We can't rate this place highly enough. Our room was just stunning, the whole place is so warm, welcoming & homely. Breakfast was really nice & set in lovely surroundings. The owners are so friendly, nothing's too much trouble, we can't wait to return!

This is the second time staying with Vince & Shirley and once again our stay was faultless. From the moment you step through the front door you are made to feel if it is your own home. The bedrooms are just stunning and I can only give plaudits. Breakfast is just magnificent and what a way to set you up... More

My wife and I came from near Perth, Scotland. After a long and tiring (well over 4 hours) journey and with both of us mobility-impaired we were delighted with this gorgeous Bowness-on-Windermere place. It was everything and more we hoped it would be, with our room on the ground floor facing a lovely garden and great views of Lake Windermere... More

We have been made most welcome, by Vince and Shrley, over the past 13 years. Being restricted to 'school holiday times' we tended to use half term as a break and recovery period. You receive much more than, 'a good service'; it is most friendly, accommodating and the hosts go out of their way to ensure your stay is as... More

One of the very best B&B's I have ever stayed in. A warm welcome and guided tour greeted us on arrival. A very comfortable (warm) room with four poster bed. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. Lashings of hot water and nice "White co" toiletries just what you need in the Lakes in March! Breakfast was freshly cooked with local ingredients,... More
