“I would like to start on a positive.”
The cottage is quite spacious for a family in the summer. Our holiday was in March and the heating in the cottage was not adequate just old style storage heater. They may have heated up the cottage all day when we weren’t there but where depleted by the time we got home in the evening. There was what I believed to be a electric fire and no way it seemed to get it to work. After switching on the power and trying to use the remote control and searching for ages to see if there was any on off switches I gave up on trying to get it to work. When we first entered the reception I was gobsmacked to be asked for my card to verify the booking which was paid for in full. I can understand there maybe a need to check that I am who I say I am but for all the details of my card including the three digit number on the back to be written down is wrong. My next complaint is Wi-Fi or sorry lack of Wi-Fi. It clearly states that there is Wi-Fi but there was none in the cottage which made it very difficult to plan our weeks walking holiday. It said in the leaflet left in the cottage there was Wi-Fi down in the communal area but that’s not what you are led to believe in a blurb on the Sykes website. To rub salt in our wounds, when we left with a 300 mile journey home and the threat of snow and severe well conditions we waited after 8 o’clock to when we believe the reception would be open to drop off the keys. At nearly 8:30, I believe the time was the reception door was locked and it was already snowing and blowing a gale. I checked through a window and saw the girl who booked in was on the telephone as she gestured to me that she was going to continue to finish her phone call. After a few minutes I got the totally fed up of standing in the freezing cold and the snow and with the fear that we may not be able to get home I hung the keys on the door handle and left, never to return to this campsite. I would like to stay here but I never ever give reviews unless they are positive and richly deserved. On this occasion as you emailed me for a review I have given you one
“Clean, comfortable and on a friendly, well maintained park.”
very clean kitchen , bathroom and bedding. Comfortable living area and lovely outside space at the back of the cottage. Barbecue area and picnic bench for alfresco dining. The overhead wardrobes in the double bed were a bit confining, but overall accommodation was of a good size and amply furnished. Very steep hill up to the cottage from park facilities so would not recommend for disabled or those with walking difficulties. Pet friendly.
This was the second time we stayed at the cottage , had a fab time , carnt fault a thing , staff on site very friendly and helpful

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.
