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.

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.
