We had high hopes after reading the reviews online. We were not disappointed. Angela and David were lovely hosts. This was one of our first stops during my parents holiday trip and every subsequent stay had been compared to this bnb- clean rooms with lovely toiletries, hearty english breakfasts and lively morning chats... Thank you for showing my parents and... More

Angela and David may well be refreshingly new to bed and breakfast, but they have already managed to excel and hit standards that we have not seen before. From the warm welcome, to the lovely touches in the room, superb shower, a bed to die for and the absolutely magnificent breakfast, we can not praise Ullswater House more highly. Thank... More

Our whole family took over the 1st floor (4 bedrooms) and we had a superb 3 night stay. Awesome breakfasts, lovely comfortable bedrooms and everywhere was spotless. Very convenient for access to the eastern Lake District.

My wife and I stayed the Ullswater House over the weekend on 20/21 December 2012 while we competed in the nearby Tour de Helvellyn ultra marathon and I really can't speak highly enough of the place. The proprieters (Angela and David) are welcoming and very friendly, the rooms are clean and very well-cared for, literally nothing was too much trouble... More

We were a family party of six from New Zealand and stayed three nights mid October 2012. Angela and David are fantastic hosts and gave us great service from the booking to our departure. Ullswater House is brilliantly located for a visit to the Lakes, the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Angela and David have done an excellent job... More

We stayed here for only 1 night (wish it had been more) on our way down South. Angela and David that own it are a lovely welcoming couple. The room was fantastic, very very clean and really nicely furnished with fab handmade toiletries. Breakfast the next morning was absolutely excellent! Would highly recommend this B&B to everyone!
