Stayed here for three nights. Booked last minute. Great friendly welcome. Room was clear and had everything we needed. Large choice for breakfast and food was good. Heard during our stay that they were closing later this year for renovation to include a bar and lounge area. Will definitely go back once it's done.

I stayed here with a friend for one night as we were en-route cycling coast-to-coast. We were made very welcome in this lovely guest house. The room was clean and comfortable with good facilities. Mark, the host, was very helpful with suggestions for evening meals and also advice for the cycle route ahead. I would definitely stay there again especially... More

Have stayed at Elm House six times since 2010. An excellent B&B, in a great location. On the edge of Pooley Bridge, the centre of which is only a few minutes walk away. Pooley Bridge has several nice pubs, and several other nice pubs are only a short drive away by car. Well positioned for access to the magnificent lake... More

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

Everything was perfect. Lovely modern rooms tastefully decorated and fantastic spacious bathroom with high quality towels and toiletries. 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

The owners were very welcoming and friendly....just what you need to feel at ease after a decent journey (this was very much appreciated! :o) ). The B&B was cosy and comfortable and breakfast really was fantastic! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Rooms were a pleasant surprise as the main... 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
