    “Beautiful Cottage with Amazing Views”

    Just returned from a weeks stay at Meadowbank Cottage with my husband and two children (5,1). The cottage surpassed all expectations. It was clean, stylish with all the mod cons. The views are absolutely stunning, having a hot tub out the back is a bonus. The hot tub is checked several times a day to ensure the chlorine levels are correct etc so I always felt that it was safe. The extra touches in the cottage were great: wine on our arrival, small toiletries in the bathroom, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, aromatherapy oil for the diffuser in the bedroom. My 5 year old especially liked the huge garden at the front of the cottage and the park just up the hill. All this within a 5 minute walk of Pooley Bridge! I would love to return one day, had a fantastic time.

About the location


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.
