My girlfriend & I have just returned from a one night stay in the Ranji room, the free-standing bath adds to the feeling of luxury & the under floor heating in the separate bathroom is a nice touch. Situated bang in the middle of Windermere & Bowness on the main road meant a short walk in either direction if you... More

I booked the Boundary as a weekend treat for my boyfriends birthday over Halloween weekend. I spoke with the owner beforehand as I couldn't decide which room to book as they were all so lovely! In the end I chose ranji - the room with the roll top bath. Our entire stay was fantastic and the breakfast on both days... More

This is a lovely boutique B&B in the lake. Ideal if you want to walk up to Windermere or down to Bowness. The owner their was what made the stay extra special and of course the pancakes and maple syrup.

Fabulous boutique B&B, warm & welcoming atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble for Steve & his staff to ensure we had a fabulous weekend break away. If you are looking for an absolute gem of a place to stay then this is the place for you. Breakfast was absolutely yummy too, best black pudding we've ever tasted.

We stayed in the Hobbs room. Really big room with a 4 poster bed. I don't normally go for 4 posters as they are usually covered in chintzy fabric which I don't like. But the decor and fabrics in this room were contemporary and subtle, so much so that I didn't really notice the 4 poster style bed. Great blackout... More

We booked really last minute, so were surprised they had rooms available. Rooms are lovely, well furnished and clean. Very friendly staff and couldn't have done enough for us. Good variety of breakfast options from salmon to a full english. Owners where away and left son in charge, he was lovely, very friendly and welcoming. Anything wasn't too much trouble.... More

We were meeting up with friends for a few days who were over from New Zealand and we all stayed at The Boundary. We had a room on the first floor at the rear overlooking the rooftops of Bowness. The room was quirky and spotlessly clean with a good selection of coffee and teas with a supply of fresh 'real'... More

We stayed here in July for my birthday and booked the Raj room. Having stayed in the Lake District on previous occasions we were really impressed at the quality of accommodation for the price we paid. Steve's hotel is modern & luxurious and I was particularly impressed with attention to detail, such as the green slate door knobs. The bed... More
