    We stayed here for two nights on 28th and 29th July to finish off our lakeland break. After reading some reviews we were both a little concerned about what would be awaiting us especially as we ended our break here after staying in a fantastic hotel in another part of The Lake District. We are still wondering where the negative... More

    Dear Fussyteam Thank you for your review. We are dog friendly and know how much people love their best friend, we use areas of the hotel that aren’t carpeted for our furry guests as we have had problems in the past with less considerate dog owners which has caused the hotel problems.

    If you are looking for a beautiful place for a wedding and reception with accommodation you can't got wrong here. Beautiful setting inside and out with a pub of your own for your reception. Food good, and right on the edge of Ulleswater. Not difficult find either.

    The Inn on The Lake is quite frankly an enchanting venue. Booked a deal via Travelzoo to include one night stay, afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast.
