Why We Love It

  • The property is in a quiet lakeside location in Glenridding with views of Ullswater
  • There's a 9-hole pitch and putt course on site and steamboat tours leave from the dock 5 minutes away
  • The restaurant has 2-AA-Rosette restaurant serves modern British cuisine, with afternoon tea in the Orangery
  • The traditional pub serves its own exclusive real ale


Set within 15 acres of landscaped grounds, Inn on the Lake is set right on the shores of Ullswater. Surrounded by craggy mountains in the hamlet of Glenridding, it is 20 minutes' drive from the charming market town of Penrith, while the bustle of Keswick is 30 minutes away.

Guests can try their hand at pitch & putt on the lawn, and the dock for steamboat tours of the lake is a 5-minute walk to Ullswater Steamer.

The 2-AA-Rosette Lake View Restaurant offers unbeatable views of Ullswater. Menus change seasonally and there is a wide choice of wines.

From 12-5pm, guests can take afternoon tea with homemade biscuits in the less-formal Orangery, which is stylishly furnished with deep sofas and a natural stone fireplace. In the grounds there's also a traditional Lakeland pub for relaxed dining, with real ale on tap including a house ale. The Candleroom, a glass-fronted extension with exposed oak beams and church candle lights which hang from the rafters, serves traditional Cumbrian dishes and afternoon tea.

Rooms are cosily furnished and most have a view, either straight onto Ullswater or overlooking the village and the mountains beyond. Some come with glass-edged balconies, affording excellent views over the lake.

I am glad that I upgraded to a lake view room, really good size.
Other Comments
I would suggest to be more pro-active with guests with dogs and be more prepared in the orangery i.e. have juices and cereals ready for that number of people staying with their dogs. It wasn't ideal for me going to get two glasses of juice and croissants balancing a glass on a plate across from one end of the hotel to the other.
