Ullswater is the second-longest of the Cumbrian lakes. Popular paths wind their way along both sides of the lake or, if you prefer to spend your time on rather than beside the water, steamers can be boarded and rowing boats hired. There are also spectacular mountains on offer; Helvellyn can be climbed from the village of Glenridding, whilst on the far side of the lake, the remote valley of Martindale offers access to an expanse of seldom-walked fells, where your main company will be the sheep and the skylarks.
