Spent three relaxing nights in this gorgeous place with my husband and family. We stayed in room 4 and my family in 3 and 6. I must say even if all the three rooms were different, each had its own beauty and charm to it. Simply loved it. It has all the comforts of home with proper wifi and lovely... More

Excellent weekend at a great B&B. Shirley and Vince were very accommodating with any request we had. Room was beautiful with 4 poster bed, dressing room and walk in shower. Breakfast was very good with a long list of meals plus anything else we wanted. Would recommend this B&B anytime.

Shirley and Vince were excellent hosts and a pleasure to meet. They gave us maps of the local area and showed us a nice walk along the lake into town. We stayed in the Queen Ann room. A big four poster bed which was very comfortable looked quite small in this very spacious room. A well stocked mini bar,tea and... More

We recently stayed for 4 nights and could not fault anything. Vince and Shirley were excellent hosts. We stayed in the Victorian suite and could not have been happier as the room was outstanding as were the breakfasts.

Shirley&Vince were extremely accommodating and helpful throughout our stay and in particular with organising a surprise for my wife with gifts on arrival, as well as recommending places to eat etc. Breakfast,as mentioned in many many previous reviews is excellent beyond words. 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
