“Absolutely Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

We stayed here for only 1 night (wish it had been more) on our way down South. Angela and David that own it are a lovely welcoming couple. The room was fantastic, very very clean and really nicely furnished with fab handmade toiletries. Breakfast the next morning was absolutely excellent! Would highly recommend this B&B to everyone!

Room Tip: All rooms are good!

Used Ullswater house as a base for my national sailing event on the lake and stayed the week mid August. Excellent accommodation and food. Angela and David are the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble to help make our stay enjoyable. Thoroughly recommended and well worth the 5 stars.

We have just spent two nights at Ullswater house after arriving at Pooley Bridge with no where to stay. We found the B & B in the middle of the village (which was not difficult). We were made very welcome immediately and had tea and scones in the garden before unpacking. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. Angela and David were the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely return to Ullswater House when we next visit the Lake District.

We just spent four nights at Ullswater Guest House and had a wonderful time! We were upgraded to the family room, which we were told was more suitable for us and we were very impressed. It had a Kingsize bed and a single bed plus a cot for our baby and two comfy chairs to sit and chill in with beautiful, tasteful fresh decor like a boutique hotel. It was spacious and had a lovely en suite bathroom with toiletries made in the lakes which were a lovely touch along with the hospitality tray. We didnt realise at the time but this room was more expensive than the room we had booked so thought it was lovely we had a free upgrade. We got to pick what time we would like breakfast and it was cooked on our arrival so hot and fresh and very delicious and a special breakfast made for our baby. We were made to feel really welcome and would highly recommend it. Also, great location in the centre of Pooley Bridge close to three pubs, a shop, two tea rooms and a stone's throw from the lake!

I honestly can't find enough good things to say about our stay here. While the property is in a great location the rooms are beautiful, spacious, spotless and very comfortable, I have to say that it is the lovely Angela and David that truly make staying here a wonderful experience - as hosts they make you feel welcome and comfortable not from the time you arrive but from the second you book! While staying with them they made every effort to make us as well looked after and relaxed as possible in a seemingly effortless way. They offered us advice on the best places to visit and eat in the area and gave us lots of information about the products they use that are all produced locally, which was both interesting and useful. Breakfast was delicious and even tempted the one person in our party who never touches breakfast normally!
There are only two negative thoughts I had while writing this review -
1. I had to leave the Ullswater when I would have loved to just take up residence
2. After letting other people in on how good it is, it will probably be booked up when I want to go back!

Very much a home away from home!! David and Angela have the perfect touch - concerned and thoughtful enough to make sure all your needs are met, but never intrusive. It was easy to think you had simply caught up with long-lost friends. We had a wonderful time on our first (but hopefully not our last) visit to the Lake District, sharing with two of our adult children. Pooley Bridge is the Cinderella choice - not too big, not too small, but just right! A great base for exploration.

Just returned home from a 1 night stay at Angela & Davids fantastic B&B. From the first to last minute we were there we couldnt have been catered for any better, I have never met a more genuine and friendly host & hostess who always had a smile on their faces! The B&B itself is spotlessly clean, spacious & very modernly decorated and the breakfast was great, myself & 2 friends stayed in the family room which was more than big enough for 3 adults. Pooley Bridge village is a little Lakeland gem we will be visiting again & Ullswater House will be our first choice of accomodation, thanks again Angela & David.
