    “The view is Magnificent but forget about the rest.”

    No privacy. Bedroom has no windows. Shower not working. Hot water system not good. Bath and shower situated in bedroom sunken bath not easy to get in and out. KItchen Area very good.

    Thank you for your kind comments regarding the view and the kitchen in the apartment. If I could please ask you why "no privacy" the extent of the garden and the woodland down to the lake covers 2 acres and is very private, the only thing I can think of is my gardener working in the garden which is necessary for the upkeep. I do hope he did not disturb you most people comment on his friendliness and politeness The bedroom does not have windows but has borrowed light from a skylight above the entrance to the bedroom, the bath and shower are ensuite. I always leave a help list in the apartment and invite guests with any problems or need anything to contact me. No mention of the shower. The hot water is heated by an immersion heater,it is either on or off I have tested and it is fine. I did find you had the central heating on at 29 degrees which is exsorbitant, especially taking into consideration the price. I hope I have managed to explain some of the issues you raised.

About the location


Pooley Bridge 2.5 miles; Glenridding 6.2 miles; Penrith 8.5 miles.

The elevated scattered village of Watermillock runs parallel to the main road alongside Ullswater Lake and is mainly a farming community. Just 2.5 miles away is Pooley Bridge with its array of amenities which sits on the northern shore of the lake in the Lake District National Park. The name Pooley originated due to the forming of a large pool, which was left by the fast flowing River Eamont. 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. Glenridding (meaning glen overgrown with bracken) is a small tourist village with a range of local shops, cafes and restaurants. 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. Watermillock is an ideal base for a cottage holiday stay in the stunning Lake District.
