This is an iconic location and 'must' photograph for many photographers / tourists visiting the Lake District.

Photography Tips

A tripod, ND filters (for long exposures), poloriser and cable release.

This location can be shot at any time of day but is particularly appealing on misty mornings and at sunset, as you are facing a westerly direction.

Travel Information

Use postcode CA11 0LL for a large pay and display car park, or park in one of the many pay and display areas in the town of Pooley Bridge.

Walk west along the footpath beside the B5320 until the path stops. Continue along the road, or alternatively walk in the woodland to your left beside the lake (this is however private land and therefore permission from the land owner should be sought prior to gaining access). Caution should be taken if you choose to continue along the road, which is windy with cars travelling fast in both directions.

The boat house is visible from the roadside after about a 5 - 8 minute walk from the pay and display car park.

Please note that to gain the best (and safest images) it is necessary to climb down a small wall into the lake side. Therefore wellies are a must.
