I do a fair bit over travelling around, and Storrs Gate House is by far the most amazing place I have ever stayed. Two hosts where fantastic! Very polite and welcoming. The room was absolutely incredible, it had all of the comforts of home. Breakfast was beautiful and the two waitresses where very polite and attentive. I would recommend this... More

Locationwise: ideal as only mins walk from the shores of Lake Windemere, 15-20mins walk to Bowness for boat... More

On recommendation from relatives, recently spent four nights at the Storrs Gate Hotel near Bowness and came away most impressed. The owners, Shirley and Vince have a wonderful 'home' with six bedrooms, several with four poster beds. We received excellent service throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble and the breakfasts really set you up for the day. As... More

Beautiful place, lovely house and very comfortable room. The owners are a lovely, sweet couple. We had to leave early so they gave us a packed breakfast with eggs, croissants, juice, jam, butter and there was even a little packet of salt in there! I was there to run a half marathon and they were so helpful with the route... More

This is a nice B & B. The room is clean and comfortable. The location is great, right next to a Marina with a cute bar/restaurant. The lake and little town is just a short walk away. Very accommodating and friendly hosts.

Shirley & Vince are the ultimate hosts in this lovely B&B. Delightful, large bedroom, very clean, with a thoughtful minibar & proper wifi. Delicious breakfast, cooked by Shirley, to my request, very complete & carefully served. Vince kindly gave me local touring info. Prices recently reduced, extremely good value. Highly recommend.
