The scenic region of The Lake District is synonymous with dramatic landscapes and soaring peaks, with perhaps none more famous than the mighty Helvellyn. Cumbria Crystal was inspired to immortalise the breathtaking natural beauty of the mountain with our stunning Helvellyn collection.
The aesthetics of this range are rooted in traditional Jacobean design, exuding a timeless elegance that can be enjoyed across any occasion. The elegant pattern of flutes and olives was designed by the founder of Cumbria Crystal, Lady Grania Cavendish, in 1976. Whether raising a glass of champagne at a dinner party or enjoying a whisky and unwinding with friends, you will elevate your gathering to heights worthy of the iconic peak itself.
Take your crystalware collection to new heights with our Helvellyn range.
In the sprawling 866 square miles of Lake District National Park, Helvellyn stands tall as one of the most iconic landmarks in the region. Towering over the landscape at 950 metres in height, the mountain is the third-highest peak in both The Lake District and England.
The peak enjoys easy access, a thrilling mix of manageable trails, and challenging scrambles, including the famous Striding Edge. Featuring sheer drops on either side, the route takes you from Mires Beck up from Glenridding, where you’ll soon catch your first sight of the imposing Helvellyn. From there, you’re soon onto the ridge of Striding Edge, where you can take in the Helvellyn summit before descending with a scramble down Swirral Edge
Helvellyn is a magnet for hikers and climbers of all experience levels, with the town of Ambleside and the waters of Ullswater close by for tasty refreshments or a cooling spot of wild swimming.
Our Helvellyn collection celebrates this enchanting area in true Cumbria Crystal style, taking inspiration from the landscape's undulating curves and dramatic lines. The result is an extensive selection of crystalware that is perfect for all occasions and includes champagne glasses, decanters, gin glasses and stemware, as well as some stunning crystal bowls and vases that will cohesively tie your decor and barware together.
