Overlooking Englands most romantic lake, Ullswater, and with stunning views this ground floor apartment is sure to appeal to those looking for a romantic escape or for those who simply want to enjoy a holiday where the scenery absorbs you.
Ullswater View could not be more aptly named, the views from the window seat in the lounge to the nearby lake are truly amazing. Wreay Mansion is half a mile from the shores of Ullswater, with numerous walking and cycling opportunities straight from the door. Pooley Bridge is 2 miles away, with a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants and hotels, Keswick is a 20 minute drive and Ambleside and Windermere... are both easily accessible over Kirkstone Pass.The apartment looks southerly over the grounds to the award winning Sharrow Bay Country House Hotel and Ullswater sailing club. The view from the window seat, of the lake with the fells towering above, gives an ever changing scenery to be enjoyed from the comfort of this cosy apartment made for two. Wreay Mansions were converted in 1994 into 9 luxurious apartments, mainly second homes, or for those lucky enough to experience, as holiday homes, we are delighted that the owner has decided to share her ground floor apartment.

We stayed for a long weekend as a treat for my wife's birthday. We had a great time, used the flat as a base and went around the area amazing walks/views the whole stay was perfect especially the flat, very well equipped, warm and a view that looks like you painted it on. we have a eight month old daughter and so needed some home comforts, was brilliant place to stay.

The stay was amazing.whatever is shown in pics of house all is true
If ur going in night just watch out for parking cause it's almost impossible to find.
But I never had such a cute cottage before. If I get a chance I'll definitely go there again.i can't explain how beautiful stay I had.
That cottage was a heaven

The location is superb - views are stunning. Good access for walking and cycling. Apartment was nice - but too many niggles took the edge off. It certainly could be a great place to stay but the were a catalogue of things that needed attention: underfloor heating in bathroom not working; light gone in main room; bed had a tv stand for which there was not enough space in the room; the website kind of implied a log burning stove - but it was electric and with a wierd rattle; and the finally - you have come for a romantic weekend away; you get to the end and you are asked to take your own rubbish home (well advised that there are bins in nearby village which we know is not for household rubbish) As we were not prepared to put in our car journey for the way home we left it there. Surely some alternative could be offered?

Very comfortable accommodation, although there's not much room to move around in the bedroom. Every need catered for, and views to die for! You could sit on the window seat all day just watching the views over the lake change as the clouds move across.
What a view!

Great place to stay. Very comfortable with all amenities. Brilliant location in striking distance of the mountains ye away from the crowds. And what a view - no need to leave the apartment!
Only downside was noisy dog upstairs
