Wordsworth wrote of Ullswater, "It is the happiest combination of beauty and grandeur which any of the lakes affords." To gaze out of our windows is to know him to be right beyond a shadow of a doubt. It is the most gorgeous view you could imagine, the phrase ‘breathtaking’ is not hyperbole, but perfectly literal. It never ceases to amaze us with its ever-changing moods and unceasing beauty… and we see it every day all year round. All of these views are direct from our picture windows overlooking Ullswater. We truly are the hotel with the best lake district view available. Every season we think… ah yes, this is when Ullswater looks her best, as she carries on dumbfounding us with spectacular combinations of drifting weather, water and mountain. She’s well worth a visit.
