Lake District Cottages

The sleepy little conservation village of Helton perches on the hillside only 3 miles away from Ullswater across Askham fell in the North East corner of the Lake District national Park. Lakeland Slate and Stone cottages predominate. Beautiful walks through the Lowther estate lead to the neighbouring village of Askham, one mile to the North with 2 pubs, post office, village shop and open air heated swimming pool. South of Helton is the road to Bampton and Haweswater, with the drowned village of Mardale beneath.

The market town of Penrith with supermarkets, speciality shops and restaurants is just 5 miles away. Talbot House and Talbot Studio are ideally located for those who wish to walk, fish, cycle or just enjoy. Facilities include a shared terraced garden, with table and chairs and BBQ for those outside evenings. There is a spacious utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer and a secure locked garage for bicycles or a small boat.

Within a five mile radius there are cycles for hire, pony trekking, water sports, leisure, health and beauty. Children are welcome from any age, plenty of door step walking means well behaved pets are more than welcome.

Short breaks starting on a Monday or Friday are available all year. All prices include bed linen, towels, heating and electricity.
