Silver Bay, Ullswater

Silver Bay on Ullswater, otherwise known as the “secret beach”, is an absolutely beautiful spot for a hot, sunny day.  The walk in from Patterdale is approx 1.5 miles, with stunning views out over the lake, Glenridding and the Helvelyn range.

Waterside House Campsite & Pooley Bridge

We spent a couple of nights in the luxurious bell tent at Waterside House Campsite, just south of Pooley Bridge. We used the campsite as our base for our adventures, heading up to Angletarn Pikes on the first day and to Brotherswater on the second.   Not to mention swimming in Ullswater, right outside our tent and playing in the campsite playground with a magnificent backdrop!
