We arrived and were immediately made welcome. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast selection was excellent and the quality was great too. The Ravensworth is a very short walk from Windermere train station and is ideally situated for the town centre. We will certainly return if we ever find ourselves wanting to book a few days... More

We arrived after a long drive from Birmingham & after first settling into our lovely double room we sat down for a delicious afternoon tea which was just what we needed before setting off to explore Windermere & the lake! Thank you Nick! The Ravensworth is perfectly situated near Windermere's shops, restaurants & pubs and the lake is within walking... More

Stayed on my own, small but well equipped room with single bed...good value for the rate. Lovely and warm. Added bonus of a comfortable guest lounge dining area and tea and coffee available if you want to relax and read other than in your room. Good choice at breakfast and very friendly hosts to top up tea and toast if... More

Had a really great time at the Ravensworth! Nick and Cheryl are wonderful hosts and helpful in telling us about some local walks. We stayed in a King Room and the room and bathroom were excellent with great amenities, particularly the bathrobes and chocolates (for booking direct)! The breakfast each morning was really nice and generously sized! Would highly recommend!

All round a nice, comfortable guest house. Very pleasant,helpful owners. Good breakfast, good room, good location, good parking. Only minor gripe was that the fan in the bathroom was very loud and sounded like it was on its last legs. Other than that....perfect.

Lovely, friendly staff. Pleasant atmosphere. Spotlessly clean. The food was lovely. The only downside was the bed was not comfortable. Even so we will definitely be going back. Just off the main street excellent.
