    • “Margaret House is a lovely holiday rental, very close to the village with a selection of pubs and well located for walking. The house was lovely, only negative point from us was dining chairs need recovering. There was 6 of us and we had adequate space. Would highly recommend. thank you”

    Miss Waters, Cheadle, November 2018

    • “Overall, the accommodation is of a very high standard. However, a few things need to be improved: 1) Some kitchen equipment is lacking, e.g. no large frying pan (even though this cottage accommodates 8 people), the wok needs replacing, some pan handles were worryingly loose, and a large lidded saute pan would be very useful. 2) Most tumblers provided in the kitchen are a horrible green plastic. Please could we have glassware? 3) In one of the main bedrooms, the light in the en-suite didn't work and the mirror looks like it could fall off at any moment. Having said all this, we would happily stay here again - it is a lovely spacious house in a great location.”

    Mr Schofield, Ellesmere Port, June 2018

    • “The house was excellent and in a good location and generally couldn’t fault it. However the light in the en suite bathroom in double room wasn’t working and the mirror was loose. Just a suggestion to the owner there was only one key for the house and another one would have been handy. There are two picknick benches on the patio but some comfortable seating would have been appreciated as we had a hot sunny week and it would have been nice to sit outside in comfort. The only other thing I would say is that perhaps the house is not suitable for older people. The ground floor is on two levels with steps in between, the two 80 yr olds we had with us found them a bit of a struggle. Did not spoil our enjoyment of the holiday and enjoyed staying in the house which is a short stroll into Pooley Bridge. Plenty of walks from the house. Good location for visiting north Cumbria and Westmorland. Would recommend the Eden Valley.”

    Mr Dyer, RHYL, May 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.
