We booked this B&B at short notice - we were looking for relatively cheap overnight accommodation from Scotland to London and though a stop over in the lakes for a night would be a good idea. Well, what a find! a magnificently restored Edwardian house, very tastefully converted for the en-suite with very nice decor. The bed is king sized... More

This was an absolute 'Gem" of a find for my daughter and I. Nestled between Windermere village and Bowness a perfect location and within walking distance of all the lovely local bars and restaurants , two yummy eateries to try are the Angel Inn.....great for lunch and Little Italy for great cocktails and delish Pizzas in the evening. The B... More

I booked this so called 'luxury' B&B for two nights for a romantic break with my partner (after reading positive reviews on Trip Advisor) although it turned out to be a disaster from start to finish. Upon our arrival to Oakthwaite we were greeted by one of the owners after ten minutes of knocking on the front door. He advised... More

Went to the lakes to propose to my fiancee, the hosts were briliant especially with the knowledge of the area so we knew where to go on such short notice. The whole experience was cosy and felt really comfortable there.

A fantastic B & B with a very welcoming host. It has been decorated to a top standard. Breakfast was available in a lovely little cafe in the town which was lovely. Would definitely recommend. Thank you very much for making us feel welcome. My only improvement that I would like to see would be some lovely big bath towels!... More

My friend and I recently visited Oakthwaite for 2nights and we genuinely couldn't say any more positive about our experience. The guesthouse is set in beautifully kept grounds ideally situated between Windermere and Bowness. The room was immaculate and very cosy but the 'pièce de résistance' was the separate bathroom with roll-top bath and shower cubicle (fantastic shower) which really... More

My Wife and I initially struggled to find the hotel, as there is no typical signage outside, however once we arrived were delighted with our choice. Deborah makes you very welcome and you feel like you are sharing the house rather than a paying guest. The room was lovely, very spacious and plenty of wardrobe/storage areas, unlike some higher star... More

Just arrived home from a 2 night stay at Oakthwaite. Great place to stay after a long day of travelling and walking. Room was so comfy and clean and external private bathroom was exactly the same. Beautiful decor all around the house and well furnished all round too. We were shown to our room by a young lad & although... More

Had the most amazing two nights away. As soon as we arrived we were greeted and noticed that the registration plate had fallen off the car on the drive down! But nothing was too much trouble, a cardboard registration plate was waiting for us to put on the car. The room was beautiful and I can't wait to come back... More

We stayed here for two nights. Choose it because of the decor. Location is good with travellers with cars. As it is off the main road, it is very quiet & we can sleep well. We didn't have breakfast in house as they only serve continental breakfast. They offered us to go to Monties, a tea house at Bowness for... More
