We attended a wedding in Windermere and needed a 'one night' stay. We contacted the hotel directly and they were very accommodating. The owners are extremely welcoming and you get a lovely homely feel as soon as you arrive. The room was bright, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was delightful. Wish we could have stayed longer!!!!! Well done guys... More

It is what it says on the tin, this is a beautiful B&B both from the outside and the inside. We stayed for two nights. Once you arrive you suddenly get a warm welcome from the owners. The room we had was comfy, clean and peaceful. The breakfast was magic... The home made granola is extraordinary (get the recipe :)... More

This year, me and my wife stayed once again at the Laurel Cottage. Alison and Wayne are lovely hosts, that really make you feel comfortable and at home. The location is great, overlooking the park, in a nice and quiet neighborhood and a 5 min. from Winderemere main street. Next to the standard full English breakfast, they also offer tasty... More

We have just returned from a weekend at Laurel Cottage and can not recommend this place enough! The owners made us feel extremely welcome and everything had been thought of - a fridge to use, wine glasses in the room, a bottle opener, proper sized mugs and delicious biscuits. Breakfast was tasty, including homemade muesli and cake! There is also... More
