A very nice and cosy place from the flower at the entrance, the fitting out of the room, the comfortable living room and the lovely breakfast in the morning. Parking on street outside the guesthouse is convenient. Richard & Paula, thanks for your suggestion and kindness to make our stay in Lake District a memorable one.

I recently spent a fantastic weekend staying with Richard & Paula in their lovely guest house. It is immaculately clean and you couldn't ask for more friendly and welcoming hosts and for someone who has never ventured to the Lake District they offered excellent advice on places to visit and best places to walk. Had some lovely walks, ate some... More

We stayed here on our way back from Scotland. After being in chain hotels the Kirkwood was wonderful. We had a warm welcome and the breakfasts really set you up for days out in the lakes. We had a foue year old with us and they recommended suitable walks for us, which helped to make our days in the lakes... More

Booked this place for the parents to say thank you for there support of our wedding. They have had nothing but praise for This guest house. The owners made then very welcome and the hotel was clean and of good standard and they are looking at going here again next year now they have found this little gem.

We ( 2 adults, 2 kids - 14 and 6) stayed at this B&B last week. Was a great find considering many B&Bs were full by the time we started looking. Very clean and run by a friendly family run. Very accomodating with breakfast - eager to include vegetarians as well - offering a cooked vegetarian breakfast. Unusual, that. On... More

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
