The cottage is very accessible being close to the A66 and once there we parked car in the village and started all our walks from the cottage. A 3 mile walk into Pooley Bridge meant we could extend our hikes out making use of the lake steamer service, perfect. The only trip out in the car was for provisions from near by shops. The cottage is packed with character, cosy, well equipped and clean. The log fire turned out to be a real bonus after a long walk on what turned into a very wet June day! Prior to the visit communication with owner was excellent and very helpful. We would definitely return in the future.
