Our Inspector's view
The Crown Inn is part of The House of Daniel Thwaites. Set by the river in the busy, seasonally popular village of Pooley Bridge at the head of Ullswater, it has beautiful views and easy access to the lakes and transport links. The extensive bar and restaurant space includes a first-floor terrace and bi-fold doors that lead onto a patio and the river. Local and guest ales are on tap at all times and a solid pub menu is on offer. Bedrooms are smart and contemporary. The Crown Inn, Pooley Bridge is open for business; bridge improvement work is due to start in September 2019 and we'll add further updates as the project happens.

About the area
Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.
Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
