Lamb Corner House is an exceptionally well appointed cottage sleeping up to six people in three luxurious bedrooms in the heart of the historic Lakeland village of Pooley Bridge on the northern shores of Ullswater. The house is surrounded by fields on three sides with wonderful views from all of the windows. It has been completely refurbished by the owners making it a welcoming and indulgent place to spend your holiday. Visitors will find countless thoughtful touches including bespoke mirrors, a fabulous oak kitchen with Neff appliances and granite worktops, a sumptuous leather sofa, showers with drencher heads, deep mattresses and Cole and Lewis toiletries. The fabulous raised deck with built-in barbecue has stunning views of the surrounding fells and fields where you will see plenty of lambs in springtime when the house really lives up to its name!
Nestled on the banks of the River Eamont as it flows out of the northern end of Ullswater, Pooley Bridge is a special village with an atmosphere all of its own. In the village centre the Fish Cross commemorates a charter granted by King John in the 12th century. It is a bustling place with pubs, tearooms, village shop, post office, an off licence selling speciality groceries, a Steamer pier, rowing and motor boat hire, pony trekking and countless walks and cycle rides to enjoy. Ullswater itself is widely thought of as one of the most picturesque of the lakes in the National Park. In fact William Wordsworth went so far to describe it as: ‘the happiest combination of beauty and grandeur, which any of the lakes affords.’ He found inspiration from its shores to write his most famous work; Daffodils. Lamb Corner House is perfectly placed in Pooley Bridge for it just to be a short stroll to all of its delights while having stunning wide open views of fields and fells.
There are a wealth of walks to explore from gentle lakeside ambles to more challenging Lakeland giants such as Helvellyn. Added to this you can catch one of the wonderful Ullswater Steamers at Pooley Bridge Pier opening up a vast choice of linear walks and cycle rides. Why not take one of these elegant heritage vessels to Aira Force Pier and take in the gorgeous riverside amble up through enchanting woodland to the stupendous sight of the waterfall cascading 70ft down a rocky ravine? The village is perfectly placed to explore the wider area too including the historic delights of Dalemain, a stately home with glorious gardens and a fascinating past. Nearby visitor centre Rheged is an award winning visitor attraction boasting a spa, shops, local art, an artisan deli and a gigantic 3D cinema. In short if you are looking for an indulgent place to stay with everything that's delightful about the northern Lake District right on your doorstep then Lamb Corner House could be just the cottage you're looking for.
