Where to stay
You’ll be spoilt for choice when looking for a place to stay in Ullswater. For overnight visits, weekend breaks, or summer holidays we have it all. From grand hotels in beautiful lakeside locations, family run bed and breakfasts with a home from home welcome and self catering cottages with stunning views.
Or perhaps you prefer being at one with nature and pitching a tent in one of the many camp sites on the shores of the lake? If that is too much why not hire a caravan with those creature comforts or get cosy in a yurt and try glamping with friends?
Whatever you are looking for and whatever your budget, we have something to suit everyone. Remember not to get too comfortable though or you won’t want to leave!
