We visited for my girlfriends birthday, the house was nicely decorated and well situated just outside of the town centre. A short walk and you are at the "shops". We where in room 1 which had a four poster bed and a spa bath! The bed was very comfortable and large enough to spread out. The shower was good and... More

Stayed in the attic room for two nights and couldn't fault the place. We arrived later than expected on the Friday night due to traffic but Mick was more than welcoming, showing us to our room and recommending a local pub for a late night bite (The Brookside). The bed was very comfy and the room was absolutely delightful with... More

This is the second year we have been to this bed and breakfast and it's lovely very clean and welcoming the hosts are very down to earth and breakfast it very nice and we will be returning next year . Location is spot on also. And the spa bath was just what we needed after hiking in the hills.

Ideal location, clean and tidy but in need of some redecoration, Disappointed with the breakfast offer with it being mainly fried food unless you want continental. Staff really friendly. Car park is hidden away down the side road between the lodge and the back of he church - be careful not to miss it.

Loved our 2 night stay here, and its location was ideal for us! We booked a room with a 4 poster bed, which was wonderfully comfy! The room was a great size with everything we needed including free wifi, which is always a bonus! The bathroom was en suite, with a fab spa bath which we used after spending the... More

We had a 2 night stay at Ivythwaite Lodge whilst taking a short break in The Lakes. This is a great B&B, really friendly hosts, a great welcome, really comfortable bed and a fantastic full English breakfast. Within easy walking distance of the centre of Windermere and well away from the horror of Bowness! We'll certainly be using this establishment... More

Me and my Fiancée stayed here last year and it was lovely, surprised with a big bath and cooked breakfast every morning. Treated lovely and great value for what it is, was able to afford it as two students.

We have stayed here before 3 years ago. It is still wonderful, excellent attention to details, good quality food and a perfect location. We had the attic room (5) as we were so pleased last time. Enormous spa bath and shower, TV and fridge and free WIFI. Very quiet at night and an easy walk to Windermere or Bowness. Would... More

Spent the weekend here. Greeted by Mick who was very welcoming and friendly. Room was clean and presented beautifully. Spa bath was a bonus. Amazing breakfast which I'll definitely be missing. Ideal location ~10min walking distance from the lake.
