My husband and I spent a wonderful 4 nights at Glenville House. The Guest house/B&B has a relaxing, warm and welcoming feel. Beautifully decorated room and the finishing touches are a real treat (Mmm..... Lemin Cookies). Nothing is too much bother for Pete and Jayne, who look after your every need. We received a bottle of Prosecco on the day... More

We visited a few weeks ago for 3 nights and were greeted by Jayne on arrival, she made us feel welcome straight away. Lovely little touches with beautiful biscuits and cake, an excellent breakfast, Pete was great too, and clean and comfy rooms. The bed was excellent, had a great nights sleep. Would definitely come back in future!

We stayed here for a few days in early August. Everything was lovely: friendly hosts, comfortable, modern room, lovely food and especially the gorgeous home made complimentary cookies and cakes left in the room and entrance hall. The location is ideal for walking to local shops, restaurants and Lake Windermere. A lovely stay! Thank you.

Absolutely perfect! The room is beautifully decorated, the bed is the best one I've slept in at a hotel or B&B in quite some time! The amenities are just fantastic and include lots of thoughtful details such as fresh milk in the fridge for drinks in the room, dressing gowns and a lovely bottle of chilled lemon water.

Hosts were fantastic, we are bikers and were given the "gated patio garden" at the rear of the house to overnight our bikes in, with the hosts even parking their car across the gate to ensure no late night visits! Rooms are beautifully presented and cleanliness fantastic, lots of little foodie treats both in Reception area and in room. Breakfast... More

Stayed here over the weekend on Friday and Saturday night. Absolutely loved it. Everything is so well done. The bedrooms are beautiful and the little touches like the milk and lemon water in the fridge not to mention the wonderful lemon cookies in the bedroom make it so welcoming. The breakfast is excellent far superior to anything served in a... More

We stayed three nights last week in Glenville House ideally situated midway between Windermere & Bowness.. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly, jovial gentleman Peter and his co host Jane and shown to our well presented superior ground floor bedroom with a view over the garden toward the main road. The room was immaculate in every way with... More

Me and my partner loved this place and is the first thing we mention when people ask about our mini trip. The owner was so lovely and even researched where we could go fishing around the lake! The room was so so so comfy and really quiet. Perfectly situated right in the middle of the lake and the village. Breakfast... More

We've stayed at Glenville House on 4 occasions now and it never disappoints. Peter and Jayne are extremely friendly and nothing is too much to ask for. As it was my girlfriends birthday they'd written a card and left a box of chocolates on arrival to the room. The fresh milk in the room mini fridge is a nice bonus.... More
