    “Spacious flat ideal for extended family.”

    Roomy kitchen diner, two bathrooms very useful. Cosy, comfortable and quiet. No garden but not needed at this time of year. Parking a little way down the road but could drop off or pick up nearby if not too many other visitors filling the roadside. Village shop very close, very tempting bookshop with teas below flat.

The property

Idyllically positioned above a quaint bookshop, in the heart of the rural village of Pooley Bridge, rests this delightful three-bedroom apartment, Paperback Writer. Enjoying close proximity to the glistening waters of Ullswater and nestled amongst the spectacular landscape of the Lake District National Park, Paperback Writer is an excellent base for a small family or group of friends seeking an outdoor adventure. Kick off your boots and freshen up your walking attire in the handy washer/dryer as you step inside your new home-from-home, making yourself at home with a sumptuous seat in front of the television following an adventure-filled day. Uncork a bottle of wine and indulge in a well deserved drink with a seat at the elegant breakfast bar, while the designated chef utilizes the fantastic range of amenities provided to rustle up a hearty meal. Recount the day's adventures as you tuck-in with your loved ones before moving through the property to pour in the bubbles and indulge in a blissful soak in the bathroom with a good book in hand. When sleep calls, catch your rest in one of three well-presented bedrooms, with a super-king-size benefiting from it's own en-suite, a double bedroom (with zip/link feature) and a bunk room with a double bed and single over. This third bedroom is ideal for teenagers/children, due to the beds being 190cm in length it may be unsuitable for adults. Take a break from doing the cooking and choose to dine-out at one of the many delicious eateries resting on your doorstep; fuel the day's excursions with a hearty breakfast at Granny Dowbekins Tearooms, or end an adventure-filled day with a crisp pint of real ale at the Crown Inn. Avid historians will delight in a visit to the nearby town of Penrith where tourists can step back in time with a tour of the Penrith and Eden Museum, or explore the 14th-century ruins of Penrith Castle, once home to Richard III. Spend lazy afternoons strolling along the banks of the River Eamont towards the glistening waters of lake Ullswater, where thrill-seekers can embark on a watersport adventure with expert tuition available at Ullswater Wake and Surf, or for a more peaceful experience, hire a boat and enjoy a solace float as you watch the world go by. Catch the Ullswater Steamer and cruise across the lake to the former mining village of Glenridding, popular with hikers looking to reach the summit of Helvellyn, the third-highest peak in England. Embark on a Cumbrian adventure with a memorable retreat to Paperback Writer.

About the location

POOLEY BRIDGE

Penrith 6 miles.

The picturesque village of Pooley Bridge sits on the northerly edge of Lake Ullswater in the Lake District National Park. The name Pooley came to be due to the forming of a large pool, which was left by the fast flowing River Eamont, and the word Bridge was later added when a bridge, which is now 250 years old, was built over the river. Pooley Bridge has many traditional inns and tempting tea rooms, plus the Ullswater Steamers depart from the village, from where a tranquil cruise down the lake to the villages of Glenridding and Howtown can be enjoyed. There are numerous walks with breathtaking views nearby, plus a short walk up to Dunmallard Hill reveals fascinating Iron-Age remains, whilst the towns of Penrith and Keswick are within driving distance. Pooley Bridge is an ideal base for a cottage holiday stay in the stunning Lake District.
