Pooley Bridge Farmers' Market
is held on the last Sunday of the months
THE FUTURE OF POOLEY BRIDGE FARMERS' MARKET IS UNCERTAIN DUE TO VENUE PROBLEMS...
PLEASE WATCH THIS SPACE FOR DEVELOPMENTS
Held on the village hall car park the FARMERS MARKET is ideally situated for walkers, visitors driving through and cyclists alike.
The FARMERS MARKET is clearly signposted once in the village.
Pooley Bridge is a stunning little lakeland village positioned at the Northeastern end of lake Ullswater.
The village is built around a 16th century stone bridge which crosses the river Eamont and was once a very important market town for the region. In modern times the village is a major tourist attraction and is the main camping region for this part of the lakes in easy reach of Keswick and Ambleside.
Pleasure ferries operate on the lake at regular times in the summer months where you can experience the feel of old day steamers.
The water is home to some good shoals of fish including trout and the very rare vendace along with several other coarse fish species.
To the north of the village is Dunmallard Hill where the remains of an iron-age fort can be found and stunning views over the lake and village can be seen from.
The village has a few campsites around its surrounding hills and a couple of very nice inns and hotels which can be found on the campsite and inns pages of Pooley Bridge Online.
