  • "We enjoyed our stay but the cottage is in need of some improvement/maintenance."

    Hot water was not available all the time, maybe something is wrong with the timer. Cooker is rather old needs replacing. Other minor gripes & niggles. Needs some updating. Overall it was comfortable and spacious for the four of us.

  • "The cottage is in a good location for access to the rest of the Lake District."

    It is also surprisingly quiet considering it is on the main street of Pooley Bridge. This was not clear from the information about the cottage which seemed to suggest that it was within the Holiday Park. Facilities and accommodation are good but the kitchen carpet is in need of replacement to perhaps laminate flooring which would be easier to keep clean. The large garden was a bonus and we used this a lot. Ideal location for a week in the Lake District Thank you

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.
