We wanted a quiet weekend away to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary, The Ravensworth fitted the bill perfectly. The hotel is within 2 minutes of Windermere village, consequently, we didn't need to travel far for our evening meals. The hotel is lovely and clean, the owner Nick made us a cup of tea on our arrival. Breakfasts are brilliant, cooked to... More

Quite excited to find the Ravensworth still operating, albeit as a 'Luxury' B&B rather than hotel, as we had stayed there for our honeymoon 35 years previous and thought it would be lovely to celebrate our anniversary there. Phoned rather than booked on line as wanted to see if we could stay in same room, how romantic! Spoke to Nick... More

We aren't really sure how to respond to this review so we did the 'take the dog for a walk and think' method before responding. The title disappointed is hard to take for 2 reasons, 1) we never like to think that our guests feel this way about a visit to us, and 2) we are disappointed because these guests... More

My partner and I stayed at The Ravensworth this past weekend, while on a short break to the Lake District. We booked at short notice (3 days in advance) and there were two rooms available, so we choose the superior room (room #4). It cost £360 for 3 nights, including breakfast, which we felt was a fair price. We had... More

Lovely B&B ideally located in Windermere. It's a 25 minute walk or a 5 minute drive down to Bowness and Lake Windermere, but the small town of Windermere has plenty of great restaurants and bars if that's what you require. The Ravensworth itself offered everything that we needed, a lovely room with really good en suite facilities, a kettle and... More

Thank you for your comments. If the only gripe was that you didn't get an extra slice of bacon at breakfast then I will be happy. All I can say is that as you didn't order the full Cumberland Grill, all you had to do was ask for an extra slice and we would have been happy to accommodate. The... More

Excellent B&B in Windermere. We had a beautiful room with a large double/king bed and a small elegant patio (room C), spotless and very nicely decorated. The breakfast was very good, with a self-service continental breakfast (coffee, tea, milk, cereals and fruit) plus several cooked options (inc full english). We also enjoyed the complimentary access to a local spa (about... More

Stayed over Easter and location is great - easy walking distance of Windermere and the lake, also a good base for exploring the rest of the Lake District by car. Very friendly staff, lovely breakfast and would definitely recommend for anyone to stay

I booked this as a surprise birthday present for my husband as he loves the lakes and we were so pleased with our choice of venue.
