Just got back from a 3 night stay in one of the hideaway rooms and found the whole experience very relaxing. All staff were really helpful but not overpowering. The room was lovely and breakfast choice was really good this was our third visit and we will be returning in the near future.

We had a 2 night stay at the Lake House for my wife's birthday. We arrived early and decided as it had been a long drive to ask if it would be alright to check in early 'no problem' and that was the theme from then on...nothing was to much trouble! The room 'spotless' ....bathroom or wet room I want... More

Booked more or less at the last minute, asked for a room with a lake view (and got one) no problem. Lake house is 2 minutes from Lake Windermere and only a 10 minute walk from the town centre with plenty of car parking space, the staff were excellent, friendly and helpful our room was situated on the ground floor...

We just got back from a 2 night break at Lake House. It was everything we wanted. The room and bathroom were a great size, well looked after and cleaned everyday. We stayed in the Hideaway room number 15, it was lovely! The breakfast was great, continental or cooked, whatever you fancy. The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable... More

Just got back from 4 nights at this fantastic place. Hideaway room 17 was our home for the week, with a view (depending on the weather!) of the lake, it was clean, tidy, comfortable and well kept all week - the bathroom was fantastic! We took advantage of the champagne on arrival, and also had a 'cosy night in' -... More

We have just returned from a two night stay at Lake House. We chose this hotel due to the perfect location near the lake and not too far from town, and also due to it being dog friendly. We stayed in one of the Hideaway Rooms, No.18, which was on the far end which was great as they have big... More

We booked the Lake House for my first ever visit to the lakes as we wanted to stay in a local B&B (vs standard issue hotel). The Lake House looks like it's been converted from a grand family home and has been very nicely done. It also has an annex, The Hideaway, where we stayed. At first, I was a... More

From the lovely helpful staff to the beautiful Hideaway room and the fabulous choice of cooked breakfasts it is impossible to fault this bed and breakfast - though this very description does not do it justice. The view from our bedroom and from the dining room is a gorgeous one of Lake Windermere and probably at its best in Winter... More
