  • "Mews Cottage is lovely accommodation."

    It is warm, clean and well equipped for self-catering. The decor reminds me of staying at a favourite Aunts' house! It is perfectly positioned for Pooley Bridge facilities, but far enough off the main road to be quiet and peaceful. Very convenient for lots of walks, Penrith and Keswick. There are good pubs, and restaurants two minutes away. Unfortunately the open fire was not available on our visit which was a disappointment. There was an electric fire in the hearth instead. We were anticipating a little open fire on the chilly evenings, but it was not to be. Also, on the Sykes listing it states space for two cars, this was not correct. It was not a problem, but an inaccurate description of the space available. Our stay was very restful, although the boiler firing up very noisily at 7.40 every morning proved an excellent alarm call! On the whole, a good stay in Pooley Bridge.

    It has everything you need, a fully equipped kitchen, sparkling shower, comfy sofa and garden table & chairs. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. We really appreciated the attention to detail, like the sewing kit and walking maps. We felt very welcome and comfortable. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. We had a great stay.

    The cottage was wonderful with lovely views from bedroom and a courtyard garden. We had perfect weather as well which was a bonus. No WiFi but we knew that and were able to pick up emails in the cafe/book store and restaurants.

    Well stocked kitchen with plenty of crockery, pans & cleaning products etc. Overall a nice cottage to stay in. It would benefit from a new bed. Very soft & squeaky double bed which didn't make for a great nights sleep. Ended up with one of us sleeping in the single bed. Adding Wi-Fi would make this a better cottage to stay in.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have replaced the bed and also installed WiFi to further enhance the cottage. Property Owner

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.
