Our faith was rewarded as it really is a gem of a B&B, made all the more welcoming by the owner Richard. He wasn't fazed in the slightest when my husband and I returned rather worse for... More

We only booked one night here which was a mistake, made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived until we departed. The room was beautifully decorated and the attention to detail was superb. Excellent location and the breakfast was superb, we would highly recommend this place. Thanks Rich

We stayed for 2 nights and had a brilliant time. The owners were fantastic and very knowledgable about the area, giving us good ideas for trips out and meals. The breakfasts were lovely as was the hospitality, we will definitely be staying again!

What a lovely hotel, Rich the manager had no problems making sure we had a secure location to park our motorbikes. Only a 10 minute walk from either Bowness or Windermere. Great staff, rooms and location. Will definitely book next year and oh nearly forgot they serve a breakfast to die for. Cheers guys

I would fully recommend this hotel. It's clean and very well decorated and the staff cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable. Even making sure there was access for our motorbikes to be stored in their private garden and providing motorbike covers if we wanted them. The food was delicious. No complaints at all. It was my first stay... More
