Lovely pleasant hotel with very friendly hosts. Great breakfast and ideally suited between Bowness and Windermere. Very interested to see you are enjoying your stay and helpful with tourist advice. Very clean room with a pretty view of the woods and stream.

My husband and I have just returned from a fab stay at Glencree. It is ideally situated between Windermere and Bowness and is easy to walk either way. The room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was excellent. A lot of information on the surrounding area, walks, transport, etc was given by Kim and this was also really appreciated. Would...

Lovely b&b, very polite hosts, happy to provide you with tourist information! We had a lovely big room over looking stream, very clean and comfortable. Breakfasts nice also. Couldn't fault this little gem! Fab location, rooms a little dated, but hey didn't bother us it was comfortable and spotlessly clean!! Loved the stream running alongside the b&b! Beautiful

well presented home and comfortable bedroom with excellent choice of breakfast and nicely served to order. Owner had good knowledge of the area and gave helpful touring advice. Location perfect to see the lakes and a short walk to various pubs all providing local beers on draft and bottle.

We stayed at Glencree for 2 nights our room was very comfortable , breakfast was very enjoyable. The drive suggested by our host at Glencree was absolutely terrific across the Honister pass via Keswick and Grasmere. We ended a great day with a delicious meal and local ale at the Troutbeck hotel.

We stayed here from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th. The gentleman who showed us to our room and served our breakfasts was really nice and pleasant, we didn't see the two lady owners. The bedroom and ensuite bathroom (no shower) had very dated decor and the furniture was out-dated too..but it was very clean. My only niggle was as a... More

Comfortable and clean guest house with a warm welcome, all needs catered for and very enjoyable breakfasts. A great location betwixt Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere. A short 10-minute walk to each.

Just spent three nights here to recover from our sons wedding in London. The room was spotless and well kept as were all the facilities. The breakfast was plentiful and tailored just how we wanted it. The location between Windermere and Bowness is excellent making both places easily accessible on foot. Thoroughly recommend this B&B to anyone needing a reasonably... More

We stayed here for 1 night when we took a random trip down to Windemere. We got shown the rooms available before we made our choice, so we picked the bigger room. Everything was clean and comfortable, I loved the sound of running water outside! Breakfast in the morning was fantastic, fresh fruit, cereals and juice were out to help... More
