My husband and I stayed for one night in this beautiful guesthouse. When we first booked in I felt the host was a bit rushed but this may have been down to us arriving later than we first anticipated. I was catered for as I have to have gluten free food and this was much appreciated. Unfortunately, we didnt sleep... More

Just home from a 2 night stay! A real home from home made very welcome on arrival. Very clean and tidy and good choice of breakfast. I would highly recommend this guest house. Well situated between Windermere and Bowness

Really thick curtains so you can have a good sleep in too if you wish!So lots of quiet in Glencree and a Great breakfast!!... More

We had a very short stay this month at Windermere and decided upon Glencree after going through the reviews here. I must say it was a wise decision as you need to be choosy while visiting as a family especially with kids. The hosts, Kim & Helen are wonderful and help you in all possible ways to make your stay...

Decor may be a little dated but the hotel is very good. Rooms are cleaned every day are are very comfortable. Breakfast is excellent, with everything from fresh fruit, cereal, juice, tea, coffee and an excellent full English. Staff are very friendly and always willing to give advice on places to visit and things to do. We had a room... More

We stayed at Glencree over the Easter bank holiday weekend. The B&B is conveniently located between Windermere and Bowness and you can easily walk to both places. We arrived there on Thursday and were given one of the rooms overlooking the little river (it was pleasantly quiet during the night). The room was impeccably clean and comfortable. Breakfast was varied... More

Booked to stay at Glencree after it was recommended to us. B&B is on the main road between Windermere and Bowness, but we found it to be quiet during the night and very well placed for visiting the area. Room was very clean with a comfortable bed and amazing hot fast shower. Excellent breakfast - and plenty of it. Hosts... More

Owners were very pleasant and we booked an upgrade room so we could check in at 11.00 which we duly did...this allowed a full day to explore beautiful Bowness and the lake area etc. Accommodation was nice and spacious, large bed but only a shower, bit of a letdown as we both prefer a nice hot bath. Shower was very... More

We stayed for 2 nights in November as we had already booked to go on Boxing Day for 2 nights so we thought we would check it out very nice place and the owners welcoming with a good hearty breakfast. A stream runs below the house which is lovely. We are very much looking forward to going back.
