Ullswater Self-catering Accommodation on Dalemain Estate

The Bungalow is Dalemain Estate’s unique, self-catering property in remote Martindale – call 017684 86450 to book

Situated on the historical Dalemain Estate, at the head of Martindale in the ancient deer forest, lies The Bungalow, a detached, single storey former shooting lodge that was constructed in 1910 by the Earl of Lonsdale (of Lowther Castle) for a visit by Kaiser Wilhelm to the Martindale deer shoot.

Sleeping up to 12, this property offers very private, self-catering accommodation with a difference. The house is an ideal place to stay for large or extended families, or 2 or 3 families holidaying together. For an idea of layout and space click Floor Plan to Scale.

The Bungalow is an ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of modern life – there is no internet or mobile phone signal, and no TV. Lighting, cooking, and heating is all by gas, and it is necessary for guests to bring their own drinking water. This should be kept in mind when guests have those in their party with medical conditions or disabilities.

Set in an extremely isolated position, at the end of very steep, uneven track, and surrounded by spectacular Lake District scenery, The Bungalow offers an excellent base for walking and watching birds, red deer and other wildlife.

Backed by the famous High Street range, opposite the Nab and Beda Fell, and near to Hallin Fell and Place Fell, this holiday cottage offers unrivalled opportunities to explore the Lakeland fells. Various walks may be combined with a cruise on the famous Ullswater ‘Steamers’, taking in spectacular views of the lake, valley and the majestic Helvellyn range. You can walk to Glenridding, sail to Howtown and walk back to the Bungalow (or vice versa). Nearby, you can indulge yourself at the famous Sharrow Bay Country House Hotel
