We had an excellent stay in the hotel in Feb and decided to return with family to the adjoining self catering cottage - The Cranny. The cottage has a double bedroom with extra child's bed. Lovely bathroom and open plan sitting room/kitchen area with sofa bed. Spotlessly clean and cosy with lots of home comforts sometimes not found with self... More

Really enjoyed staying at the Ivythwaite Lodge. We stayed on the top floor, for four nights. Room was extremely clean, light and bright. Owners were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was always good. Within a short walking distance of all local facilities. Would definately recommend. Thank you. Trefor and Vivienne - Eastbourne.

I would recommend this place to anybody wanting to stay in Bowness or Windermere. The rooms are very tastefully decorated to a very high standard, spotlessly clean and very up to date. The double spa bath was a welcome luxury to help you relax after a lot of walking. There are lots of wonderful restaurants to choose from in the... More

Thanks to Wendy and Mick for a really lovely stay - they were so accommodating even when I was accidentally late down for breakfast. I had read on here that Mick was a bit ill-tempered and I was nervous about meeting him. But I have to correct that particular reviewer - what rubbish - Mick is a lovely, lovely bloke.... More

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

Just returned from a two night stay at Ivythwaite. First impressions were excellent, we stayed in the loft room which is huge, which also had a spa/jacuzzi bath easily big enough for two. It does state in the information pack not to add too much soap etc to the jacuzzi, I put in a splash of shower gel and soon... 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
