    “Lovely property, we enjoyed our stay, we loved all the little extras like toiletries and tea coffee etc and blankets for beds, books and dvd’s etc are all a lovely addition and make it feel much more welcoming, so much more than just a basic holiday home.”

    There were just a couple of minor tweeks that could be made to make it perfect. The bedroom windows let in a lot of light so blinds would be good behind the curtains, the oven knobs made it hard to work out the temperature of the oven so we had to guess. We wouldn’t hesitate to book this property again however. Thanks

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have not long owned the property so it is a work in progress. Your suggestions are really valuable. We will be looking at the curtains and adding blinds in the near future and will change the cooker in due course. Property Owner

About the location


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.
