Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering in Patterdale

Patterdale is a small village in the eastern part of the Lake District in Cumbria, known for giving its name to the Patterdale Terrier dog breed whose origins are in the area. The village is located at the head of Ullswater, the second largest lake in the Lake District. This village is in an outstanding location between the north and south lakes, making it a popular holiday destination. It is the starting point for a number of popular hill walks, most notably the Striding Edge path up to Helvellyn, the third-highest point both in England and the Lake District. Other fells that can be reached from the valley include Place Fell, High Street, Glenridding Dodd, most of the peaks in the Helvellyn range, Fairfield, St Sunday Crag and Red Screes and Stony Cove Pike at the very end of the valley, standing either side of the Kirkstone Pass, which is the road to Ambleside. A legend exists that St.Patrick, patron saint of Ireland preached in Patterdale. The local parish church is dedicated to him.
