4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The owner nicely upgraded our room once it became apparent that my husband would bump his head in our teeny 3rd floor space reached by increasingly narrow and steep stairs. Convenient on site parking. Very small bathroom even in better room.

Had a short break away to Windermere and stayed at the Holly Lodge. It was everything we expected it to be and a brilliant base. Dianne, the owner (she also runs it on her own!), was extremely pleasant and really friendly and up for a chat. We stayed in a deluxe double room which was decorated beautifully and had everything...

This was a lovely b&b. ideal location, only a couple of minutes drive to bowness centre ( taxi £3.50, cheap enough). after reading some reviews AFTER booking, we were a little worried about the distribution warehouse down the street, but we had a room on the front of the b&b and didn't hear a thing, so that shouldn't be something...

From the moment we arrived, I knew the 'Holly Lodge' was the right choice. Dianne, the owner was friendly & informative, whilst running a very busy, clean and more than comfortable B&B. The room was well equipped, well presented and the chocolate on my pillow each night, just had that extra touch. The breakfast each morning was always delicious with... More

Gorgeous room, love the Laura Ashley decor and individual design and finishing touches. Lovely new bathroom, thought of everything. High quality furnishings, very comfortable and spacious. We had a deluxe double with views over the fells. Breakfast lovely and friendly welcome. Highly recommended. Please book direct as the owner told us booking sites take a significant percentage for doing nothing!

I phoned on Monday 28 July 2014, all the dates I wanted were fully booked however Diane did manage to find two nights for me, the only problem was I had to be able to leave the following day. After making a few changes to my daughters work schedule I called Diane back and accepted the booking. My daughter is... More

We stayed in room 4 for one night and this place is just like the photos, stunning. Everything is immaculate, Dianne was a lovely host and checked us in straight away. The Guest House is a short walk from Windermere centre and really handy for heading out for dinner etc. Breakfast was really tasty and again Dianne was really attentive,... More

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) enjoyed our stay at Holly Lodge! We stayed in a family suite that had two twin beds in one room with a queen bed in the second room. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Dianne was friendly and went out of her way to help us! The breakfast was delicious and... More
