Book Now / Availability


Julie’s Cottage was originally a farm cottage that now forms flexible and spacious self-catering accommodation in a traditional Lakeland stone building. It is situated in the hamlet of Bennethead which is surrounded by beautiful Ullswater countryside with views of the surrounding fells of the Northern Lake District. This part of the Lake District tends to be less busy than the Southern Lake District and the Windermere area, but has excellent access to the mountains and a wide range of activities.

Julie’s Cottage is perfect for a family or for two couples. It sleeps up to six people in the three bedrooms; a super king size double, a triple with a second super king size bed and a single. A baby’s cot is available in addition.

Living accommodation includes a large lounge with wood-burning stove and comfortable leather sofas, and a separate dining room.

The well-equipped kitchen is a feature of the property. It includes granite worktops, a range, Belfast sink and good range of units. There is also a dining area with table and six chairs.

Heating is provided through thermostatically controlled electric radiators, and the very effective wood-burning stove in the lounge.

Mobile reception is erratic and varies around the property. However, there is good fibre broadband and free wi-fi so wi-fi calling apps and messaging may be used readily.


Julie’s Cottage sleeps six in three bedrooms, a double, a triple and a single.
