“Highly recommend”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We stayed here as a group as we were going to a friend's wedding nearby. We were lucky to have the whole guest house to ourselves as we managed to fill all of the rooms. Angela & David were really accommodating and did their best to make sure we had everything we needed and worked around the wedding plans. They provided us with tel nos for local taxi firms and gave us information on a local hairdresser.
The rooms all are all tastefully decorated, immaculately clean and provided with everything you need. Breakfast was really good, with a vast choice to suit everyone's needs. We will definitely stay again.
It is ideally situated for walks and is right near to the lake where you can catch the steamboat.
We can also recommend the pub across the road (Pooley Bridge Inn) for food, it was excellent with home made chips, friendly staff and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: All rooms were lovely in their own individual way. Room 5 is downstairs .

The friendliest of welcomes is guaranteed at this warm, clean and comfortable B&B in the heart of Pooley Bridge. Nothing is too much trouble for your hosts whether it's providing a real choice for breakfast or a walkers packed lunch, advising on the local area and things to do or just making you feel special.

Stayed for 5 nights and could easily have stayed for longer, cannot wait to return.

Stayed with Angela and David for 2 nights in room 1. Our room was beautifully decorated and furnished. Comfortable bed and the room was very spacious. Lots of lovely touches throughout. Breakfast was yummy and Angela was really flexible about timings as we were attending a wedding. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again.

We stayed one night in August 2013, the room was well appointed and spotless and David & Angela went out of their way to help us with our early arrival when that was our problem and really they didn't have to. Excellent breakfast, good service, friendly atmosphere. This B&B does what it says on the tin.

Had a really nice weekend away in Pooley Bridge. Angela & David provide everything you could need. Angela was very helpful and gave us lots of advice on different walks in the area. After a days walking (unfortunately in the rain) she also offered to dry our clothes for us when we returned. Our room was spotless and the breakfast was amazing, especially the full english.The guest house is ideally situated, with three pubs within a stones throw and the Ullswater Steamer pier is just around the corner. We'd recommend the Sun Inn if you fancy some good pub grub in the evening (especially the huge fish & chips!). Thanks again for a great stay.
