Delightful accommodation which was made even better by such friendly and personable staff. The breakfast is amazing, the staff know your name and take the time to speak with you about your stay. Richard is one of the best hosts you could hope for. Thank you to all at St John Lodge for a great stay.

Have not long since returned from our stay and would love to be back already. Had a fab time, rooms were to high standard. The staff were great, really made you feel welcome and that nothing was too much hassle. Breakfasts were amazing with plenty of options including a wide gluten free selection which was a big plus for me.... More

Hi Lucy, thank you for the kind compliments. People do seem to like the breakfasts! We do get a lot of guests returning and if you'd like to visit us again, it's best to book direct and I can discount the room for you. Kind regards, Rich More

A really enjoyable stay at this very welcoming B&B. The breakfast was of high quality, and was served by pleasant young ladies who made you feel welcome. The owner ( Rich ) was very helpful and informative, and seems to have assembled a winning team in a top B&B.

What a wonderful stay, from start to finish Rich made us feel so welcome and the breakfast was amazing. We have stayed in the Lakes many times and this was a genuine treat, the rooms are modern and clean. Great relaxing atmosphere. Excellent location within easy walking distance of both Windermere and Bowness. Definitely will be staying again.

Rich and all the staff are so friendly, he the best host I've ever met in all the B&B I've stayed in UK. Breakfast is awesome and lots of choice. Location is also nice, 15 min walk to Windermere station, 20 min walk to Bonesss pier.

Fab fab fab!!!! Love everything about the place! Perfect location, halfway between Windermere and Bowness. The new owner, Rich, and the staff, Lisa and Christina, are great people, really friendly and welcoming! They have the place running like a well oiled machine, and nothing is too much trouble. Clean, fresh rooms, decent size bathrooms, and the breakfast was fabulous! Everything... More
