This is our second stay at Bonny Brae and once again couldn't fault our stay. Teresa is very welcoming and cooks a lovely breakfast. The room was spotless and warm which was needed as the weather was raining & windy. The position of the B&B is central so no need to use our car which is always a bonus.

Very convenient B & B with a wonderful host. Could not do enough for us and was very helpful with tips and ideas for days out. Ideal location, very clean with quality breakfast. Parking good on road outside with permit given for length of stay Will visit again.

The B&B is located in the very center of Windermere, so it's a bit noisy during the day, but the town quiets down in the evening. Room was small, but very clean. Biggest complant is that punctuality with arrival and breakfast time was overly demanding. One would expect a more relaxed atmosphere and flexibility, especially in a B&B in a... More

Location was central and easy walk to bars and restaurants (again thanks for... More

This is a wonderful little gem in Windermere. Our host was very friendly and accommodating of our requests. The room was tucked up on the top floor, and was very clean and modern -- everything we could ask for, including chocolates on our pillows (which our kids loved). Breakfast was delicious and home-made. We had to catch an early train... More

OK, we shoulda checked their website more carefully, since they did have photos. But our room for three with bunk beds was really only meant as a double. Great breakfast, but really, not enough room for all of us.

My two friends and I spent two nights at the Bonnie Brae in May. Our experience was colored by the fact I had stupidly booked the family room through Booking.com, which only indicated the room had three beds. It is not, repeat NOT the Bonny Brae's fault as their own website is accurate. The family room is intended for parents... More
