four adult couples and one dog, and found the living room and dining room perfect for spending time together, but there was always space for people to have a bit of time out from the group when they wanted it. The location was truly superb. Everyone (including the dog) loved the ever-changing views from the house, and there is plenty of fell-walking straight from the door - we barely used the cars. Red deer rutting season had started, and we could see and hear the stags up on the fell, and a red squirrel visited the garden. Something for everyone.
