The cottage is located in the pretty village of Pooley Bridge, which sits on the River Eamont and beautiful Ullswater, and there are many country pubs serving good food and local beer nearby. If you want to get out and explore the fells, or you are a keen cyclist or water sports enthusiast, then this is the perfect spot for you! Take a boat from the village to Howtown where you can walk to Glenridding and catch the boat back to Pooley Bridge. This was one of Wordsworth's favourite walks and offers views of Ullswater and Helvellyn. Moor Divock has pre-historic remains and a standing stone and stone circle to admire, or enjoy a day at Dalemain Mansion and Historic Gardens. Aira Force Waterfall is also just 6 miles away, set amongst ancient woodland and landscaped glades.

This pretty cottage has been lovingly restored. As you walk into the open-plan ground floor you will find the lounge with a cosy wood burner, comfy seating, Smart TV and a small office area. The sandstone flooring which runs throughout the ground floor is stunning along with the feature beams. There is a spacious kitchen with an electric range-style oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, coffee machine and microwave. Opposite the kitchen is the dining table, a great place to catch up with friends and family. There is also a useful utility/coat/boot room off the kitchen where you will find a washing machine and tumble dryer - it offers plenty of space for your dog’s bed and access out to the enclosed garden. Heading up the sandstone staircase, you will find three beautifully styled contemporary bedrooms, two doubles and one king-size, all are en-suite with a shower and WC. The bedroom to the rear of the property, overlooking the garden, has a floor-to-ceiling glass window in the en-suite bathroom which features one-way glass so you can shower while enjoying the countryside without worrying about your privacy! The pretty double bedroom has an original feature fireplace and a family bathroom next door with a stunning freestanding bath, handheld shower and WC.

There is a lovely, enclosed south-facing garden with views over the fields, it is a lovely spot to sit out on a summer’s evening, read a good book and enjoy a glass of wine. There is private parking for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
