    “Cozy Hideaway”
    Perfectly located for walkers and hikers. Several pubs and restaurants all a short walk away. Cottage is set back from the road overlooking a tranquil field filled with grazing sheep. A must do is the boat ride up to Glenridding with a stop in for lunch at the Inn on the Lake. Cottage is well stocked. Only negatives were no laundry facility and lack of a shower. Cottage could use a bit of updating, and no wifi is available unless you go across the road to the pub ...
    Perfectly located for walkers and hikers. Several pubs and restaurants all a short walk away. Cottage is set back from the road overlooking a tranquil field filled with grazing sheep. A must do is the boat ride up to Glenridding with a stop in for lunch at the Inn on the Lake. Cottage is well stocked. Only negatives were no laundry facility and lack of a shower. Cottage could use a bit of updating, and no wifi is available unless you go across the road to the pub. Only reason we would not return is that the Lake District was not really to our liking, but others may find it perfect.

The property

A perfect holiday cottage with a secluded walled garden in Pooley Bridge on the edge of Ullswater, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District, within walking distance of the village pubs and shops.

This charming Ullswater cottage has two bedrooms, with lovely views from the double room over the fields to the Lakeland fells beyond.

The spacious kitchen of this Ullswater cottage is well equipped and has lovely farmhouse-style touches.

The cosy sitting room has a door leading out to the pretty cottage-style garden, where guests at this Pooley Bridge cottage can enjoy the sunshine whilst planning their day's activities.

The sitting room also offers a warming open fire to enjoy on a cool evening.

Situated in the midst of the village of Pooley Bridge, guests can walk down to the lake shore and enjoy the magnificent views down the lake.

The Ullswater Steamer departs from the head of the lake, cruising down Ullswater to Glenridding.

There are also beautiful and romantic walks available from the doorstep, and for the more adventurous, there is always the notorious Striding Edge and Helvellyn!

Driving down the valley alongside the lake takes you through Watermillock and Patterdale on to the Kirkstone Pass, the gateway into Ambleside and Windermere.

With spectacular views in every direction, this cosy Pooley Bridge cottage is perfect 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.
