    “The holiday was booked for 4 of us.”

    But unfortunately 1 of our group was ill and unable to join us. ...

    But unfortunately 1 of our group was ill and unable to join us. However we loved the house, truly luxurious in all the rooms. Beautiful views over Ullswater Lake. Everything had been thought of, from the comfortable sitting room to the massive kitchen, dining room with sofas. The bedrooms were very comfortable and we all slept well. The only noise was the gentle Baa’s from the sheep! We were out and about every day. Highlights were the afternoon on the Ullswater Steamer, very relaxing. Ambleside was a lovely town to go and visit. We so hope to meet up at the house again, great place to make lovely memories!

About the location


Pooley Bridge 2.5 miles; Glenridding 6.2 miles; Penrith 8.5 miles.

The elevated scattered village of Watermillock runs parallel to the main road alongside Ullswater Lake and is mainly a farming community. Just 2.5 miles away is Pooley Bridge with its array of amenities which sits on the northern shore of the lake in the Lake District National Park. The name Pooley originated due to the forming of a large pool, which was left by the fast flowing River Eamont. 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. Glenridding (meaning glen overgrown with bracken) is a small tourist village with a range of local shops, cafes and restaurants. 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. Watermillock is an ideal base for a cottage holiday stay in the stunning Lake District.
