Home to a pub and a café-cum-gallery, Uldale is located on the flanks of the Lake District’s Northern Fells. About five miles south-west of the larger village of Caldbeck, it is reached via an unfenced fell road where sheep and cattle wander freely, oblivious to any passing traffic.
The nearby Uldale Fells include several grassy tops with gently rounded slopes, ideal for hill-walkers looking for relatively straightforward routes. These include Longlands Fell (1581ft/482m) and the intriguingly named Great Cockup (1725ft/526m). Be prepared for wet ground in places though.
Two attractive bodies of water lie close to the village – Over Water and Chapel house Reservoir.
