About Old Water View Hotel

First opened as “Ullswater View Boarding House” in 1904, The Old Water View Hotel has been welcoming walkers, travellers and holiday makers for over one hundred years. Alfred Wainwright stayed here on a number of occasions whilst he was creating the world famous “Coast to Coast” walk, the route of which passes within 100 metres of our door.

How ever you arrive at The Old Water View Hotel, whether on foot or by car, you can be sure of a warm welcome, and comfortable accommodation.

Nestling on the banks of Goldrill Beck, which flows round our garden, Old Water View is the perfect place for a relaxing break, whether for a single night or longer. All the main tourist centres of Ambleside, Windermere, Keswick and Penrith are within easy reach of Patterdale.

Old Water View is very “walker friendly”, and if you should happen to arrive with us slightly “damp”, we will try to ensure that you leave the next day fully refreshed, and in dry clothing and boots!!

In addition to our long tradition of fine bed and breakfast accommodation we  have a superb Wainwright C2C Bar, with a good selection of wines and our own range of Patterdale Ales, brewed exclusively for us by the famous Tirril Brewery. We also have our Garden Bar and Terrace.

We offer a range of great facilities, including a wide range of pampering treatments for our guests supplied by Holistic Therapist Hazel Bell. Please take a look our facilities page for details on what we have to offer.

As most of our guests prefer it, all the guest rooms at The Old Water View Hotel are “Non Smoking”

We aim to ensure you leave us at the end of your stay refreshed, and ready to face whatever the day might have in store for you. We’ll send you on your way with a traditional “Lakeland” breakfast, and with a packed lunch if required.

We would be delighted to welcome you into our home. If you would like to book or would like more information please contact us.
