Driving up to this beautiful house, I knew immediately it was going to be a wonderful place to stay. I was greeted by Wendy and Mick who welcomed me to their cosy and beautiful house. The whole place is filled with tastefully selected pieces of furniture, ornaments and inspiring art. Our room was gorgeous - a period bed, full size... More

From the moment you arrive at Ivythwaite Lodge, you feel relaxed. Walking in the door you are met by the lovely Wendy and Mick as they welcome you to their home. The rooms are gorgeous - each one with a period bed, fluffy duvet and pillows and a spa bath. The attention to detail in each room with it's period... More

What a wonderful little B&B, but dont be fooled by the word little! We stayed in the attic room which was very spacious, the room was clean and fresh, light and airy. It may seem like a simple thing but a small fridge is provided and tea and coffee making facilities are great when you fancy a cuppa after a... More

On arrival we were welcomed by Mick. He showed us to our room and after a lovely chat he left us to admire our surroundings. We stayed in the attic room again. The place is very welcoming. The room is spotless. The bed is huge and comfy. The spa bath a fantastic bonus. Situated a short walk from Bowness and... More

My wife and I stayed the Ivythwaite Lodge last month for a couple of nights. We thoroughly enjoyed Windermere and wished we spent at least another day there. Ivywaite Lodge played an important part in making our Windermere trip memorable. It is a beautifully maintained cottage. Well located in a peaceful and quiet neighbourhood, yet only a short walk away... More

Ivythwaite is a "gem" of a hotel and ideally situated for Windermere and Bowness. I stayed there for 2 nights last weekend with my husband Peter and we were not disappointed with the accommodation, and service we received from Mick and Wendy. I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor before I booked, and can concur with the excellent reviews... More

Just back from a short stay here in the Nook. Excellent place, clean, quite, tasteful decor and handy for Windermere. We came by train and it was easy to get around. Mick was very helpful. Have been to the Lakes many times but would rate this place ten out of ten.

Thanks for the review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your short stay in the Nook cottage. If you wish to stay again then search for the Nook and Cranny in Windermere and go onto our cottage website where you will find the cheapest rate without any hidden commission charges. Mick and Wendy More

Me and my girlfriend have just returned from a two night stay at the Ivythwaite Lodge. The owner/host Mick was very friendly from start to finish and made us feel very welcome. The location of the lodge is ideally placed as both Bowness and Windermere are a short walk away. We stayed in the Helvelyn room which was a good... More
