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.

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

My partner requested champagne for the first night and the owners were so kind to get us some and chill it for us. The bed was... More

On the back of some great reviews on TA we booked this for a long weekend and phoned up to arrange to stay in the Great Gable room as it looked large and spacious on the website. We were met by Mick, the owner, who was friendly and very easy going. Didn't even ask for credit card , car details... More

My husband and I stayed at the Cranny between Christmas and New Year. The pictures don't do it justice as there is much more space than I expected. Situated close to shops, bars and restaurants the Cranny is ideal for couples or families with young children. The living area is a really good size with TV/ DVD player and a... More

I decided to treat my Girlfriend for her birthday by taking her to Ivythwaite Lodge. Quite simply, she loved it. The room was fabulous, the breakfasts were truly something worth getting out of the lovely bed for and the hosts were among the nicest and most friendly people we have met. It was clean, tidy, nicely appointed and had a... More
