Pooley Bridge's Favourite Hotel

The Village of Pooley Bridge

Pooley Bridge straddles the River Eamont at the head of Ullswater in the picturesque Eden Valley. The town’s two wide main streets are lined with greystone houses and a number of teashops, all overlooking the lake.

A popular way to explore the area is to take a boat from Pooley Bridge, leave the boat at Howtown, and then walk to Glenridding and catch the boat back to Pooley Bridge. This was one of Wordsworth’s favourite walks and offers views of the lake and Helvellyn.

Local attractions include Ullswater (of course), Lowther Castle & Gardens, and Moor Divock. Moor Divock is 300 metres above sea level, forming part of Askham Fell, to the East of Ullswater. Dotted around the moor are many cairns and burial mounds, the most conspicuous being White Raise, near the junction of the trackway over the moor, and the path to Askham.

The Cockpit is by far the largest and most impressive of the Moor Divock circles, is about 1km to the west of the two smaller circles. It is likely that the stone circles and burial mounds belong to the bronze age. The cockpit consists of a low penannular bank of stones, 3 metres wide, and with an internal diameter of about 26m. Set into the bank are many large stones, the tallest of which form the inner face of the circle, some reaching up to 1 metre high.

The name Pooley Bridge derives from a large pool in the River Eamont,”The Hill by the Pool”. The ‘Bridge’ part of the name was added in 1800.

The church of St. Paul’s can be found in the centre of the village and dates from around 1868. Opposite the church is a row of very old houses, one of which was a blacksmith’s.

A 16th century bridge was built across the River Eamont, which flows from Ullswater to Eamont Bridge, and on to the River Eden, near Langwathby.
