Pooley Bridge is one of the most popular villages for those heading to the Lake District to explore Ullswater. The Thwaite family snapped up this traditional Cumbrian inn, recognising the superb location, and have transformed the 18th-century building. The newly refurbished Crown boasts contemporary bar areas, upholstered bench seating, plus a light and airy dining room extension with doors that lead to a fabulous sandstone terrace overlooking the River Eamont. For amazing Lake and fell views, climb the stairs to the upper terrace – the perfect place to relax with a pint and freshly cooked traditional pub meal from the crowd-pleasing menu. Upstairs, you’ll find 17 comfortable rooms across two floors; all are stylishly designed with a contemporary feel and smart tiled bathrooms.

About Inn Places
Not so long ago the thought of staying overnight in a pub would conjure up vivid images of cheaply furnished bedrooms, the smell of stale beer and bathrooms that had seen better days. How things have changed – now you can stay in luxurious rooms, full of home-from-home comforts, where children and dogs are welcomed too.
Recognising this growing trend of pubs with smart rooms and high quality food and drink has inspired industry expert, David Hancock to create InnPlaces.co.uk, a niche website that showcases a carefully curated collection of England and Wales’s most stylish pubs with rooms.
David, who previously edited Sawday Pubs & Inns and AA Room At The Inn, says: ‘I handpicked my personal favourites to launch www.InnPlaces.co.uk to ensure customers can find the best inns and pubs with rooms that England and Wales has to offer. Some are posh with boutique-style rooms while others ooze tradition and rustic country house charm. We look for rooms with a ‘wow’ factor that will draw guests back time and again, but mostly for a winning combination of wonderful food, real ales and wine, comfortable bedrooms, and a genuine welcome from hands-on owners. Also important are inventive menus that brim with local produce, enthusiastic staff and excellent housekeeping.”
However, Inn Places is so much more than just a collection of fabulous inns. Delve deeper into the website and alongside information on places to visit, local walks and independent shopping, you’ll find fascinating food trails that will give you a real flavour of the area you are visiting. Each trail showcases local artisan producers, micro-breweries and vineyards offering tours, quality farm shops and delis plus other good pubs and eateries within a 20-mile radius of the inn – everything you need to know to help you craft the perfect break away. w
