Matson Ground Holiday Cottages started out as an organic farm in Windermere and Ullswater. The locations became a part of the business as much as the people running it and that philosophy hasn’t changed. The Windermere farm is Matson Ground Farm and the one based in Ullswater is Braesteads Farm. It’s the farmland that makes it seem even more contrasted to suburban life, making Holidays at Matson Ground Holiday Cottages extra special.
The age of the cottages dates back from as long as the 1600’s, some more recent than others dating back to the 1800’s. Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere, Glenridding and Patterdale are the villages closest to the separate cottage locations. They are all walking distance from their nearest village and are highly visited tourist areas with great available attractions. The cottage locations are well isolated and make for a real Lake District getaway. If you do fancy a tea or coffee, it’s only a short walk.
As you would expect, there are rules and regulations of living and renting out in the Lake District, as it’s a national park. This of great importance as it seeks to preserve the magic location and the beautiful scenery. We don’t need rules to motivate us but if you want to see, here are our Environmental Policy has all the details.
We also offer pet friendly holiday cottages, which are all the rage at the moment because it gives you the freedom to bring them on holiday with you, rather than keep them at home or the stress of having someone look after your beloved animals. The Lake District is an ideal spot for dog walkers because there is a great walks all over. Ullswater has great walks all around the Lake and all the dogs, who like a swim, are usually very happy.
