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

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.

I was attending/observing an Outward Bounds course nearby and needed somewhere to stay - Having read some of the other reviews I decided on Ullswater House. On arrival I was met by Angela and she showed me to my room. Room 1 is a great room for the single traveller and has a very comfortable bed with crisp linen and... More

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

This review is even more pleasing because we were both somewhat under the weather during your stay. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and in particular were pleased with the service we provide. We are more than happy to cater for anyone's diet requirements during their stay as long as we know in advance. We find the best thing... More

We cannot fault the Ullswater Guest House, a lovely welcome, great facilities, very clean and comfortable and we felt able to ask for anything we needed without ever feeling 'watched over'. Topped off by a fantastic breakfast and a thoughtful touch for us celebrating our wedding anniversary we would definitely recommend to all.
