“Fantastic Cottage, well equipped - perfect for families”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2013

Stayed here in august 2013. This is a very well equipped cottage, ideal for families with children. Located close to the village, plenty of parking and a garden big enough for kids to run off energy. The property is spacious, well designed and has everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday.

“Good House Great Location”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2013

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

“Excellent family accommodation”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2013

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.

On the whole a nice property, but lacked cleaning materials and could have done with a BBQ.
