The garden flat was an ideal base for exploring the lakes. The views were spectacular from the window and the flat had everything in it you might need. It was very peaceful but not too far from a village with pubs, cafes and small shops.
The location is stunning and the flat just lovely. We enjoyed the peace, quiet and wonderful views across the lake. Pooley bridge is a little rural village, but we were able to enjoy a drink in the pub and a good breakfast in the cafe. For anything else we needed to travel but the details of the booking made this expected. I believe there is a footpath to the village but we did not try this route. The written directions are essential as the sat nav take you to far up the hill. My lasting memory is sitting on the bench with a cup of tea in the manicured garden.
The location of the Flat was just brilliant .
We toured round the Lakes for the break and the flat was the ideal base for our break away.
After a long journey, we arrived at the "garden flat" and we were instantly amazed at the beautiful setting. We took a few minutes to soak up the views before opening the door. The flat was bijou but fully equipped with everything you need. Kitchen had more utensils than we have at home. Shower over bath worked well, bathroom has underfloor heating and heated towel rails. Bedroom was compact with enough storage, bed was comfy and you could see that wonderful view to the lake from your bed when the door was open. Lounge area has to be the best, sitting in the window just watching the mountains and lake change colour with the weather. Wow!
The flat was half mile walk to the nearest pub, the brackenrigg. We ate there for 2 nights and food was lovely.
We walked from Pooley bridge to howtown, a very easy 6.7 miles. Walked to Aira force, lovely waterfall, then to glen ridding. Lots of walking and the garden flat was a welcome treat to return to each evening. Thank you Sheila, for sharing the perfect, romantic setting with us. We will definitely return.
Really nice flat, very clean and cosy, great for walks and drives in the area and very helpful owner. Almost perfect, except for the neighbours knocking out the wifi for half our stay.

Great appartment with stunning view over Ullswater. Ullswater is a good base from which to explore the Lake District. We enjoyed our stay here. The bed was a bit too soft for us and the blanket too thick and warm for the summer. But that did not prevent us from having a wonderful stay at the Garden Flat.
