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.

Friendly, helpful hosts, especially when it comes to parking - thanks Angela and David. Nice cosy accommodation, with great breakfast - excellent fuel for our cycling trip. Great location in Pooley Bridge.

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...

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.

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.

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
