  • "The accommodation does offer a superb lake side setting."

    However the owner has not reinvested in the property. The hot water in the bedroom sink does not work at all. The fridge does not work so we had to use the owners fridge in the owners garage outside. Only two of the four rings on the gas cooker worked and the electric ignitions did not work on these either so matches had to be used. The connection to the in-house WiFi did not work on both our mobiles saying a "authenticity problem arosed". This was known to the owner so its not a new problem. Getting any other WiFi in this area is impossible. If this was my apartment for hire all these faults would be remidied the very next day. Its very poor and its a shame as this could be a really good holiday apartment.

    Patricia was a very welcoming host. Couple of things would make it even better : A towel rail next to the bath The wifi could be more reliable.

  • "We have just returned from a lovely weeks holiday at Rampsbeck Lodge."

    Having just read a complaint about the property before setting off on our holiday, we did feel a bit apprehensive about what to expect. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the accommodation. We always read the description and view the photographs of the property before booking a vacation so we were aware that the decor and furnishings weren't contemporary and that the bath was in the bedroom. However, the lodge was comfortable and cosy and well kitted out. The selling point of this property is undoubtedly the view over the lake: it was superb just being able to sit in the apartment and take in the beauty of the surroundings. The gardens are also magnificent and the dogs loved running around down to the lake and picking up pine cones. The owner, Patricia, is a lovely person and very helpful. There are lots of footpaths in the area and the local villages and towns are dog friendly.

  • "Please see below more information regarding our complaint about Rampsbeck Lodge."

    reference 183263 Arrival 11 Sept 1. Lock on only door to property broken, unable to secure door. Owners son came to fix it. 2 Sat 12 Sept Clothes in wardrobe damp. Decided to give the benefit of the doubt. Got showered. Not a proper en suite, bath and shower in corner of windowless bedroom which I believe is illegal. Used extractor fan but steam obviously still got into bedroom. 3. Sunday 13 Sept. Clothes most certainly damp when we got out of bed. Had to bring everything out of bedroom into living room, including bedding. Texted owner to inform her, she advised she had a dehumidifier she would set up for us as we were out for the day. Owner also handled all our clothes and hung them in boiler cupboard. She advised us to leave dehumidifier on all night and to open bedroom doors, which we had done anyway. Owner visited us when we arrived back.asked us if we had any ideas how to make things better as she did not know what else to do. I asked if she had had complaints before, she did not answer. Phoned Sykes to inform them there was an issue. Could not sleep due to noise if dehumidifier. Emptied 2.5 pints from it at bedtime, it had been on approx 11hours. As I am asthmatic and my symptoms were increasing we felt we had no choice but to leave the property the next day, luckily we secured probably the only hotel room left in the area at a considerable extra cost. 3 Monday 14 Sept. Packed up and left the property. Texted owner to inform her and rang Sykes to inform yourselves. General observations. 1. Dirty glassware left by previous occupants. 2. Not covid secure. The owner had left half used toiletries in bathroom. Books had simply been moved inside one of the wardrobes, not removed. I work for the NHS and you will appreciate I was desperate for a good break. I cannot allow my health to be compromised as I am needed in my employment. I am extremely surprised that you allow this property to continue in your portfolio. There have clearly been negative reviews about the damp on other internet sites and I am curious as to whether other occupants have raised this matter. I would appreciate a full investigation into this matter and appropriate recompense arranged.

  • "Patricia the owner of rampgill is really nice & helpful."

    The flat is comfortable, the views out of the front window are of the lake at the end of the lawn. Could not be better. We were a little ristricted because of CORVID 19, didn't want to catch or cause, but we enjoyed a most relaxing week. One small criticism, my partner found the bed uncomfortable. I slept fine. Thanks would go again

The property

Set in the village of Watermillock on the shores of Ullswater, lies this attached property, Rampsbeck Lodge.

Set in two acres of private gardens and offering marvellous lake and mountain views, this lodge enjoys an unbeatable location which would appeal to any couple looking for a rejuvenating retreat to the lakes.

The open-plan living area houses a corner sofa with plenty of room to stretch out and recover from your days walk, whilst the compact yet well-equipped kitchen has everything needed to help prepare your meals.

The bedroom has a double bed and a bath enclosure with a shower over, as well as basin and large wardrobe with vanity unit.

Perhaps the highlight of the property is the two acres of private gardens with lawns dropping to the lake shore and private jetty, offering sublime views of Ullswater and towering fells.

Follow the footpath around the lake shore and uncover an abundance of natural beauty along the way before returning for a glass of wine amidst this lovely setting.

The lake offers a number of outdoor activities, from sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, fishing or perhaps you would like to sit back and take a lake cruise on one of the steamers.

Within a short walk there are several eating houses and pubs which are perfect if you don’t fancy cooking one night.

The towns of Penrith and Keswick are easily reached and offer a number of amenities from independent shops to fascinating exhibitions and art galleries.

A picturesque location in the breath-taking Lake District National Park.

About the location


Pooley Bridge 2.5 miles; Glenridding 6.2 miles; Penrith 8.5 miles.

The elevated scattered village of Watermillock runs parallel to the main road alongside Ullswater Lake and is mainly a farming community. Just 2.5 miles away is Pooley Bridge with its array of amenities which sits on the northern shore of the lake in the Lake District National Park. The name Pooley originated due to the forming of a large pool, which was left by the fast flowing River Eamont. Pooley Bridge has many traditional inns and tempting tea rooms, plus the Ullswater Steamers depart from the village, from where a tranquil cruise down the lake to the villages of Glenridding and Howtown can be enjoyed. Glenridding (meaning glen overgrown with bracken) is a small tourist village with a range of local shops, cafes and restaurants. There are numerous walks with breathtaking views nearby, plus a short walk up to Dunmallard Hill reveals fascinating Iron-Age remains, whilst the towns of Penrith and Keswick are within driving distance. Watermillock is an ideal base for a cottage holiday stay in the stunning Lake District.
