Booked late but managed to get the king room (room 4) for two nights. This is a big room with a comfortable king bed, a sitting area and a large en-suite bathroom. Room was nice and clean. A big bonus for us was free wifi - some international hotels take note! There was no noticeable noise or traffic at night.... More

Elm House provides a very good base to explore Ullswater and offers what a good B&B should. Our room was clean, comfortable and warm although quite small and no view. Clean towels and heated towel rack were also very nice. The highlight was the breakfast which was excellent! During our stay we tried almost everything on the menu and everything... More

We have just returned from a fantastic couple of days staying at Elm House B&B in Pooley Bridge. The choices given for breakfast were excellent and very well presented. We would recommend this lovely little B&B to anyone. We also had fantastic weather which really helped.

This B&B is situated in the stunning lakeland village of Pooley Bridge. The rooms are warm and cosy and immaculately kept. The traditional English breakfasts set you up for the day and the location is ideal for striking out to all parts of the Lake district. The ferry if you choose to take a cruise along beautiful Ullswater Lake is... More

We had a smallish room which was cosy and warm. Ensuite small but serviceable and there were nice shampoos to use. Nice big fluffy towels. Appreciated our bag being taken up to our room. We only had light breakfast but the porridge was the best. Cost more than similar B&B's on our coast to coast path. Lovely people run this... More

Just had four nights B&B at Elm House. Ann and Mark were terrific. On this occasion as a singe traveller I had a small double bed room that was not wanting for anything. It was very clean and the breakfasts were first class. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would have no hesitation in recommending Elm House.

We decided to go away for a couple of nights one afternoon and luckily found this B & B had a vacancy for two nights. We found it easily and were welcomed into the house and shown our room. It was a spacious double room with a modern well-appointed shower room and toilet en-suite. The room was well furnished and... More

Just got back from our amazing weekend in the Lake District which was made all the better thanks to our stay here. Mark and Anne were lovely and pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was really spacious, well decorated and immaculately clean. The small touches ie mints on pillows, water in fridge and especially our wine glasses... More

Only stayed one night here in a family room. Very surprised when the family room was actually 2 separate bedrooms with the en suite in between them which was absolutely perfect. Each room had beautiful decor and everything was immaculate. TV and well stocked hospitality tray in both rooms and even a small fridge with a couple of bottles of... More
