We enjoyed our short but delightful stay with David and Angela at Ullswater House. They are very welcoming and full of helpful advice about where to eat and what to do. The house is very well decorated and furnished. Breakfast was fresh-cooked and very tasty. We found the bedroom very comfortable and the only downside was a bit of a... More

One of the best Bed and Breakfasts that my wife and I have stayed in. If you are looking for a place to stay in the north Ullswater area then look no further. It is ideally situated in the center of Pooley Bridge and withing walking distance of the 3 pubs. The Hosts are very friendly, the breakfasts are superb... More

It's such a pleasure to find a nice and quiet B&B with a lovely bed. In this case a pocket sprung super king with memory foam. Absolute bliss! Angela is a welcoming, helpful and charming host. Breakfast is as good as you might have hoped! As well as an excellent location for the Lakes, Pooley Bridge is nicely located for... More

Thank you for liking our beds! Like everything else we try to provide the best we can. Comfortable beds, quilts and pillows are just as important as clean towels, a good breakfast and a warm welcome.

Absolutely great. Rooms are spacious and bright. Breakfast was one of the best I've ever had. Angela could not have been more helpful; she provided loads of help from the initial booking and right throughout the stay. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area. Thanks Angela and David

Seven members of my family stayed here for two nights in order to go to a wedding. Angela and David were very welcoming and very kindly gave us a later breakfast time in order to survive the long wait before the Wedding dinner. The breakfast they provided was very substantial and delicious. The rooms are elegantly decorated, have comfortable beds... More

Breakfast was excellent. Angela was very helpful and the whole stay was very good. Pooley Bridge as everyone surely knows is a good place to stay. The pubs serve good food and great ale. We stayed as grandparents + Parents with a four year old. 3 generations - something for everyone was easily found.

We spent a week here recently and cannot rate it enough. Angela and David were extremely accommodating and helpful from providing us with vegan breakfast (including buying soya milk and vegan margarine which, trust me, is unheard of in the b&b industry) to giving us tips on places to visit and take photographs of. Nothing was ever too much bother... More
