Spent two nights at Styan Bew recently. I defy you to find another B&B like this one. James our host made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for him. There are numerous walks from the door and we may have tackled more had the weather been half decent. One thing that was lovely is coming back to Styan Bew to find the woodburner on and the sitting room warm and welcoming. Good for drying out those wet walking clothes and boots. A very comfortable sitting room with a table where James serves the biggest breakfast ever and a good sized bedroom with en suite bathroom. A birdwatchers paradise sitting watching the birds on the feeders in the garden. Woodpeckers, goldfinches, chaffinches etc. Would definately recommend to anyone who is wanting accommodation in the Ullswater area.
