Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have had the best weekend in your remarkable accommodation at Waternook !!
The weather wasn't with us but we made full use of the water activities on ullswater as well as the truly amazing extras at the house… cinema room - hot tub - steam room !!
The house is truly luxurious.
My family were transported into a wonderful world where every detail in every one of the en-suite bedrooms was perfect.
The dogs loved their house too. Great accommodation for them.
I would recommend this place for any special family occasion.

After a really challenging year, we wanted to get away from it all, with peace and tranquility. We rented the Great Barn for our family of 4, plus 2 dogs, and I have to say it was even better than expected. The property was done to such a high standard, and offered so much space relax in. The weather was kind to us, and to be able to walk from the front door was amazing. We walked the whole length of the lake, getting the steamer back to Howtown, and only used the car once on the day that it rained all day to go out for a lovely lunch in Pooley Bridge. The setting was incredible - so quiet and peaceful. It really was a perfect trip.

A fabulous property in the most stunning location. Everything is done to the highest standard. The lovely housekeeper calls to check everyone is happy and nothing is too much trouble. The welcome hamper is an incredibly nice touch. We have been several times and Waternook still has the WOW factor.
Each room is immaculate and the beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept in!
A beautiful peaceful location with lots of lovely outside space to enjoy the magnificent surroundings.

Our stay at Waternook on Ullswater (5th-12th August), was simply marvellous. The house was lovely; tastefully decorated and spacious, and catered for all our needs. The cinema room was also a big hit with our youngsters! The setting of the house is absolutely breathtaking offering up views that one could never tire of. Our family really enjoyed water sporting in the Lake; swimming, paddle boarding and using a dinghy it was just wonderful to have this facility right on our doorstep! We came together as a family to celebrate a golden year and the beautiful Waternook on Ullswater has left us with some truly magical memories.

We booked into this very special place to have a family break after lockdown. It was the tonic we were looking for after having our trip to Canada cancelled due to Covid-19. Stunning scenery and lovely walks with superb local restaurant 1863 close by in Pooley Bridge. Total relaxation and peace overlooking magnificent Ullswater lake. Great views from the top of the fell accessed directly from the property. Evenings spent watching movies in the cinema room, a great way to end the day. Really enjoyed by all the family. Very spacious rooms with sumptuous beds and modern bathrooms. Loved spending time at the kitchen table watching the wildlife. Will be back!

Our family of 20 spent the most wonderful week away celebrating my 60th and Christmas staying in Waternook and The Great Barn. Waking up to wonderful views, cooking, singing, laughing, dining in the spacious kitchen. Relaxing in the hot tub, making cocktails at the bar, watching films. Lovely walks on the doorstep including a scenic walk to Pooley Bridge, and Ullswater Steamer return. Had not seen my family for almost 2 years due to lockdown, so thank you to Dominic and Laura for all your help in making it perfect. It will stay in our memory forever.

Superb accommodation. Everything done to the highest possible standard. We feel a sense of peace and tranquillity as soon as we walk through the door. There is everything here you could possibly need. Bedding and towels are excellent. Kitchen well equipped. All this and views to die for!

Room Tip: The road to the property around the lake is very narrow - make the journey in daylight if possible.

Everything about this place is first class.
Location, facilities and accommodation is great. Our stay was brilliant and the concierge services we able to buy in before lock down complimented it perfectly.
It is a beautiful location and a great getaway place for a holiday. Our family - all adults and 2 dogs - can’t wait to go back

We stayed at Waternook in September 23 with a group of friends. A stunning property, well equipped and furnished with views down Ullswater. Situated in a very quiet part of the lake the only noise you could hear apart from nature were people on the lake. What a great experience and not to be forgotten

Could you please advise which is the quietest bedroom for a very light sleeper?
Answer from mrsglobetrotter888
London, United Kingdom1 contribution
I would say all rooms are blissfully quiet as Waternook sits on its own private estate away from cars and the public... However it's no longer a B&B its top end self-catering but with lots of extra services available.
