“Perfect retreat, with a perfect view”
Reviewed 14 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Compact and bijou is probably an overworked cliché, however this rental is just that.
Of course it has some flaws but nothing that I need to mention, it would be churlish to mention them.
The bathroom...with a bath...is spacious, the bedroom isn't so 'roomy' but you go in you get in bed and you sleep and then you wake up get up and enjoy your breakfast looking over the valley with Ullswater beckoning below.
There are sufficient places to eat nearby but at any time of the year eating in and enjoying the view is a great option.
Close to Aira Force waterfall, Pooley Bridge and of course the water, you can walk the fells, paddleboard, take the steamer to Glenridding or just have afternoon tea and wander around the village...it's not huge...but it has charm.
I would return at the drop of a hat.

“Worth staying here just for the view of Ullswater”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This gets 4 stars because of the stunning view over Ullswater - which we suspect couldn't be better from anywhere else. The flat is fine, and generally comfortable and well equipped with everything you'd need.The bedroom is at the rear of the flat and very dark, and just on the edge of being a bit musty- but you can lie in bed and see the view. A summer weight (and non-allergenic) duvet would enhance it, as would a decent set of kitchen knives. Lots of interesting local historic houses and gardens kept us well- occupied, as did a trip on the Steamers on the Lake, and a walk around its shores. The theatre in Keswick was brilliant and there are lots of great places to eat. If you want a base for the North Eastern Lakes, and somewhere to sit and soak up the view, this is good place to come.

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 24 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The garden flat was an ideal base for exploring the lakes. The views were spectacular from the window and the flat had everything in it you might need. It was very peaceful but not too far from a village with pubs, cafes and small shops.

“Rural tranquillity”
Reviewed 5 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The location is stunning and the flat just lovely. We enjoyed the peace, quiet and wonderful views across the lake. Pooley bridge is a little rural village, but we were able to enjoy a drink in the pub and a good breakfast in the cafe. For anything else we needed to travel but the details of the booking made this expected. I believe there is a footpath to the village but we did not try this route. The written directions are essential as the sat nav take you to far up the hill. My lasting memory is sitting on the bench with a cup of tea in the manicured garden.
