Exactly as advertised. We stayed for 5 days. This is comfortable B & B, very clean, excellent double bed, decent size room, good breakfast (you basically can ask for anything and they will get it for you).A 10 minute walk from the center. The house is being run by a very nice and helpful couple, who help with planning your... More

I stayed in this lovely guest house with two of my friends in mid June. Richard and Paula were great hosts, the breakfast was delicious, the room was clean and tidy and their local knowledge was second to none

I recently went to Windermere on a business trip and stayed at Kirwood for 2 nights. I could not have picked a nicer place. The owners Richard and Paula were most welcoming and were very knowledgeable about the area. My only disappointment was that as I was on a business trip I did not get to see much of the... More

I took my boyfriend here for a romantic break at the weekend. Room was large and airy, with quite high ceilings and a large four poster bed and had everything we needed in it. I think it had been recently decorated, as the owners told me they only took over last year and were in the process of refurbishing. The... More

Had a really enjoyable stay at Kirkwood, a b&b run by a lovely couple. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with everything you need and more. We had lots of advice on where to go and what to see. Overall a really restful and pleasant stay.

I found this B&B on the Lake District National Park website, which had a list of B&Bs, but I didn't have much other information about the spot going in. But even my early interactions with the owners were very pleasant and helpful--they were very happy to accommodate my lack of a phone (I'm American and my international phone wasn't working... More
