Jeff C, North Yorkshire, stayed: November 2018

We had a lovely short stay at the Inn on the Lake. The view over Ullswater from our room was excellent, but the highlight of our stay was the afternoon tea, which was absolutely superb!

Birthday celebration

Julia, stayed: June 2018

All the family came for Afternoon tea in the Orangery after a boat trip on the Ullswater Steamer which was delicious. We said good bye after a stroll around the garden and down to the lakeside. Our room had a lakeview and balcony which was wonderful. We spent some time relaxing before our evening meal in the Restaurant which was excellent as was breakfast. Last coffee on the balcony before checking out. Wonderful stay very special
