    “The cottage is lovely.”

    Perhaps only suitable for a couple and children rather than 4 adults. And certainly not for the infirm. But our 9 year old loved pretending she was Heidi climbing upstairs. The setting is stunning. We heard and then saw two woodpeckers from the cottage. We saw red squirrels and heard a cuckoo. The track up to the cottage is fine if you drive slowly. The kitchen is very well equipped. We heartily recommend this holiday home.

About the location

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.
