Spent a couple of nights in this b&b. The location is excellent, right in the centre of town. The landlady was also extremely helpful, especially on our last day when we were able to leave our luggage in the building. She advised us on a nice, scenic route to Bowness, and gave us directions to a secluded viewing spot on... More

I had booked a double room through laterooms for Christmas Day as a surprise for my girlfriend. Only to be informed by laterooms, over 3 weeks after booking and with only one week until the day, that the guest house no longer had the room available. There was no reason given to late rooms by the owners as to why... More

Just arrived home after a breathtaking stay at Bonnie Brae. The written word cannot express how greatful, delightful and helpful the owner Thersa is. Arrived on soggist of a Tuesday afternoon, and meet with the warmest greating that instantly cheered up us. Nothing and I mean nothing was too much trouble for Thersa - very knowledgable about the area, maps,... More

Just enjoyed a lovely two night stay at Bonny Brae. It was a five minute walk from the Windermere train station and upon arrival we were greeted by Theresa, who was extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely as was the bathroom, both of which were spotless! We were close to the shops and about a 15 minute walk... More

A two day stay. Lovely and close to the main strip of shops and restaurants, yet quiet enough as 200metres away. Met in arrival by Theresa who owns the joint, lovely lady, sorted a free parking permit in no time. Room nice and clean, all you could need and a nice bathroom - all spotless. Great great breakfasts. Lots of... More

I arrived in Windermere without a reservation, expecting the Tourist Office next to the train station to find me a place to stay but it was surprisingly closed. I walked down the hill and after knocking on several b&b doors found Bonny Brae. I stayed here 2 nights in Room #2 which had pleasant décor, 2 twin size beds, private... More

We visited Windermere for the weekend for my birthday. The location of Bonnie Brae was great, right in the centre of Windermere and a 30 minute walk to Bowness if you don't feel like taking the bus. Teresa was really friendly and helpful and recommended a lovely route away from the main road. The room was very clean, well equipped... More

Externally, this is a very attractive, natural stone house with flowers around the outside. I have been around some years, and never have I come across such a clean guest house! We were warmly welcomed by the landlady, Teresa, and given a parking permit to unload the car. Couldn't find parking near to the house later on but plenty of... More

First holiday alone, did no research into places to say, picked only on price (tight budget you see). Really friendly welcome from Teresa who after showing me to my room gave me advice on where to eat, how to get to the lake (both quickest route and best views). Room was perfect, quiet, good size, clean. Bathroom was as described... More
