We stayed at Montfort Cottage for a 3 night short break. Even before we got the, the owner Paul text to say our room would be ready for us when we arrived early afternoon.

The accommodation was amazing. The rooms were immaculate and the breakfasts were amazing! A wide range of choice cooked to perfection by Paul & Sue. Both were very knowledgeable and happy to give advice on what to do in the area. Ideally located about 10 minutes walk from the lake I would recommend booking here! Definitely will be back soon!

Great accomodation, breakfasts and hosts. Ideally located within walking distance between Windermere & Bowness, Montfort Cottage offers great ensuite accomodation. Paul & Sue's breakfasts offer great choice, from full English to Muffins with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, just mouthwateringly delicious! Paul & Sue are great hosts who helped with suggestions of places to visit. Will definitely visit again.

Amazing place; but I must say that the hosts are the icing on the cake. Very hospitable and accommodating. Had a great 5 days at the cottage, with the room in the attic being spacious yet cozy at once. Great decor, great breakfast, and perfect location sandwiched in between the lake and the station. Definitely recommend this place to everyone... More
