Beautiful Queen Anne residence at Ullswater offering 4 poster beds and roll top baths at sensible prices.

We love this place - it's quirky and hardly anyone knows about it !   You won't find it on the 'Go Lakes' Cumbria Tourism websites because it's

refreshingly old fashioned and likes to be different.  Well worth a look!

affordable accommodation, a self catering kitchen for families to use,

roll top baths and four poster beds . It's a step back in time and worth a visit and amazingly good value-

Lake District National Park just a few hundred yards from the Lakeside
