Legend has it that in the 15th century St. Patrick, having been marooned on Duddon Sands, walked 30 miles overland to this valley and gave Patterdale it’s ancient name of St. Patrick’s dale. There is a well dedicated to the saint by the roadside at between Glenridding and Patterdale. The pretty village church was built and named St. Patrick’s in 1853.

Situated directly on the route of the world famous Coast to Coast walk, Patterdale caters for all levels of Lakeland enthusiasts. The great benefit for most is that you access the fells and lake straight from the village, with no need to use a car. For the casual walker the ullswater steamers sail to various points of the lake allowing a gentle walk around the shoreline. For the more adventurous Helvellyn, Place Fell, Sheffield Pike and St Sunday Crag are all close by. 

It was the area around Patterdale that inspired Wordsworth to pen his famous poem in 1804.

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Daffodils flourish in the area as one of the few plants not eaten by sheep! Wordsworth is also said to have been drinking in the White Lion Inn, when he first heard of Nelson's death at the Battle of Trafalgar.

Also home to the Patterdale Mountain Rescue team - like all of the groups entirely reliant on voluntary donations and well worth supporting as you never know when you might need them!
