We have been staying at Greenriggs every year for the last 10 years or so and as such it feels like our home away from home. We find it to be a perfect base since after spending a day exploring the Lakes, Windermere offers a wide range of restaurants and pubs to eat dinner in - all within walking distance.... More

We booked very last minute after a struggle to find anywhere that would accept a well-behaved 2 year old. We had a family room which consisted of a double and bunk beds. The room was average sized and spotlessly clean. Could do with a bit of modernisation maybe... Joe was very friendly and welcoming. He makes a great breakfast, served... More

Our two nights at Greenriggs B & B was very pleasant. Our host, Joe, was always jovial and ever ready with good travel tips. The room was clean and just right for our stay. Breakfast comprised a selection of cereals and muesli to start followed by an appropriately sized English breakfast. It was served from 8.15 - 9, which was... More

We stayed here for one night in July of this year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This B&B was great value for money - a double room with breakfast included for £60 on a Saturday night. The room we had didn't have an en-suite but the bathroom was just opposite and was only shared with one other room so it... More

Our host at Greenrigs, Joe, was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. It is a short walk to Windermere town centre and a twenty to twenty five minute walk to Lake Windermere and Bow ness. Breakfast was cooked to request and excellent. We stayed for three nights and the six of us occupied three rooms. We... More

This is a nice little place to stop. As a party of 3 couples we enjoyed our stay at this BnB. It's very clean and the rooms and bathrooms are nice. Breakfast is good and fresh and Jo keeps it all running smoothly. The only issue was 1 couple slept in two single beds as there weren't enough double rooms... More

I mentioned this B&B in a review that i previously did for the Oakdene hotel. so i felt it needed its own. I will keep it short and sweet, i found this B&B a lovely little place to stay, after the drama of staying at the Oakdene the night before Greenrigs was like a breath of fresh air. Very polite...

As its caption suggests..its indeed a nice place to stay. Staffs are really good and well mannered. we were quite surprised that our host remembered what we would like for breakfast the next day and saw to it that it was served. Rooms are neat and clean and location wise too not bad, having a park nearby was a great... More

We stayed 2 nights with two children (11yrs and 5yrs). Joe lovely and couldn't be more helpful. Lovely and quiet, central and ideal for what we wanted. Room very clean, comfortable and very fast wi fi! Breakfast lovely, staff very friendly. Would certainly visit again. Thanks for a lovely weekend!

We were only able to stay for one night and found Greenriggs to be adequate for our needs and good vale for Windermere. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was fine. We would have happily stayed longer had we been able to.
