We had a lovely stay for 1 night at this B&B , the location is excellent in the heart of Pooley Bridge, we felt welcome the staff are very helpful & friendly. Room was clean & comfortable, garden furniture a nice touch to sit out with a coffee in the sunshine . Would stay again if visiting Pooley Bridge. Breakfast was delicious

It is a beautiful guest house, with great breakfast, toiletries, comfortable bed, clean and spacious room. We love this location - walking distance to the 3 pubs (restaurants in the inns of the town), gift shops, and the Ullswater 'Steamers'. It is highly recommended!

I booked this B&B for my Grandma, she couldn’t fault her stay. The breakfast was lovely (although she couldn’t finish the generous portion!), it was immaculately clean and with lovely furnishings. The owners did everything in their power to make her feel welcome and comfortable. Thanks!

My third visit to this guesthouse, and the first since it recently came under new management. Still good, but I hope they put back a fridge for guests on the first floor where it used to be. Clean rooms, comfy beds, nice breakfasts.

We stayed here as a family of four which included our 2 teenage boys. On arrival we were surprised that the B&B had been taken over on the day we arrived and we were the new owners first guests. We received a warm welcome and were shown to our rooms. The rooms were spacious, well decorated and clean. The breakfast was good and the cooked option set you up for the day ahead. There are 3 pubs only a few metres from the B&B. We had a meal at the Sun Inn and it was lovely. Ullswater Lake is a very short walk away and we did manage to walk to Aira Force Waterfall from the Ullswater B&B. It is a bit of a hike and does include a fair amount of walking on the road, however it is a lovely walk with different scenery along the way. We also did the Dalemain Loop, this is across fields but again a lovely walk. All in all a lovely break in a beautiful part of the country. I wish the new owners well in their new venture.
