Welcome to Sharrow Bay Hotel, Ullswater Lakeside Restaurant and Gardens

Sharrow Bay is unique; the epitome of English country living in an unrivalled location surrounded by snow-topped mountains and fells, right on the shores of Ullswater, widely regarded as the most beautiful lake in the country.

As the Lake District’s jewel in the crown, Sharrow Bay was the first ever ‘country house hotel’. When the hotel first opened its doors in 1949, the then-owners, Francis Coulson and Brian Sack, brought to life their vision of a hotel whose guests feel utterly at home... and so it has continued.

Be Captivated by the Gentle Art of Sharrow

A visit to Sharrow Bay will transport you to a bygone era of old-fashioned luxury, decadence and complete tranquillity, where your comfort and enjoyment is paramount. Guests simply cannot fail to be enthralled by the captivating charm of Sharrow Bay; it’s one of those hotels that must be visited at least once in a lifetime, and once you've experienced the 'Gentle Art of Sharrow', once is never enough.

Sharrow Bay is open daily to non-residents for morning coffee, lunch and light snacks, traditional afternoon tea and dinner.
