Wonderfully friendly and helpful owners highlight his quaint find. Short walk to the 'downtown' area of Pooley Bridge (which features several restaurants, a couple of gift shops and an outdoor gear shop), as well as the pier for the Ullswater Steamers. Plenty of other highly scenic walks nearby. Breakfast is a highlight. Guests are provided with a menu on which... More

The breakfast was one of the best that I have ever had in England. A vast choice and I was thrilled to be able to have kippers which were delicious. You need to stay a week to taste everything. Even porridge with... More

If you're Googling for a B&B/Guest House in the Ullswater area of the Lakes, I might as well stop you now. Elm House has everything you need and more. My girlfriend and I were lucky enough to find this place vacant for the evening and we were more than happy with what it has to offer. The experience began with... More

Can't rate this bed and breakfast highly enough. Every little facility you want from a room such as fridge, bath towel, wine glasses, bottle opener is there. Bed is comfortable, room is warm and the breakfast is well prepared.
