    • “This was the second year running that we thoroughly enjoyed our break at Elder Howe and will be back for a third. Possibly larger cooker would be better. But overall excellent home and great location.”

    Mr Kellachan, Coatbridge, February 2018

    • “The single beds aren't that comfortable in the triple room for adults. The bed by the window rocks a bit, it just needs fixing. We had a lovely family holiday, the lounge is great for socialising. Thanks”

    Davies, Bristol, February 2018

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.
