The property

Woodview is a stylish, all-ground-floor cottage in the Lake District National Park, nestled in the heart of the charming Pooley Bridge.

The holiday home puts a family of four in a desirable location close to amenities and wonderful attractions.

When you arrive at this charming, whitewashed cottage, you'll find off-road parking to unpack your luggage and begin your vacation!

Step inside to remove your boots and coats before entering the beautifully-finished, open-plan living space with a quirky feature map wall; feel the warmth of the underfloor heating on your feet after a long day trekking through the countryside.

In the trendy kitchen area, which features marble countertops and sleek amenities such as a built-in electric oven, microwave, and hob, prepare a hearty dinner for your loved ones.

Set the dining table for four to enjoy a family supper or savour your morning coffee at the handy breakfast bar.

For added comfort, fire up the woodburning stove, curl up on the corner sofa, and have a movie marathon on the Smart TV; guests are welcome to log into their Netflix accounts!

Open the patio doors to find a pleasant, enclosed back garden with a terrace to take advantage of the warmer days.

Before retiring to one of two bedrooms, rinse off under the rainfall shower head in the well-presented shower room, which includes a heated towel rail for added comfort.

Choose from a king-size or twin room with homely furnishings and lots of built-in storage for your hiking gear.

Pooley Bridge's attractions are right on your doorstep, including a quaint village shop and the iconic Pooley Bridge Inn, while the gorgeous Ullswater Lake provides pleasant cruises to adjacent villages such as Glenridding and Howtown.

Take your walking boots and a picnic along one of the many routes in the vicinity, such as Dunmallard Hill, which has remarkable Iron-Age relics, Little Mell Fell, and Heughscar Hill.

Make a point of seeing Aira Force Waterfall, a beautiful sight amid a vast landscape that inspired poets like William Wordsworth.

Discover ancient tales at the 14th-century Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens, as well as the majestic mediaeval ruins of Lowther Castle & Gardens.

Explore more of the Lake District with a trip to Keswick to discover the Castlerigg Stone Circle, enjoy the artworks at The Makers Mill, or be stunned by a performance at the historic Theatre By The Lake.

Plenty of breath-taking vistas can be found around Derwentwanter, with the renowned area of Borrowdale to the south and the Keswick to Threlkeld railway trail guiding guests through beautiful landscapes.

Choose Woodview for your Lake District countryside escape.

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.
