The property

A striking and beautifully-finished lakeside property found in the village of Pooley Bridge, Eusemere Lodge sits on the shores of Lake Ullswater and offers a truly exceptional Lake District holiday home. Eusemere lodge is nestled within its own private secluded grounds overlooking Ullswater and the River Eamont. Originally built in the 1890s, this remarkable holiday home has undergone extensions within the last 40-years, resulting in this elegant blend of traditional architecture, crossed with a contemporary style. Delighting in views across Ullswater to Helvelllyn and Striding Edge, some of the Lake District’s most well-known and popular climbs, this property will put you and your loved ones in the perfect position to discover the best of this national park. Beneath exposed, rustic beams in the sitting room, leather sofas and traditional furnishings create a homely space to unwind in, with the benefit of floor-length windows to let the light and the stunning outdoor scenery flood in. A classic AGA oil fired cooker rests within the large kitchen space, where a dining table offers the perfect breakfast spot, as well as a great range of excellent appliances to make use of, integrated into the charming cream units. Make use of the convenient utility room accessed through the kitchen, a great place to kick off your boots and dry your things after a rainy walk outside. Find the dining room to be well-suited to formal occasions and celebrations when you want the group to come together, featuring a beautiful curved window overlooking the garden, and an elegant chandelier. Be warmed within the peaceful conservatory and sun room, carefully built here to connect the main house to the remarkable extension. The stunning circular tower is home to one of the two king-size bedrooms with a lovely en-suite bathroom to service it, as well as a double bedroom here too. Travel up the stairs and be welcomed into an amazing snug room, where stylish seating has been placed to provide a quiet haven to retreat to away from the group as you admire the views out of the Juliet balcony. Settled within the original lodge building is a further king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room, along with two more double bedrooms, each wonderfully decorated and furnished to ensure you have a tranquil and elegant space to return to at the end of each exciting day. Spend time in the extensive garden which runs along Lake Ullswater, where you can enjoy a spot of fishing, run around with the children on the lawn, or sit at the raised decking with a refreshing drink and take in the setting. Dine out in the village of Pooley Bridge where a host of restaurants and pubs await you to try their delicious dishes, with The Crown Inn offering spectacular views of the river and lake from their open air terrace, whilst the town of Penrith also hosts a good selection. You're never far from a host of walking opportunities in the area; ramble up the nearby Askham Fell and Dunmallard Hill from the village or discover more around the Lake Ullswater, such as Little and Great Mell Fell. Take one of the Ullswater steamer boats to another lakeside village for a scenic journey along the waters, allowing you another incredible perspective of this beautiful area. For an unforgettable trip to the Lakes, choose Eusemere Lodge.

About the location


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.
