We are really delighted that you both enjoyed your stay with us in the king-size room up in the eaves of the house on it's own floor. (This room can only be booked direct with Storrs Gate House, not with major online booking agencies - enabling us to keep prices lower.) Thank you for your kind comments regarding our hospitality...

We have just returned from a really lovely old world B & B. Lovely owners, beautiful rooms. The four poster ones are amazing. We needed a twin room which again was lovely. Breakfasts just hit the spot which ever combination you choose, and the homemade preserves and marmalades are scrummy. Your lovely en suite showers rooms have everything from shampoo... More

Fantastic bed and breakfast run by the friendliest couple in Windermere. The rooms are fabulous especially the four poster rooms with dressing rooms and en-suite. The breakfast is to die for and the service faultless. The rooms have TV and sky and a well stocked mini bar. The garden outside is beautiful, keep an eye out for the Red Squirrel.... More
