Ullswater landscape photography location in Lake District.


lake district location guide

Located in the North-East of the Lake District lies Ullswater, Lakelands second largest lake. Home to Ullswater are a few popular iconic photography locations such as; The Duke of Portland Boathouse on the Pooley Bridge end, Aira Force waterfall and Wall Holm Island on the opposite end near Glenridding! A short trip up the road, towards Kirkstone Pass will find you in the Hartsop Valley, with locations such as Brotherswater; A low level lake, great for capturing reflections and Deepdale Beck; a brief wander which will have you in complete isolation in no time!

Ullswater is easily accessible, especially if you're traveling south bound down the M6 or on the A66 from Keswick. From J40 on the M6, take the first exit onto the A66, then take the second exit onto the A592 and continue on this road, which after around 10 minutes will lead you to Pooley Bridge on the Northern side of Ullswater. 

If you're coming North bound up the M6, then you could take the Kirkstone Pass which would get you to Hartsop quicker. However, if aiming for the Pooley Bridge end, it's a lot quicker staying on the M6 until J40! If time isn't of the essense and its not pitch black outside, then Kirkstone is a fantastic scenic route which I would absolutely recommend, just for the experience!
