My family and I received a warm welcome at The White House while breaking our journey south from the Highlands. The rooms were well appointed with comfortable beds and a cot was provided for the baby; breakfast was very good and parking was safe and easy.

Stopped here on my way back to the Midlands from Oban in Scotland. Warm welcome; delightful spacious and comfortable room with excellent wifi signal. Breakfast was really enjoyable. Pub over the road does excellent evening meal. In choosing the White House, I fell on my feet.

Very nice stay, excellent breakfast. Comfy beds. The lady let us into our room early and was very accommodating. Plenty of room for parking and lots of storage. If you aren't from the area taxis are very expensive! From a wedding at Askham Hall it was £30 back.

Helen, the landlady was pleasant and welcoming and we were lucky to be the only guests with access to the warm living room downstairs. The accomodation was of high quality with a beautiful view...

We stayed overnight as a last minute break which my husband booked. We were made very welcome by Helen. Our room was really clean with a nice selection of toiletries . Breakfast was excellent. It was only a few miles from Pooley Bridge which is the top end of Ullswater, so the lakes are easily accessible. We would definitely stay... More
