We had a superior room, (which incidently was no more expensive than some of the other houses we have stayed in) . It was lovely, spacious warm and very... More

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.
