    “The extraction fan above the cooker was not working the button to change the fan speed was broken (missing), the kettle had been repaired using glue and wooden sticks on the on button (so feels like it will break on someone), the window adjacent to the cooker has a key stuck in it and can’t open.”

    Considering it is luxury some handsoap in the bathrooms is a very low cost to provide as is washing up liquid, and bedding for the cot, and you wouldn’t expect bodged repairs on kettles and so forth. The duvets are very thin on the single beds leading to my in laws feeling less comfortable than I would like. ...

    Considering it is luxury some handsoap in the bathrooms is a very low cost to provide as is washing up liquid, and bedding for the cot, and you wouldn’t expect bodged repairs on kettles and so forth. The duvets are very thin on the single beds leading to my in laws feeling less comfortable than I would like. I would recommend a manual for the cooker or instructions (the electricity had been switched off and the clock is not straightforward to set up (which it needs to be to use the oven). Likewise for the heating system.

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.
