My wife and I enjoyed an overnight stay at St John's Lodge en route from Telford to Gretna Green. It was an ideal location with good parking at the door and a comfortable walk to local restaurants. We received a warm welcome from our host, Sue. Our room was of adequate size with a very clean en suite bathroom with... More

Room very clean and comfortable. Only thing missing were sockets to charge phones, camera, etc (only 1 double for kettle, TV and everything else). Breakfasts good with lots and lots of choice. Slightly early last serve at 9:15 however. Might just be me as I'm used to shift work/late starts though. Ideally positioned for both Bowness and Windermere. Parking not... More

Another trip to the lovely Lake District and stayed in the same B+B I always go to now. Its so nice and friendly and the breakfasts are great, particularly if you are veggie like me there is so much choice. A really lovely room too.

Lovely welcoming hotel... We spent two nights here, we were welcomed and shown to our room which was spotless and lovely! The bathroom was huge and everything was clean! The bed was very comfortable! There was plenty of variety at breakfast, they served a traditional English breakfast along with fruits, cereal, yoghurt and toast, and tea, coffee, fruit juice and... More

We booked last minute as needed an extra night in Windermere, first impressions were that the room was average, clean and a bit dull being at the bottom of the house but we were comfortable enough. This BnB would have done the job, had we not been disturbed mid afternoon nap (with no prior warning!!) by the owner and two... More

This was the perfect location for a quick overnight stop in the lake district. Just a quick walk down the hill brought us into Bowness for a bite to eat in the evening. Breakfast was amazing. Lots of variety and plenty of it. The rooms may be all different but ours was comfortable and equipped with everything you need

From the moment we were greeted we knew we'd made the right choice for our short honeymoon escape. The guesthouse benefits from a genuinely personal touch and a breakfast that is second-to-none (vegans, vegetarians, and gluten intolerants rejoice!). The room was spotlessly clean, spacious, and comfortable. The generous en suite bathroom was also a major plus. We will definitely be... More

This is a well run bed and breakfast lodge. We needed and extra night in Windermere and apart from parking the lodge offered exactly what we were looking for, When we arrived there was limited parking out the front of the house with easy parking very nearby and therefore not a problem. The bedroom was well equiped and everything worked... More

Our room was nice and clean, and even had some homemade GF biscuits waiting for me on arrival! The room had everything you would really need; towels, haridryer, even wine glasses and a bottle opener. Breakfast was brilliant, the best GF breakfast I've had. There was fresh fruit and yogurt, as well as two types of GF cereal. The GF... More
