Last minute visit . Stayed at many places in Windermere but this b&b is really wonderful. Lovely people, lovely breakfast in a fab location. If you want a much better than average place to stay in a wonderful location then this is the place to stay. We will be back and thanks for a great 4 nights

My partner and I very much enjoyed staying here. We preferred a room on the ground floor and I think their best room in on the ground floor - enough space for a 4 poster, 2 chairs and a spacious bathroom with corner bath. We were made very welcome and such a nice touch to have tea and cake offered... More

Between Bowness and Windermere this excellent guest house is clean, beautifully renovated and very welcoming. Breakfast is deliciously home cooked and there is an obvious attention to detail. A top quality guest house in a beautiful area of the Lakes District.

Guest house has nice character, clean and fresh. Owner is very friendly and leaves you alone to enjoy your holiday, but will help if you require. Rooms are clean, really nice and overall feel is great. Breakfast is cooked to a good standard, arrives promptly. I would recommend this guest house and would stay again, its a lovely place and...

Having read good reviews before we travelled, we were looking forward to clean rooms and good food. Not only were we not disappointed but pleasantly surprised by the quality and high standards in all aspects of the accommodation and service provided. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with little extras like the use of a fridge to keep wine etc cool... More

We spent last weekend here and really enjoyed our stay. We were welcomed by Heather with tea and cake and shown to our very comfortable room. The breakfasts were excellent and it was just a 10 minute walk into either Windermere or Bowness. It was lovely to be able to leave the car and go for a nice meal in... More
