What a beautiful, traditional, and welcoming place this is. Located 10 minutes walking distance from lake Windermere in one direction and 10 minutes walking distance to Windermere town centre the other. We stayed during June 2013 for 2 nights. Our room was spotless. We had a four poster bed in a more than ample sized room and our en suite... More

Quietly located close to the main Windermere to Bowness, this place is ideally situated for a short walk for both places. We had the top floor bedroom which will soon be refurbished. Richard and Paula were very welcoming. They have only recently taken on this venture and seem ideally fitted to it. Nothing was too much trouble to them. The... More

Richard and Paula are the most welcoming owners a guest could hope for. I am a keen photographer and hill walker! Richard (owner/ professional photographer) knew the lakes like the back of his hand and was incredibly helpful in guiding me to great landscape locations. My stay was second to none, especially the breakfast, perfect everyday. I will definitely be... More

Kirkwood Guest House is a home from home. The location of the guest house is perfect, just a 10 minute walk into the centre of Windermere. The room was lovely and clean. The owners (Richard and Paula) are very welcoming and have a great knowledge of the area. The breakfast was great. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was spacious with a gorgeous four poster bed that was very comfy. The bathroom was tiny but was clean and had a powerful, hot shower. Location was excellent 10min walk to Windermere or Bowness. Only... More
