  • “This cottage is in an excellent location and the advertising photos on Sykes doesn't do it justice.”

    Had a lovely week at Barn End and its a great location for walkers.

The property

Pooley Bridge 0.5 miles.

This superbly-presented semi-detached barn conversion is situated on the edge of the owners' small complex of static caravans, on a working livestock farm, close to the quaint village of Pooley Bridge, at the northerly tip of Lake Ullswater in the Lake District National Park.

Well appointed throughout to provide spacious, contemporary accommodation, this Pooley Bridge cottage is perfect for couples or small families wishing to enjoy time together in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

This Pooley Bridge holiday home has a lovely master double bedroom with a feature roll-top bath, plus there is also a single bedroom and a shower room.

The large open plan living area at this Lake District cottage has been tastefully decorated in soft neutrals colours and exudes quality and style with a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a cosy woodburning stove and soft sofas, which you can snuggle into at the end of the day.

Nearby, there is a children's play area and many excellent walks through picturesque countryside.

Pooley Bridge offers many traditional inns serving good food and delightful views across to Ullswater and the surrounding fells and mountains, and departing from the village is the Ullswater Steamers, which take you down the lake to the villages of Glenridding and Howtown.

The scenery in this area is outstanding and a drive down the side of Ullswater to Glenridding and further on up the Kirkstone Pass takes you to the bustling towns of Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere.

There are plenty of opportunities for walkers to don their boots and enjoy walks in the area, including for the most experienced Striding Edge and Helvellyn - England's third highest mountain, while the Aira Falls offer a gentler alternative.

A charming cottage, which can be enjoyed at any time of the year.

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.
