  • Such a serene little lake. A lot quieter than Windermere. I will definitely be returning next year. x 
  • Very quiet and lovely lake. You need to go the lake here and enjoy it no matter the weather. Just so so lovely there it really makes you relax 
  • Ullswater is a very scenic lake that, despite it's size, has very few boats using it. The Ullswater Steamers sail the length of the lake all year round giving excellent views of the surrounding hills....  more »
