The room was warm, clean, quiet and ideal for a weekend break. The couple were very accommodating and the breakfast was lovely and plenty of it. Free WiFi. Location was excellent for Windermere...

Stayed for two nights and had a warm welcome from the owners, first impressions not good as the room was dated and smelt peculiar due to this we left the window open for the entire stay. The location was great and the food was reasonable. The owners were helpful and friendly. What we didn't realise is that it is a... More

Stayed 3 nights with our adult niece in the 2 bed upstairs apartment at the back of the lodge. It was very clean. Couldn't fault it. Both bedrooms were spacious. Kitchen small but more than adequate, had everything we needed to self cater.Perfect for the three of us. Friendliest host on our whole 6 week trip. Easy stroll into Windermere.... More

Just spent 3 nights in the upstairs apartment, couldn't fault it. We were welcomed and shown around and all in all were very pleased with the facilities. An earlier review mentioned that towels were not supplied - they are provided on request - we were each given a bath towel and hand towel.
