    “Spent one week at Smithy Cottage in May 2021.”

    Prior to arrival we had been worried about some online reviews suggesting poor cleanliness but we contacted Sykes about this and they checked with the owner and informed us that the owner had responded to comments and changed their cleaning company.

    Prior to arrival we had been worried about some online reviews suggesting poor cleanliness but we contacted Sykes about this and they checked with the owner and informed us that the owner had responded to comments and changed their cleaning company. We were not disappointed - the cottage was a great find, well laid out, homely and spotlessy clean. It lacked some basic kitchen utensils (serving spoon, pasta bowls, functional tin opener) but otherwise was perfect with everything we needed (loo roll, kitchen roll, tea, coffee, dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid etc provided). The location is within easy reach of the whole of the North Lakes whilst being off the main tourist routes. The village of Tirril is quiet with short walks from the door and a welcoming pub with good food. I would definitely stay again.

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.
