The Local Area around Dalemain & Ullswater

Dalemain is beautifully situated in the heart of the Lake District only 2 miles from Lake Ullswater and the lake steamers, 6 miles from the Caldbeck fells and is very close to the Pennines and the mountains of the English lakes. The village of Dacre is only one mile along an estate road, and has a beautiful little church, a castle that is part of the Dalemain estate and an 18th century coaching inn.
