We stayed here for one night only, a Wednesday and we had a great stay. We were met at the door by Angela who gave us a big friendly welcome. Angela showed us to our room and filled us in on all the local information like what each pub is like, where the good food is served and where to...

We cannot fault the Ullswater Guest House, a lovely welcome, great facilities, very clean and comfortable and we felt able to ask for anything we needed without ever feeling 'watched over'. Topped off by a fantastic breakfast and a thoughtful touch for us celebrating our wedding anniversary we would definitely recommend to all.

We stayed for two nights b&b in October and had a lovely time. The hosts are very welcoming and served the best breakfast. The room was spacious, very clean and overlooked the village. We had a trip on the Steamer and treated ourselves to afternoon tea at the Inn on the Lake. Would not hesitate in booking to stay again.

Over the years we have stayed in many types of accommodation in and around the lake district, B&B, Self Catering and large hotels but Ullswater House is easily one of the best. Our room was bright and airy and the standard of décor would put at least one large hotel we have stayed in to shame. The breakfasts are immense...

It was in July last year that my girlfriend and I visited Ullswater House. Hosts David and Angela were most welcoming and ensured we were looked after wonderfully. They made great suggestions for places to visit on top of the locations we'd already planned to visit and had a genuine interest in their surrounding area. The B&B is conveniently positioned...
