Details

This 18thC cottage was newly refurbished in 2008 yet retains its original charm and character, with beamed ceilings and feature stone walls. Windy Nook is situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Pooley Bridge, on the north eastern edge of Ullswater, one of the Lake Districts most attractive lakes, at the point where the River Eamont and Ullswater meet. The 16thC bridge over the Eamont gives the village its name and offers beautiful views of the lake and the neighbouring fells. The village and the surrounding area are also of historical interest. Dunmallard Hill, adjacent tot he village was the site of an Iron Age Fort and is one of a number of ancient sites dotted around the locality. The village has three good quality pubs which serve food together with tea rooms and a small number of shops providing essentials from groceries and out door equipment to souvenirs. The Ullswater steamers also depart from here providing trips along the seven mile lake to Howtown and Glenridding.

The area around the village abounds with stunningly beautiful walks of a variety of terrain and duration. Visitors can enjoy walks around Ullswater, the second largest lake in the Lake District National Park or through woodland or along the river. The dramatic waterfall, Air Force, is situated about half way along the lake between Pooley Bridge and Glenridding and for more challenging expeditions the lake is bordered by the mountain ranges of High Street and Helvellyn.

Penrith located at junction 40 of the M6, is approximately 5 miles from the village and is the nearest town providing access to a railway station, the local hospital as well as banks, shops and supermarkets. The market town of Keswick is also within easy travelling distance at approximately 20 miles from the village.
