About Kay Wesley
We are Kay and Mike Wesley. We live in Cheshire and we have five children and a dog. We all love the great outdoors, walking, picnicking and just messing about in the countryside. We like the Highlands of Scotland and the Lake District best. We have been to the cottage lots and it is a really lovely place to just hang out, somehow seems really easy to be there and everyone is always in a good mood. Several family members have also been with gangs of friends too, which is great, and lots of friends' families have stayed. Everyone loves it and wants to come back again. So do we!
Kay Wesley purchased this cottage in 2008
Why Kay Wesley chose Uldale
We chose Emerald Bank Cottage because it is in our favourite part of the Lakes 'where the crowds don't go' and the scenery here is breathtaking, without any litter, noise or traffic. The northern Lakes are just fabulous. I think our favourite is possibly Loweswater, which hardly anyone visits, but is just lovely and a nice 5 miles round to walk with woodland and fell included in the walk. Follow it up with Steak and Ale Pie at the Kirkstile Inn and their own brewed beer. Lovely Buttermere is beautiful with a flat 4-mile walk round and also with a couple of good pubs for lunch at one end. Crummock Water is also fantastic and very quiet, with a lovely walk through the woods at the north end.
What makes this cottage unique
We've tried to think of everything we have ever wanted on all the many self-catering holidays we have been on. People remark on how well-equipped it is, from plenty of wine glasses to the iPod dock. And everyone loves the games room for evening competitions! We know how annoying it is when there is nowhere to hang your wet cagoule so we had the utility room extended to include a drying area with hooks above a big radiator, and boot racks too. We included a dog basket and dog bowls, and even bird feeders in the garden. We've added a hose in the side yard to wash your muddy boots and dog. We've included Ordinance Survey Maps of the whole Lake District as well as a number of good walking books. Our approach has worked, everyone loves staying here as much as we do - hope you do, too!
