Welcome to Ouse Bridge Guesthouse
Ouse Bridge Guest House is a fabulous Four Star Silver Award Guesthouse, set on the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake. We provide a relaxed atmosphere, excellent service, delicious award winning breakfasts and value for money in a stunning and peaceful location. From the moment you walk through our door, you will be warmly welcomed into our home where you will enjoy first class hospitality, food and beautiful scenery.
Perfect Location – plenty to see and do
Ouse Bridge Guest House is ideally located to explore the Lake District and a great place to get away from it all. The Western Fells provide a stunning backdrop and whether you want to go walking, rambling or cycling, horse riding, bird watching, golfing, sailing or fishing, it is all within easy reach. A short drive will take you to either the bustling market town of Keswick, or Cockermouth, the childhood home of William Wordsworth. You can also explore the Solway coast, Hadrian’s Wall or nip across the border to Dumfries and Galloway.
Each April the Osprey have been returning to their nesting place close to Ouse Bridge Guest House. They have been nesting here annually since 2001 and stay until September when they head south to spend the winter in Africa. There are view points close to Ouse Bridge Guest House.
The newly opened Lakes Distillery is just a minute away in the car and you can combine the Distillery tour with a delicious meal in their bistro. Just a few minutes further away is the Lake District Wildlife Park with an array of exotic animals and falconry displays. Click on our ‘Things to do’ tab for further information.
We are also one of the closest guest houses for guests attending wedding functions at Armathwaite Hall and very close to Higham Hall where exciting adult courses are held throughout the year.
Group Bookings Available
Our location and facilities mean we are an ideal venue for groups looking to take over the entire guest house. Whether you are looking for somewhere to meet up with family or friends, or are organising a walking break for a group of people, we are happy to organise a memorable stay tailored to your needs. Menus, mealtimes and activities can all be arranged to suit your requirements.
