    Overall, the accommodation is of a very high standard. However, a few things need to be improved: 1) Some kitchen equipment is lacking, e.g. no large frying pan (even though this cottage accommodates 8 people), the wok needs replacing, some pan handles were worryingly loose, and a large lidded saute pan would be very useful. 2) Most tumblers provided in the kitchen are a horrible green plastic. Please could we have glassware? 3) In one of the main bedrooms, the light in the en-suite didn't work and the mirror looks like it could fall off at any moment. Having said all this, we would happily stay here again - it is a lovely spacious house in a great location.

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.
