We have booked eight places for three nights in the well-equipped George Starkey Hut at Patterdale, by Ullswater, in the heart of Lakeland’s Eastern Fells. It is ideally placed for the High Street range to the East, whilst from the front there is a splendid view of Helvellyn and its neighbouring fells: to reach them, all you have to do is put on your boots and walk from the Hut.

The local shop in Patterdale, open every day, is five minutes walk away as is the local pub and hotel. Other hotels, pub and shops are located in Glenridding, about twenty minutes walk or five minutes by car.
