My husband and I stayed here for our first wedding anniversary and we loved how peaceful it was. We loved our room which was number 4 and couldn't get enough of the delicious breakfasts! It's also in a perfect location and really easy to walk into town. A huge thank you to Shirley and Vince for making our first stay... 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

It would be difficult to find a friendlier, more helpful couple than Vince and Shirley who own and run this B&B. Just a gentle 10-15 minute stroll from the centre of Bowness, it's a convenient location, but unfortunately there's no lake view when there are leaves on the trees! Room good - large shower cubicle and plenty of water pressure... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Storrs Gate House. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Definitely a 5 star plus experience. Well worth the money. No complaints whatsoever. The Jacobean Suite is simply stunning.

A warm welcome to a clean, comfortable B & B. Nothing was too much trouble, from advising us where to eat on an evening, walking into Windermere and suggesting places to visit. Our room was spotless, four poster bed, clean towels daily. Breakfast was excellent freshly cooked for us each morning. Hosts Shirley and Vince wonderful.

Nice hosts, super comfortable mattress, great shower/bathroom (i.e., very clean, plenty of water pressure, etc.), and amazing English breakfast. Best to wake up hungry... From Storrs Gate House, there is a pleasant walk into Bowness, where the boats depart. Overall a very pleasant, albeit brief, stay. If I had to make a minor critique it would be that there was...

Our four nights spent in Windermere were fantastic and to top it off we had the best weather but what really made our holiday were Shirley and Vince and their pretty home.
