Friendly, helpful hosts, especially when it comes to parking - thanks Angela and David. Nice cosy accommodation, with great breakfast - excellent fuel for our cycling trip. Great location in Pooley Bridge.

The grounds of this bed and breakfast are everything that was promised: clean, tidy and efficient. It was perhaps lacking the charm of other inns in the area, but if you prefer modern amenities to historical essence, you will likely appreciate this B&B over others in Pooley Bridge. We were impressed with the selection of coffees, teas and biscuits in...

We stayed for one night (probably one of the busiest nights of the year in Pooley Bridge, it was the boat race). We received a really warm welcome and were advised to book a table at a nearby restaurant as soon as possible as it would soon get booked up. Good advice! The room was lovely if a little small...

We enjoyed our short but delightful stay with David and Angela at Ullswater House. They are very welcoming and full of helpful advice about where to eat and what to do.
