Welcome to Old Water View Restaurant, Bar and Accommodation in Patterdale, The Lake District
Situated in the delightful village of Patterdale, and surrounded by some of Lakeland's most magnificent scenery, Old Water View has been welcoming visitors for over 100 years.
We have a fully licensed Restaurant & Bar, serving quality locally sourced food where possible and a fine selection of wines and beers including our own Real Ales and Lager.

Accommodation is offered on a Dinner, Bed & Breakfast basis. Unfortunately, we do not offer "room only" or "B&B only". We have six superb guest bedrooms available, all with excellent facilities and magnificent views of the surrounding area. Prices quoted are for the B&B portion of your stay and all other meals are chosen and priced from our extensive restaurant menu. Please see our accommodation page for more details. In addition we have extensive gardens, and a range of other guest facilities. We also have ample private guest car parking space available.
We are situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park, in Patterdale close to Ullswater and Helvellyn, and within easy reach of Windermere, Ambleside and all the main towns and villages of the Lakes. Ideal for hill walkers, the sailing crowd, or those simply looking to relax and unwind and soak up the views. We are also located on the famous Coast to Coast walking route, and indeed Old Water View was a favourite both with Alfred Wainwright, and with Julia Bradbury, who visited whilst filming her recent Coast 2 Coast series.
