About Pooley Bridge

A delightful village on the northern edge of Ullswater, there is a pier and ferry from here to Glenridding and Howtown. The latter is a delightfully quiet spot boasting a hotel which harks back to a bygone pre-war era, when folk smartened up for dinner, took a snifter in the cocktail lounge while waiting for the gong to sound for dinner.

Pooley Bridge has a couple of decent pubs serving decent pub food.
