An inscription over the lake-facing door dates Wreay Farmhouse to 1787, but parts are much older and the house is mentioned in documents from the 13th century. This detached holiday home is full of character with beams, it commands views over Ullswater. Seven of the eight bedrooms overlook the lake. There is a large library of books, videos and classical CDs with good playback equipment in the public areas. The living room with its open fire is cosy, and the conservatory facing south-east catches the morning sun. Watermillock is admirably placed for visiting the Northern Lakes and fells, with excellent walking and cycling amid splendid scenery. Water sports nearby, and steamers cruise the lake throughout the year. The Brackenrigg Inn (10 mins walk) is noted for its food and the picturesque village of Pooley Bridge (3 pubs) is 2 miles away.
