Had a one night stay here. Very friendly owners. Room was nice and the bed really comfortable. They also have a guest lounge which is really nice. The location was really good only a 2min walk into Windermere. Breakfast was really good to. Will definitely stay here again.

We had a short stay for 1 night at Green Gables whilst visiting the area to take part in a night trail run. I think we were given a free upgrade from the room we had provisionally booked to an ensuite room. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable with the added bonus of storage space and a seating area.... More

Wonderful guest house for a break away. Very clean and staff were helpful and friendly. Free parking available on the road outside (limited). Full breakfast was also served and it was beautiful. Was within walking distance of the central lake. Would definitely recommend.

We really enjoyed staying at Green Gables. The room was very clean, the shower nice and hot and the bed comfy. The hosts were so lovely and welcoming and the Cumbrian breakfast was amazing. We would definitely stay again and can't thank the hosts enough for their lovely hospitality during our stay.

Rooms a bit small with no real luggage space. We stayed in the 2nd floor. From the train station, easily walkable. Restaurants are nearby. Breakfast is available rather late from 8.30 am, unless you make a specific request. But the breakfast is truly great - even for vegetarians. Very systematic serving of breakfast in a very posh setting, which overcomes... More

Breaking a long journey here on the way back to London from Scotland, we realised we might arrive later than we hoped because of several traffic jams. We phoned from the M6 to say we might only arrive at 8pm. The proprietor sounded surprised and a bit annoyed that we had bothered him, saying he was expecting us at 8pm... More

atchumak, Owner at Green Gables Guest House, responded to this review

It is unfortunate that the reviewer seems to think that manners, politeness and generally relating to others should only go one way. By their own admission they phoned to say that they would be arriving about 8pm. This had been indicated at the time of the booking and we merely reiterated that fact when they rang. How rude of them... More
