The Lodge

Just south of Pooley Bridge on the Ullswaters lake’s eastern shore is Eusemere House and Lodge, where anti-slavery campaigner Thomas Clarkson (1760–1846) lived; the house gives one of the best views of the lower reach of Ullswater. William and Dorothy Wordsworth were friends of Clarkson and visited the house and lodge on many occasions. After visiting Clarkson in April 1802, Wordsworth was inspired to write his famous poem Daffodils after seeing daffodils growing on the shores of Ullswater on his journey back to Grasmere.


The Landscape

Ullswater is the second largest lake in the English Lake District, being about nine miles (14.5 km) long and 0.75 miles (1.2 km) wide, with a maximum depth a little more than 60 metres (197 ft). Ullswater’s visitor centre website describes it as the most beautiful of England’s lakes; it has been compared to Lake Lucerne in Switzerland as a tourist destination.
