The proprietors were friendly and helpful, even providing a lovely packed lunch (with box and cool blocks) for our party of four people on our way to an early afternoon wedding. We enjoyed staying for two nights with pleasant accommodation, car parking and lovely breakfast with generous variety of fresh fruit. Location was very convenient between Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere and... More

We booked this guesthouse for 2 nights as part of our trip to the Lake District. We had a warm welcome on arrival, and the hosts were very helpful in terms of showing us places to eat and helping advise with our activities. The bedroom was comfortable, although the bathroom was quite dark, even with the light on. This was... More

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

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...

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
