    • “Excellent Accomodation”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “My family of 9 stayed here in the Parklands cottage and thoroughly enjoyed both the quality accommodation and the stunning views over lake Ullswater. There are plenty of things to do on site but you are also able to enjoy the peace and quiet and sheer beauty of the lake district. This is a most excellent part of the lakes to be in with everything close at hand. Would heartily recommend”

    • “Perfect for a group. Did check level access for one elderly member and I was assured it was easy .. it wasn't and would worry about steps with small children but the sleeping arrangements and communal rooms worked very well for us. Lovely to sit 10 round the table. Although in middle of holiday park felt very private, layout makes it feel quite isolated.”

    • “Great Cottage, Plenty of Room and the facilities on site are fan”

    • “We stayed in Parklands with 4 young children, 2 grand Parents & 4 adults. Ther is plenty of room and we didn't once feel on top of each other. There was a secure gate at the top of the spiral stair case which could be locked, so we could allow the little ones to roam freely without fear of them falling down. The cottage was lovely and warm and the wood burner added to the comfort. The staff onsite are very welcoming and they have got two great childrens play area's. We would go there again in a flash.”

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.
