hotel from Arthur pike

Aerial view

Opposite the hotel, through our windows and from the lakeshore, you will be met with the view of Arthur’s Pike. Just a short drive from the hotel, you can earn this view of the hotel on a two-hour walk from start to finish. Photo by Sam Crosby.

Ullswater valley

Ullswater valley

Wherever you climb in the Ullswater valley, you get views like this. Long green valleys with faraway peaks. In the Ullswater valley, part of The Far Eastern Fells written by Alfred Wainwright, you will find 36 of his recommended walks. Photo by Sam Crosby.

Hello neighbour – sheep on the hill

Farming has been part of the Ullswater valley for a thousand years. Look across from the hotel and you’ll see a hand-built, dry-stone wall, first put up in the Mediaeval period to keep flocks from wandering too far. Photo by Sam Crosby.

Our giant oak tree in our grounds is naked in winter, but fulsome in summer months and a great place to spend an afternoon in the hammock. Photo by Holly Donnelly.

The hotel from Pooley Bridge

You can glimpse us here from Pooley Bridge, the nearest village. Catch a steamer around the lake, a coffee and cake and a quiet pint by the river when you are out exploring. Photo by Sam Crosby.

Winds often blow down the lake, but far from being unpleasant, from under this oak tree, the sound of leaves can be one of life’s simple pleasures. Photo by Holly Donnelly.

Snow on the jetty

This is where you push off in a kayak, launch from with a paddleboard and step off to get out for a swim. Snow, or not, this is where our lake adventures begin. Photo by Neil Haydock.

Dark skies

The Lakes are one of the top places in the UK to view the night sky. Also, the perfect place for a night swim from our jetty… Photo by Ben Bush.
