Condé Nast Johansens awarded Sharrow Bay The Best Waterside Hotel in their Awards for Excellence UK & Ireland. A decision reached by a combination of guest votes and expert assessment - we are thrilled.
Thank you to all our guests who both nominated us then voted for the awards - it means a great deal to the team at Sharrow Bay who do their utmost to make your visit a pleasure. Thank you!
Our silent asset is Ullswater itself, the most beautiful lake in the Lake District - and we have the most advantageous and spectacular view of it. Perched as we are right on the lakeshore, with our unsurpassable view south along the lake sweeping towards the central mountains - only punctuated by Helvellyn itself, England's third highest mountain. Though only minutes from Penrith, our secluded location at the foot of the wild eastern Ullswater Fells, nestled in acres of private wooded lakeshore and gardens, ensures total peace and tranquility from which to enjoy all that Ullswater can offer.
If you would like to see more of Sharrow Bay and our lake view keep an eye on our social media - the weather combined with the landscape can create moments of pure magic, and we're on hand to share them with them with you as they happen.
Though we had no hand in forming that view, it never ceases to amaze us with its variety and sheer breath-taking magnificence. We thank Mr Parkin who had the foresight to build Sharrow Bay here - setting as he did a tradition of welcoming hospitality that we take pride in continuing.
We hope we can welcome you to Sharrow Bay soon.
