    If you can stay here, you should. Chances are it won't be available. Thats not just your bad luck, its because its that good. Be good to yourself, plan ahead. Book. Wait. The views across the lake are staggering. Its a short wander to the steamer. The Hot Tub is probably the best positioned in the Lakes. Watch the sun set from its comfort. Then settle back and watch a film on the huge 3D TV and turn the lighting to "cinema" with the cinema surround sound providing the atmosphere. It really is that good.

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.
