    Look at the Sir Donald Campbell stone

    by uglyscot Written Jul 3, 2011

    Near the office of Ullswater Steamers is a stome to commemorate the achievement of Sir Donald Campbell who broke the World Water Speed Record on 23 July 1955. His Hydroplane K7 reached a record 202.32 mph.

    He later was killed on Loch Ness trying to beat his own record.

Glenridding Restaurants

  • Helvellyn Country Kitchen: Nice cafe in Glenridding

    by misodoctakleidist Written Apr 14, 2014

    Helvellyn Country Kitchen is a clean well-decorated cafe with plenty of seating situated next to Ullswater Beck. The walls are used to display paintings by local artists which you can also buy.

    Their coffee is freshly ground and they offer a range of flavoured syrups. I opted for the gingerbread which was delicious.

    Would recommend.

    Favorite Dish: The gingerbread latte.

Glenridding Transportation

    walk or water

    by uglyscot Written Jul 3, 2011

    We arrived by car and drove along the lake. Finding somewhere to park was difficult, until we managed to get a slot near the Pier for the steamers.
    To get around Ullswater, the ideal means is by boat whether the Ullswater steamer, yacht or canoe.
    Many people prefer to combine one of these methods and walk the rest of the way.
    Or motorcyclists travel in groups, roaring through the peaceful environment.
