    • “Comfortable and well located”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Cottage is ideal for two or a small family, comfortable and fairly well equipped. Sky TV is the basic package, books, games, DVD player and DVDs provided if the weather isn't too good. Location of cottage is excellent, easy walks to Aria Force and Ullswater surroundings, the Helvellyn area is also within reach if you prefer a longer walk. Keswick and Penrith both about 20 minutes by car. Pub nearby, about 50 yards from the cottage, good food the evening we had a meal - excellent home made pies. Cottage lost a star from the overall rating due to some aspects needing attention, e.g. shower floor and other areas of the bathroom need new grout. Hopefully these will be resolved in the near future.”

Regional Information

POOLEY BRIDGE Penrith 6 miles. The picturesque village of Pooley Bridge sits on the northerly edge of Lake Ullswater in the Lake District National Park. The name Pooley came to be due to the forming of a large pool, which was left by the fast flowing River Eamont, and the word Bridge was later added when a bridge, which is now 250 years old, was built over the river. Pooley Bridge has many traditional inns and tempting tea rooms, plus the Ullswater Steamers depart from the village, from where a tranquil cruise down the lake to the villages of Glenridding and Howtown can be enjoyed. There are numerous walks with breathtaking views nearby, plus a short walk up to Dunmallard Hill reveals fascinating Iron-Age remains, whilst the towns of Penrith and Keswick are within driving distance. Pooley Bridge is an ideal base for a cottage holiday stay in the stunning Lake District.
