Our party of 10 adults, 2 children and 2 toddlers stayed at Waternook to celebrate my 40th birthday and we all agreed everything was faultless. From my initial enquiry Dominic, the proprietor of Waternook, was always willing to assist with any enquiry and do whatever it took to make the weekend as special as possible. As soon as we arrived... More

We booked Waternook and The Great Barn for my father's 60th birthday. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the panoramic views of Ullswater and the surrounding valleys and mountain tops. It truly is a very special location. We mentioned that it was my fathers birthday when booking and when we walked in through the front door... More

We stayed here with our family for our sons 21st Birthday. It is everything you can imagine from the photographs and much much more. Every room is outstanding and the views are to die for. 100% recommend it for any occasion. We will definately be going back.

From the moment you arrive at the gates you know that you are in for a real treat staying at Waternook! The work that has gone into the building and the Great Barn can only be described as pure craftsmanship! Each bedroom has its own personality and feel with every room having fabulous views of the Lakes. The beds are... More

Outstanding location with great views. Two minutes' walk to the lake, or one minute's walk to the fell. Peaceful, relaxing, a haven of quiet. Great beds and high-quality bedding for a good night's sleep. Pubs and restaurants close by: a couple are walkable, others a short drive. Step out of the handsome house (no need to drive anywhere first) for... More

Some friends and I spent one night at Waternook on the way south from Scotland. It is very convenient for the M6, being only 20 minutes from the junction, and is in a lovely situation overlooking the lake. We had a deluxe and a standard room between us: both had very comfortable beds. The deluxe room had the biggest bed... More

My (now fiance) booked Waternook for us so that he could propose!!! Dominic went above and beyond and helped him plan the whole thing to perfection. He put the Champagne at the end of the jetty in time for sunset and the impending proposal, he helped make the whole experience magical!! I cannot rave about both Dominic and Waternook enough,...

Everything about this place oozes with excellence. Our gracious host, Dominic sets the standard in every aspect of this bed & breakfast. Its location alone fronting Ullswater with Hallin Fell literally in its backyard by itself is a driving point to stay here. However, on several other aspects would I choose to stay here. Our room was very clean and... More

I was recommended Waternook by a friend who had previously stayed with her partner and I have to say I was not disappointed. The B&B views are breathtaking and can be seen and enjoyed from every window that you look out of. The host Dominic was very welcoming and gave me and my friends lots of information/recomendations for things to... More
