Second stay at Ullswater House, just as good as the first! Angela and David represent the best in hospitality and nothing is too much trouble for them. The village pubs have changed a little since last September with the Crown now under new management and well worth a visit for both food and drink which wasn't the case previously. Look... More

Very friendly, clean, great breakfast! Maybe a bit too expensive... 85£ for a double room... Waterpressure of the shower is not that great, should be checked, certainly for the price you pay. The location is superb though! And the owners are very friendly! Loved the Black Pudding!

Stayed at this b&b and fondly remember the man of the house who was charming, his greetings to everyone were ace and always ended with "sparra". A local saying . Not sure if he is still the man of the house .. But the premises were spotlessly clean and the breakfast was superb. Made to feel like a family member...

We had such a lovely welcome at Ullswater House. The owners are great, and there were lots of little touches that made our stay great. They took our wet/dirty walking boots and dried them for us, they served hot drinks in the garden, and gave us lots of really useful information about the area.
