We have been staying here for the past 20 years (even before it was converted to luxury apartments). The grounds are amazing with the perfect outlook over Windermere from the main house. I would not stay in the cottages on the grounds as they don't have the views and are not finished to the same standard. I would have graded... More

I would not hesitate in recommending this complex. The apartment we had was superb. Pullwood is ideally situated in lovely woodland, with lovely lake views. The apartment was spotless with attention to detail. The little touches, milk in the fridge on arrival, dishwasher tablets, freezer packs, an excellent drying cabinet, Bose sound system in all rooms, I could go on.... More

I have to say that this cottage is by far the nicest place I've stayed, you can tell a lot of time and effort has been put into renovating this cottage. It has a really good central location, to all good tourist destinations in the lake district. Would recommend to anybody looking for a break in the lake district.

had a perfect stay, apartment was truly excellent, few very minor things need maintaining bit the quality of furnishing, cleanliness, facilities were simply perfect. The grounds are even better, the front lawn is well kept and well loved by the Canadian geese. The walk through the ground is stunning, defers, owls, otters and lots of ducks. One thing, someone needs... More

We booked the Bowfell apartment for 3 nights and they were the best so far. Every morning we woke up with a marvellous lake view and the singing birds. We definitely recommend it for couples, families or friends looking for luxurious accommodation combined with the wildness, silence and beauty of nature!

The whole experience at Pullwood Bay is fantastic. The team are warm, friendly and flexible, and the property and grounds are amazing. We stayed in the Skiddaw apartment. This apartment is on the 2nd floor and has stunning views of the lake from both lounge and kitchen. The apartment is really quite large! It's finished and furnished to a high... More

It was our first time to the lake distict and Pullwood bay was absolutely amazing. It is luxurious and we loved it from the moment we arrived. I cannot over emphasise how beautiful the place was and the apartment was exquisite. Anyone who visits the lake district must stay here. I Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Than you so much.

We come back year after year to Pullwood Bay with other families. The views are simply stunning and Sara and the team ensure every trip is fantastic. The properties are spacious and offer different perspectives of the lake every day. The grounds offer children the opportunity to explore and play and having its own private jetty enables you to explore... More

4 years since our last family visit and with new owners (although same management team), Helvellyn still excels and provides an astoundingly modern, spacious, uncluttered & clean retreat for our short break. We can forgive the Lake District for it's unpredictable weather when we wake up to a Noah's Ark of wildlife on the garden just below our window, Deer,... More
