When I decided to stay at Windermere for a trip to lake district I was a little worried that I was staying in the most touristy of places. So I wanted to be very careful of the B&B choice. I am happy to have chosen Ivy Bank. The B&B is close to 500 metres from the windermere train station, so... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, room was very clean and comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was delicious, bacon particularly good! Short walk to the shops and pubs in Windermere. Off street parking a bonus.

Stayed here for five nights, in July. The room was superb, everything you needed, from a fan in the room, to flannels in the bathroom, not many B&B's cover off everything. The room was also very clean, again, not something usually found in most B&B's. Ivy Bank is on a little side street which is nice and quiet, and yet... More

Very pleasant stay with my family, great location just minutes from Windermere centre, but quiet and with good secure parking. Hosts did everything possible to help us and the breakfasts were great! First choice next time I visit Windermere!

We stayed here just after Easter 2013 and had a lovely time - the owners really make you feel welcome and the breakfast is well catered for. Its very central to all you could possibly do in the Lake District so would highly recommend it.
