Late bppking to meet friends booked in Patterdale Hotel - no room at the inn. Web threw up Old Water View. Downside? Room a bit small... Upside? The people Dave and Ali (?) were brilliant. We had a query about late arrival. Not a problem says Dave. And it really wasn't. Friendly

The owners are the nicest people and couldn't have been more helpful. The room and bathroom were spotless, as was the rest of the house. There is a very comfortable lounge (with wood burner) and a drying room for wet things. Breakfast was awesome. This was my first trip into

Stopped one night in this lovely traditional slate guesthouse which is on the riverside next to Ullswater. The room was modern and clean with all the facilities you would expect. The guesthouse has a drying room where hikers can put damp boots and coats etc. There is a cute bar

I wish we'd been visiting under different circumstances, as it was we just needed an overnight stay whilst attending a wedding nearby. We were blown away by the standard for the fee we were paying. Breakfast was great, with the opportunity to try different local jams etc. -

I would strongly recommend your ring/e-mail Dave the new owner of the OWV with your question. I can never remember seeing any dogs in the times I have stayed at the OWV but Dave might have a different policy than the previous owner. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Sorry - but not having dogs, I don't know the answer to that. I certainly didn't see any there. Having said that, the owner at the time (June 2017) was about to conclude a sale of the property and emigrate to the USA, so the new owner might have a different policy anyway. Suggest you contact them directly and ask the question. The number was 01768 482175 in June, but could also have changed. Hope that helps.

Hi, we are a vegetarian family so that is not a problem. The Bothy room has no stairs leading to the room but has 5 steps leading to the bathroom. Ian

"All rooms had character - mine had a story attached that Wainwright himself had slept in it!!"
"The whole area was very quaint, and a great place to relax with great views and great owners."
