Just come back after 1 week at The Nook. Both Mick and Wendy made us very welcome as soon as we arrived. The Nook which attached to the Cranny and the Lodge was a delight. Very clean and homely. Area very quiet and within a short walk into Windermere. All the facilities were first class. The Nook is a self... More

Stayed in The Great Gable room for 4 nights in August 2014. Quite simply had the most wonderful time staying at Ivythwaite Lodge. Mick made us feel very welcome and Wendy's breakfasts were always cooked to perfection and delivered with a smile. We were made to feel like we were at home. Brilliant room, absolutely ginormous spa bath which was... More

We have stayed at the Cranny, a self catering cottage annex to the main b&b, several times. We love everything about it. The location is perfect, just a short walk from both Windermere and bowness. It is in a back road so it's extremely quiet. It is very nicely decorated and always spotless. A good selection of DVD and some... More

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
