It started off well. An idyllic location on the shore of Ullswater; a porter bounding out of the front door to help with the luggage; a pleasant greeting from the receptionist. But boy was the hotel room warm - although not quite as warm as the landing area you had to walk through. Internet access through the wifi was very... More

This Hotel has a beautifull setting close to the lake and the grounds are well kept and manicured. As in most old houses of this vintage it boasts large reception rooms and is furnished in a comfortable style. The bedroom was completely satisfactory, clean ,with a modern bathroom. No complaints in this. The staff were welcoming and friendly without being... More

Rampsbeck is in a lovely setting with delightful gardens on the West shore of Ullswater, You can catch the steamer about two miles away at Pooley Bridge for an hour’s journey to the far end of the lake. The turn down to the hotel... More

Really hard to find a better English country house hotel. Formal and informal gardens, top class food, helpful and friendly staff, dog friendly, extensive grounds. Well worth an extended stop or a base for a Lake DIstrict holiday

We made the mistake of attempting to travel from the far West Country to the Penrith area in one go. We did it after the best part of 9 hours and a number of stops but that's another story. Arriving at our two night stop over in Watermillock was simply magical. Moments from the M6 (well, alright, about 5 miles)... More

Rampsbeck really did live up to previous good reviews. Could not fault views, location, grounds, public rooms, attentive & efficient staff in all areas. The hotel looks 'cared for' and attention to detail is evident everywhere. Every amenity provided in rooms even face cloths (don't often see these in UK hotels) and a full evening housekeeping service. We stayed in... More
