  • "This is a fantastic property."

    Very central with parking on the drive. The sofa is incredibly comfy and the wood burning stove made the place really cosy. We enjoyed going for walks and also had some great food. Penrith is just a short drive away with a great selection of shops. Cranston’s has a great food hall and is well worth a visit. The kitchen is really well equipped and it was fantastic to source local products and cook. Great shower and bedrooms a good size with loads of storage. We found washing dried quickly on the clothes maiden due to the underfloor heating.

  • "Woodview is a gorgeous property, the gated driveway made us feel secure once in for the evening."

    Great access into Pooley Bridge and Ullswater. Would recommend. Kitchen was well stocked, good cooking equipment. Only issue for us was lack of kitchen storage space. We like to cook each night and lots of our shopping stayed in bags until needed.

    Thanks for the feedback, pleased you had a great time. We will look into how we could create more cupboard space. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Woodview, it's a great base for exploring without the car and handy for the A66 for going further afield."

    The 508 bus to Windermere over Kirkstone Pass is memorable. The Ullswater 'Steamer' is just a short stoll away and is well worth doing. The views from up on the Roman Road are stunning. We would be happy to return.

    Many thanks for your feedback, you have certainly been exploring the area ! Pleased you had a great time Property Owner

  • "2nd visit: fantastic property and location."

    Only negative (and this I guess is an agent requirement not a reflection on the property), check out time 9.00 is slightly early and ironic given the guidence to respect the neighbouring property etc. Despite this will be back again soon .

    Thank you for your valuable feedback, checkout has been changed to 10 am. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Woodview. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location."

    Very clean and everything we needed was provided. The cottage had a very cosy feel and felt like a home from home. Would like more instructions for the heating as it took us a while to work out. Toilet seat was broken before we arrived although the owners did attempt to arrange to come to fix it mid week. Otherwise a perfect stay and we will be back!

  • "Woodview is a lovely holiday let."

    It is warm and comfortable with modern facilities. The living area is perfect for two people, with an excellent log burner. The kitchen area is good for self catering, although we found having just two saucepans a little limiting. Also lack of a potato masher!!! The appliances are easy to use with a folder of manuals to assist. The bedrooms are spacious and beds comfortable, with quality bed linen. The bathroom was ok. A broken toilet seat and a well used shower was a little less than perfect, but it was manageable. I think the grouting in the shower needed a little attention, but it is a bug bear of mine! The location of the bungalow is exceptional. A stride from the main street, with all the facilities there, but very quiet and undisturbed. Penrith and Keswick only short drives away, and the Ullswater Steamer a short walk away. Lowther Castle and Dalemain House are close and well worth a visit. It is well positioned for the walkers as well as those just needing to relax. We had a good week in Woodview, and would book again.

    Dear Peter, Many thanks for your detailed feedback. We will look into all the points you have brought to our attention as soon as possible. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    Also there was a distinct lack of information on recycling - we took our glass bottles home with us (unless of course Cumbria does not recycle)

    The bungalow is wonderful with everything we needed for a holiday stay. It was exactly what we were looking for - a home away from home within walking distance to the lake and the pubs and with parking. We will definitely be keen to come back again soon.

  • "Wonderful property, well thought out space and facilities."

    Great location. Small niggle is that the garden is all paved or gravel, which we understand is low maintenance, but wouldn't be too friendly to small children's hands and knees - however not an issue for us and we will likely book this property again.

    Recently updated to a very high standard. Children enjoyed the comfortable sofa and large TV! We enjoyed looking at the map on the wall whilst having tea to see where we'd walked and plan the next day's trips. Both front and back gardens lovely and sunny just a shame there's not more greenery. Would definitely return. Lovely touch of wine and chocolate on arrival.

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.
