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.

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

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
