    “It was unfortunate to note on our arrival how someone had managed to burn the carpet in the back bedroom with an iron, also a burn mark on the unit adjacent to the hob.”

    There was also a broken fridge drawer, along with a few handles missing from bedroom units. It’s a shame others can’t look after things to the standard which I’m sure the owners would wish for. Good property in a beautiful location.

    There was also a broken fridge drawer, along with a few handles missing from bedroom units. It’s a shame others can’t look after things to the standard which I’m sure the owners would wish for. Good property in a beautiful location. Working room by room there are only a few things which would make a huge improvement: Kitchen - chopping board, dishwasher cutlery tray to be replaced due to present one being bottomless resulting in cutlery dropping through and hindering efficiency of machine. Lounge - cushions for sofas, appreciate soft furnishing with covid but if bedding covers can be quarantined and cleaned surely cushion covers can too! Main bathroom - the shower is appalling in terms of both flow and temperature control. Back double bedroom - both door to room and en-suite do not close! Outside - appears to be a huge sewerage issue most pungent at the front of the property which permeated into the en-suite and front bedroom - foul! Garden - furniture was functional - certainly not comfortable. Overall in bedrooms - more accessible sockets, especially near mirrors for hair drying! Great sized rooms with perfectly appointed en-suite to both rooms over lounge, ample parking to accommodate size of property. The above points are minor but would make a huge difference, we would stay again.

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.

Note: The Holiday Park is shut between Mid-November and Mid-March.
