    • “5 adults and 1 Labrador. Couldn't have found a better place to stay! Beautiful cottage with a bathroom/an suite for each bedroom. Huge loving room and stunning kitchen/conservatory leading out to a perfect enclosed garden. The fence at the bottom of the garden is a sou me layered wire fence as there were sheep in the field behind but it was perfectly secure. The sheep were very interested in my dog . Very clean and tidy and comfortable. Location is spot on, 10mins from pooley bridge, 15-20 from Penrith. Will absolutely go back again, Couldn't have asked for better.”

    • “We really enjoyed our stay at Smithy Cottage. The location for our requirements was excellent, as some of the party wanted to climb mountains and some wanted to stay local. All the facilities at the cottage were excellent. We had a meal at the pub down the road which again was excellent, and would certainly recommend this.”

    • “We were a party of 6 . Grandparents, two daughters, granddaughter (14 years) grandson( 6months) Plenty of space for us all. Village offered opportunity to meander with baby and young dog. Walked along small roads to Pooley bridge , we also walked back but could have caught the bus if we had wanted to.. Took the all day steamer to Glenridding and onto Airs force ( think there could have been a concession for parking at Pooley Bridge if taking the all day ferry ). Visited Penrith ; Birds of Prey and Keswick . There was just a couple of things neglected eg a tap and toilet in main bathroom, blind in double bedroom & back twin bedroom , chairs in conservarory and front door lock. nevertheless a lovely relaxing week Thank you”

    • “We had a lovely holiday staying at this cottage,spacious with private garden(despite the weather). The local pub served very nice food although probably more expensive than further afield. Good location for getting to most areas Just a couple of niggles...No towels are provided and there is only one tiny wardrobe in the master bedroom, no others at all!”

    • “The taps on the sink in the bathroom were very awkward and didn’t work properly and there was no light bulb in the bedside lamp of the adjoining twin room. However, everything else was excellent. The 6 of us were very happy with the accommodation. All necessary appliances in the kitchen and a very roomy lounge. Lovely cosy cottage.”

    Mrs Bond, Wigan, November 2018

    • “Central heating and hot water didn’t work on second day. Managed to figure it out that night but felt it was tricky to understand. Would have been even trickier for someone from a foreign country with limited English. Loved the little pub down the road!”

    Mrs Haigh, Newtownards, October 2018

    • “Very spacious and well-equipped cottage handily situated between Penrith and Ullswater; on this road but not too noisy. View from the back was of fields, which we enjoyed very much. The pub a few doors away was good - competent pub food and very friendly and efficient. Bus service was useful - every 2 hours to Ullswater when we were there (early July), every 2 weeks in the high season. Only gripe was that the wi-fi was very slow - only just about usable; a small criticism of a very good cottage, though.”

    Mr Hart, Solihull, July 2018

    • “I made a formal complaint and the info is all in the e-mail I sent during my stay”

    Mrs Colclough, HIGH WYCOMBE, September 2018

    • “Taps in the sink in the bathroom leaked. The hot water would not turn off. No wardrobes in the two twin rooms. Only 2 chairs in the conservatory for 6 people. Basic but comfortable.”

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.
