We stayed here for one night and really liked it. The people who run it are really nice and cook a good breakfast. The location is right between Windermere and bowness and you can walk to both towns from the house. The area is very nice as well with hiking trails, windermere lake and the historical farmhouse called hilltop nearby.

Glenville house was the perfect hotel, exceptionally clean, king size bed was so comfy. It was the little added extras that made our stay so lovely, cold lemon water in the fridge, home made short bread biscuits in our room in the morning. Freshly made cakes in reception for guests to have. Location is perfect, just a short walk into... More

We had to request a late check-in, as we couldn't get arrive until close to 9 p.m. In addition, one of our travel companions eats gluten-free and they were able to accommodate that request. The...

My partner and I arrived on the 8th November for two nights. We had a very warm welcome from Peter the owner who promptly booked us in and even gave us a choice of two rooms as we were the first guests to arrive, which meant we got to see more rooms than expected and choose the best room which...

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a two night stay at Glenville House. As my boyfriend was working on Saturday, we arrived at 8pm - a little later than the usual check in time but this was no problem whatsoever. There was ample parking and we were greeted by the helpful and friendly staff. There was even freshly... More
