    • “Listing said that towels were included. On arrival we found that there were no towels provided. When we went back to Park Foot Holiday Park reception, we were told that there was a £10 charge for two bundles of towels, which we had to pay and would be obliged if you could refund this a.s.a.p. The listing also stated that a pub and shop were within a 5 minute walk. These were on the holiday park and as it was out of season, they were both closed. The nearest were nearly 2 miles away down a road which was not safe to walk, especially at night. You need to state this on your website that these facilities are unavailable out of season. Apart from this, the property is beautiful and comfortable. In a beautiful part of the country with views of Ullswater.”

The Property

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.
