Full description

This exceptionally well appointed detached guest house occupies a superb, picturesque location with magnificent views across Ullswater and the fells beyond. Easily accessed from both the M6 Motorway (J40) and the A66 main trunk route, the property was converted to a guest house in the 1970s and was significantly extended around that time. It now benefits from seven en suite letting bedrooms, complimented by unusually spacious and self-contained owners' accommodation, making The Ullswater View an easily run and profitable business but also a delightful home.

Against a backdrop of classic Lakeland fells on one side and a gently curving shoreline of fields and woodland on the other, Ullswater bends and twists its way through nine miles of spectacular Lakeland countryside. Topped and tailed by Pooley Bridge and Glenridding, Ullswater gives that delightful feeling of remoteness, but it so close to the M6 as well as Keswick and the northern Lakeland fells. Beyond Glenridding lies Brothers Water and Kirkstone Pass, taking you over to Ambleside and Grasmere and such easy access to the central Lakeland fells - all of which makes The Ullswater View a delightful place to stay and tour this breath-taking countryside of the Lake District National Park.
