I had booked a two night mid week stay for June 9th. I was greeted by Frank who immediately made me feel welcome, it was like he was welcoming a friend to his house. My double room was a nice size, very clean & had a feel of being in bedroom in a friends house, not a strangers b&b. Proper... More

We were at Frank and Doreen's College House for 4 nights this last May. We enjoyed it very much. The B&B is in the centre of Windermere, a 25 min amble to the lakeside at Bownes. There are numerous eating places (all a bit on the pricey side) a mere stone's throw away. The room and bathroom were small but... More

It's people that make a place and Frank and Doreen made this place and our stay in Windermere PERFECT for us. Would love to stay again in the very comfortable large well equipped sleep 3 ensuite room2. Large spotless bathroom complete with assorted toiletries and the huge hot bubble bath was nice after rowing on Windermere. The breakfast menu was... More

A lovely b and b in a good central spot in windermere (not bowness). Private parking available. Room was clean and comfortable, not massive but had a few extras, like hot chocolate and lots of toiletries.The view from our window was amazing, over the lake to the langdales. Breakfast was a gastronomic treat and set usbup for the day.

This was a last minute booking through Laterooms.com and so I had to make do with limited accommodation availability and I was not disappointed. This is a small, homely gust house personally supervised and run by the owners. The facilities were very good - I was in one of the attic rooms up two flights of stairs. The breakfast was... More

We are 2 couples from Australia who stayed in the two upstairs attic rooms that were clean, comfortable, albeit very small, but manageable with some juggling. Doreen and Frank supplied some extras in the rooms, including literature for the area. they were great friendly hosts. Doreen cooks and chats to you as she prepares food in the country style kitchen..... More

I booked three rooms in this b&b for two couples and a single. The rooms were ok but the rooms in the attic area had terrible small bathrooms that really need updating. The breakfast was great and we also had the whole place to ourselves for the two nights we were there. Peking was at a premium and as we... More

The welcome was warm and the breakfast very good. Breakfast at 8.30 (no leeway!) We had to climb up to an attic room that was really cramped with sloping roofs which were ideally positioned to bang your head on...which we did. And the view was the rear yard. The little furnishings there was room for were too old and worn.... More
