Stopped at this lovely bed and breakfast on new years eve, we are a young couple and our friends were staying in Bowness. Very glad that we chose to stay at the Green Gables, beautiful 1800's House with several bedrooms all ensuite, beautiful coving and original features throughout. Very very warm welcome from the owners and the room was perfect... More

Stayed one night to attend a wedding in the lakes. Greeted by the owners who were very friendly, checked us in and showed us to our room. Nice room with an ensuite, very comfy bed! Very close to the local shops and cafes and managed a short wander around before we went to our wedding. Very good location. Breakfast in... More

A strange welcome from the hosts, we were very tired from a long journey and many of the sarcastic comments were lost on us. There are many rooms without en-suite although they are allocated a shower room for just their room and is generally opposite the room, we were thankful to have been given an en-suite room. The room was... More

Stayed one night here for a weekend in the Lake District. Green Gables Guesthouse is in an excellent location in Windermere. Only a 5 minute walk from the train station and conveniently located for the local bars, pubs, restaurants and shops. We were greeted by the very friendly owners on arrival, showed around and told what time breakfast would be... More

We have just returned from the Lake District after our first visit to the area. We chose Green Gables because of it's good value and favourable reviews, it certainly didn't disappoint. Carole, Alex and Gilly were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were cooked to order and were delicious. Our room on the first floor was very comfortable, as was... More

I stayed here for just one night during a 2 day getaway to the Lake District. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean, very comfy and cozy. I really enjoyed the enormous breakfast you get and enjoyed talking with the staff before I left for home on the second day. The guesthouse is within walking distance to... More

Lovely place to stay if you are in Windemere. It was cute, quaint, and absolutely perfect location for what we wanted to do. About 10-15 minute walk from the railway station and 1.5 (20-30) minute walk from the lake (Bowness). We had come off the Brit Movie tours about Beatrix Potter and adored the walk into town for dinner. They... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At Green Gables we have a very simple philosophy - clean, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. We do not provide all the latest gizmos and gadgetry. Nor do we provide "boutique" style toiletries or membership to gyms or spas. If you really want these then please ask at the time of booking and we will adjust the price accordingly. We do not have a long list of rules and regulations and you will find us more like a "home from home" than a stuffy and strict place to stay. ... more   less
