Good House Great Location
Left on 07/17/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Geoff & Pauline
The house is very comfortable with all the necessary requirements for a good holiday. The accommodation is clean and tidy and smartly furnished the on-suite showers were very good (very slight changes in temperature when someone else was using hot water). There is a wood burner in the large lounge (but no wood to put on it) the 3 off leather settees are comfortable and there is good reception on the freesat LCD TV.
Its location being a short walk to the picturesque village of Pooley Bridge with its access to lake Ullswater. There are 3 pubs in the villiage all serving food. Or of course you can use the facilities at Parkfoot holiday camp as you will be a member. The nearest takeaways being at Penrith some 15 minute car journey Ullswater steamers are approx. 5 minutes walk from Pooley Bridge (there is no parking at the steamer pier) Aria falls is a 10 minute drive away and is well worth a visit (especially after some rainfall) The scenery all across Cumbria is breathtaking with great towns and villages such as Windermere, Grasmere, Ambleside and Ravenglass to name a few.
The famous Settle to Carlyle line over the Ribblehead viaduct is easily accessed but if you wish to travel by steam train (Wednesdays Only) over this line then booking well in advance with Statesman rail is a must. Gretna Green and Carlyle are short drive away all in all a good house in a great location

We stayed in Elder Howe with a group of friends from our walking & social group. We were blessed with excellent weather for the most part (in spite of a slightly dodgy forecast for the week).
The area met all our needs, with easy access to some excellent walking routes, plenty things to do and interesting places to visit for days out.
Pooley Bridge itself, whilst small, has a variety of options for eating out if you don't want to self-cater every night. And Penrith, only a few minutes' pleasant drive, has everything from quaint cafes and small local shops (including an excellent deli), through to a large, modern Sainsbury's supermarket. The town itself is well worth spending at least half a day to explore.
The house has everything you could need for a group or family stay... Tv, DVD, adequate space indoors and in the garden. There is also the table-tennis in the "garage", which is good fun, even if the elbow room is a little restricted. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are of a decent size.
The only slight criticisms would be that (in my room at least) the mattress was a little thin and uncomfortable, and that whilst the two double rooms had en-suite bathrooms with excellent showers, there was only one bathroom for the occupants of the other three bedrooms to share. This isn't such a problem with family groups as with groups of adult friends, and we opted to make the en-suite bathrooms available to the others for showering after walks.
The staff at the holiday park (who look after the house) were very polite and professional, and they were extremely helpful at all times. They were more than happy to oblige when we asked if we could have an expensive croquet set delivered to the holiday park reception.
Thank you to all concerned for helping us to enjoy a very pleasant, stress free and relaxing break.

we booked elder howe for a family christmas, 6 adults 3 young children and a baby.The size of the front room and dinning table easily accomodated us all with the kids presents and christmas dinner. The village pub was very friendly where we had a very nice meal on christmas eve.Drives and walks around ullswater were very relaxing and enjoyable. The overall holiday was very memorable.

Everything about our weeks stay in Elder Howe was perfect except for the weather! It is situated close to all amenities. It is a huge house suitable for a big party, tastefully decorated and has everything in it that you need for an enjoyable holiday. Would definitely stay there again.

Fabulous location. So much to see and do. Close to the motorway to access the whole of Cumbria and the Yorkshire dales. Private garden. Clean and comfortable. Only complaint, couldn't get into the table tennis. Frustrating for the children. A guest book would have been nice. They are good for sharing information of favourite places to see.
Comfortable, well situated house for Lakes and pubs
Left on 05/24/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | Green family
Well maintained and comfortable house with 10 minute walk to Lake Ullswater, and five minute walk to village and 3 pubs. We had good weather so really enjoyed the time spent at the house and in the garden. Reasonable travelling distance to other lakes.
Perfect house, perfect location for northern lakes!

I cannot speak highly enough of this property - we will definitely be back!!! Not only was the house large - ample space for our family of four, plus friends with two children, it was immaculately clean, very comfortable (the sofas in particular were perfect after a day's fell walking) and beautifully positioned within walking distance of Pooley Bridge. The garden was large and enclosed and the kitchen overlooks this - perfect for keeping the kids occupied while you're cooking tea.
The only very minor negatives about the property was that the washing machine was a combined washer/dryer and therefore not very friendly if you just want to do a very quick wash - but it was nice just to be able to wash something none the less! Secondly, I think it should be noted a bit clearer on the property description that you need to collect the keys from a camping ground. My family and I are not campers (no offence to any campers out there) and we were a bit shell shocked when the sat nav directed us to a camping ground to collect the keys! The property is actually in the village of Pooley Bridge, but is managed by the camp ground - I think this should just be made a bit clearer.
Two very minor criticisms on an otherwise fabulous holiday!

Great modern house, very close to the centre of the lovely little village of Pooley Bridge. The property is spacious and everything was clean and new. It was a real treat to stay there. Very good facilities within the property and large enclosed garden to the rear of the property. The staff at the holiday park were very helpful with any enquiries or problems. Lovely walks along the lake and super little shops/ family friendly pubs doing good food are only 2 minutes walk away. Will definitely return another time.
