LATEST NEWS FROM THE SUN INN POOLEY BRIDGE
Spotlessley clean, warm and homely
Just back from and weekend break in the lovely Pooley Bridge by Ullswater. My wife and I enjoyed a very warm welcome and were shown to our immaculately clean double room. Comfy bed, large shower and plenty of space. Breakfast was delicious and we stayed for an evening meal, which was also excellent. We will definitely be visiting again.
Best in Town!
We were lucky enough to get a twin room here for the long weekend just past and it was a great stay. They really bent over backwards to accommodate us and the staff were helpful the whole time and the pub downstairs was great too! The food in the pub is the best in town.
Accommodating in every way
We have just spent a week staying at this hotel whilst sailing and walking in the area. We had a thoroughly good time staying and eating at this hotel and recommend it to others. The staff are friendly and helpful. They accommodated my gluten free diet in their stride and even cooked stuff specially for me so I could have a larger choice off their menu.
The Lake District's Pooley Bridge
Our spectacular setting is in the heart of the Lake District. Pooley Bridge is located by the River Eamont at the northern end of Lake Ullswater. 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 1800Image Gallery
