Hotels in Glenridding
In the middle of the scenic Lake District, Glenridding is the gateway to some of the area's most challenging mountains and climbs. The name of the village means ‘glen overgrown with bracken' – today it's a pristine example of world-famous British countryside. It owes today's tourist boom to the old Greenside Mine which sits above the village. The mining industry led to the first houses being built here for people to settle in.
The Lake District
Glenridding appeared prominently in TV drama The Lakes, which was shot on location at the village's Ullswater Hotel. Glenridding hotels are convenient for making your way into and around the Lake District.
The closest lake is Ullswater, the second largest in the Lake District. It's nine miles long and three quarters of a mile wide, and considered one of the prettiest English lakes.
The Lake District also contains England's two longest and deepest lakes, Wastwater and Windermere, as well as Scafell Pike which is our highest mountain. These are some of the more popular and most-photographed tourist attractions in the area.
Things to do in Glenridding
The village is used as a base for hikers and mountain climbers to take on Helvellyn, England's third-tallest mountain. Nearby Glenridding Dodd trails down from the mountain, and the rocks here are part of the Borrowdale Volcanic Group dating back 450 million years.
Glenridding is also where the award-winning Ullswater ‘Steamers' are based. They run lake tours and cruises, giving you a more relaxed and serene view of the lake and surrounding countryside.
If you visit at Easter, you might catch the annual duck race. It's held to raise funds for mountain rescue teams.
Glenridding is to the south of the larger Ullswater area, which has its own attractions. It's on the edge of the Far Eastern Fells section of the Lake District.
There are lots of lanes around for walking and mountain biking. From the Ullswater ferry drop off points, you can take a scenic 7-mile path between Glenridding and Howtown. It meanders along the lakeside and under the Silver Crag.
