Ullswater Heights is a gorgeous collection of lodges and unique safari tents just 6.5 miles from Ullswater. The accommodation is both spacious and stylish with the safari tents really taking luxury glamping to the next level.
Ullswater itself has long been a favourite for tourists to the Lake District and is without doubt one of the most beautiful area. You can stroll around the lake on foot or take a ride on an Ullswater Steamer. There are also plenty of watersports to enjoy. You'll find some lovely pubs and restarurants nearby as well as the charming village of Greystoke.
Some of the rarest wildlife in the UK can be seen in this area including red deer, red squirrels and peregerine falcons.
We love the Contemporary 4 View Lodge which offers amazing views over the quarry lake. The lodge is spacious and luxurious with a fantastic outdoor decking area housing garden furniture and a bubbling outdoor hot tub. The interior design and finishing touches are outstanding. The Contemporary 6 lodge is also a lovely option and pet friendly too!
For a really unique holiday experience the safari tents are brilliant! The Safari Tent Simplex sleeping 6 has one double bedroom, one twin and one ladder from the living room leading to a double cabin bed which kids will love!
The safari tents have a real sense of adventure about them with their canvas tops and yet have all the luxuries of the lodges. They also come with outdoor hot tubs, ideal for relaxing and taking in the views. The Safari Tent Duplex offers more space and can sleep up to 8 guests.
For days out you could head to Carlisle Castle which is a magnificent sight full of history. Mirehouse and Gardens in Keswick are also a great place to visit with access to Bassenthwaite Lake, walled garden, maze and adventure playgrounds for the little ones
