Patterdale makes a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful Lake District. It is ideally located for climbing Helvellyn and the surrounding fells, and is also a stones throw from Lake Ullswater with a wide variety of activities including sailing, fishing and windsurfing, or taking a relaxing ride on the Ullswater Steamers. Our B&B is situated on the Coast to Coast walk, made famous by Alfred Wainwright.
Patterdale itself has a well-stocked village store which is open 7 days a week. Cash-back is available here, along with newspapers, hot and cold snacks, outdoor gear, souveniers, and just about all the essentials you could possibly need!
