Our room was a good size and very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was lovely. A very good selection and quality produce used. We would most definitely recommend... More

We stayed in a superior room with spa bath for the bank holiday weekend. We've stayed here a few times over the last few years, on this occasion just as a couple. We didn't use the swimming pool this time but it is lovely, we did have some sandwiches on the terrace outside. The guesthouse offers a bar service with... More

Enjoyed a single night stay here. Very friendly staff, clean accommodation and a lovely breakfast service. Tried the pool too, as the weather was the usual for the lake district. Ideally situated for windermere village and only a 20-30 minute walk to bowness.

We stayed three nights in October 2013 and loved the comfortable room, delicious breakfasts and friendly service. It was centrally located and great for the day-trips we took around the area. We would recommend it to any of our friends planning a trip to this beautiful region.

Barry and Kate were great hosts. The guesthouse was conveniently located a short walk down the hill from the train station and the bike hire shop. The heated swimming pool was a welcome way to relax after a day's riding and walking and there were plenty of restaurants nearby. The guesthouse was stocked with a variety of books and an... More
