  • "Lovely cottage."

    ..nice location with pleasant outlook... private parking space to rear ...One draw back no freezer compartment which when self catering is important ...Outside patio area by French doors we feel is in need of some maintenance .

  • "What a fabulous little cottage in a delightful village."

    This cosy cottage had everything we needed and the location was perfect to explore the beautiful Lake District. The cottage is full of charm and although it doesn’t have central heating, it didn’t take very long to light the wood burner which added to the charm of our holiday. Plenty of quality eating places in the village if we didn’t want to cook. There was a welcome pack when we arrived and we would definitely stay there again.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We look forward to hosting you again Property Owner

    Yes I would take a holiday there again however not early in the year as the downstairs heating is inadequate. the fire that is supposed to give the background heating is not up to the job, so when coming downstairs in the morning the cold came up to meet you. Yes there is a log burner but in the week I was there you would have had to have that burning during night. Shame really

    Kitchen well equipped, although it would have been even better to have had a small freezer section in the fridge, at least for ice making! The outside terrace and path was very uneven. The wooden patio furniture needs to be maintained, a chair bottom strut was broken ( we thought seat cushions could have been stored in the little shed and would have made this more comfortable). Bath sheets for the week would be better than bath towels. The welcome pack was much appreciated.

  • "The cottage is very nice, well appointed and in a lovely location."

    The owners have gone to a lot of expense and effort in producing such a lovely cottage with some very nice touches. A real bonus having the allocated parking space at the back. There were a few niggling issues but this didn’t stop us having a great week there and we would return: Smart TV - the remote control was problematic Microwave - the inside didn’t look good. Heating - wasn’t expecting to need this but some evenings a bit cool. Don’t like log fires so tried to use the electric heater in the lounge - didn’t work. So brought down the free standing one in the bedroom which was a bit of an effort. Mould around upstairs windows - not excessive but just doesn’t look nice.

    The “mould” around windows is not mould. It is the black sealant within the double glazed units. The downstairs electric stove is a radiator set to a maximum of 19C. The extra heating is provided by a very efficient log burner for which there is a plentiful supply of logs and kindling. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Blacksmiths and hope you visit again. Property Owner

  • "Very conveniently located cottage with one parking space."

    There is a large bed in a similarly large bedroom which is very comfortable and has double aspect views. The downside, it has no heating except a portable electric radiator which works well when on.The bathroom is very modern and nicely presented with electric heated towel rail and underfloor heating.The shower is excellent but just has a “ rainfall” head and no hand held part which would be useful, and there is no shelf for toiletries except the floor. The kitchen is small but has everything one needs, good supply of crockery utensils etc.The downside, it has a very uneven old stone floor that has been painted. A good welcome pack was supplied including tea, coffee, wine, biscuits etc..very nice. The lounge / dining area was very comfortable for two people, including a small dining table and two chairs. Nice view out the back of a field with sheep and lambs. The TV was ok but the remote a bit suspect. The downside was heating, just a small, rather ineffective, electric radiator. The main heating was a log burning stove which, of course, needed lighting each was easy to light with supplied firefighters and just sufficient kindling and logs to last the week. All in all, we had a very relaxing week, we love Pooley Bridge..and would recommend Blacksmiths Cottage especially for a Summer visit.

    Thank you for your feedback. Blacksmiths Cottage is a 16th Century stone built building and unfortunately limited to the type of heating that can be installed, hence underfloor heating a log burner downstairs. We endeavour to make our customers stay as comfortable as possible and are glad that you had a relaxing week in our lovely cottage. Property Owner

  • "Heating for the downstairs was totally inadequate for cold weather, log burner (which you have to feed every few mins) and a heater."

    When we arrived on Saturday the whole cottage was like an ice box, didn’t seem welcoming at all. We sent an email to Sykes regarding this on the Tuesday of our visit which has still not been answered! I suggest you read that for further information.

    I am very sorry you felt this way. No one else this winter has found the cottage cold. The Morso Squirrel wood burner has been much admired and appreciated by many previous guests. The rate at which it burns depends on you regulating the air flow which is very simple to do. Also there was a large supply of logs provided . The radiator in the lounge is no longer a night store so it works all day if necessary providing background heating to 19C. As to you not getting a response from Lakes Cottages to your email, they do not accept emails so you would need to contact them by messaging on your customer portal. You also had our “owner” contact telephone number. Property Owner

There isn't a freezer but we managed fine without one. The bedroom and en-suite is large and bright with double aspect windows, large comfy bed and plenty room for clothes etc. Large shower. May be worth a mention to less mobile guests would be the narrow staircase and uneven stone floor in the kitchen are a bit unnerving at first but didn't cause us any major problems.

    We arrived in the village in mid afternoon when a cheeky peep through the window revealed that the cottage was ready early. The private parking next to the cottage was important as Pooley Bridge is a popular area and soon fills with visitors. Inside the cottage, the generous welcome pack was appreciated and added to the positive first impressions. We had weather varying from hot sunshine through to snow and hail through which the cottage stayed cosy, sometimes helped by the log burner. The shower and comfortable bed easily accommodated a taller visitor. Guests, unsteady on their feet, may struggle with the flagstone kitchen floor and steep, narrow stairs which are in keeping with the age of the property. There plenty of walks that can start from the cottage door and some pubs, small shops and a good restaurant close by for when you get back.

    Having rear private parking was important as Pooley Bridge was very busy during half-term. The cottage itself has many positives; the bed was very comfy, it has a lovely side garden, and the cottage is traditionally decorated without feeling old. The views over the field from the bedroom window were lovely to wake up to as well. There are plenty of walks to do and locations to visit on the doorstep, and even more if you’re willing to drive slightly further afield. We noticed in the guestbook that others had commented about there being no freezer in the kitchen; I agree this is an issue, especially as the fridge is also quite small. Also, whilst the large shower was lovely, not having a bath would be an issue for some and it did seem that with a different design the room would have accommodated a bath and shower. We had a really lovely weeks stays in the cottage, I’m a frequent visitor to the Lake District and can’t think of a better located self-catering option. I would certainly book the cottage again for future visits.

    Because this was our 4th visit we did not first read any reviews or descriptions. As well as being in a beautiful location, the cottage is a delight to stay in, being a wonderful base for splendid walks and a peaceful, cosy place to rest on returning. In our view it is the best place to stay in Cumbria. This was the first time we had to call the owner, Nick, as we managed to blow the circuit breaker. Even though he was out of the country, Nick responded very promptly and sorted things out - thanks again, Nick! Because of a commitment on Remembrance Sunday we had originally booked a short break at the cottage but after thinking about it we called Sykes and asked to change the booking to a full week so that we would not have to worry about our time of arrival. It was only later we realised that we had been charged more in total than we would have been had we booked a full week in the first place. I can understand an argument about administration charges but at a quiet time of the year, with such a simple change, it seems a bit of a shame that the opportunity was taken to charge extra.

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.
