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 stayed here for one night only, a Wednesday and we had a great stay. We were met at the door by Angela who gave us a big friendly welcome. Angela showed us to our room and filled us in on all the local information like what each pub is like, where the good food is served and where to... 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.

We have just had a 2 night break at Ullswater House. Thank you David and Angela for making us feel at home, and all the useful information on the local area and activities. We highly recommend this guest house to everyone. We will be back this summer.

We stayed for two nights b&b in October and had a lovely time. The hosts are very welcoming and served the best breakfast. The room was spacious, very clean and overlooked the village. We had a trip on the Steamer and treated ourselves to afternoon tea at the Inn on the Lake. Would not hesitate in booking to stay again.

Over the years we have stayed in many types of accommodation in and around the lake district, B&B, Self Catering and large hotels but Ullswater House is easily one of the best. Our room was bright and airy and the standard of décor would put at least one large hotel we have stayed in to shame. The breakfasts are immense... More

It was in July last year that my girlfriend and I visited Ullswater House. Hosts David and Angela were most welcoming and ensured we were looked after wonderfully. They made great suggestions for places to visit on top of the locations we'd already planned to visit and had a genuine interest in their surrounding area. The B&B is conveniently positioned...
