We stayed for just 1 night but would really recommend Elm House for long or short stays. It is ideally situated at the edge of the village within a short walk of 3 pubs all of which serve food and real ale. It is about a five minute walk to the pier for the Ullswater steamers. Our room was comfortable,... More

This was our first trip to the Lakes and what a nice little surprise Elm House is, Settled on Pooley Bridge within walking distance to Ullswater Lake, we found Elm House a beatiful little home from Home. Firstly our room was on the grond floor. It was beautifully decorated with everything you needed. Even a small fridge containing mineral water... More

My husband and I spent one night here but I wish we had the chance to stay for more! We stayed in room 5 which is one of their luxury rooms. The room was lovely and clean, really well decorated with a lovely en suite bathroom. It was a little smaller than I had expected though. The bed was lovely... More

Stayed here for 2 nights recently, what a lovely little place. The lady that runs it is very friendly and helpful even checking the daily weather forecast out for guests. Beautiful breakfast in the morning which sets you up nicely for the day. Also very nice to watch the birds feeding in the garden of a morning.

Just spent and amazing new year here with another couple and had the best time. Its absolutely spotless and really tasteful, lots of lovely little touches and attention to detail. Breakfast was really nice and was no trouble for them to rustle us up a great packed lunch for our days walking in the rain. Great location in the village... More

Elm house ticks all the boxes. It is warm and comfortable: even when you can't find something you want, you know it is somewhere in the room because Mark and Anne really have thought of everything. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious and there was plenty of choice. To top it all, Pooley Bridge nestles at one end of Ullswater so you... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights in Elm House. Mark was a great host and he came out to greet us when he noticed us parking. We were served hot tea on arrival. The ensuite room was spacious and was of high quality. Flat screen TV and wifi were available in room. The shower was strong and hot,... More

I stayed here with a group of friends for a walking weekend. A great guesthouse with very helpful, kind owners who have thought of everything to make your stay as easy and relaxing as possible. Fabulous rooms and facilities, they even include wine glasses and a bottle opener for you on the tea tray!

Stayed here for our 1st wedding anniversary. Lovely room very nicely decorated and everything thought of that you could need when away from home. Breakfast was very tasty and a great choice. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

Asked for a room with big comfortable bed. Certainly got that and a good night's sleep. But not much space left after the inclusion of an ensuite (albeit small) in what would have been a standard sized room in this type of house. A perennial b and b problem. Handsome breakfast. Efficiently and pleasantly run and plenty of notices to... More
