    “Mell View Cottage is in a great location.”

    Surrounded by farms, sheep, cows and hills - so incredibly peaceful. A very comfortable cottage with everything you need, a home away from home.

The property

A delightful, well presented, cosy rural cottage situated near Matterdale, north of Lake Ullswater in the stunning Lake District.

Mell View Cottage is a one-floor, thoughtfully renovated cottage with wooden floors and pastoral character.

Original beams, underfloor heating throughout the building, and a wood burning stove in the sitting room make this an ideal family choice even during deepest Winter.

Mell View Cottage sleeps four to six people across one double and one twin bedroom, with a sofa bed available for an additional charge, which makes the beautiful, well-equipped home, the perfect base for a family or a couple, looking to relax and explore the beautiful countryside.

Gleaming wooden floors and furnishings add to the rural charm of the cottage, while a modern, airy kitchen with clean and simple lines makes family catering a pleasure.

A large cottage-style garden with a patio and garden furniture offers uninterrupted views of the majestic Great Mell Fell - the perfect place to unwind with an evening drink, or for children to play.

Little Mell Fell, Great Mell Fell and Gowbarrow Fell surround the village and abound with stunning wooded slopes and countryside tracks for walks.

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.
