Warm friendly hotel with comfortable rooms and lovely breakfast Swimming pool available if needed This hotel is five minutes away from the lake which is abundant with activities lots to do. Some of the rooms overlap the lake. Well worth a visit.

We stayed here for a family location. It is close to Ullswater and is in the heart of the village of Glenridding. The room we stayed in was very clean and nicely furnished. The restaurant is excellent. There is a small indoor pool to enjoy and the walking in the area is great.
