    “This was a lovely barn conversion with a beautiful kitchen and tastefully decorated and furnished.”

    Situated almost in the middle of the village, we were unable to hear traffic or visitors (this may be different once the bridge is reopened and through traffic is back to normal, but I doubt it) ...

    Situated almost in the middle of the village, we were unable to hear traffic or visitors (this may be different once the bridge is reopened and through traffic is back to normal, but I doubt it) Pleased that the provided towels were bath sheets for a change (like the coverage) and an efficient shower. Do need to point out that the can opener was possibly broken as we couldn't get it to work! If there was one thing I would have liked, it would have to be a small tumble dryer. The Lakes will leave you damp and muddy quite often, and while the washing machine was excellent, drying was more difficult. That however, would not stop me from booking again, I'd just bring more walking trousers with me!!

The property

This detached barn conversion is situated in the heart of Pooley Bridge close to the shores of Ullswater in the beautiful Lake District.

Being located in the heart of the village there are a selection of inns, tearooms and post office all within a stone’s throw.

Approached by steps, inside there are two bedrooms, a lovely kitchen/dining room with oak beams, a sitting room with open fire and a family bathroom.

This charming cottage is the place to stay if you are wanting to explore the area with the shores of Ullswater just a few minutes walk away.

Why not hop on board the Ullswater Steamer and cruise down the lake to Glenridding which sits just below Helvellyn and Stridding Edge?

The rather unspoilt side of the lake is also great for escaping the everyday hustle and bustle with spectacular fells leading all the way down to Martindale.

At Glenridding you can hire rowing boats and enjoy the peaceful scenery.

This cosy and well equipped holiday cottage is a perfect base for a super family holiday.

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.
