My wife and I have just returned home after spending 3 perfect nights at Ouse Bridge House. The owners and staff were very warm and welcoming, and couldn't be more helpful. Our room was very comfortable, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The views over Bassenthwaite Lake and the fells beyond were simply stunning. We only had B&B so we couldn't... More

We stayed in an en-suite room at the top of the house with a lovely view of the Lake and surrounding hills. The room was small but had everything we needed and a... More

We are a group of open water swimmers who swim in the lake district every year. Claire and Stephen at the Ouse Bridge Hotel made us very welcome and looked after all our wet gear in their drying room. The rooms were very comfortable and we had a great view over Bassenthwaite lake. Breakfast was delicious and Stephen booked us... More

We've just returned from a stay at the Ouse Bridge Hotel, and it was absolutely wonderful. Claire and Steve are really charming and friendly hosts who put in a lot of effort, and it's notable that there's not a single rating of fewer than 4 stars on this website since they took over the hotel. Breakfasts are gorgeous and plentiful,... More

My friend and have stayed here four years running. The single rooms are lovely, a good size and nicely appointed. The hosts are so kind and welcoming. Breakfasts can be either hearty with a full English or a lighter fruit and cereal option. It would be churlish to make any critism about the Ouse Bridge - there are a couple... More
