My son (7) also felt really at home here. There were really nice touches too like refreshments, magazines and books... More

We had a wonderful stay here. The room was extremely comfortable with everything you could ask for, clean and with excellent facilities. Our hosts were really accommodating, friendly and keen to make us feel at home. Great breakfasts and all freshly cooked from local produce; and catered for our dietary requirements. As I say couldn't ask for more!

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!
