Nice b&b just a mile away from the lake. Great location as many small shops on the doorstep. Received a warm welcome on arrival, cannot fault the room or breakfast based in the price. Would happily stay again.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was very nice! Breakfast was so so good and the service was top :) Rooms were clean and cosy. Nice hot showers, perfect after a long day of walking! Location was perfect for exploring Windermere with many shops, cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance. It might not be the most modern... More

Thank you for your review we are pleased you enjoyed your stay, and you found the service we provided was good, it was very nice to meet you. However just to clarify - all rooms have flat screen TV/DVD including satellite channels, most carpeted within the last 12 months, new beds, most rooms have been decorated including new, modern en-suites...

We had a great couple of days at this guest house in September. It's very centrally located and the owners are lovely and extremely helpful. The room we stayed in was small and could have been a bit more luxurious for my taste but was very clean with a fabulous bathroom. I would certainly recommend this guest house and Windermere...

Debbie and Dave provided us with just the right level of care and attention. An upgrade when we arrived showed how thoughtful they were. We had booked for 7 nights and enjoyed all 7 without complaint. the downstairs apartment is large enough and accommodating and having sky movies and sports in the evenings was icing on the cake (not that...

My wife and I had a lovely weekend break to celebrate our anniversary. This was my first time in a B&B/Guest House, we usually stay in hotels, so I wasn't totally sure what to expect. As otherwise stated, it is a great location, close to the station. Parking is very tight near the guest house but there is a pay... More

The room was clean and comfy bed. it was perfect for two of us to come back to after a day of exploring. Breakfast was hearty and we had a few conversations over breakfast with other guests....

We stayed at Cambridge House Guest house while visiting the Lake District. It is a convenient location being within walking distance from the train station and in the town of Windermere so close to restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. The Guest house itself is very plain - nothing fancy. Small rooms, Small shower with low pressure, tiny TV In room,... More

Thank you for your review, Cambridge House was built in 1873, it is a Victorian property in the centre of a Victorian Village, built over 140 years ago - it is not a purpose built hotel or motel with huge rooms and en-suites- The house was built when nobody had even heard of en-suite, but the modern traveller wants private...

Went during the summer. The price was very reasonable and included a hearty breakfast that set you up for the day. Located centrally and very quiet and respectful guest house. The place was also very clean.
