Pocket Guide: Lake District Aira Force Hotels

Lying in the north-west of England, Cumbria is home to some of the country's most dramatic and breath-taking natural landscapes. The large, rural county contains a heady blend of lakes, mountains and welcoming villages. Come rain or shine, Cumbria is a dream holiday destination for keen ramblers, artists, and anyone who appreciates the beauty of the great outdoors. Among the county's highlights is Aira Force, a waterfall which is equally impressive and idyllic. Located beside Ullswater, the waterfall is close to some of the county's finest hotels.

An Enchanting Waterfall

Translating from the Old Norse for 'the waterfall on gravel bank river', Aira Force is dramatic, unexpected, and unique. The Aira Beck stream falls some 70 feet to create an awe-inspiring sight, just minutes from the large body of water known as Ullswater. The National Trust-owned site is a popular spot with visiting tourists, and for good reason - it's the perfect photo opportunity!

The stunning waterfall has been impressing visitors to Cumbria for a long time. Aira Force actually appeared in the poetry of the revered William Wordsworth. It remains as beautiful today as Wordsworth wrote then.

There's a car park near the waterfall, but the main site is reached on foot, following a gorgeous woodland walk. There's also a small tearoom where visitors can grab hot and cold drinks, and a slice of homemade cake.

Hotels near Aira Force

Aira Force and Ullswater are located right in the heart of the county, between Carlisle and Kendall. This puts it within touching distance of some of the best hotels in Cumbria.

Macdonald Leeming House is located in Watermillock itself, just minutes from Aira Force. The four-star hotel is set within stunning grounds and is an easy walk from the lake. There's a library in the hotel, and an exquisite restaurant serving evening meals.

Those preferring an intimate bed and breakfast environment can head for Sockbridge Mill B&B, a little way from the north-eastern tip of Ullswater. The four-star B&B is housed within a gorgeous stone property. With greenery growing up the exterior walls, the building blends sweetly into the surrounding countryside.
