Townhead Farmhouse description

Holiday home
Townhead Farmhouse is a character, semi-detached cottage situated five miles from the village of Pooley Bridge. The cottage sleeps six people and has one double bedroom, one twin and two singles, together with a bathroom. Also in the cottage are a fitted kitchen with small dining area, dining room with woodburner and sitting room with woodburner. Outside is off road parking for 2 cars and a lawned garden with furniture. Situated in the Lake District National Park, Townhead Farmhouse is a lovely family holiday cottage all year round.

The picturesque village of Pooley Bridge sits on the northerly edge of Lake Ullswater in the Lake District National Park. The name Pooley came to be due to the forming of a large pool, which was left by the fast flowing River Eamont, and the word Bridge was later added when a bridge, which is now 250 years old, was built over the river. Pooley Bridge has many traditional inns and tempting tea rooms, plus the Ullswater Steamers depart from the village, from where a tranquil cruise down the lake to the villages of Glenridding and Howtown can be enjoyed.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
