    • “The cottage was well equipped for two people, comfortable and full of character. It is on the edge of a very good village, with three good pubs, a cafe and some useful grocery and general shops. An ideal base for exploring the Lake District. Sykes Cottages usually provide a welcome pack - there was not a comprehensive folder in Blacksmith’s Cottage and this was missed! We would also have appreciated some notification about parking arrangements in our booking confirmation as these are not immediately obvious - I had to phone the owner when we arrived. The weather was very cold and although one expects temperature to be relatively low in an old house, a more efficient wood burner would be helpful. These remarks intended to be ‘constructive criticism’ to help develop the experience for future guests.”

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.
