We were so pleased we booked to stay at Elm House - Anne and Mark are lovely people and, upon first meeting them, you feel welcomed into their home. Our room was clean and, although it overlooked the road, it was very quiet, just the odd tractor rumbled by. Our breakfasts were well presented and well cooked and, to add to our pleasure, the dining room overlooks the garden where Anne feeds all the birds within a 50 mile radius! We certainly hope to return at sometime in the future to enjoy Anne and Mark's hospitality again.

The most helpful tip I can give about the Elm House is - stay there! Meant in the best way it is virtually like staying in a private home, as Mark & Anne are very friendly & helpful, their breakfast is truely amazing, home cooked (best to order the night before) & sets you up for the day's activity in the surrounding stunning countryside.
There are various sized rooms (well displayed on their website) & ok some of the bathrooms maybe could be termed intimate, but they are sparkling clean & the rooms have everthing you could possibly want, tv, tea & coffee, a fridge, right down to a cosy towelling bathrobe & a teddy for anyone feeling lonely!!
A good night's sleep is ensured as it is very quiet, the beds very comfortable & the sheets crispy clean (changed every 3 days for those on longer stays). If you like more space, book one of the larger rooms, if you like large bathrooms & are on a budget then it's Room 1 - not ensuite, but private across the hall.
Many top hotels could learn a thing or two from the Elm House - so stay there, you won't be disappointed!

My wife and I stayed for two nights. We were welcomed very warmly and guided to our well appointed room on arrival. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly which included a lovely breakfast! Location was perfect to get to all amenities in pooley bridge. Nothing was too much for our hosts. We will be recommending elm house to our friends and family!

Me and my other half stayed at elm house for 2 nights from the 10th of may, and from start to finish it was an enjoyable stay! On the arrival we was shown to our room by mark who was very welcoming and it definitely out shone any pictures I had seen on here as it was simply beautiful....the location is perfect also as it has lovely country walks & landmarks to see, which the hosts happily helped us with directions too. The room we stayed in was room 4 which was equipt with small details that showed us that the hosts wanted to help with every need e.g. mini fridge, radio/iPod dock, earbuds, cotton face pads, shower cap etc.. another bonus of attending elm house was the hearty breakfast we recieved each morning which was delicious with lots of choice, i stuck with the full cumbrian breakfast which was cooked beautifully, whereas my other half had the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs which he stated was cooked perfectly & tasted great. As we decided on eating out for our tea each night, pooley bridge wasnt short of public houses that were very welcoming, with also lots of choice for meals, they were also very good value for money and had a great atmosphere although we did have to book for the sun inn as it was very busy! The only problem I found was in our room we would hear from time to time a gush of water which sounded like a water fall, we put it down to a water pipe however it didn't put a dampener on our stay and we would happily recommend elm house to anyone who is planning on a lake district trip! Elm house is locationed beautifully, reasonably priced and has excellent service, couldnt of asked for anything more! All in all thank you very much to Mark and Anne for making our stay so enjoyable, being very attentive and welcoming throughout! :)

We stayed for one night and received a very warm welcome. Elm house is a very nice place place to stay our room was great and furnished to a fantastic standard. The staff were very helpful, polite and assisted us in every way possible. Mark even kept us right with a few routes to try on the road bikes which was a great help. Really good location to visit all areas of the Lake District and Pooley Bridge/Ullswater. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good B&B in the Lakes.
