This is a bit of a mea culpa, as we stayed here for one night at the end of July after a tour around Scotland and Cumbria - what makes this one a bit of a standout is the friendly hosts who not only made us feel very welcome on what was a wet and unpleasant day but even lent... More

We had never been to Pooley Bridge before and found Elm House easily from Penrith. We had no problem parking in the bays provided alongside the building and we were given a friendly welcome and shown to our room. This was spotless. As others have noted, there was a lot of attention to detail. The bed was large and very... More

The owners told us that they are shutting next week to do a refurb, extend and add a restaurant and bar, this sounds... More

Great night in Pooley Bridge made better by our B&B at the end of the night. Lovely friendly staff in a clean tidy bedroom lovely king-sized fluffy bed as well. The breakfast was great it was a great way to start the day. Overall it was a good B&B and at a very fair price.

We arrived late and tired after a long journey to be met with a friendly welcome from Mark and shown to our room. The room was lovely - clean, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. As our window overlooked the road, we wondered if we'd be bothered by noise, but it wasn't a problem - in fact it was extremely quiet... More

Stayed one night en route to Scotland. Our room was small but very comfortable, well furnished with lots of nice touches including a teddy bear. Very good ensuite shower with nice toiletries. Lovely breakfast, good choice and generous portions, had the kippers with a poached egg. Friendly welcome. Would definitely return.

Thanks Anne for your warm hospitality. We has two lovely nights staying in your family room. Kids were thrilled having their movie time in their room and great choice at breakfast. We still missed your breakfast.
