Just back from an excellent weekend stay at Ullswater House. This is the most comfortable, clean and welcoming guesthouse I have stayed in. Our room was beautiful, very tastefully decorated,and had the most enormous comfortable bed. The ensuite was spotless and had lovely complimentary toiletries and thick fluffy towels. The tea and coffee tray in the room was so much... More

Right in the centre of Pooley Bridge with adequate parking. As B/Bs go, this was first class. We had a good room and an excellent breakfast. The place was immaculate throughout. Would certainly recommend. The owners were friendly and helpful without being too intrusive. Breakfast room was small but had enough space around tables.

Thank you for this review. I am glad you enjoyed your overnight stay with us and were pleased with the facilities and service we offer. I am afraid there isn't much we can do about the breakfast room for the time being. We are thinking of adding a conservatory type extension which would increase the space and double up as... More

This is a lovely B&B right in the centre of Pooley Bridge, so it is close to the shops, pubs, and Ullswater Lake. This B&B has its own parking. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I took my mum to visit family for a couple of days and my mum is disabled because she struggles with walking. The room... More

Genuinely friendly owners. Wonderful breakfast with the most beautiful Cumberland sausages. Comfy and spacious room with luxury toiletries. Everything we needed was provided.

Warm, friendly, helpful hosts who were so interested in all we did. We stayed for a week and enjoyed great breakfasts, very comfortable beds and fluffy towels. The selection of items in the welcome tray in the room was superb and we felt very much at home.

The grounds of this bed and breakfast are everything that was promised: clean, tidy and efficient. It was perhaps lacking the charm of other inns in the area, but if you prefer modern amenities to historical essence, you will likely appreciate this B&B over others in Pooley Bridge. We were impressed with the selection of coffees, teas and biscuits in... More

We stayed for one night (probably one of the busiest nights of the year in Pooley Bridge, it was the boat race). We received a really warm welcome and were advised to book a table at a nearby restaurant as soon as possible as it would soon get booked up. Good advice! The room was lovely if a little small...
