About Ullswater – Accommodation: Hotels, Cottages, B&Bs Caravan & Camping, plus Restaurants, Walking and Events.

Welcome to Ullswater, a glorious Cumbrian treasure nestled on the eastern fringes of the Lake District National Park, adjacent to the tranquil Eden Valley and just a short drive from the M6 motorway.

Forget bright lights and tourist hot spots, the Ullswater Valley is a haven of peace and tranquillity – a must for walkers, water-lovers and those looking to escape the daily grind.

Ullswater itself is of course the main attraction. Surrounded by gently rolling countryside at the northern end around Pooley Bridge, a trip south down the lakeshore gives way to sheer fellsides that drop away into the water below, culminating in the majesty of England’s third highest mountain, Helvellyn.

Whether your visit is an annual holiday, a short break or just an escape for the day, Ullswater has a surprisingly diverse range of activities, places to stay, visit, eat and shop – many of which can be found on this website.

Read on, be inspired but most importantly – come and see us very soon…
