Pooley Bridge cottages
At the head of Ullswater in the picturesque Eden Valley is Pooley Bridge, a quaint Cumbrian town that straddles the River Eamont. A magnet for holidaymakers, the town has two main high streets lined with teashops and boutiques, all overlooking the lake. A great way to explore this area is on the water by taking a boat from Pooley Bridge, leaving the boat at Howtown, walking the Glenridding, and then boat back to the start. This was one of Wordworth's favourite walks and offers breathtaking views of the lake and Helvellyn. The low-rolling fells and moorland offer some fantastic walking opportunities, for all abilities. Many of our Pooley Bridge cottages are dog-friendly, so all members of the family can enjoy the great outdoors.
