In the heart of a picturesque and welcoming village, this charming 17th century cottage sits tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and enjoying lovely far reaching rural views to the rear. Straddling the River Eamont at the head of Lake Ullswater, Pooley Bridge is graced by its 16th century bridge and two wide main streets, lined with quaint gift shops, tea rooms and visitor services, which overlook the water sports activity on the lake. With Penrith (5 miles), Keswick and Lake Windermere all in easy reach, Finkle Cottage makes an ideal base for exploring the delights of the Lake District National Park.
