This was our first visit to Windermere for many years and we couldn't have picked a better place. The Nook is tucked on the side of the main hotel and has been beautifully refurbished by Mick and Wendy. There's a lot of space for a couple with generously sized kitchen diner, lounge and bedroom. The location is fantastic - away... More

Just back from two night stay, the room was outstanding. The hosts Mick and Wendy were so friendly . Had a good few chats. The breakfast was the best we have had in a B & B. I cant praise this hotel enough. Thank you for making our stay so perfect.

Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice, served in a lovely room with log burner and some nice music. Perfect! Ivythwaite is positioned between windermere and... More

We stayed for two nights in the attic room, which was better than expected as it's huge, full of character, and very comfortable. We took full advantage of the big spa bath. Importantly at this time of year, the whole place is warm and the welcome equally warm. Breakfasts are delicious, and the quiet location is a short walk from... More

A very warm welcome from mick and Wendy, phoned us to say our room was ready early if we wanted it. Great room nice and warm with a huge sleigh bed and spa tub in the bathroom, lovely log fire in the breakfast room and a fantastic breakfast. Shame to only stay one night, so we will definitely be back.... More

Lovely b&b, rooms are of a great standard and feel clean and comfy with an air of class. Whirlpool bath is large enough for two and a great asset. Mick and Wendy lovely hosts. Loved the choice of different breakfasts as I am not a fan of the 'full English' every day. We had pancakes, omelettes, smoked Salmon and there... More

My wife and I have just returned fro a 2 night stay. The rooms were comfortable and warm, we stayed in the Pink room. No problems parking and the distance from the main shopping area was just about right. The food and the welcome were excellent and I would recommend staying here.
