Peter gave us a very warm welcome and our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast included a good choice of cereals, fruit juices and hot... More

We had a fantastic 2 night stay here. Its a 10 minute walk to the lake and 10 minute walk to Windemere town centre. Ideal location for Bowness-Windemere. It even has off road parking. It had all the personal touches, cookies, fresh milk, proper cups and a decent hairdryer (says the wife). We will be back.
