  • "The property is extremely, clean, well appointed and very well equipped."

    No cable tv but plenty of cd's available. Easy parking and within a very short walk of several good pubs and eating places. We really enjoyed our stay and would thoroughly recommend The Nook.

  • "Great location house exactly what we needed can leave the car and walk."

    Good eats in village but difficult to get in due to amount of campers around as well as cottages overall great stay

  • "The cottage and location was great and really cosy with lots of space."

    We had a lovely time, and it was really helpful having the garage to store bikes and the utility room to dry clothes & shoes. My only small note is that there weren't many bowls, but wasn't a major issue.

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.
